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

Moussa Sissoko has been a key player for Spurs this season

In a freakish turn of events, Vardy came off the bench for Gray and walked straight up to the spot to take the penalty, only for Lloris to dive to his right and push it away to safety.

Their attention now turns to the Champions League, where they host Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, though Pochettino is unhappy with the scheduling of this game against the Foxes.

What happens against Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow will go a long way in determining what the actual outcome will be vis-à-vis Leicester's season and Puel's future. It was the same referee but I don't know how he has measured the situation.

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".

'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? "We conceded more chances than usual, but I think the victory is fair", Pochettino said.

"I think we're talking about one of the best keepers in the world, with a lot of experience and having played a lot of games here at Tottenham". I am a person who accepts the mistakes, but today it was so clear. "We are nice people".

Tottenham were rewarded with a well-worked 33rd minute opener.


But they were behind on 33 minutes when Sanchez headed Eriksen's cross past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel from just inside the six yard box.

The South Korean went on to get on the scoresheet at Wembley, putting the finishing touches on a win that had been set up by Davinson Sanchez and Christian Eriksen goals.

It was not the first time a player has taken a spot-kick in the Premier League immediately after coming on with Wigan midfielder Ben Watson doing so on New Year's Eve in November 2011, sealing a 2-2 draw.

But Lloris came to Tottenham's rescue, plunging to his right to keep out Vardy's spot-kick.

Llorente pounced on Ricardo Pereira's poor clearance and teed up Eriksen for a superb strike from the edge of the area for his first goal since January 1.

Harvey Barnes produced another tame finish when sent through on goal by Vardy, before Pereira made amends for his earlier error by sending in a low cross that Vardy flicked past Lloris.

But Son had the last word in the 90th minute as the winger raced clear to slot past Schmeichel for his 15th goal of the season.
