"Against a bigger side we couldn't have won that type of game".

The Etihad Stadium scoreboard tells the story after Manchester City whipped Chelsea in their Sunday night game of the week.

Despite the scoreline, Leicester were well in the game and had 20 shots at goal and the prospect of conceding so many chances against the Bundesliga leaders in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie worries him.

When your team wins 3-1 and your 'keeper gets in the Team of the Week, you know you have got away with one, and Spurs certainly had Hugo Lloris to thank against Leicester, making nine saves including a Jamie Vardy penalty.

Son was booked in the first half after going down in the area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Spurs player to be yellow-carded for simulation this season.

"It was a penalty, the same referee", he added as he recalled an incident when the club were denied a penalty against Liverpool earlier this season.

Maddison took the ball and was going to take the spot-kick, only for Vardy to enter the fray and take the penalty with his first touch of the game.

According to Lloris, Tottenham should deliver a big performance in champions league this week against Dortmund at Wembley to consider qualifying.

The Kiwi bagged a brace in a key game against Brighton on Saturday, taking his tally to five goals in seven games in what a vital win for the Clarets against the Seagulls, who both now sit on 27 points, three points above the drop zone, with Burnley now unbeaten in their last seven.

Speaking to ESPN, Foyth said: "More than anything I decided on Tottenham because there was an Argentinian manager and support team - or they can [at least] speak Spanish - and because it was a club that supported young players a lot". Sometimes you deserve to win, like the game against Man United, and you lost. I think we need to improve the team performance. "Come on, we are the most innocent people on the pitch". Leicester deserved better but we won.

In a weird 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.
