Leicester striker Jamie Vardy misses penalty immediately after coming on as substitute

Maddison took hold of the ball and presented it to the former England striker after he replaced Gray, but with his first touch, Hugo Lloris dived to save his penalty.

Ouch - though he did bounce back to score and make it 2-1!

"Maybe it was not a good thing, but we had a lot of chances, not just with this penalty".

"The problem is, I told Michael Oliver [about] the situation against Liverpool in the last minute that should have been a penalty". It was the same referee but I don't know how he has measured the situation. It is so hard. I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so odd the situation. Everyone wants to talk about different clubs or players but do you think we're a team that's trying to cheat the referee?

- Tottenham have won 20 league games this season - only in their top-flight title winning campaign of 1960-1961 have they ever won more after their first 26 matches of a season (22).

Tottenham Hotspur defeated Leicester City 3-1 to boost their Premier League title bid on Sunday afternoon.

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. For me, I'm going to stop describing the real situation, but I think there is no sense.

Leicester have lost four of their last five league games, increasing the pressure on under-fire boss Claude Puel.

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.

"I know bookmakers have them as third favourites but, for the points they have racked up, you simply can not take them out of the discussion".

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.

"The chances they created today, from those positions, Leicester should have got something out of the game". Maddison and other young players - it's not finished for them yet - they didn't have consistency or a clinical edge all the time.

"Normally Jamie takes the penalty and I gave him the opportunity".

"He's one of the best keepers in the world", he said.
