Last season Spurs went out at the same stage to Juventus after losing at home following a draw in Turin, but Pochettino said that game will have no bearing on tomorrow at Wembley, where defender Jan Vertonghen expects a packed stadium will be right behind the home side. "Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable", Pochettino said.

Although the scoreline suggests an easy win for Mauricio Pochettino's men, who are in third place in the Premier League, five points behind Manchester City and Liverpool, Leicester looked unsafe and had 20 shots at goal.

Son was booked in the first half after going down in the area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Spurs player to be yellow-carded for simulation this season.

"I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so unusual the situation today". When you compare the situation with the penalty for Leicester, unbelievable.

Eriksen then doubled Tottenham's lead inside three minutes.

Their attention now turns to the Champions League, where they host Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, though Pochettino is unhappy with the scheduling of this game against the Foxes.

'Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character, ' Lloris said.

"In some days it's hard to deal with Wembley, but hopefully for this big game we'll receive this help from the crowd".

"They [Dortmund] play fantastic football", he added. Sometimes you deserve to win, like the game against Man United, and you lost.

His first kick of the match was brilliantly saved by Hugo Lloris, but Puel had no issue with Vardy taking it.

'I think we need to improve the team performance.

Another game, another goal and another assist from the ever-dangerous Denmark global as Spurs kept pace with the league leaders, despite Leicester having the better of the chances at Wembley. "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".

Despite that support, Foyth had an underwhelming debut against Wolves last November when he gave away two penalties as Spurs just about clinched a 3-2 win at Molineux, but the youngster says the manager helped him overcome that shaky start.
