The attacker, 19, rifled home at the second attempt shortly past the hour mark to put the Eagles back in the contest after first-half strikes by Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy.

Jamie Vardy’s 41st minute strike, after excellent wing-play from Ricardo Pereira, got the Foxes off to the perfect start in the 2021/22 Premier League season and they’re next in action on Monday evening against West Ham United at London Stadium.

All three of the Foxes’ trips to Wembley Stadium in 2021 have ended in 1-0 wins, with Iheanacho the scorer of a solitary goal in the FA Cup Semi-Final in April, before his spot-kick this weekend secured Leicester’s second Community Shield success.

Both players are set to be out for around another two weeks, during which time the Foxes will play four Premier League matches, including hosting Liverpool at the King Power Stadium, and their FA Cup fifth-round tie against Brighton.

Jamie Vardy’s penalty and a Toby Alderweireld own goal moved the Foxes to within four points of leaders Liverpool as Spurs for once could not rely on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min to dig them out of trouble.

James Maddison’s deflected strike sent Brendan Rodgers’ side on their way before Jamie Vardy scored his 12th goal of the season to double the advantage.

The Foxes moved above both Spurs and Liverpool in the table after ending a four-game winless run at an empty Bramall Lane, to push the Blades ever closer to a return to the Championship.
