(Reuters) - - Tottenham Hotspur moved back into third place in the Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Having seen Chelsea and Arsenal climb above them in the day’s earlier games, Tottenham knew anything other than three points would see them finish the weekend outside the top four.



Leicester are ninth after a first defeat in seven league games.



Leicester struggled to muster anything in reply, with Dele Alli making sure of the win in the 58th minute, heading home his 50th goal for Tottenham from Son’s cross.

The visitors could even afford to bring Kane on for a run out, but the England striker — who had scored 13 goals in his previous 11 appearances against Leicester in all competitions — could not add to his personal tally.

Tottenham’s fifth victory in six league games, and eighth on the road, moved them to within six points of leaders Liverpool.

They have 36 points with Chelsea and Arsenal on 34.
