Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus out of Tottenham Champions League tie

Paul Merson reveals his prediction for Tottenham v Leicester

Ouch - though he did bounce back to score and make it 2-1!

Leicester squandered a string of chances, though - including a missed penalty from Jamie Vardy - and Pochettino acknowledged that it was a win they ground out without being on top form.

"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". Frustratingly for Leicester fans, those two impressive results aside, they have lost five of their last six games in all competitions, including defeats to Newport, Cardiff and Southampton.

It's unclear if Reus will return in time for the next league game at Nuremberg in a week's time, or the second leg against Tottenham in Dortmund, which will be played on March 5.

We're two from two and we have a couple of weeks of training before England and this sets us up nicely for that match. Probably part of that is that we didn't have the continuity that we would have if we hadn't made so many changes.

Instead, moments after the missed penalty, Spurs doubled their lead through Christian Eriksen's wonderful strike and subsequently weathered Leicester's fightback, although the visitors did claw one back through Vardy.

Finally piecing together an incisive raid, Tottenham were furious when Son's penalty appeal ended in a booking for diving after Maguire stuck out a leg to halt the South Korean. It's so hard. I'm a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so odd, the situation today. I told Michael Oliver.

"We came from a tough Christmas period when the teams in Germany and Spain were enjoying some holidays", he said. "The message is not Pochettino is crying", he said.

Vardy was introduced as a substitute after the spot-kick had been awarded and immediately took it with his very first touch of the match. Ricardo Pereira - who conceded possession in the build-up to Marcus Rashford's goal at the King Power Stadium last week - gave away the ball near his own box, allowing Fernando Llorente to set up Eriksen to fire beyond Schmeichel from 20 yards out.
