On the stroke of halftime, Youri Tielemans nearly levelled the scoring in bizarre circumstances. The Belgian, who was making his Leicester debut, hit the ball so sweetly from right by the corner flag that the swerve on it took it on target. Hugo Lloris fumbled the ball behind but actually did well do read the situation and get over in time to save himself embarrassment.
The second half proved to be a lot like the first for Leicester as they failed to take the key chances in the match. Firstly Demarai Gray had an opportunity to equalise after getting on the end of a Periera cross between Sanchez and Trippier. His header however was straight at Lloris when he would have certainly scored if he put it either side of the Spurs keeper.
Soon after Leicester were given the greatest opportunity yet to score after being awarded a penalty when James Maddison was fouled by Jan Vertonghen. Jamie Vardy had not started the match for Leicester but incredibly came off the substitute bench to take the penalty as his first involvement in the game. His penalty was a comfortable height for Lloris who was able to tip it round the post. It was a hectic three minutes of football and Vardy was made to rue his miss later on.
Once again Spurs made Leicester pay and scored only a few minutes after a Leicester golden opportunity. This time it was good pressing from Oliver Skipp, which forced Leciester into a mistake. Fernando Llorente ended up with possession and gave the ball to Eriksen on the edge of the area who took one touch before firing past Schmeichel into the bottom corner to double the advantage for Spurs.
Leicester were still not giving up and in all honesty did not deserve to be 2-0 down. Harvey Barnes again missed a huge chance, having plenty of time and space to pick out a shot, but being denied by the feet of Lloris, who had an impressive game for Spurs.
The Foxes finally took one of their chances with fifteen minutes to go though. It was a simple yet well-worked goal as nice interplay between Tielemans and Periera allowed the Portuguese full back to set up Vardy who could not miss from inside the six yard box.
That set up a nervy ending for Spurs, however Heung-min Son was to have the last say. A promising Leicester attack was cleared by Moussa Sissoko before ending up with Son just inside the Spurs half. The South Korean could not be caught and made no mistake in finishing, showing Leicester a ruthless side that they did not bring to Wembley.
That goal finally took the sting out of Leicester and ensured that Spurs won their fourth Premier League match in a row to keep in touch with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table.

Spurs v Leicester Man of the Match
Christian Eriksen’s display was arguably the difference between the two sides as he scored one and assisted Sanchez’s opener. He was the class act Spurs needed to link midfield and attack and his range of passing ability, along with his exceptional first touch control, make him one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
What’s Up Next for Spurs?
Spurs return to Wembley and the Champions League on Wednesday when they take on Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the first knockout round. After that Spurs have an extended period of rest before an away match against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday 23rd February.
