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

Paul Merson

It was the second time Oliver has denied Son a penalty at Wembley this season after he chose not to award a spot-kick in the final moments of Liverpool's 2-1 win in September.

Goals from Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min sealed a fourth straight win for the title outsiders, lifting them to within five points of leaders Liverpool.

"I think it is unbelievable".

"Today do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?" It was the same referee but I don't know how he has measured the situation. I am a person that always accepts the mistake, but I think it was so odd the situation.

'It is unbelievable. I am more relaxed because we won the game but so disappointed with the situation because everyone wants to talk about different clubs or players but do you think we are a team that is trying to cheat the referee? "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch". The striker had an opportunity to prove himself after being dropped by Claude Puel.

Pochettino added Spurs striker Harry Kane, who injured his ankle last month, was making progress but would not return in time for Sunday's game or the Champions League last-16 first leg against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Son claimed he was tripped by Harry Maguire in the first half, but Oliver showed the South Korean a yellow card for simulation, before later awarding a penalty to Leicester when he adjudged that Jan Vertonghen had fouled James Maddison.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino knows that he will need to make improvements to his squad, not just to make the club better, but also to keep the stars he now has at his disposal happy and content enough to remain at White Hart Lane. His effort was poor, easily saved by Hugo Lloris. It was a game in our hands, and we had a lot of chances and created a lot of good moves.

The Danish playmaker is out of contract at White Hart Lane at the end of next season, and has regularly been linked with a switch to Real Madrid, so were Tottenham to find the man to take his place, they could decide to cash in on their star.

Asked whether he was pleased to see Vardy taking the penalty, Pochettino said: "Now, yes, but more than the mistake of whoever shot, it was a massive save from my keeper. I said to him if he felt OK he can take the penalty, but it's not just the penalty that cost us".
