Paul Merson reveals his prediction for Tottenham v Leicester

Hugo Lloris has warned that Tottenham must improve if they are to have any chance against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday after a patchy display against Leicester.

Tottenham Hotspur managed to fight past Leicester City in the Premier League to pick up a 3-1 win which means they are still in the hunt for being the champions.

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

- Since the start of the 2014-2015 campaign, Vardy has lost 15 Premier League games in which he has scored, more than any other player in the competition.

There was an early talking point as Son was booked for diving after he went down inside the box following a challenge by Harry Maguire.

Leicester's Harvey Barnes was allowed too much space in the penalty area as he raced onto Youri Tielemans' pass, but a poor finish wasted a gilt-edged chance. I am a person who accepts the mistakes, but today it was so clear. I feel like we have improved since last season, so it won't be the same match as past year.




"During this season we are fighting a lot of circumstances and this is one more".

Pochettino's men channelled their frustration into a sustained assault on the Leicester goal.

Kieran Trippier's corner was played short to Eriksen, who floated in an inviting cross for Davison Sanchez to power home a diving head for his first Tottenham goal in the 33rd minute.

Vardy was introduced as a substitute after the spot-kick had been awarded and immediately took it with his very first touch of the match. Known for accurate spot-kicks, Jamie Vardy took responsibility but failed to beat Lloris from 12-yards out.

The Foxes' misery was then compounded when Eriksen made it 2-0 to Spurs just three minutes later.

Vardy gave Leicester hope in the 76th minute, pouncing from close-range to convert Pereira's cross in typically predatory fashion. Christian Eriksen keeps his place in attack with Heung-min Son also supporting the recalled Fernando Llorente - who leads the line up front in the absence of Harry Kane.
