We won but against a bigger side we couldn't have won that type of game. "Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable", Pochettino told reporters after the game.

Christian Eriksen created the opener before scoring himself as Tottenham beat Leicester 3-1 on Sunday, putting the north London club five points behind front-runners Manchester City and Liverpool.

The Foxes gave a good account of themselves at Wembley and could've come away with something more, had Jamie Vardy not missed a crucial penalty that would've levelled the game for his side.

"It is so hard to understand why, when we had one week clear to play this game and to schedule it on a different day, and only I am explaining my feelings and how hard it is to prepare a game when you only have today and then you're going to need to play".

Vardy had scored his previous seven penalties and would later reduce the arrears, but Spurs would seal the win through Heung-Min Son in stoppage time.

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes.

"They play fantastic football", Lloris said.


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

Maddison was set to take the penalty, but with Vardy already readying himself to come on, Claude Puel opted to send the striker on for Demarai Gray to take the spot-kick.

Despite his obvious frustrations with some of the decisions, Pochettino was pleased with his side's overall performance - though it's clear he already has one eye on Wednesday's Champions League tie with Borussia Dortmund.

"Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character", Lloris said.

Jamie Vardy stepped off the bench to take Leicester's penalty against Tottenham - but his first touch did not go as planned.

"It's fantastic. Sometimes winning games when you're not at your best". We need to improve the team performance compared to yesterday and we need the stadium to help us.

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. First of all we need to keep our place in the top four and then maybe more.
