A football supporter has been arrested on suspicion of assault after allegedly spitting at a steward during Leicester’s Premier League match with Tottenham on Wednesday night.    

The north London club looked destined to suffer a 2-1 defeat before two goals from Steven Bergwijn sealed all three points in the most dramatic fashion.

The substitute scored a double in stoppage time to send the away end into pandemonium as victory saw their side move to within one point of the Champions League places.

However the top-flight clash has been overshadowed by the news a supporter was arrested at the King Power Stadium.

‘A 22-year-old man from Bedfordshire has been arrested on suspicion of assault. He will remain in police custody,’ a Leicestershire Police spokeswoman said.

‘It’s alleged that he spat at a steward at the game.’
