Leicester City face Tottenham Hotspur in their FA Cup third-round replay at the King Power Stadium following an exciting 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane 10 days ago.

The game will be the 106th time that the two sides have met, but where did it all begin? Fantasy football game www.oulala.com’s have taken a look back in time.

The first match ever played between Leicester and Spurs was way back on 10 January 1914, 102 years ago. The Foxes were then named ‘Leicester Fosse’. The match coincidentally also came in the FA Cup. However, this time it was in the competition’s first round.

Tottenham netted five goals, scored by winger Herbert Middlemiss, forwards James Cantrell and William Minter netted one each, while inside left Bert Bliss hit a brace.

Leicester matched Spurs, netting five themselves. The goals came from left-back Samuel Currie, forward Francis Mortimer, with inside right Claude Stoodley scoring a hat-trick.

The replay five days later saw Spurs come out 2-0 winners to progress to the 2nd round.

Could we see a ten-goal thriller tonight? A Riyad Mahrez hat-trick? … Stranger things have happened.
