Tottenham's Pochettino critical of referee Oliver for 'unbelievable' Son booking

Tottenham's Pochettino critical of referee Oliver for 'unbelievable' Son booking

Leicester called for offside, but their protests were in vain as Sanchez launched himself into a diving header that flashed past Kasper Schmeichel.

Oliver Skipp charged down Ricardo Pereira's clearance, Fernando Llorente fed Eriksen, who added to his earlier assist by sending a low shot into the bottom corner in the 63rd.

Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Skipp, Eriksen, Son, Llorente.

But Vardy partly made amends in the 76th when he turned in Pereira's cross from close range.

Any threat of a comeback was killed by Son in injury-time, though, as he raced clear on the break into Leicester's half of the field before slotting the ball beyond Schmeichel.

Spurs were indebted to Hugo Lloris for their victory over Leicester, with the goalkeeper saving Jamie Vardy's penalty and denying the Foxes an equaliser shortly before Christian Eriksen made it 2-0.

"Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character", said Spurs captain Lloris ahead of the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Wednesday.

There only are two possibilities from hereon in: Leicester go on a run and roar back into contention for a UEFA Europa League spot, or they continue to be their own enemies, which will end with Puel bidding farewell to another English club.

Alan Shearer has admitted that he was wrong to rule Tottenham out of the Premier League title race back in December.

"In the circumstances, my players are heroes".

He also missed a Bundesliga match against RB Leipzig with ligament problems in January and was unavailable for the Champions League group game against Monaco.

- Spurs have received four bookings for simulation in the Premier League this season, the joint-most in the competition alongside North London rivals Arsenal.
