Tottenham Hotspur vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report

Prior to Tottenham's tie against Leicester on Sunday afternoon, Shearer confessed that he has been impressed with the way Mauricio Pochettino's men have stayed within touching distance of the league's front runners Liverpool and Manchester City.

"When you compare the situation with the penalty against us, unbelievable".

But Lloris stepped up when it mattered most with an excellent save, a pivotal moment as we went 2-0 up minutes later, giving ourselves a platform to go on and win the game.

In the space of just a few weeks, Tottenham Hotspur have lost two of their most important attacking players to injury, crashed out of both domestic cups and also found their way (just about) back into a title race.

Dortmund played on Saturday and the Argentinian believes his side are now at a massive disadvantage by having 24 hours less to recover.

'I feel so embarrassed because I can accept to play today [Sunday] if Dortmund play today and then we play Wednesday. Twenty-four hours in this type of competition is massive.

Pochettino felt Son had a more convincing case than the penalty that Leicester were awarded when James Maddison went down after a challenge by Jan Vertonghen. It doesn't mean that we're not going to compete. For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense.

His first kick of the match was brilliantly saved by Hugo Lloris, but Puel had no issue with Vardy taking it. "They all need to make progress and we will be passionate with these players".

"He was ready to come on the pitch and I gave him the opportunity to take the penalty", the Frenchman said. It was a game in our hands, and we had a lot of chances and created a lot of good moves. But we defended them well and when, in the 91st minute, Chilwell's cross was whacked clear by Sissoko, it put Son in the clear with just Schmeichel to beat and the striker made no mistake to wrap up the points. "All the game we had a lot of chances".

The Lilywhites now find themselves five points behind second-placed Liverpool FC as they look to try and keep themselves in the title race.
