Pochettino on Leicester win


Victory against Leicester left Spurs a point adrift of the top five and Harry Kane now has 15 goals this season with Eriken on seven.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino said: “I am happy for them and I am happy for the team. It was a very good result.

“The reason they both keep scoring is they always try to get into scoring positions and they have the desire to score.

“It is not one of those things – they train hard for this.

“They both keep wanting to score.

“Christian has a free role. I think he is a player you need to give confidence.”

And the head coach eased fears over Hugo Lloris after the goalkeeper was left with a bloodied mouth following a collision with Jamie Vardy.

He added: “He was only cut inside his mouth. It was not like last time (when the goalkeeper suffered concussion against Everton last season).

“He will not need clearance to play against Manchester United (on Sunday). This was nothing like before.

“From my position it was difficult to see the incident but it is not serious and he will play. He is very brave.”
