Economic policy has left UK at risk of ‘unnecessarily painful recession’

Economic policy has left UK at risk of ‘unnecessarily painful recession’ The Resolution Foundation said the Bank of England has ‘blunted’ the tools it needs to use in order to prepare the UK for a recession.

Moussa Sissoko speaks to Spurs TV following Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League defeat against Leicester City.

Leicester have been dragged into the fight against relegation, after a perfect-storm sequence of weekend results. On Friday night, the Tigers lost their derby encounter at home to Northampton. Frankly, until some face-saving tries near the end, they were being put to the sword.

Moussa Sissoko has urged Tottenham to accept and move on quickly from their "painful" 2-1 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League.

A 25-yard James Maddison second-half strike condemned last season's Champions League finalists to their second defeat in the league season against the Foxes, in a result which saw Leicester move up to third in the table.

Tottenham meanwhile are seventh after the setback at the King Power Stadium and after the game, Mauricio Pochettino advocated their need to find a greater level of consistency at the start of the season.

  Late James Maddison winner gives Leicester all three points against Spurs Leicester City came from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 at the King Power Stadium thanks to a late James Maddison strike. Harry Kane gave Tottenham the lead with an unorthodox finish while falling off balance, before Leicester equalised with 20 minutes to go through Ricardo Pereira. Maddison then riffled a low effort into the bottom corner to give Leicester all three points. Both sides had a goal disallowed by VAR for offside during the game. Leicester and Tottenham came into the game level on points in the Premier League table, with one defeat each from their first five games.

A stunning defeat against Granada meant that Barcelona's poor start to the campaign continued with Luis Suarez returning to the line-up for the first time in LaLiga Santander since matchday one. Now becoming their worst start since 1994/95, Suarez could not hide his disappointment at the result.

ROB DRAPER AT THE KING POWER STADIUM: Leicester got what they deserved here. James Maddison secured the result his performance merited with his spectacular late strike.

"There is a lot of frustration, but we need to accept it, even if it is painful because we have another game on Tuesday," Sissoko said to Spurs TV.

"Even if it is a cup game, we have to be focused on that game (now).

"We need to work hard and analyse what went wrong (at Leicester) and move on.

"We don't have time to think too much because we have to recover as soon as possible and be ready for Tuesday if we want to have a good game and win.

"There is a lot of frustration, but we need to move on."

Spurs are still yet to win away in the Premier League since January.

Tottenham face Colchester United in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, followed by a home clash with Southampton in the top flight on September 28.
