Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino claimed the goal his side had disallowed by VAR inspired Leicester City to their victorious fightback at the King Power Stadium.

Spurs had a 1-0 lead through Harry Kane in the Premier League fixture on Saturday when Serge Aurier’s low angled drive nestled in the bottom corner of the net.

However, referee Paul Tierney reviewed the goal by VAR and it showed Son Heung-min was offside by the thinnest of margins in Spurs’ build-up so it was chalked off.

Sissoko: Leicester defeat was painful

  Sissoko: Leicester defeat was painful Moussa Sissoko has urged Tottenham to accept and move on quickly from their "painful" 2-1 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League. A 25-yard James Maddison second-half strike condemned last season's Champions League finalists to their second defeat in the league season against the Foxes, in a result which saw Leicester move up to third in the table.Tottenham meanwhile are seventh after the setback at the King Power Stadium and after the game, Mauricio Pochettino advocated their need to find a greater level of consistency at the start of the season.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was positive despite his side scuppering a one-goal lead at Leicester City to harm their top-four chances. Mauricio Pochettino described Premier League football as “beautiful” despite Tottenham failing to win on the road for the ninth top-flight game in a row.

"You have to deal with it, sometimes for you and against you. Have to accept it and move on. It was a very important three points.

"It's what happens with VAR, you have to get your head round it. It works for you and against you. It worked both ways for us today."

It meant Pochettino was left to rue another miserable Premier League away day without victory, a run that stretches back nine games to January.
