​Craig Shakespeare has dodged any questions about his managerial future at the King Power, after a miserable night for him and his Leicester side, who slumped to a 6-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. 


The Foxes were only 2-0 down when they went into the half time break, and even pulled a goal back after a strong start to the second half, with Ben Chilwell scoring his first ever goal to give a glimmer of hope to the fans in the King Power.

Unfortunately their visitors roared back again, and again, and again. And again. 


He said post match, according to ​Sky Sports: "At half-time I thought we needed to cause them more problems. For 10-15 minutes of the second half we played on the front foot and got back into the game but the third goal for them seemed to take the confidence away from us.


"We have to be more competitive against them, we gave them too much space, we have to make sure we get blocks in. The goals were too easy in my view but we haven't had too many performances like that. We will reflect on it in the morning. We have another game on Sunday and we have to pick ourselves up quickly.

"They opened us up and punished us. I have to take some responsibility but at 3-1 we looked a forlorn side in the second half.


"I haven't seen that in us for ages. But we came up against a quality side. It is something I will have to look at but as players, to a man, since I have been in charge, they have been excellent and I have not seen that before.


"It is a disappointed dressing room and words were exchanged. They are an honest bunch and they will be disappointed with the result, and we have to then move on."


After taking over after the Foxes after Claudio Ranieri was dismissed, the former Premier League champions had enjoyed something of a turnaround in form, seeing them drift clear of relegation worries, even reaching the promised land of mid-table mediocrity.  


When asked about his future, Shakespeare was vague, insisting that he was simply looking to finish the season as strongly as possible. "The planning for me just starts for Bournemouth this weekend. That is all I can focus on. 


"There's been a bit of recruitment which I've been privy to but for me is to focus on football."
