Harry Kane and Dele Alli both scored twice as Tottenham beat Stoke 4-0 to cut Leicester’s lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.
The England pair took it in turns to find the net on a comfortable night for Mauricio Pochettino’s men at the Britannia Stadium, with the hosts offering precious little resistance throughout.
“Leicester City, we’re coming for you” bellowed the raucous travelling support after Kane’s ninth-minute opener, which Christian Eriksen came close to adding to as half-time approached with a strike that rattled the crossbar.
Alli’s exceptional flick put the Danish playmaker through and the roles reversed in the 67th minute when the England midfielder collected a stunning pass and coolly lifted the ball over Shay Given.
Kane ensured Alli’s miss-of-the-season contender moments later mattered little by slotting home Spurs’ third, taking his tally for the season to 24 – one more than rudderless Aston Villa have managed this term.
Alli volleyed home an exceptional fourth late on as Tottenham produced a display which shows Leicester they would be pushed to the end.
