Spurs’ Pochettino slams referee over ‘unbelievable’ Son booking

Spurs’ Pochettino slams referee over ‘unbelievable’ Son booking

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

Mauricio Pochettino saluted his "fantastic" players after they stayed on the coat-tails of Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race by grinding out a 3-1 victory over Leicester City at Wembley on Sunday, despite the Foxes pushing them to the limit.

The France global kept out Jamie Vardy's penalty, which was the striker's first touch of the game, and made a number of other important stops as Spurs won 3-1 at Wembley.

Son was booked in the first half after going down in the area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Spurs player to be yellow-carded for simulation this season.

It was the second time Oliver has denied Son a penalty at Wembley this season after he chose not to award a spot-kick in the final moments of Liverpool's 2-1 win in September.

"I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so odd the situation today".

Leicester boss Claude Puel was left frustrated as his side failed to make the most of their opportunities, but he did not pin any blame on substitute Vardy, who missed the penalty with his first touch of the ball.

According to Lloris, Tottenham should deliver a big performance in champions league this week against Dortmund at Wembley to consider qualifying. We won the game thanks to our spirit and character.

He said: "I feel so embarrassed because I can accept to play today if Dortmund play today and then we play Wednesday, but I cannot understand why we're playing with a massive disadvantage".

"It's fantastic. Sometimes winning games when you're not at your best". An even game, we conceded more chances than we normally concede.

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.

Another game, another goal and another assist from the ever-dangerous Denmark worldwide as Spurs kept pace with the league leaders, despite Leicester having the better of the chances at Wembley. We need to obviously improve team performance. "Come on, we're one of the nicest teams on the pitch".
