Leicester 0-2 Tottenham: Watch Goal Higlights

Goals from Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli helped secure Tottenham a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City.

The South Korean cut inside, before curling in a sumptuous left-footed effort from the edge of the area to give Kasper Schmeichel no chance for his third league goal of the season.

The absence of Jamie Vardy was massive for Leicester against Tottenham, who despite a positive start in the first half, never really troubled Hugo Lloris in goal, before the sucker-punch of Son's goal in the stroke of half-time really deflated them.

Kelechi Iheanacho couldn't fill the void in the England international's absence, while the Foxes over-reliance on both Vardy's pace and quality in front of goal is clear to see.

Leicester started the game well, with Claude Puel's side showing their pace on the counter-attack, with Demarai Gray key to that and caused Ben Davies a few problems, although a move to a central position in the second half meant he petered out the game a little.

Tottenham opted to start Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen on the bench with one eye on their crucial Champions League game against Barcelona, and for 45 first-half minutes, it looked the wrong decision.

Pochettino's side looked disorderly going forward playing without a recognised striker in Kane, however a sublime strike from Son in added time in the first half changed the course of the game, while Alli's goal in the second half meant Kane and Eriksen could afford to get a run-out in a routine win, rather than use them to try and salvage a result.
