Heung-Min Son scored a hat-trick for Spurs, ending his goal drought in a bright way all within 13 minutes.
Spurs had trailed to Youri Tielemans’ early penalty before taking advantage of the Foxes’ failings at set-pieces as Harry Kane and Eric Dier nodded home from corners to turn the game around.
James Maddison was the other scorer for Brendan Rodgers side before Son finished off the visitors with a scintillating treble.
With the win, Spurs have moved up to second on the log on 17 points, tied with leaders Manchester City who have superior goal difference.
For Leicester, it seems relegation is looking certain this season after their sixth defeat in seven (7) matches. The Foxes are rock bottom with just a point from a possible 21.
