Claude Puel has guided Leicester to 11th in the Premier League so far this season
Mauricio Pochettino saluted his "fantastic" players after they stayed on the coat-tails of Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race by grinding out a 3-1 victory over Leicester Cityat Wembley on Sunday, despite the Foxes pushing them to the limit.
His first kick of the match was brilliantly saved by Hugo Lloris, but Puel had no issue with Vardy taking it.
Another game, another goal and another assist from the ever-dangerous Denmark global as Spurs kept pace with the league leaders, despite Leicester having the better of the chances at Wembley.
Jadon Sancho, the 18-year-old English winger who has eight goals and 10 assists in all competitions, is expected to take Reus' place in the starting lineup.
"Sometimes you can win games not playing your best".
"It was the same referee, but now I don't know how he has measured the situation", Pochettino said, as quoted by the Mirror.
"For sure we'll improve together the team performance and now we need to deal with a few more games and then hopefully the squad will be full again and ready to compete until the end. All the game we had a lot of chances".
"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.
Leicester were awarded a penalty in the second half, which Jamie Vardy missed, when midfielder James Maddison appeared to be fouled by Spurs defender Jan Verthongen.
"It was so clear the position with Sonny, the action, but it wasn't clear the position of Maddison when he was on the floor", Pochettino said.
Spurs face German league leaders Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday, but despite injuries to Harry Kane and Deli Alli the Argentinian is confident his side can get a positive result.
I don't think many defenders have been included in the Team of the Week after they had faced up against the most timid strike force in the Premier League, but Huddersfield actually discovered a semblance of attacking threat against Arsenal, with the Terriers having 15 shots compared to the Gunners nine.
But Lloris stepped up when it mattered most with an excellent save, a pivotal moment as we went 2-0 up minutes later, giving ourselves a platform to go on and win the game. "Come on, we're one of the nicest teams on the pitch".
