Pochettino hails Tottenham 'heroes' after fourth straight league win

Pochettino hails Tottenham 'heroes' after fourth straight league win

Spurs fans enjoyed seeing their superstar playmaker come back to form, with many commenting on his performance and the quality of his display against Leicester on social media after the final whistle. The problem is, I told Michael Oliver, the situation of Liverpool in the last minute that should be a penalty, but it was a clear penalty.

Their attention now turns to the Champions League, where they host Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, though Pochettino is unhappy with the scheduling of this game against the Foxes.

"I'm more relaxed because we won the game - we got three important points - but so disappointed with the situation". I am a person who accepts the mistakes, but today it was so clear.

"He's one of the best keepers in the world", he said.

"It was the same referee but now I don't know how he has measured the situation".

Spurs head into the game looking to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League as they look to keep up the pressure on Liverpool FC and Manchester City at the top of the table.

Still angry about the decision after the match, Pochettino fumed: "It's unbelievable".

Pochettino's men channelled their frustration into a sustained assault on the Leicester goal.

Tottenham were rewarded with a well-worked 33rd minute opener.

But they were behind on 33 minutes when Sanchez headed Eriksen's cross past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel from just inside the six yard box.

Replays showed the Colombia defender was just onside as he scored his first goal for Tottenham since his 2017 move from Ajax.

Leicester's positive start to the second half brought a golden opportunity to equalise with their 60th minute penalty.

Maddison took the ball and was going to take the spot-kick, only for Vardy to enter the fray and take the penalty with his first touch of the game.

A rapid exchange of passes opened up a chance for Maddison, prompting Jan Vertonghen to rashly bundle over the midfielder.

"I know bookmakers have them as third favourites but, for the points they have racked up, you simply can not take them out of the discussion".

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.
