Dele Alli scored his 50th goal for Tottenham as Mauricio Pochettino’s side moved back up to third in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
Spurs, who started the game in fifth after Arsenal’s last-gasp win over Huddersfield and Chelsea’s victory over Manchester City, started with Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen on the bench but Heung-Min Son’s superb strike on the stroke of half-time put them on course for victory.
Son was involved in his side’s second, teeing up Alli, who headed home to bring up a half-century of Spurs goals and secure a routine win.
Victory sees Spurs reclaim third and cut the gap to league leaders Liverpool to six points, while Leicester, who did not have a shot on target until the 87th minute, stay ninth.
