It was a rotten afternoon for Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, July 19 after Tottenham defeated the Foxes 3-0 with Harry Kane bagging a brace in space of three minutes.
Spurs looked determined from the first blast of the whistle and were already 1-0 ahead when James Justin held his head in his hands as he puts the ball past his own goalkeeper.
Son showcased some trickery on the edge of the box and was lucky as his effort deflected off Justin and goes in.

And in the 37th minute, it was 2-0 when Harry Kane finished off a delightful Tottenham counter attack.
A great finish across his body as it slots in via the side netting to double the hosts lead; and barely two minutes later, it was 3-0 when Kane completed his brace after he cut in on his right foot and curls the ball into the far corner.
It was 3-0 at half time with Jose Mourinho's men looking good as both teams went into the tunnel.
With the restart in the second half, Leicester City who were determined made quick changes with Ryan Bennett coming off for Demarai Gray and then Kelechi Iheanacho replaced Ayoze Perez.
Three other changes were made by desperate Foxes but all to no avail as their quest for a Champions League spot now looks bleak. It ended; Tottenham 3-0 Leicester City.
With the result, Tottenham are now sixth on the Premier League standings with 58 points with one game left. They will hope to Wolverhampton Wanderers slump on Monday night against Crystal Palace.
Leicester City on the other hand now have their UEFA Champions League qualification hopes hanging in the balance.
