Pochettino hoping for positive news on injured Trippier

"Yes it is true if you said to me would you prefer all my global players stay here and rest for two weeks without competition, I would say yes", he said.

Some injured Leicester players, including England defender Harry Maguire, led a march of fans from the city centre to the stadium ahead of the match. They did look threatening at times, but they lacked a cutting edge to their attacking play and will rue a number of golden opportunities they squandered.

It was a great day for teams at the bottom of the Premier League with Cardiff and Newcastle both winning and Huddersfield, Burnley and Southampton picking up valuable points.

Tottenham claimed a fourth successive win thanks to Juan Foyth's second-half header in a 1-0 defeat of Crystal Palace.

"I am happy with him".

"When you are a centre-back you are involved in this type of situation but the confidence and the trust is massive from us".

"It says a lot about his character after conceding those two penalties at Wolves. I say again to our fans be patient, because it is going to be awesome".

Trippier is now the ninth Spurs player who went to the World Cup to have suffered an injury this season, along with Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Demble, and Davinson Sanchez.

They have lost nearly all their big games and have been nowhere near their seductive best, yet they are still in the Champions League, just about, and a win today would take them to within two points of the leaders Manchester City. It's not only the pressure from the coaching staff, fans and club.

"They took advantage from a corner with one of the very few chances they had, whereas we laboured away and didn't take one of ours".

The omens were not good for Palace before kickoff when Wilfried Zaha, without whom they seldom win, was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

- Palace have lost seven consecutive top-flight matches against a single opponent for the first time ever.

A change of shape midway through the first period helped the visitors take a strangehold of the game, with Dele Alli dropping deeper to influence the game on his first Premier League start in over two months.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson reacted by introducing Jeffrey Schlupp for Max Meyer in the pursuit of greater width, and the winger almost rewarded him when crossing to Ayew on the counter before watching goalkeeper Hugo Lloris collect.
