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

Pochettino's side took the lead through Davinson Sanchez's first goal for the club, but they were indebted to Hugo Lloris for saving Jamie Vardy's spot-kick after the interval at Wembley.

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

Tottenham Hotspur's fourth consecutive Premier League win might have turned on that incident.

Knockout competition defeats to Chelsea and Crystal Palace without Dele Alli and Harry Kane as well as Heung-min Son looked like they could derail Spurs' entire season, but they have recovered with back-to-back wins in the league - both thanks to late goals - against Watford and Newcastle.

Pochettino's side face Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium next time out in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.

It must be said though, that Spurs have been attached to potential interest in a number of players over the past two transfer windows, only to see nobody brought through the doors in London.

We only held a 1-0 lead when Maddison went down under Vertonghen's challenge and referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot. For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense.

"I think we're talking about one of the best keepers in the world, with a lot of experience and having played a lot of games here at Tottenham".

Leicester have lost four of their last five league games, increasing the pressure on under-fire boss Claude Puel.

Puel opted to leave Vardy on the bench, but the former England striker came on to take Leicester's penalty after James Maddison was fouled.

And it was Leicester with the first sight of goal after the break too, Ricardo Pereira's cross falling perfectly to Demarai Gray but his header from 10 yards was straight at Lloris, while our skipper was also tested by shots from Gray and Chilwell in the next few minutes, but saved both comfortably.

"It was the same feeling against (Manchester) United, we wasted a lot of chances".

"We don't know, if it was a good thing or not a good thing".

"Sometimes you can win games not playing your best".

The Danish playmaker is out of contract at White Hart Lane at the end of next season, and has regularly been linked with a switch to Real Madrid, so were Tottenham to find the man to take his place, they could decide to cash in on their star.
