Jurgen Klopp's men maintain the advantage of a game in hand, but handed a reprieve by Liverpool's draws against Leicester and West Ham in recent weeks, City look determined to become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League.

They report that the Argentine was convinced to join Spurs by his countryman Mauricio Pochettino back in 2017, shunning the riches on offer with the French champions.

In Sunday's early match, Tottenham kept alive their bid to gate-crash the Premier League title race with a 3-1 win over Leicester City, their fifth win in their last six league games.

The game also saw another penalty debate, after Son Heung Min appeared to be tripped by Leicester defender Harry Maguire in the first half but referee Michael Oliver brandished a yellow card to the South Korea worldwide.

"Today do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked?" The problem is, I told Michael Oliver, the situation of Liverpool in the last minute that should be a penalty, but it was a clear penalty.

But Shearer believes Spurs can't be so complacent against bigger teams, and has hinted that Borussia Dortmund could hurt them in their Champions League clash on Wednesday if they continue the way they are.

The Frenchman added: 'Leicester played in a fantastic way and I think we won the game thanks to our spirit and character.

"They play fantastic football", Lloris said. "Sometimes, like this afternoon, it wasn't out best performance, but I think the team is doing fantastic".

"We need the stadium to push, to help us - in some days it's hard to deal with Wembley but hopefully, in this big game we'll receive this help from the crowd".

His first kick of the match was brilliantly saved by Hugo Lloris, but Puel had no issue with Vardy taking it.

Lloris also warned Spurs must produce a better performance against Dortmund after Leicester had twenty shots on goal.

Insisting he was happy for Vardy to take the penalty, Puel said: "I gave him the opportunity".

"Ultimately, I still don't think Spurs will come out on top, but with three months of the season to go, they definitely still have a chance and you can not discount them", he said. "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch".
