Pochettino, who apologised for kicking the ball into the stands while celebrating Tottenham's third goal, then highlighted a past dispute with Oliver, who turned down a late penalty appeal for Son during Liverpool's 2-1 win at Tottenham in September.

Goals from Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min sealed a fourth straight win for the title outsiders, lifting them to within five points of leaders Liverpool.

"Today do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?" Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable. When you compare the situation with the penalty [given] against us, unbelievable. I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so unusual the situation. I am 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?

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.

Pochettino's side face Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium next time out in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.

"He's one of the best keepers in the world", he said.

Leicester, who missed good chances at a steady rate through the game, have now lost five of their last six games in all competitions as the pressure grows on Claude Puel.

The First Night of AAF Football
We certainly did as a staff, and I would say the Apollos had the same situation, and the officials did as well. In the Alliance of American Football roster building process, every NFL team was assigned an AAF affiliate.

There were sardonic cheers from the visiting end at Wembley as Jamie Vardy limbered up to come off the bench, shortly after Leicester City had been awarded a penalty with Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 up.

Llorente was caught napping early on when Harry Maguire evaded the Spanish striker's marking and met James Maddison's free-kick with a towering header that Hugo Lloris tipped over.

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.

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

"He's almost ready to play, but we need to be realistic too".

Asked whether he was pleased to see Vardy taking the penalty, Pochettino said: "Now, yes, but more than the mistake of whoever shot, it was a massive save from my keeper".
