Leicester quickly equalise after Tottenham goal is harshly ruled out by VAR

Oh Tottenham, don't go changing.

It looked as though Spurs were on course for an impressive result in the Premier League when they fired themselves into a 2-0 lead at the King Power Stadium.

They initially claimed the advantage in the first-half when Harry Kane, despite falling onto the pitch, managed to fire the ball past Kasper Schmeichel.

Then, before the Foxes had any chance to retaliate after the break, the away end erupted once again as Serge Aurier bagged his first goal of the season.

However, that didn't last for long as chaos ensued on the pitch, Twitter feeds exploded and fans tore their hair out with VAR intervening.

VAR controversy strikes

The goal was essentially ruled out after Heung-min Son was adjudged to be - according to the Independent - as little as a single millimetre offside. 

And just to make matters worse for Spurs, Leicester rode the wave of momentum from that U-turn and bagged themselves an equaliser. 

Jamie Vardy bombed down the left flank and despite seeing his cross deflected, Ricardo Pereira arrived at the far post to draw the scores level.

It was a blow that came just two minutes after the technology annulled Aurier's goal and it's more than understandable that fans are displeased with the persnickety nature of the decision.

Torrid run of form for Tottenham

Then, just to make matters even worse, James Maddison scored from long range to put the Foxes into the lead, rounding off a complete turnaround for Brendan Rodgers' men.

Defeat at Leicester means that the club are without a Premier League win away from home since January and they find themselves languishing in fifth place.

And it will sting even more for the fact Tottenham also surrendered a lead in mid-week, allowing Olympiacos to eat away at their 2-0 advantage until the spoils were shared.

Leicester, on the other hand, will be thanking their lucky stars for VAR, but will also pat themselves on the back for a comeback that elevates them to second place.
