Pochettino Fumes As Fixtures Give Spurs ‘Massive’ Euro Task

The Foxes' misery was then compounded when Eriksen made it 2-0 to Spurs just three minutes later.

Knockout competition defeats to Chelsea and Crystal Palace without Dele Alli and Harry Kane as well as Heung-min Son looked like they could derail Spurs' entire season, but they have recovered with back-to-back wins in the league - both thanks to late goals - against Watford and Newcastle.

Leicester missed the chance to equalise on the hour mark when substitute Jamie Vardy's penalty - his first touch after coming on - was pushed away by Hugo Lloris after Jan Vertonghen was adjudged to have fouled James Maddison in the box.

"I'm more relaxed because we won the game, three important points we got, but so disappointed with the situation because everyone wants to talk about different clubs or players. We conceded more chances than usual, but I think the victory is fair", Pochettino said. The striker had an opportunity to prove himself after being dropped by Claude Puel.

Pochettino says Tottenham and the other Premier League teams in Europe are already at a disadvantage because of the winter breaks given to German, Italian and Spanish teams.

The South Korean went down in the penalty area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Tottenham player to be yellow carded for simulation this season.

Still angry about the decision after the match, Pochettino fumed: "It's unbelievable". Today will be the last time I say this message.

Oliver Skipp charged down Ricardo Pereira's clearance, Fernando Llorente fed Eriksen, who added to his earlier assist by sending a low shot into the bottom corner in the 63rd.

But Lloris came to Tottenham's rescue, plunging to his right to keep out Vardy's spot-kick.
