🏆 Leno is our March Player of the Month
As Tottenham pressed for an equaliser before half-time, they created not one but two clear-cut opportunities in the space of a few seconds.
First Bernd Leno blocked Christian Eriksen's close-range volley, before jumping to his feet and somehow pushing Moussa Sissoko's goalbound follow-up effort over the bar.
It was sensational goalkeeping from Leno - but how did he see that moment? This is what he told the media afterwards:
on his double save before half-time...
I don't know what happened, everything was so quick. Sissoko shot, I didn't see the ball, I just reacted: I think the best saves are always those when you don't quite know what happens!
on whether he's frustrated with the draw...
It is very frustrating because we conceded a late goal and also had chances to score with the penalty. We were a bit unlucky but that's football. The first half was good and the second was not our best game, and the equaliser was deserved for Tottenham but in the end we had the chance to [win it].
on Kane being offside before the equaliser...
I didn't know that, I didn't realise during the game because everything goes so quick. That is unlucky it was offside, but we can't change it, we don't have video referees so we can't change it, we have to accept it.
on a good team performance overall...
I think it was a very good spirit we showed, especially away we don't always play like today but don't need only spirit against team like Spurs, you need it in all the away games. We have to look forward to the other away games, they are the key to getting a top-four place.
on whether they can finish into the top four...
Our confidence is very big because we are still in a good moment, we played well against a strong team, especially in the first half when we controlled the game. Next week we have another big home game against Man United that we want to win against another team who wants to get into the top four.
