"Mauricio Pochettino's side have done something similar in each of their past four league games, but it is actually very impressive that they keep getting results when none of those performances have been particularly great".

The France worldwide kept out Jamie Vardy's penalty, which was the striker's first touch of the game, and made a number of other important stops as Spurs won 3-1 at Wembley.

Leicester had 20 shots to Spurs' 12 and were guilty of missing several chances through James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, while Vardy's spot-kick was saved by Hugo Lloris just three minutes before Eriksen made it 2-0.

"I feel very proud", he told Sky Sports. Leicester played so well.

He said: "More than anything I decided on Tottenham because there was an Argentinian manager and support team - or they can [at least] speak Spanish - and because it was a club that supported young players a lot". The effort is unbelievable. With all the circumstances, again, we are there, we are fighting, showing great character. "Sometimes, like this afternoon, it wasn't out best performance, but I think the team is doing fantastic".

"He's one of the best keepers in the world", he said. He was key, but when you need this type of performance from your top player, they were there. For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense. But the most important thing was to get another three points in a hard period.

"I think it's hard", he said.

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. Whether it was a good thing, not a good thing, we don't know.

"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". It's encouraging to play this way and put this quality on the pitch. "All the game we had a lot of chances".
