"Tottenham are a great team".
Spurs could have levelled nearly instantly but were left disappointed as Dele Alli ended a counter attack with a tame shot at Kasper Schmeichel, something the visitors would be made to pay for before half-time.
"I think he was a little frustrated in the second half without the possibility to touch more balls and to play", said the Frenchman.
He had been quiet again in this match before he collected the ball out on the right, drifted towards the area and curled a lovely left-foot shot beyond Lloris and into the far top corner of the net.
Shinji Okazaki sent a header over the crossbar early on but Tottenham enjoyed a lot of possession in the second half and gradually stepped up the pressure on the hosts.
Danny Rose is also likely to come back in but Harry Winks has fallen ill and will have to be assessed while Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) are both out.
Fellow substitute Fernando Llorente should have equalised three minutes later but somehow poked Serge Aurier's driven cross over the crossbar from inside the six-yard box.
It wasn't long before Spurs did then find a way back into the game, courtesy of their talisman, Kane.
That proved to be the clearest chance Spurs created in the final minutes of the game and despite half-hearted calls of a late penalty for Spurs, Anthony Taylor blew for full-time to give Leicester the win in a brilliant game of football.
