Eriksen helps title-chasing Tottenham beat Leicester 3-1

Moussa Sissoko poses for

Mauricio Pochettino faces a defining moment in his Tottenham reign as the in-demand Argentine tries to keep his bid for a first major prize alive against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

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.

Tottenham welcome Borussia Dortmund to Wembley without star players Harry Kane and Dele Alli after a string of high-profile injuries. I feel like we have improved since last season, so it won't be the same match as a year ago. "[It was] a fantastic result, fantastic spirit until the end".

Son appeared to be tripped by Leicester defender Harry Maguire in the first half but Oliver brandished a yellow card to the South Korea global with replays showing Maguire's boot had made contact with his shin.

"If we are being targeted (by referees), I don't understand why".

Pochettino says Tottenham and the other Premier League teams in Europe are already at a disadvantage because of the winter breaks given to German, Italian and Spanish teams. The effort is fantastic.

"Sometimes you can win games not playing your best".

Barr said he takes seriously the department regulations that say Mueller's report should be confidential. Republicans said they were confident Barr would make as much of the report public as possible.

Pochettino was particularly pleased with Lloris, who made nine saves throughout the match.

Pochettino has taken to defending his failure to win silverware in nearly five years at Tottenham by insisting he values qualification for Europe's elite club competition more highly than success in the domestic cups. "They all need to make progress and we will be passionate with these players". For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense.

"I am a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so odd the situation today".

He missed the side's 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim on Saturday and it's unclear if he will return in time for the next league game at Nuremberg in a week.

"Maybe it was not a good thing, but we had a lot of chances, not just with this penalty". It's encouraging to play this way and put this quality on the pitch.

Insisting he was happy for Vardy to take the penalty, Puel said: "I gave him the opportunity. All the game we had a lot of chances".
