Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City played out an entertaining score draw this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking following his side’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup, with his comments later posted on Spurs’ official Twitter account.
Tottenham went ahead just eight minutes into the match when Christian Eriksen scored but Marcin Wasilewski equalised before half-time and a fine second-half effort from substitute Shinji Okazaki looked like sending the Foxes through.
However, a debatable penalty was awarded with time running out and Harry Kane stepped up to score emphatically past Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
A replay was probably the last thing managers Mauricio Pochettino and Claudio Ranieri wanted but that was what they got, as the two teams flying high in the Premier League will have to do battle again for a place in the fourth round of the famous competition.
Speaking after the game, Tottenham boss Pochettino said, “We’re disappointed with the result because we felt we deserved more in the end but we need to be happy to equalise late in the game.
“We never gave up, continued (to) fight and go forward and believed we could score, so I’m happy for that.”
Next up for Tottenham is a Premier League match against the same opponents before they welcome Sunderland to White Hart Lane next weekend.
