- Foxes led by two at half-time after superb strikes from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.
- Erik Lamela came off the bench for his first appearance in over 13 months to provide an assist for Harry Kane with just over 10 minutes of the match remaining.
- Tottenham now have just one win in their last five Premier League matches and could be down to seventh if Liverpool and Burnley win on Wednesday.
- Crystal Palace meanwhile held rivals Brighton to a goalless draw at the AMEX.
A breathless finale to the second-half at King Power has drawn to a close and Leicester have hung on. Harry Kane pulled one back late on, with the returning Erik Lamela involved straight away in setting it up, but it wasn't enough in the end and it is now just one win in five for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
Full-time: Leicester City 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Replays show Rose might have kicked the ground there rather than being caught by a Leicester defender, but it looked a very tricky call.
Spurs want a penalty as Rose goes down on the box, but the ref waves play on and Leicester swarm forward on the counter! It's two on one as Gray races towards goal with Vardy waiting across from him inside the box but his pass to his teammate is pretty dreadful, allowing time for Spurs to get some men back and close him down.
Full-time: Brighton 0-0 Crystal Palace
Lamela now stands over a corner and the delivery is good, into the six yard area where Dier is looming large. His connection isn't good however, nodding over the bar.
But Tottenham waste it with Son's ball across goal failing to find any teammates. Four minutes of time added on.
Leicester win a free kick and try to launch it into Chilwell in a corner but his poor first touch allows Tottenham to break...
Here's a final change for Leicester, Islam Slimani is on for Vardy.
Kitchen-sink time for Spurs! Rose this time comes forward and whips the ball into the box that should be straight forward for Schmeichel but Chilwell gets in his way, causing a moment of panic but eventually they clear between the two of them. Schmeichel follows it up with another brilliant punch clear.
HUGE MISS BY LLORENTE! Aurier hammers a hugely inviting ball across goal with the Spaniard lurking on the edge of the six yard box but he puts his effort over the bar.
Spurs almost pick their way through again! This time is is Son who almost finds Aurier inside the six yard area but Morgan clears just in time.
Finally Spurs have one back! And it is an immediate impact from Erik Lamela who threads the decisive pass through for Kane who races onto it and lashes it into the roof of the net.
Goal! Leicester City 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Harry Kane, 79)
And with that Eriksen comes off, replaced for the final 13 minutes by the returning Erik Lamela. Leicester have also made a change with Demarai Gray replacing Mahrez.
Oh dear, Christian Eriksen. Son drives down the right and forces a ball across goal that takes a pretty deflection of Simpson. The ball breaks kindly to Eriksen, who has the entire goal to aim for but on the half-volley, lashes wide! Shocking miss.
Another Spurs move breaks down with Eriksen's attempts to free Kane smothered by Morgan, who keeps tight to the striker and relieves the pressure for his side.
Dembele's evening is over, Fernando Llorente is onto replace the midfielder.
25 minutes left here at the King Power with Tottenham still chasing the game.
Lots more urgency from Spurs in this half; they are onto every second ball at the moment. Davinson Sanchez finds himself as the furthest man forward and his side win the ball back high up the pitch and find him just outside the six yard area, but he can't keep his header down.
Mauricio Pochettino isn't hanging around with his changes; Heung-Min Son is onto replace Sissoko just before the hour mark.
Okazaki should make it three! It;s excellent work from Vardy he retrieves a ball down the byline and works is back out to Albrighton who swings a cross into the Japan international. He has peeled off his marker to leap for the ball but can't reach it with any sort of control and powers his effort over.
Close, but not close enough from Harry Kane. He looks for the top corner but can't quite find they target. His side need an early goal.
And we are back underway at the King Power Stadium.
