"For sure we'll improve together the team performance and now we need to deal with a few more games and then hopefully the squad will be full again and ready to compete until the end. Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable", Pochettino said.

"Leicester had 20 shots and against a bigger side it would be hard to win that way".

The France worldwide kept out Jamie Vardy's penalty, which was the striker's first touch of the game, and made a number of other important stops as Spurs won 3-1 at Wembley.

"Do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?"

Jamie Vardy stepped off the bench to take Leicester's penalty against Tottenham - but his first touch did not go as planned.

But Shearer believes Spurs can't be so complacent against bigger teams, and has hinted that Borussia Dortmund could hurt them in their Champions League clash on Wednesday if they continue the way they are.

"Dortmund play fantastic football with fantastic players and I'm not surprised they're top of the league in Germany", said Lloris to reporters. 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.

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.

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

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

A 3-1 home win over Leicester City on Sunday ensured that Tottenham head into their clash with Dortmund full of confidence and Lloris will be hoping to build on his own match-winning performance.

In a freaky 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.

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. "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".
