Harry Kane was rested by Pochettino.

So step forward Son Heung-min and Dele Alli, whose goals either side of half-time were enough to see off a Leicester side who offered little genuine threat without the injured Jamie Vardy.

With one small caveat, it was a perfect night for Mauricio Pochettino as his side cruised to victory at Leicester City while setting their sights squarely on Barcelona.

Finally there was some joy for the visitors a minute later when Dele Alli found space on the right and crossed towards Son Heung-min, forcing Ricardo Pereira into an important interception inside Leicester’s six-yard box.

Leicester made a double-change on 56 minutes in an effort to improve their fortunes but just two minutes later they found themselves 2-0 down.

In the aftermath Tottenham should have tested Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal but Moussa Sissoko had a poor final pass intercepted with Son and Alli unmarked and bearing down on goal.
