Harry Kane Premier League 2018-19

Harry Kane Premier League 2018-19

Speaking to reporters, he said: "Do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?"

"It was the same referee but now I don't know how he has measured the situation". I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so unusual the situation.

But Lloris stepped up when it mattered most with an excellent save, a pivotal moment as we went 2-0 up minutes later, giving ourselves a platform to go on and win the game.

Spurs head into the game looking to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League as they look to keep up the pressure on Liverpool FC and Manchester City at the top of the table.

Pochettino added Spurs striker Harry Kane, who injured his ankle last month, was making progress but would not return in time for Sunday's game or the Champions League last-16 first leg against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Dortmund played on Saturday and the Argentinian believes his side are now at a massive disadvantage by having 24 hours less to recover.

"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".

The game's biggest talking point came on the hour mark when, with Vardy ready to come on, referee Michael Oliver awarded Leicester a penalty after Jan Vertonghen was adjudged to have brought down James Maddison in the area.

We were struggling to find our rhythm as the visitors started to dominant and push us back, Vardy and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho spurning good efforts and they were peppering our box with crosses high and low. We have had a lot of opportunities, not just the penalty.

The Lilywhites now find themselves five points behind second-placed Liverpool FC as they look to try and keep themselves in the title race.
