Leicester boss Puel happy Spurs looking at Maddison

In a weird turn of events, Vardy came off the bench for Gray and walked straight up to the spot to take the penalty, only for Lloris to dive to his right and push it away to safety.

- Gray (22y 226d) made his 100th Premier League appearance in this match - only Emile Heskey (21y 114d) played his 100th game for the Foxes in the competition at a younger age. The problem is, I told Michael Oliver, the situation of Liverpool in the last minute that should be a penalty, but it was a clear penalty.

Leicester, who missed good chances at a steady rate through the game, have now lost five of their last six games in all competitions as the pressure grows on Claude Puel.

Prior to Tottenham's tie against Leicester on Sunday afternoon, Shearer confessed that he has been impressed with the way Mauricio Pochettino's men have stayed within touching distance of the league's front runners Liverpool and Manchester City.

Lloris said: 'I know him a little more than other players. It was a game in our hands, and we had a lot of chances and created a lot of good moves.

Asked whether he was pleased to see Vardy taking the penalty, Pochettino said: "Now, yes, but more than the mistake of whoever shot, it was a massive save from my keeper. I think he's going to feel awesome now". Known for accurate spot-kicks, Jamie Vardy took responsibility but failed to beat Lloris from 12-yards out.

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

The South Korean went on to get on the scoresheet at Wembley, putting the finishing touches on a win that had been set up by Davinson Sanchez and Christian Eriksen goals.

But Lloris came to Tottenham's rescue, plunging to his right to keep out Vardy's spot-kick.

It proved a key moment as Eriksen doubled Tottenham's lead just three minutes later as he picked up Llorente's lay-off on the edge of the box and curled an inch-perfect effort into the corner past Schmeichel.

Vardy gave Leicester hope in the 76th minute, pouncing from close-range to convert Pereira's cross in typically predatory fashion.
