Son secures win as Tottenham see off Leicester at Wembley

The attendance in the 3-1 victory over Leicester was back up beyond 44,000 but over 82,000 attended when Tottenham hosted Barcelona in the Champions League earlier in the season.

Finally piecing together an incisive raid, Tottenham were furious when Son's penalty appeal ended in a booking for diving after Maguire stuck out a leg to halt the South Korean. It is so hard. 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.

"I think we are talking about one of the best 'keepers in the world, with a lot of experience and having played a lot of games here at Tottenham", Pochettino told his post-match press conference. For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense.

The defeat means Puel's men have now picked up just a single point from their past five games, with the pressure on the Frenchman increasing as they stay in 12th place.

"We came from a tough Christmas period when the teams in Germany and Spain were enjoying some holidays", he said.

The teaser unveiled the first footage of Will's Smith's Genie - and fans don't really know how to feel about it. And I say this as someone who's been an ardent defender of Ritchie's last couple of fun-filled blockbusters.

He said: "I feel so embarrassed because I can accept to play today if Dortmund play today and then we play Wednesday, but I cannot understand why we're playing with a massive disadvantage".

Goals from Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min secured the three points for the home side at Wembley, despite a consolation from Jamie Vardy, who missed a penalty when the score was 1-0 to Spurs.

And it was Leicester with the first sight of goal after the break too, Ricardo Pereira's cross falling perfectly to Demarai Gray but his header from 10 yards was straight at Lloris, while our skipper was also tested by shots from Gray and Chilwell in the next few minutes, but saved both comfortably.

"We'll see if you can trust more in my gut or the [club's] capacity to finish the stadium before the end of the season". Maddison and other young players - it's not finished for them yet - they didn't have consistency or a clinical edge all the time. In some days it's hard to deal with Wembley but hopefully in this big game we'll receive this help from the crowd'.
