Tottenham vs Leicester: Mauricio Pochettino baffled by Son yellow card

Tottenham vs Leicester: Mauricio Pochettino baffled by Son yellow card

Tottenham ran out 3-1 winners against Leicester, thanks to goals from Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min, maintaining the five-point gap to Liverpool and City at the top of the table in the process.

In a freaky turn of events, Vardy came off the bench for Gray and walked straight up to the spot to take the penalty, only for Lloris to dive to his right and push it away to safety.

"The problem is, I told Michael Oliver [about] the situation against Liverpool in the last minute that should have been a penalty". Leicester played so well.

It must be said though, that Spurs have been attached to potential interest in a number of players over the past two transfer windows, only to see nobody brought through the doors in London.

'My players are heroes. The effort is incredible. If we win some title, in the history, but if not, in the history too, because against all the circumstances. how we fight and show character is wonderful'. For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense.

And it was Leicester with the first sight of goal after the break too, Ricardo Pereira's cross falling perfectly to Demarai Gray but his header from 10 yards was straight at Lloris, while our skipper was also tested by shots from Gray and Chilwell in the next few minutes, but saved both comfortably.


"It is so hard to understand why, when we had one week clear to play this game and to schedule it on a different day, and only I am explaining my feelings and how hard it is to prepare a game when you only have today and then you're going to need to play". "He showed it at the World Cup, lifting the trophy, and he showed it in five, six years here".

A statement said the club are undergoing "remedial works on the safety systems" before they could move forward to the final stages of testing, leaving the door open to the possibility that Spurs could play their remaining home games at Wembley this season. "I think he's going to feel awesome now".

"It was the same feeling against (Manchester) United, we wasted a lot of chances". We didn't find the good finish.

"Sometimes you can win games not playing your best". But there are regrets after all these chances.

"Normally Jamie takes the penalty and I gave him the opportunity. All the game we had a lot of chances".
