  • Moussa Sissoko has been a key player for Spurs this season

Tottenham ran out 3-1 winners against Leicester, thanks to goals from Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min, maintaining the five-point gap to Liverpool and City at the top of the table in the process.

Without that, we could not win this game.

"I'm more relaxed because we won the game - we got three important points - but so disappointed with the situation".

The striker had an opportunity to prove himself after being dropped by Claude Puel.

Finally piecing together an incisive raid, Tottenham were furious when Son's penalty appeal ended in a booking for diving after Maguire stuck out a leg to halt the South Korean.

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.

"I think we well decide in the short term, but I do not expect a miraculous recovery before Wednesday", Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc told Ruhr Nachrichten. I am a person who accepts the mistakes, but today it was so clear.

"If we are being targeted (by referees), I don't understand why. Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".

Pochettino's men channelled their frustration into a sustained assault on the Leicester goal.

And this was their worst loss in any competition since 1991 after failing to recover from Sterling's fourth-minute opener.

A rapid exchange of passes opened up a chance for Maddison, prompting Jan Vertonghen to rashly bundle over the midfielder. He duly took the ball from James Maddison and claimed the spot kick as his.

It proved a key moment as Eriksen doubled Tottenham's lead just three minutes later as he picked up Llorente's lay-off on the edge of the box and curled an inch-perfect effort into the corner past Schmeichel.

Vardy gave Leicester hope in the 76th minute, pouncing from close-range to convert Pereira's cross in typically predatory fashion.

That was after a well-worked move allowed Ricardo Pereira to drill in a cross from the right.
