Harry Kane scored the opener from the penalty kick spot after Cedric Soares’ foul on Son Heung-min.

It was a coming together with the South Korean that resulted in Rob Holding being shown a second yellow card in the 33rd minute.

Kane doubled his tally before half-time and Son put the result beyond doubt early in the second period.

This put Antonio Conte’s men firmly in contention for a UEFA Champions League spot.

Tottenham were awarded a penalty kick in the 22nd minute when Cedric shoved Son over in the box.

Kane showed great composure to send his spot-kick into the bottom-right corner.

Holding was given his marching orders after catching Son in the head with his arm and Spurs doubled their advantage just four minutes later.

Son’s corner-kick was helped on towards the back post by Rodrigo Bentancur, with Kane stooping to nod into the back of the net from close range.
