Spurs sink Leicester to stay in title hunt

I don't think many defenders have been included in the Team of the Week after they had faced up against the most timid strike force in the Premier League, but Huddersfield actually discovered a semblance of attacking threat against Arsenal, with the Terriers having 15 shots compared to the Gunners nine.

"It was a penalty, the same referee", he added as he recalled an incident when the club were denied a penalty against Liverpool earlier this season. "I think you can feel in the eyes of the players the energy".

"We see the players, we all know these guys, so there's nothing to prepare for that in that regard".

Not for the first time, Pochettino complained about how Spurs had to face Leicester last Sunday, rather than Saturday - which was when Dortmund played their Bundesliga game against Hoffenheim. It's so hard. I'm a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so odd, the situation today. "All the respect to the opponent - but I am a person who will always believe we can beat any team".

Reus injured his thigh last Tuesday while drilling home a direct free-kick against Werder Bremen, but Dortmund lost on penalties as the German Cup tie finished 3-3 after extra time.

"If we played with a poor performance, without the possibility to develop our players, perhaps other teams wouldn't be interested in our players", Puel said.

The win keeps Tottenham in the Premier League title race, five points off the top, after their 20th win of the season.

Goalkeeper: I don't think there is much debate over who'll start in goal as Hugo Lloris is nearly certain to keep his place between the sticks with Paulo Gazzaniga having to make-do with a place on the bench.

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

"That's what I said to Michael".

Leicester's positive start to the second half brought a golden opportunity to equalise with their 60th minute penalty.

His first kick of the match was brilliantly saved by Hugo Lloris, but Puel had no issue with Vardy taking it.

"It was the same feeling against (Manchester) United, we wasted a lot of chances". I said if he felt good he could take it.
