"We have a lot of possibilities not just the penalty, to get back in the game and score first".

"We would, of course, have liked to have him in London, because his presence is a bit intimidating for the opponent", Dortmund official Sebastian Kehl told reporters.

Mauricio Pochettino saluted his "fantastic" players after they stayed on the coat-tails of Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race by grinding out a 3-1 victory over Leicester City at Wembley on Sunday, despite the Foxes pushing them to the limit.

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

It was the second time Oliver has denied Son a penalty at Wembley this season after he chose not to award a spot-kick in the final moments of Liverpool's 2-1 win in September.

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes.

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

The England captain added 11 to his overnight total before falling to Shannon Gabriel , while Ben Stokes finished unbeaten on 48. Paul blocked one ball and gave the strike to Chase, who achieved the hundred by cutting Joe Denly for his 12th boundary.

The Frenchman added: 'Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character.

But Shearer believes Spurs can't be so complacent against bigger teams, and has hinted that Borussia Dortmund could hurt them in their Champions League clash on Wednesday if they continue the way they are.

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".

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.

While the scoreline suggests that the Lilywhites might have had an easy game but we assure you, it wasn't. We need to improve the team performance compared to yesterday and we need the stadium to help us.

We were struggling to find our rhythm as the visitors started to dominant and push us back, Vardy and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho spurning good efforts and they were peppering our box with crosses high and low. "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".

Insisting he was happy for Vardy to take the penalty, Puel said: "I gave him the opportunity".
