With Tuesday's crucial Champions League group-stage finale at Barcelona ahead, Mauricio Pochettino left the attacking duo on the bench and Spurs suffered before Heung-Min Son broke the deadlock with a stunning goal on the stroke of half-time.

Tottenham moved back ahead of rivals Arsenal and Chelsea with an impressive 2-0 win at Leicester City, despite resting Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.

Dele Alli made sure of the result and reached a half-century of Tottenham goals after the break, as Spurs moved to within six points of the top of the table.

Dan Kilpatrick was at the King Power Stadium to provide analysis for Standard Sport.

None of the support cast of Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli looked ready to take centre stage until Son's beauty in first-half stoppage-time.

For 45 minutes, Spurs looked toothless in the absence of Kane and Eriksen.

Alli's 50th Spurs goal was reminiscent of his first goal for the club – also a back-post header on the same patch of grass and against the same 'keeper back in August 2015.
