Leicester player’s father claimed Spurs were ‘terrible’

Tottenham edged past Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley on Sunday to keep themselves within five points off Liverpool and Manchester City.

The scoreline certainly doesn’t tell the whole story of the game with the Foxes having plenty of opportunities to score.

The away side came to Wembley prepared to take the game to Tottenham, unlike Watford and Newcastle in previous matches.

Thankfully they found captain Hugo Lloris in superb form between the sticks with the Frenchman producing a string of impressive saves to quell the threat.

The timing of the three goals from Mauricio Pochettino’s side proved to be crucial in helping to keep Leicester at bay

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has called out Tottenham for what he deemed to be a “terrible” performance.

Schmeichel is, of course, the father of Leicester keeper, Kasper and claimed that Spurs didn’t create a single decent opening in the whole game.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Schmeichel said, “If you want to win a Championship, you win your games even when you play terribly. I thought Tottenham were terrible today. They didn’t create any chances.

“They scored from a corner for the first, the second – a Tottenham player handballs it and the third is a mistake. I’m trying to think of a move where Tottenham played and they had a chance. They did not have a single move.

“Whereas, Harvey Barnes had three one-on-ones with the goalkeeper. Leicester had the all opportunities, but that’s why they are where they are.”

While there is certainly an element of truth in Schmeichel’s assessment, Spurs fans will argue that they were denied a clear penalty in the first half when Son Heung-Min was tripped by Harry Maguire, for which the Michael Oliver inexplicably decided to book the South Korean for diving.

  1. What did smeichel think of the beautiful 1-0 win for United against Tottenham? ;)
    I’ve seen mist PL games thus season and over the last 30 years to know that Sometimes you need a little luck.

  2. Schmeichel said, “If you want to win a Championship, you win your games even when you play terribly. I thought Tottenham were terrible today. They didn’t create any chances.”
    Oh yeah? Well we scored 3 goals from NO CHANCES!!! And we played terribly according to Shmeichel and still won, so he is therefore saying we should win the Premier League! A great endorsement!!

  3. I think you should stick to giving your son goalkeeping advice, after all, he let 3 goals in against a side who played terribly and created no chances. He obviously needs all the help he can get!
