​Leicester City went some way to assuring fans that they're anything but a flash in the pan in the race for the Premier League title with a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night. 

Robert Huth's late header gave the Foxes a dramatic and unexpected victory, with Joe Allen's late equaliser against Arsenal sending Claudio Ranieri's side back level on points at the top of the table. 

With Manchester City failing to beat Everton at the Etihad Stadium, the Premier League's surprise package actually extended the gap between them and their rivals below them, and now have a full seven points separating themselves and Spurs in fourth place, with the north London side sliding into the grasp of the chasing pack behind. 

The two sides had faced off against each other in the FA Cup on the weekend, with Spurs grabbing a dramatic late equaliser, but the two teams made a total of 16 changes to their respective starting lineups as they went all-out to focus on their league challenge. 

Spurs will be disappointed in the manner of both the defeat and the goal which caused it, with the defence falling asleep a little at a corner to allow the giant Huth to nod home from Christian Fuchs' set piece with fewer than 10 minutes to play in the match. 

The home side dominated the game in almost every way, finishing with over 60% of the possession and firing off over 20 shots over the course of the 90 minutes without scoring. Their profligacy was such that not even 25% of those shots ended up on testing Kasper Schmeichel in the Foxes goal.

Leicester were far from clinical themselves, getting just two shots on target in the entire match, but were able to unlock the Premier League's best defence right when it mattered in the dying moments of the game to put themselves right back in the title conversation, as the only member of the top four to win on the night. 

Their lack of accuracy up front will concern Ranieri and co. slightly though, with only Spurs' poor defending at that late corner keeping them from going a fourth league game in a row without scoring - something they'll have to remedy if they're to keep up their incredible season. 

On the basis of everything they've done so far, it'd be hard not to believe they've got a fighting chance.
