Harry Kane and Son Heung-min score as Tottenham boost top-four hopes

Son Heung-min scored twice and Harry Kane rediscovered his touch in front of goal as Tottenham beat Leicester to boost their hopes of a top-four Premier League finish.

Kane, goalless in his previous five Spurs games, headed in the opener from Son’s corner.

Son stroked in the second after being picked out by Dejan Kulusevski, then curled in a sensational third.

Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho scored a consolation with a crisp strike.

Spurs moved into fourth place at the expense of Arsenal, who play at West Ham later on Sunday.

“It was a great, great afternoon, a great match, and a great performance from the team. We totally deserved it,” said Son, who has scored 19 league goals this season.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers made eight changes to his starting XI, with the game coming in the middle of their two-legged Europa Conference League semi-final against Roma.

The Foxes remain 11th in the Premier League table, meaning winning Europe’s third club competition seems their only realistic route into continental action next season.
