Tottenham haven't won away in the Premier League since January


Leicester temporarily move up to second in the Premier League table after coming from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1. 

VAR was once again at the centre of controversy, with what would have been Spurs' second goal ruled out when Heung-min Son was adjudged to be 1mm offside. 

Within two minutes, the Foxes went up the other end and equalised before James Maddison scored the winner five minutes from full-time. 

Leicester had themselves had a goal ruled out in the first half - and rightly so - but it is Mauricio Pochettino who will understandably feel hard-done-by. 

That said, there are serious questions to be asked of the Lilywhites. 

The north Londoners have now thrown away the lead in three of their last four games. 

That blitz of a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace is increasingly looking like an anomaly in what could unravel into a disappointing campaign. 

Yet these problems date back a long way. The thrill of reaching the Champions League final aside, Spurs haven't looked their best in 2019. 

Spurs' away record 

In fact, after once again slipping up on the road, they haven't won an away Premier League game since all the way back in January. 

So, what on earth went wrong this time? VAR aside, Paolo Gazzaniga failed to cover himself in glory as he came in for Hugo Lloris, whose wife was expected to give birth.

Dele Alli was left behind altogether, while Lucas Moura and Christian Eriksen started on the bench.

Victor Wanyama came on to protect Spurs' lead, but the Kenyan's first two contributions were giving the ball away and getting booked. 

Things should at least get easier in midweek, when Pochettino's men travel to Colchester in the third round of the League Cup. 

However, there's suddenly an awful lot riding on their next league outing against Southampton, which - and they ought to count their blessings - is at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
