Tottenham Hotspur kept alive their hopes of finishing fourth in the Premier League and with it the chance of qualifying for next year's UEFA Champions League after a comfortable 3-1 victory over Leicester. Brendan Rodgers made eight changes as Leicester City prioritised their Europa Conference semi final second leg with Roma on Thursday night. 

Both teams were evenly matched in the first half until a Heung-Min Son corner was buried by a near post header from Harry Kane; his first goal in five matches. At half time, 1-0 flattered Tottenham and it took until midway through the second half for the game to be decided. Cristian Romero led by example with some crunching tackles and then Dejan Kulusevski made an immediate impact when he came on as a substitute for Lucas Moura, crossing for Son who swivelled in the penalty box and guided the ball past the depairing dive of Kaspar Schmeichel. 

Two goals became three when fans favourite Son scored a magnificent curling left foot scorcher from outside the box with just over ten minutes of the match to go. 

The Foxes battled until the end and were rewarded with a deserved consolation goal in injury time from Kelechi Iheanacho.

Chris Greenslade, a season ticket holder for over 40 years summed up the victory by saying excitedly, "It's all going to be decided by the North London derby versus Arsenal on the 12th May."

With Arsenal beating West Ham 2-1 at the London Stadium to maintain their two point advantage, he could well be right.
