Tottenham vs Leicester LIVE: Premier League latest score and goal updates as Son Heung-min hits stunner

Table unfair on Leicester – Conte

Tottenham Hotspur host Leicester in the Premier League this evening as Antonio Conte’s side look to get back to winning ways following their midweek defeat to Sporting Lisbon.

Spurs saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end as Sporting scored two late goals in their Champions League group stage match and an improved performance against Leicester would go a long way to easing some doubts.

Leicester, meanwhile, are desperate for a win that would lift Brendan Rodgers’ side off the bottom of the Premier League table. The Foxes have lost five matches in a row, with the 5-2 defeat to Brighton signalling their lowest point of the season so far.

Rodgers is under considerable pressure but the Leicester manager will have had time to regroup his squad as they look for their first win of the season. Follow Tottenham vs Leicester in the Premier League, below:

GOAL! Tottenham 4-2 Leicester (Son, 73’)⚽️

73 mins: Son Heung-min ends his goal drought with a banger!

James Justin loses the ball to Rodrigo Bentancur and sends it up to Son who drives up the pitch. He’s got Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg alongside him but Son only has eyes for goal.

He twists away from Wout Faes and smokes his effort straight past Danny Ward from outside the penalty area!

Great finish to open up Son’s account for the year.

72 mins: Kulusevski is taken off now by Antonio Conte with Yves Bissouma brought on to replace him for the final 20 minutes or so.

69 mins: The pattern of the game is firmly counter-attacking from Spurs now. They’re sat deep, letting Leicester have the ball and hoping the pace and skill of Kane, Son and Kulusevski can give the home side a fourth goal.

A Leicester goal should shake things up.

He carries it into the box and side foots his effort wide of Danny Ward to slot the ball home off the inside of the post!
