Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min deserved a penalty in the 3-1 home win over Leicester City on Sunday and it was “unbelievable” that he was booked for diving instead by referee Michael Oliver, manager Mauricio Pochettino has said. Son appeared to be tripped by Leicester defender Harry Maguire in the first half but Oliver brandished a yellow card to the South Korea international with replays showing Maguire’s boot had made contact with his shin.

“Do you think that Sonny deserved to be booked? Unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable,” Pochettino told reporters after the game. “It was a penalty, the same referee,” he added as he recalled an incident when the club were denied a penalty against Liverpool earlier this season.
