90+1' 

There will be a minimum of four added minutes. Hirst has a pop from long range, but it's well wide.

90' 

A good cross from the left by Spurs, but Kane is unusually on his heels as it flies across the six-yard box. A dart to the front or back post might have secured a hat-trick.

Hirst replaces Barnes for Leicester.

82' 

As things stand Leicester are still fourth in the table, on goals scored ahead of Manchester United. If they ship another one here, they'll slip to fifth. It's been a flat second half, and the visitors look like they're happy to take their medicine at 3-0.

81' 

Davies plays a ball over the top to Kane. He's clear and deposits the ball in the bottom corner, but he was several yards offside.

79' 

Praet moves to the edge of the area unchallenged, and lets a shot go with his left foot from 25 yards that goes horribly wide.

77'

Changes for Spurs - Bergwijn and Lamela replace Lo Celso and Lucas Moura.

76' 

Patient play from Leicester works a shooting chance for Gray from the edge of the area, but he lashes the ball high over the bar.

70'

Changes for Leicester at the drinks break - Mendy and Praet are on for Tielemans and Ndidi.

68' 

Lloris punches a corner away to the edge of the area. Justin has a go on the volley, but slashes it well wide. There's a VAR check for a foul in the area by Sanchez, but there's nothing doing.

66' 

Son leads a three on three break for Spurs. He hangs on to it just too long though, and is dispossessed with a sliding challenge. Kane was on to his right in a good position there.

64' 

Barnes spins away from Winks in the middle, and runs at the Spurs back four. He shoots low with his right from 20 yards, but there's no power on it and Lloris gathers comfortably.

62' 

A lovely, route one move from Leicester. A long ball finds Vardy, who lays it off first time for the onrushing Barnes. He bursts into the area with the ball and Sanchez has to come across to put the ball behind for a corner.

Morgan gets his head to a corner but puts it over from twelve yards out. Alderweireld did well to put him off.

GOOD SAVE! Gray takes, the ball clips slightly off Sissoko and Lloris turns the ball over for a corner.

57' 

Lucas Moura goes through the back of Tielemans. That's a yellow, and a central free kick for Leicester just under thirty yards out.

56' 

Tielemans whips a dangerous free kick into the back post. Davies just about gets a flick on the ball to divert it for a corner, with Morgan waiting at the back post.

53' 

Justin whips a dangerous cross to the back post, where Thomas just fails to get on the end of it after getting the wrong side of Lucas Moura. Spurs then break quickly and Kane is one on one with Morgan. Kane scuffs his shot with his left foot and it catches a slight deflection to go behind for a corner.

49' 

Leicester work the ball to Gray on the right of the Spurs area. He tries to go wide of Davies and shoot, but it's blocked away for a throw-in.

47' 

CHANCE! A stunning reverse ball from Kane puts Son clean through behind the Leicester defence. Son takes a touch and looks set to make it four, but slips as he goes through and hits the deck. What an opportunity for the fourth.

What an extraordinary few minutes. Perez has a crack now from the edge of the area, which Lloris comfortably palms over the bar.

What a wonderful goal from Kane. Lucas Moura plays a ball to far ahead of Kane, into the Leicester area on the left. Kane retrieves it, cuts across Bennett and then curls a glorious strike into the far corner with his right foot. Stunning.

39' 

That's a tough one for Leicester, who've had the better of the play and chances so far.

GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 2 (Kane 37) Leicester City 0

Spurs are two ahead! After clearing the corner they suddenly freak four on two on Leicester. Lucas Moura times his through ball into the area perfectly, and Kane sweeps his left foot shot into the bottom corner past Schmeichel. That's a wonderfully incisive goal.

37' 

Pressure from Leicester again as they win another corner. They've had a good half here, can they draw level?

34' 

Barnes cuts inside from the left, and ventures on a long run into the Spurs area. He tries to take Sanchez on the outside, but Sanchez stands up well and nicks the ball away.

32' 

It has now been confirmed that the opening goal was indeed an own goal by James Justin.

30' 

EXCELLENT SAVE! Winks picks out Son over the top with a raking fifty yard pass. Son is clear, and lets it bounce before volleying the ball at goal from 18 yards out. Schmeichel throws a hand up and tips the ball over the bar.

28' 

Sissoko coughs the ball up in midfield, and Ndidi finds Tielemans. He looks to have the pass on to Barnes on the left to put him through, but a flailing leg from Sanchez diverts the ball back to Lloris. Leicester are looking likely here.

25' 

WHAT A SAVE! Thomas is causing Spurs bother down the left. He breaks free again, and finds Perez near the penalty spot with his cross. Perez chests the ball down and volleys it at the bottom corner in one sweet movement, and Lloris dives it full stretch to turn it around the post.

22' 

Drinks break.

20' 

CHANCE! Morgan plants a header at goal from a corner. It lands at the feet of Vardy, who is facing away from goal. Vardy tries to back heel it into the net, and Lloris saves with his feet to put the ball behind for a corner.

19' 

Barnes drills in a cross to Vardy at the near post. Vardy glances it at goal but it deflects off Sanchez and goes behind for a corner.

17' 

Perez gets a run at the Spurs back four, but he's got no support. He takes on Alderweireld and gets past him, but his low shot is blocked by the sliding Sanchez.

15' 

Kane almost catches Leicester's back three too high, with a reverse pass that nearly releases Son. He's a problem for Leicester at the moment when he drops deep.

13' 

Leicester work Thomas into a good crossing position on the left again. His low cross finds Vardy near the penalty spot, but the shot is blocked by Alderweireld.

11' 

Leicester have recovered well since the goal. Barnes spins nicely in the final third and finds Thomas on the left, but his low cross is intercepted.

8' 

CHANCE! Leicester are almost straight back into it as Vardy nods a cross over from ten yards out. That was a clean look, and a poor finish from Vardy. Just on the Spurs goal, it's unclear at the moment whether Son or Justin will be credited with it.

6'

GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1 (Justin o.g. 6) Leicester City 0

Spurs are ahead! A lovely ball from the outside of Kane's right foot releases Son down the left. Son cuts inside and makes it to the area. He shoots for the far corner, but the ball hits Justin in the centre and goes into the opposite corner with Schmeichel completely wrong-footed.

4' 

Sissoko brings down Barnes, free kick on the corner off the Tottenham box to the visitors.

3' 

Lo Celso tries to pick out Kane with an inswinging cross; he puts too much on it though, and it bounces into the hands of Schmeichel.

2' 

Lucas Moura slides a diagonal ball through to Kane, but it's just ahead of him and forces Kane wide. What briefly looked like an opening quickly closes.

KICK-OFF 

We're underway at the Tottenham Stadium.

15:59 

The players all take the knee before kick-off, because black lives matter.

15:54 

We're almost ready to go here. Your referee today will be Anthony Taylor.

15:47 

A quick update on the race for the European places here:

15:43 

In the reverse of this fixture at the King Power Stadium in September, Leicester snagged all three points with a brilliant late strike from James Maddison.

15:38 

Tottenham have the historical edge between the two, with 56 wins to 36 and 21 draws in all competitions. One of the most significant fixtures between the two came 59 years ago, when Spurs beat Leicester in the FA Cup Final to seal the first Double of the 20th century.

15:33 

Leicester City by contrast can get back into the Champions League for the first time since their inaugural effort in 2016-17. My oh my though, it’s tight; they currently occupy the fourth and final qualifying position, one point behind Chelsea in third and only ahead of Manchester United in fifth on goal difference. Leicester host United on the final day next Sunday, and Brendan Rodgers’ team need to position themselves as best as possible before that effective decider.

15:28 

For a manager deemed by many to be using outdated methods, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has managed to put together an impressive run of recent form. Spurs have taken ten points from their last twelve, including a victory in the North London derby last Sunday and a midweek victory at Newcastle United. It’s too late for the Champions League places, but Spurs are in with a shout of qualifying for the Europa League next season if they can win here and at Crystal Palace next week.

15:23 

There are no changes for either side today. Tottenham retain the same XI that beat Newcastle United on Wednesday, while Leicester stick with the same team that beat Sheffield United on Thursday.

15:18
