Tottenham vs Leicester City, Premier League

Leicester squandered a string of chances, though - including a missed penalty from Jamie Vardy - and Pochettino acknowledged that it was a win they ground out without being on top form.

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.

Spurs though threw the first punch after Davidson Sanchez nodded home Christian Eriksen's inch-perfect cross on 33 minutes.

This gritty success was the ideal preparation for hosting Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last 16 first leg on Wednesday.

Speaking on the BBC's Match of the Day 2 (10/02/2019), Premier League legend Alan Shearer suggested where Tottenham's biggest weakness was.

Demarai Gray headed a great chance straight at Hugo Lloris as Leicester threatened again early in the second half, with Claude Puel turning to Vardy on the bench before the hour-mark, but the striker saw his penalty comfortably saved by Lloris after Jan Vertonghen was judged to have fouled Maddison.

- Since the start of the 2014-2015 campaign, Vardy has lost 15 Premier League games in which he has scored, more than any other player in the competition. 'Unbelievable. When you compare with the penalty against us, unbelievable.

Vardy was introduced as a substitute after the spot-kick had been awarded and immediately took it with his very first touch of the match.

"Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".

The South Korean went down in the penalty area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Tottenham player to be yellow carded for simulation this season.

Asked whether he was pleased to see Vardy taking the penalty, Pochettino said: "Now, yes, but more than the mistake of whoever shot, it was a massive save from my keeper".

It proved a key moment as Eriksen doubled Tottenham's lead just three minutes later as he picked up Llorente's lay-off on the edge of the box and curled an inch-perfect effort into the corner past Schmeichel.

Two minutes from the break, Kieran Trippier's fantastic cross found Fernando Llorente, who failed to finish off the move.
