Tottenham captain Lloris rallies supporters for BVB clash

"They have so many fantastic players and creative players".

"Again, their effort was fantastic".

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". But we defended them well and when, in the 91st minute, Chilwell's cross was whacked clear by Sissoko, it put Son in the clear with just Schmeichel to beat and the striker made no mistake to wrap up the points.

In a weird turn of events, Vardy came off the bench for Gray and walked straight up to the spot to take the penalty, only for Lloris to dive to his right and push it away to safety. Yesterday, Leicester deserved better but we won. "All the game we had a lot of chances".

"But I am happy with our moves and our quality, and we have to find the clinical edge because we need points to benefit our work".

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

After the game, Pochettino was fuming with Oliver's decision - with the Argentine boss suggesting that he believes title rivals Liverpool have been the beneficiaries of some of the referee's more questionable decisions this term. "Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable", Pochettino said.

After replacing Demarai Gray with his side trailing to Davinson Sanchez's headed opener, James Maddison was brought down inside the box by Jan Vertonghen with Vardy already warming up and ready to come on. It was so clear the position today with Sonny.

"I'm more relaxed because we won the game, three important points we got, but so disappointed with the situation because everyone wants to talk about different clubs or players".

"But do you think we are a team that is trying to cheat the referee? Come on, we're one of the nicest teams on the pitch".

"Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character", said Spurs captain Lloris ahead of the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Wednesday.
