"An even game, we conceded more chances than we normally concede", Pochettino told reporters.

They report that the Argentine was convinced to join Spurs by his countryman Mauricio Pochettino back in 2017, shunning the riches on offer with the French champions.

Christian Eriksen created the opener before scoring himself as Tottenham beat Leicester 3-1 on Sunday, putting the north London club five points behind front-runners Manchester City and Liverpool.

First came the outrage over dropping Jamie Vardy, then followed the commotion of letting the striker take a penalty with his first touch.

"Do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?"

"It was a penalty, the same referee", he added as he recalled an incident when the club were denied a penalty against Liverpool earlier this season. When you compare the situation with the penalty for Leicester, unbelievable.

"Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character", Lloris said.

But Shearer believes Spurs can't be so complacent against bigger teams, and has hinted that Borussia Dortmund could hurt them in their Champions League clash on Wednesday if they continue the way they are.

With all the circumstances that happened during the game and this season, it's so important to recognise that they are doing a fantastic effort and I am so proud of that.

Three minutes later the game took another twist as we doubled our lead when Oliver Skipp - on his second Premier League start - closed down a clearance, Llorente picked up the loose ball and laid it off for Eriksen, who drilled in right-footed from 20 yards.

Another game, another goal and another assist from the ever-dangerous Denmark worldwide as Spurs kept pace with the league leaders, despite Leicester having the better of the chances at Wembley.

"We need to obviously improve the team performance and we need the stadium full and ready to push and to help us".

In a freakish 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. "Come on, we're one of the nicest teams on the pitch".
