Leicester boss Puel happy Spurs looking at Maddison

Pochettino told the eve-of-match press conference that Sancho had been on his radar for a while before he started making headlines.

Tottenham were under plenty of pressure heading into the match, having already seen leaders Liverpool win earlier in the weekend, and although they were not at their fluent best, they deserve plenty of credit for coming through on top.

Chelsea on the other hand slip to sixth with the scale of the defeat sure to raise further doubts over Sarri's future. "It will be massive to play the last five games in the Premier League at our new stadium".

And this was their worst loss in any competition since 1991 after failing to recover from Sterling's fourth-minute opener.

Such has been the remarkable rate of Kane's recovery, after he suffered ankle ligament damage in mid-January, that he is around eight or nine days from being fit and is even likely to feature against Burnley in the Premier League a week on Saturday.

Jan Vertonghen believes we'll have to deal with a Borussia Dortmund side "full of confidence" at Wembley on Wednesday night. Providing Son can get the service from the likes of Harry Winks & Christian Eriksen, expect him to continue his goal scoring feats midweek.

The North London club also remain without Ben Davies, which means they face a real issue at left-back.

While Tottenham are still outsiders to win their first English title since 1961, their ability to stay in contention, despite injuries to key players Harry Kane and Dele Alli suggests they shouldn't be completely written off.

Their attention now turns to the Champions League, where they host Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, though Pochettino is unhappy with the scheduling of this game against the Foxes.

"It's fantastic. Sometimes winning games when you're not at your best".

"Yes, we have a few dropped out, but we won't be going there just to wave", said Dortmund's director of sport Michael Zorc.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has no problem with Tottenham being linked to James Maddison.
