Heung-min Son celebrates scoring Spurs’ third goal .

 

Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane fired Tottenham to a 3-1 win over Leicester and above Arsenal into fourth in the Premier League – for a few hours at least.

 

After defeat to Brighton and a draw at Brentford in their last two outings Spurs could ill-afford another setback in their pursuit of Champions League football, but their trusted strike force delivered another inspired performance to lift them back into the top four.

 

Kane ended a five-game goal drought with a 22nd-minute header from Son’s first-half corner before Dejan Kulusevski, a surprise omission from the Spurs starting XI, came off the bench to set up Son for the second on the hour.

Son then put the game to bed with a sensational curled finish into the top corner of the Leicester net with 11 minutes remaining as Spurs climbed above Arsenal and piled the pressure on their north London rivals ahead of their trip to West Ham later on Sunday.

Leicester’s spirited performance, in spite of making wholesale changes, was rewarded with a late consolation from Kelechi Iheanacho, whose stoppage-time strike sent the Foxes into Thursday’s decisive Europa Conference League semi-final second leg at Roma on a positive note.

 

Son & Kane inspire Tottenham’s top-four bid.

 

The breakthrough came midway through the half when Kane was afforded the freedom of the Leicester area and stooped to head in Son’s corner unmarked at the near post – his 17th goal in 14 Premier League appearances against the Foxes.
