Man of the Match: Heung-min Son
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte: “We got three points at an important moment of the season, especially because we are going to face Liverpool and then Arsenal in the next games. Today was vital to get three points. When you have to pay for only one result there is a lot of pressure, but I said to my play to live in this moment and enjoy it because we deserve it after the really great work we’ve done in these six months.”
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: “I’m a little frustrated but pleased at the same time. We started the game very well, we controlled the first 20 minutes and looked like a threat, we hit the post and that stopped us going in front. I’m frustrated with the first two goals; we’ve lacked aggression in that area and have suffered from that all season. The players could have felt sorry for themselves and unraveled at 2-0, Spurs are a good team and can score lots of goals, but they didn’t do that. The spirit was there, we kept fighting and working, and got our reward with a really good goal from Kelechi. But soft goals at certain moments have cost us this season, that’s the biggest disappointment.”
