One of them, Son Heung-min, has discovered his best form in recent weeks and gave Kasper Schmeichel no chance with an exceptional opener; the other, Dele Alli, made things safe after a slick break and the wider benefits of such a comfortable night’s work may become apparent soon enough.

Tottenham’s manager must have acknowledged the element of risk in weakening his lineup against a Leicester side who were unbeaten in seven games but everything fell into place in a way that, with a potentially season-defining night in Barcelona looming on Tuesday, affords them the best possible chance of salvaging their Champions League campaign.

Almost immediately their best intentions fell flat.

Spurs’ second goal was a tour de force from their front three.

When Puel introduced Marc Albrighton and Rachid Ghezzal from the bench, Leicester appeared primed to have a go.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen were only required to make second-half appearances, by which time the game had been won by their two most reliable attacking side-kicks.

Mauricio Pochettino gambled, and saw it pay off handsomely.
