Tottenham 3 Leicester City 1: Eriksen seals victory after Vardy misses penalty

Moussa Sissoko poses for

Leicester had 20 shots to Spurs' 12 and were guilty of missing several chances through James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, while Vardy's spot-kick was saved by Hugo Lloris just three minutes before Eriksen made it 2-0.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "Do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?"

"It was fantastic. Sometimes you win games not playing at your best".

Since a very well managed and earned win against Everton at Goodison Park on New Year's Day, it has all gone downhill for the Foxes, bringing Claude Puel back into the red zone where he stood before he casually derailed Chelsea and Manchester City's respective Premier League campaigns.

The South Korean went on to get on the scoresheet at Wembley, putting the finishing touches on a win that had been set up by Davinson Sanchez and Christian Eriksen goals.

Tottenham will now turn their attention to the Champions League, with the first leg of their last-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund taking place on Wednesday.

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

His vital kept deteriorating and he developed recurrent episodes of cardiac arrest before being declared dead at 7.26pm. The documents show he left all his assets to his wife, Jennifer Robertson , and made her the executor of his estate.

Son has now become the fourth Spurs player to be booked for diving this season and, when Pochettino was asked whether his side are being unfairly targeted, he replied: "I don't understand why, if that's what you say".

We only held a 1-0 lead when Maddison went down under Vertonghen's challenge and referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot. I think we are such nice people. Frustratingly for Leicester fans, those two impressive results aside, they have lost five of their last six games in all competitions, including defeats to Newport, Cardiff and Southampton.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino knows that he will need to make improvements to his squad, not just to make the club better, but also to keep the stars he now has at his disposal happy and content enough to remain at White Hart Lane.

"He was ready to come on the pitch and I gave him the opportunity to take the penalty", the Frenchman said.

We were struggling to find our rhythm as the visitors started to dominant and push us back, Vardy and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho spurning good efforts and they were peppering our box with crosses high and low.

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

"I said to Jamie Vardy he can take the penalty".
