The goals both came after the break with the hosts opening the scoring six minutes into the second half.

Phillipe Coutinho was the man who found the net after first picking the ball up 25 yards out and then, after playing a great one-two with Daniel Sturridge, found himself with just enough space inside the box to hit a first time shot into the far corner beyond the outstretched Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham equalised on 63 minutes when Harry Kane continued his great goalscoring form when he showed good skill to turn tightly on the spot and hit a first time strike past Simon Mignolet.

Lloris was called into action on 21 minutes to smartly stop what would have been an own goal by Heung-Min Son after he deflected an Alberto Moreno ball in.

The Spurs shot stopper was on hand again four minutes before the break when he pulled off a brilliant save to deny an Adam Lallana effort.

Tottenham had opportunities of their own including a fast-moving counter-attack in the first half, but when the ball found Kane he ran into the box but only managed to drag his shot wide, while another chance of note came on 66 minutes when Christian Eriksen hit a low shot that Mignolet pushed away.

Spurs now trail Leicester by four points with the Foxes in action at home against Southampton on Sunday afternoon.
