Tottenham overcome Leicester City’s challenge to stay in EPL title hunt

Pochettino has claimed that, however the season ends for his Spurs players, in his eyes they are heroes.

Since a very well managed and earned win against Everton at Goodison Park on New Year's Day, it has all gone downhill for the Foxes, bringing Claude Puel back into the red zone where he stood before he casually derailed Chelsea and Manchester City's respective Premier League campaigns.

Raheem Sterling started and ended the scoring and Ilkay Gundogan also netted in the first quarter of the game as City ended what could have been a testing week with a trip to Everton in between the visits of Arsenal and Chelsea with maximum points.

A 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth in their last away game was Chelsea's heaviest league defeat since 1996.

Tottenham kept pressing and were rewarded with a well-worked 33rd minute opener.

Eden Hazard went to sleep from Kevin de Bruyne's quickly taken free-kick and Bernardo Silva had acres of space to cross for the England global to fire home. We won but against a bigger side we couldn't have won that type of game.

Add to that her burgeoning playwriting career, where she has been winning awards and acclaim. Her loss will be a big blow to the show's creative plans. "We really want her to stay".

In the Premier League, Tottenham remain within five points of Liverpool and Manchester City after beating Leicester. Lloris made a string of excellent stops including a penalty save when Jamie Vardy took the kick with his first touch as a substitute.

Christian Eriksen netted moments later and although Vardy got one back, Son Heung-min's late strike ensured third-placed Tottenham the victory.

The Lilywhites now find themselves five points behind second-placed Liverpool FC as they look to try and keep themselves in the title race.

"Like this afternoon it maybe wasn't our best performance, and it's impossible during 10 minutes to be at the same level, but we're still in it".

Son has now become the fourth Spurs player to be booked for diving this season and, when Pochettino was asked whether his side are being unfairly targeted, he replied: "I don't understand why, if that's what you say".

Asked whether he was pleased to see Vardy taking the penalty, Pochettino said: "Now, yes, but more than the mistake of whoever shot, it was a massive save from my keeper".
