“It was the perfect answer,” he said. “It was a fantastic performance. Without Jamie Vardy everyone gave something more. We knew we had some difficulties but with the fight of everybody we had a good match.
“We know it will be tough because Tottenham are a good team but we will fight until the end. Tottenham could win all their matches, so we still need five points.
“We dream and now it is important to make the dream a reality. It is important to fight for that reality. Now is the right moment to push with everything so that there are no regrets if Tottenham are better than us.” Leonardo Ulloa, in for Vardy, scored twice either side of the break, in between Rihad Mahrez’s early opener and Marc Albrighton’s late final flourish.
And the stand-in striker claimed that the win proved that Leicester are not simply a one-man team.
