Spurs sink Leicester to stay in title hunt

Share

Maddison was set to take the penalty, but with Vardy already readying himself to come on, Claude Puel opted to send the striker on for Demarai Gray to take the spot-kick.

While Tottenham are still outsiders to win their first English title since 1961, their ability to stay in contention, despite injuries to key players Harry Kane and Dele Alli suggests they shouldn't be completely written off.

"During this season we are fighting a lot of circumstances and that [run] is one more". It was a game in our hands, and we had a lot of chances and created a lot of good moves.

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. Today will be the last time I say this message.

"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.

"If we are being targeted (by referees), I don't understand why".

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

Kasper Schmeichel blocked a Danny Rose strike after a good run from the left-back, but Leicester looked the more threatening of the sides in the opening half-hour, with James Maddison twice dragging shots wide from good positions.

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

Tottenham went ahead through Sanchez who scored his first goal for the London club by meeting Eriksen's whipped cross with a diving header in the 33rd minute.

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

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes. Ricardo Pereira - who conceded possession in the build-up to Marcus Rashford's goal at the King Power Stadium last week - gave away the ball near his own box, allowing Fernando Llorente to set up Eriksen to fire beyond Schmeichel from 20 yards out.
