It was a game in our hands, and we had a lot of chances and created a lot of good moves.

They report that the Argentine was convinced to join Spurs by his countryman Mauricio Pochettino back in 2017, shunning the riches on offer with the French champions.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino insists that Hugo Lloris' quality can not be doubted, after he made a key save in Spurs' 3-1 win over Leicester City.

The France global 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.

While the scoreline suggests that the Lilywhites might have had an easy game but we assure you, it wasn't.

Son was booked in the first half after going down in the area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Spurs player to be yellow-carded for simulation this season. The problem is, I told Michael Oliver, the situation of Liverpool in the last minute that should be a penalty, but it was a clear penalty.

Speaking to ESPN, Foyth 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".

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.

The Frenchman added: 'Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character.

We'll have team news for you very shortly.

"It's fantastic. Sometimes winning games when you're not at your best".

Maddison took the ball and was going to take the spot-kick, only for Vardy to enter the fray and take the penalty with his first touch of the game. "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".

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.

Insisting he was happy for Vardy to take the penalty, Puel said: "I gave him the opportunity".
