Lloris wants 'Wembley push' as Spurs seek Dortmund scalp in Champions League

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

Leicester could have drawn level on the hour mark, but Jamie Vardy, on off the bench, saw his spot-kick saved by Lloris.

"I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so odd the situation today".

He said: "More than anything I decided on Tottenham because there was an Argentinian manager and support team - or they can [at least] speak Spanish - and because it was a club that supported young players a lot".

"I have to congratulate the players".

While the scoreline suggests that the Lilywhites might have had an easy game but we assure you, it wasn't.

In a freakish 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. However, we have to give a very notable mention to Tom Heaton, who put in a similarly impressive performance for Burnley.

Lloris also warned Spurs must produce a better performance against Dortmund after Leicester had twenty shots on goal.

Jurgen Klopp's men maintain the advantage of a game in hand, but handed a reprieve by Liverpool's draws against Leicester and West Ham in recent weeks, City look determined to become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League. It was the same feeling against United with a lot of chances. "Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable", Pochettino said.

Although Pochettino's comments did not relate to a specific incident, it's likely that he was referring to Oliver's decision to award Liverpool two debatable penalties against Arsenal earlier this season, as well as his decision not to award Spurs a penalty in the last minute at Anfield - in an incident that again involved Son. It was so clear the position today with Sonny.

" Do you think that we're a team trying to cheat a referee?"

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has called on the club's supporters to rally behind the team ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League knockout tie against Borussia Dortmund.

The Frenchman added: 'Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character. "Come on. We are the most innocent people on the pitch".
