Mauricio Pochettino saluted Tottenham's fighting spirit as they kept alive their bid to gate-crash the Premier League title race with a 3-1 win over Leicester on Sunday.

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.

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.

Spurs though threw the first punch after Davidson Sanchez nodded home Christian Eriksen's inch-perfect cross on 33 minutes.

Tottenham will now turn their attention to the Champions League, with the first leg of their last-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund taking place on Wednesday.

Son claimed he was tripped by Harry Maguire in the first half, but Oliver showed the South Korean a yellow card for simulation, before later awarding a penalty to Leicester when he adjudged that Jan Vertonghen had fouled James Maddison.

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.

Life sentence for Quebec mosque shooter Alexandre Bissonnette
A Canadian man who shot dead six worshipers at a mosque in Quebec City in 2017, was sentenced to life imprisonment. In the end, the judge said Bissonnette will not be eligible for parole until he served 40 years of his sentence.

"When you compare the situation with the penalty against us, unbelievable. It was an even game - we conceded more than we usually concede - but I think the victory is fair", he told reporters at his post-match press conference.

Spurs head into the game looking to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League as they look to keep up the pressure on Liverpool FC and Manchester City at the top of the table.

The Leicester striker was dropped to the bench by Claude Puel in the loss to Spurs, but he had a lively contribution when he was brought on after 60 minutes at Wembley.

The South Korea global went tumbling in the area after an attempted tackle by Harry Maguire, but referee Oliver showed him a yellow card after deeming he had dived.

Tottenham doubled their lead three minutes later as Eriksen collected the ball on the edge of the penalty area and unleashed a fierce shot past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Still angry about the decision after the match, Pochettino fumed: "It's unbelievable".
