Despite Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen starting on the bench, Tottenham picked up a comfortable 2-0 victory over Leicester City, thanks to goals from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli.
Looking to reclaim third spot from Chelsea, who had earlier defeated champions Manchester City, Spurs took a little while to settle in and struggled to find any clear chances.
But just when it looked like the first-half was condemned to finish scoreless, Son popped up with a brilliant shot into the top corner in stoppage time to calm nerves.
With the Foxes struggling to do much going forward without the injured Jamie Vardy, Alli’s strike after the interval all but ensured there was no way back for the hosts.
The 22-year-old had steadily grown into the game and finally got his reward when he scored a diving header just before the hour mark, with his Korean teammate providing the assist.
While the midfielder’s 50th goal for the North London club would have delighted fans, his brilliant touch to control a high ball in the opposition box is another moment that might interest the Spurs faithful.
