Tottenham's Pochettino critical of referee Oliver for 'unbelievable' Son booking

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min deserved a penalty in the 3-1 home win over Leicester City on Sunday and it was "unbelievable" that he was booked for diving instead by referee Michael Oliver, manager Mauricio Pochettino has said.

While Tottenham are still outsiders to win their first English title since 1961, their ability to stay in contention, despite injuries to key players Harry Kane and Dele Alli suggests they shouldn't be completely written off.

Lloris calls for total concentration of the players and the presence of fans at Wembley to ensure victory.

Speaking of which, Leicester have got as good a chance as they'll ever have of beating Spurs because of the number of casualties that the homeless North Londoners are now dealing with.

"When you compare the situation with the penalty against us, unbelievable".

"I can't understand why we are playing with such a massive disadvantage".

"We were talking in the meeting before and it's completely different (in big games)", Pochettino said.

"He's showing his value and of course in the decisive moments like today it was so important to help the team achieve the three points".

He added: "Did you see the last few games?"


Tottenham beat Dortmund twice in the Champions League group stage last season but they will face more formidable opponents this time.

There were many good performances in a Spurs shirt in the encounter, but the best one was from Eriksen.

"That is why everyone has the feeling we can do it this year".

One injury doubt for Dortmund is attacker Marco Reus, who picked up a thigh injury in the defeat to Breman in the Cup. "Tomorrow we're going to assess whether he can be on the bench".

The 18-year-old, who joined from Manchester City in 2017, has produced eight goals and 10 assists for the Bundesliga leaders this season.

It promises to be a gripping occasion and the Wembley attendance will not be capped, meaning Spurs can hope for a huge crowd.

He said: "I really believe that we can win every single game".

"It doesn't mean we can't compete, but for me it doesn't make sense".
