Pochettino hails Tottenham 'heroes' after fourth straight league win

Pochettino hails Tottenham 'heroes' after fourth straight league win

"We have a lot of possibilities not just the penalty, to get back in the game and score first".

After the game, Pochettino was fuming with Oliver's decision - with the Argentine boss suggesting that he believes title rivals Liverpool have been the beneficiaries of some of the referee's more questionable decisions this term.

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.

The game also saw another penalty debate, after Son Heung Min appeared to be tripped by Leicester defender Harry Maguire in the first half but referee Michael Oliver brandished a yellow card to the South Korea global.

"Then you look at Liverpool and the last minute".

"Today do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?"

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.




After replacing Demarai Gray with his side trailing to Davinson Sanchez's headed opener, James Maddison was brought down inside the box by Jan Vertonghen with Vardy already warming up and ready to come on.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has called on the club's supporters to rally behind the team ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League knockout tie against Borussia Dortmund. I think we need to improve the team performance.

Puel said: "I gave him the opportunity to take the penalty".

"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. First of all we need to keep our place in the top four and then maybe more.

Leicester, who missed good chances at a steady rate through the game, have now lost five of their last six games in all competitions as the pressure grows on Claude Puel.

A 3-1 home win over Leicester City on Sunday ensured that Tottenham head into their clash with Dortmund full of confidence and Lloris will be hoping to build on his own match-winning performance.
