'Not rocket science' - Leicester fans criticise Claude Puel for decision vs Tottenham

13 February 2019

"Now we need to recover in our best way and prepare for the next game here against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night in the first leg of the last 16 and that's going to be a tough, tough game, but this is going to be a massive boost".

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. 'Without that, we could not win.

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.

Although Pochettino's comments did not relate to a specific incident, it's likely that he was referring to Oliver's decision to award Liverpool two debatable penalties against Arsenal earlier this season, as well as his decision not to award Spurs a penalty in the last minute at Anfield - in an incident that again involved Son.

The Foxes' misery was then compounded when Eriksen made it 2-0 to Spurs just three minutes later.

"Today do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?"

Puel opted to leave Vardy on the bench, but the former England striker came on to take Leicester's penalty after James Maddison was fouled.

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.

"Leicester played fantastic and we won the game thanks to our spirit and character". But sometimes you deserve to win, like the game against Man United, and you lose.

Pochettino's side took the lead through Davinson Sanchez's first goal for the club, but they were indebted to Hugo Lloris for saving Jamie Vardy's spot-kick after the interval at Wembley.

We'll have team news for you very shortly. "Come on, we're one of the nicest teams on the pitch".

"It was the same referee, but now I don't know how he has measured the situation", Pochettino said, as quoted by the Mirror.

Another game, another goal and another assist from the ever-dangerous Denmark global as Spurs kept pace with the league leaders, despite Leicester having the better of the chances at Wembley.
