Commentary

That's all from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium today, so thank you for joining us and goodbye!
Following victory to celebrate Conte's 100th Premier League game, Spurs next face a tough trip to Anfield, before the potentially pivotal North London derby on May 12. Leicester, meanwhile, will have all eyes on the Eternal City, as they take on Roma for a place in the Europa Conference League final on Thursday.
With a comprehensive win over distracted opponents, Tottenham take three points that lift them into the top four - for now, at least, as arch-rivals Arsenal are in action later. Under Conte, Spurs are comfortable conceding most of the possession, and they did so today while proving to be much the sharper side in the final third. A lame Leicester showing was ultimately punished by the combination of second-half substitute Kulusevski and the irrepressible Son, and the hunt for Champions League qualification goes on.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM 3-1 LEICESTER CITY
90' + 2' CLOSE! Spurs narrowly miss out on a fourth goal, as Kane is just off target with a left-footed shot from outside the box. It ends up looping onto the top-left corner of the net.
K. Ịheanachọ
Goal
90' + 1' LEICESTER GET ONE BACK! Too late, of course, but Iheanacho improves the scoreline by finding the net with an excellent individual effort. The striker evades two Tottenham defenders to tee up a low strike from 20 yards, and picks out the bottom corner via the right-hand post; leaving Lloris helpless. Spurs' lead is cut to 3-1!
Y. Tielemans
Assist
90' + 1' Tielemans played the final pass to his team-mate, but there was still plenty to do before Iheanacho thumped the ball home.
89' JUST WIDE! Vardy flashes a header past the far post, after his fellow substitute Tielemans threads a cross into the box from the right-hand side. That was a good chance to at least snatch a consolation.
87' Though they have had most of the ball over the past few minutes, Leicester look every inch a defeated side, as they shift possession rather aimlessly around the pitch. Tottenham are just sitting back and soaking it up - they know three points are just moments away now.
85' After Schmeichel races out of his box to clear away the danger posed by Kane lurking, Mendy drives towards the Spurs back four, but is brought down by a late tackle from Bergwijn.
83' Son departs having netted his 19th league goal of season, making him Tottenham's leading scorer in the Premier League this term.
S. Bergwijn
Son Heung-Min
82' Another change sees Son receive a warm round of applause from the home fans, as he makes way for Bergwijn up front.
H. Winks
R. Bentancur
82' With the game effectively won, Conte rests Bentancur; Winks comes on in the Spurs midfield.
D. Kulusevski
Assist
79' Though it was Son's strike which will rightly garner the attention, another well-placed pass by substitute Kulusevski set the chance up.
Son Heung-Min
Goal
79' A SON SCREAMER! Wrapping up the points in style, Son receives the ball from Kulusevski again on the edge of the area, then takes a touch before unfurling a wondrous curling strike which nestles in the top-left corner. What a beauty! Spurs lead 3-0: game over!
77' Kulusevski comes off worst in an aerial challenge with Soyuncu, but after shaking off a knock he is able to continue.
Y. Tielemans
Ayoze Pérez
76' Leicester make a third change, as Perez is replaced by Tielemans.
73' With a header at the other end, Dier intervenes when Albrighton attempts to pick out Vardy in the centre of the six-yard box - getting the ball clear of danger.
71' Son's corner is headed weakly towards goal by Dier, and Schmeichel gathers the ball under no pressure inside the six-yard box.
69' Albrighton's inswinging corner from the left is headed clear from near the penalty spot; setting up a rapid counter-attack. Kulusevski is involved again, but his throughball is turned behind via a heavy deflection when Emerson attempts to cross into the box.
L. Brunt
B. Soumaré
67' Soumare is also withdrawn; young Brunt will be his replacement in the Leicester midfield.
J. Vardy
P. Daka
67' Rodgers has seen enough of his team's dismal display, so Daka is replaced by Vardy up front.
L. Thomas
Yellow Card
66' A crude swipe at the escaping Kulusevski near the halfway line earns Thomas a yellow card.
66' Son nods straight at Schmeichel's feet from inside the area, following a Hojbjerg cross from the left flank - all set up by a run and raking pass from Kulusevski.
64' NO RED! Amartey escapes further censure, and his offence merits only a booking, according to the VAR.
D. Amartey
Yellow Card
63' A high-footed challenge by Amartey on Kane inside the centre circle sees the defender booked by the referee.
63' Following Amartey's foul, the VAR is now analysing the incident to see whether it warranted a red rather than a yellow card. Leicester could go down to 10 men here!
D. Kulusevski
Assist
60' Keeping his composure inside the area, Kulusevski pulls the ball back across the box for Son to score.
Son Heung-Min
Goal
60' SON STRIKES! Spurs have a crucial second goal, as Romero wins the ball with a brilliant block tackle in midfield, before Kulusevski works his way into the box and cuts the ball back for Son - he allows the ball to run across him, turns and fires into the back of the net! It's Tottenham 2-0 Leicester!
R. Bentancur
Yellow Card
58' For his foul on Mendy, combative midfielder Bentancur is booked.
57' Mendy is angered by a Bentancur challenge in central midfield, which sees the visitors awarded a free-kick.
D. Kulusevski
Lucas Moura
55' Conte makes an early substitution, as Lucas is replaced by Kulusevski on the right wing; reverting to the Spurs team that started last week.
54' It has been a slow start to the second half so far, and neither side has been able to build any momentum due to several breaks in play.
53' Lucas and Soyuncu come together again, on the edge of the Leicester box, but the former's claims for a free-kick are denied by the referee and the game goes on.
51' Soyuncu gets himself penned in on the left side of Leicester's area, but thankfully for the centre-back, Lucas' charge-down flies out of play for a throw-in rather than into further trouble.
49' Leicester have won just one of their last 11 Premier League games on the road - only Burnley, Norwich City and Everton have fared worse away from home this season - and they are on course to see that record worsen further today.
M. Albrighton
Yellow Card
48' A challenge from behind on Bentancur sees Albrighton booked by the referee.
46' Spurs get us back under way at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
Rodgers has a number of attacking options open to him on the bench - Barnes and Vardy being the most likely pair to ride to the rescue - but may resist bringing them on for too long with next Thursday in mind. For Conte, meanwhile, victory today is essential, so his side must keep their foot on the gas.
Despite having less of the ball on home turf, Tottenham have created by far the more clear-cut chances in the opening half, and are good value for their one-goal lead at the break. Kane continues his relentless record of scoring against Leicester - who the England striker once represented on loan - and Schmeichel has had to be alert to prevent the home side increasing their advantage. Understandably, given the much-changed makeup of their team, the visitors have been disjointed at times and are perhaps distracted by their upcoming trip to Rome.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-0 LEICESTER CITY
45' After Sessegnon flips in an inviting cross from the left byline, Lucas is denied the chance to turn a diving header goalwards by the last-ditch intervention of Soyuncu, who covers well.
43' Schmeichel misses out in an aerial challenge with Romero, who goes down heavily while winning the ball, and a panicky period ensues inside the Leicester box. It finally ends when a Kane effort from the right bounces wide of the target.
41' Having been picked out in space, Sessegnon's heavy touch on the left side of the area allows Albrighton to get back into the box and clear the ball behind for a corner.
39' Almost making contact with Perez's mishit shot, which is dragged across the box, Daka just misses the ball with his outstretched boot. Lloris was struggling to cover his far post there, so that's a lucky escape for Spurs.
37' Tottenham boast a record of eight wins and one draw from 10 games when scoring the opener at home in the Premier League this season, so should be confident of going on to claim three points today.
35' Romero rises highest inside the Spurs area; heading away Albrighton's lofted free-kick from a central position just inside the home side's half.
33' SAVE! Latching onto a loose pass by Mendy deep inside the Leicester half, Kane breaks into the box. As he pokes a shot at goal, Schmeichel is quickly upon him to smother the ball at his feet. A let-off for the Foxes there!
31' Emerson goes down after losing a 50-50 challenge on the edge of Leicester's box, but after a brief moment of concern, the Spurs wing-back is able to hobble back into position on the right.
29' A heavy deflection on Davies' cross from the left byline carries the ball dangerously close to creeping in at Schmeichel's near post, but the Leicester captain gets down quickly to gather the ball.
28' Soyuncu has to head over in an awkward position, almost under his own crossbar, following a whipped cross from the left by the increasingly influential Son.
B. Davies
Yellow Card
26' For a crunching late tackle on Daka, Davies becomes the first player to receive a yellow card today.
24' Kane has now scored 19 goals in 18 appearances against Leicester in all competitions, more than against any other opponent in his career: 17 of those strikes have come in the Premier League.
Son Heung-Min
Assist
22' Picking out his strike partner in the area, Son's corner was struck with precision, to create the game's first goal.
H. Kane
Goal
22' SPURS LEAD! From Son's inswinging corner, Kane shakes off the attentions of Amartey in the box to get to the ball at the near post; powering his header past Schmeichel for the opening goal! He just loves scoring against Leicester! Tottenham are 1-0 up!
21' A curling Son free-kick into the box causes havoc in the Leicester defence, and the ball finally drops to Davies, who slices his effort over via a deflection. That'll be a Spurs corner.
20' Davies and Son combine to tee up Lucas for a strike 25 yards out from goal, but two grey Leicester shirts are quickly upon the Brazilian and his attempt is charged down.
18' Limping back onto the pitch, Perez is fit enough to continue and Leicester take the free-kick, which ultimately comes to nothing.
17' Perez is down on the turf after a coming together with Son deep inside the Spurs half. The game therefore comes to a temporary halt.
15' Davies dallies on the ball outside his own area, allowing Albrighton to steal in and take the ball. He quickly crosses into the box for Daka, but Romero makes a desperate lunging intervention to guide it away to safety from near the goal line.
13' OFF THE POST! Daka is denied by the woodwork, after being picked out by Soumare, who powered down the right and pulled back a low cross. The striker scuffed his low effort from just inside the area, but it still evaded Lloris' dive and thumped the upright! So close to a Leicester opener!
10' On the break, Perez embarks on another run at the Tottenham defence, and Bentancur leans too heavily on him; bringing the Foxes forward down and conceding a free-kick 30 yards from goal.
8' Drifting in from the left, Perez chops inside on the edge and pulls a low shot into the left side-netting. It appeared to take a deflection, but Spurs have a goal-kick.
7' While Spurs snatched a last-gasp 3-2 victory in Leicester back in January, the Foxes won the clubs' last Premier League meeting at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - recording a 2-0 win last season.
5' Son whips a cross in from the right byline, which Amartey manages to chest away, leading to shouts for a penalty from the Spurs fans amassed behind Leicester's goal. The referee is uninterested, though.
3' The visitors are able to get the ball away to relative safety following the corner, but Tottenham are pushing forward and have retained possession inside the Leicester half.
2' A thrusting run down the right sees Emerson earn an early Spurs corner, as his cross is blocked behind by an outstretched Leicester leg.
1' We are under way at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
The players are out on the pitch in North London, with kick-off now just moments away!
Between two significant European games for Leicester, Rodgers makes eight changes to the side which started against Roma on Thursday. Goalkeeper and captain Schmeichel, Castagne and Albrighton retain their places, while Vardy and Barnes drop to the bench; James Maddison misses out altogether. Daka leads the line up front.
Conte makes a single change to his team from last weekend's draw at Brentford, as Kulusevski drops out of the starting XI and Lucas replaces the Swedish winger in Tottenham's front three. Meanwhile, Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga - both out for the season - are joined by Oliver Skipp and wing-back Sergio Reguilon on the sidelines due to injury.
SUBS: Danny Ward, Hamza Choudhury, Jamie Vardy, Ademola Lookman, Lewis Brunt, Harvey Barnes, Youri Tielemans, James Justin, Wesley Fofana.
LEICESTER CITY (4-2-3-1): Kasper Schmeichel; Timothy Castagne, Caglar Soyuncu, Daniel Amartey, Luke Thomas; Nampalys Mendy, Boubakary Soumare; Marc Albrighton, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez; Patson Daka.
SUBS: Pierluigi Gollini, Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon, Harry Winks, Dejan Kulusevski, Harvey White, Matthew Craig, Steven Bergwijn, Dane Scarlett.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon; Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min.
Last time out, Leicester drew 1-1 with Roma in the first leg of their Europa Conference League semi-final, coming from behind at the King Power Stadium to stay on level terms in the tie. The Foxes have therefore drawn each of their last three matches, and taking just two points from the last nine on offer in the Premier League leaves them languishing 10th in the table. Ten points adrift of the top seven - though still with games in hand - winning the inaugural Conference League may well be the best remaining chance for Brendan Rodgers' side to return to Europe next term.
Following a goalless draw with Brentford last weekend, Tottenham have taken just one point from their last two Premier League games; failing to find the net in the process. Antonio Conte's side have therefore fallen behind North London rivals Arsenal in the race for the fourth Champions League place, and they trail by two points before kick-off. With a win today, though, Spurs can rise above the Gunners for at least a couple of hours, before Mikel Arteta's men take on West Ham United.
