Eriksen, Son Score as Tottenham Beats Leicester City

Paul Merson

Tottenham Hotspur warmed up for their Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund in midweek by beating Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and after the match the praise poured in for their star of the show.

Maddison picked the ball up, ready to take the spot kick, but Puel immediately sent Vardy on in place of Demarai Gray to take the penalty, and Leicester's top scorer saw his powerful effort saved by Hugo Lloris.

It was third-placed Tottenham's fourth successive league win without injured top-scorer Harry Kane. I told Michael Oliver. "[It was] a fantastic result, fantastic spirit until the end".

Spurs fans enjoyed seeing their superstar playmaker come back to form, with many commenting on his performance and the quality of his display against Leicester on social media after the final whistle.

I think if you want to fight for big things, you need a little bit of luck and it was for our side, but we deserved it.

- Gray (22y 226d) made his 100th Premier League appearance in this match - only Emile Heskey (21y 114d) played his 100th game for the Foxes in the competition at a younger age. The effort is awesome.

Pochettino has also insisted that his side are still in the hunt, telling Sky Sports after the win: "Again we are there, we are fighting and showing great character".

"Sometimes you can win games not playing your best. I said to him if he felt OK he can take the penalty, but it's not just the penalty that cost us".

"It is so hard to understand why, when we had one week clear to play this game and to schedule it on a different day, and only I am explaining my feelings and how hard it is to prepare a game when you only have today and then you're going to need to play". "I think he's going to feel wonderful now".

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.

- Sanchez is the 147th different player to score in the Premier League for Tottenham, while only West Ham United have as many (also 147). "[There are] a lot of regrets". We didn't find the good finish.

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.

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