You Can't Doubt Hugo Lloris' Quality - Mauricio Pochettino

Prior to Tottenham's tie against Leicester on Sunday afternoon, Shearer confessed that he has been impressed with the way Mauricio Pochettino's men have stayed within touching distance of the league's front runners Liverpool and Manchester City. It's so hard. I'm a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so unusual, the situation today. "We conceded more chances than usual, but I think the victory is fair", Pochettino said.

"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".

"If we are being targeted (by referees), I don't understand why".

"We came from a tough Christmas period when the teams in Germany and Spain were enjoying some holidays", he said.

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

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

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

Kasper Schmeichel blocked a Danny Rose strike after a good run from the left-back, but Leicester looked the more threatening of the sides in the opening half-hour, with James Maddison twice dragging shots wide from good positions.

A rapid exchange of passes opened up a chance for Maddison, prompting Jan Vertonghen to rashly bundle over the midfielder. Known for accurate spot-kicks, Jamie Vardy took responsibility but failed to beat Lloris from 12-yards out.

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes.

Oliver had previously waved away Son's appeal for a spot-kick when he was felled by Sadio Mane in the 95th minute of September's 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool. Christian Eriksen keeps his place in attack with Heung-min Son also supporting the recalled Fernando Llorente - who leads the line up front in the absence of Harry Kane.
