Full time: Leicester 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Not a cup tie that will live long in the memory as Spurs saunter into the fourth round after a comfortable win. Heung-min Son and Nacer Chadli scored in either half against a Leicester team who offered very little through the 90 minutes. Not a classic but it will be Tottenham who travel to League One Colchester United on Saturday 20 January. Well that is all we have time for on his FA Cup live text. We'll have all the reaction to tonight's games on the way but until then, goodbye.

Three added minutes at the King Power Stadium.

Chance for Leicester as Albrighton volleys goalwards but Vorm makes a fine save.

Jamie Vardy gets free for the first time since coming on, but his shot is blocked by Dier and Vorm picks the ball up. Less than three minutes of normal time remaining.

Dele Alli on eventually for Heung-min Son. Seven minutes left.

Okazaki, Vardy and Ulloa combine but Vorm cuts out the pull back. Leicester running out of time.

Wasilewski hacks down Harry Kane on the far touchline and Pochettino is fuming. The England man dusts himself down and gets on with things though, much to the relief of the Spurs boss.

Jamie Vardy on for Leicester is Claudio Ranieri's final roll of the dice. Nathan Dyer off. Fourteen minutes left.

Harry Kane has been electric since coming on and he almost adds a third, shooting left-footed but Schmeichel makes a fine low save. Leicester having the ball but Spurs continue to threaten. Another change for Tottenham, as Chadli is replaced by Josh Onomah.

Dele Alli was due to come on for Spurs but that second goal has postponed that move at least, with Mauricio Pochettino happy to keep things how they are. Bar a brief flurry of pressure at the start of the second half, Leicester have been woeful in this game. Ulloa has an opening as I right that, but can't make contact with Albrighton's cross.

Goal: Leicester 0-2 Tottenham (Nacer Chadli)

I am tempted to say that is game over. Son plays a delightful through pass to Chadli who shoots first time under Schmeichel and doubles Spurs' lead. Baring an unlikely recovery, Tottenham will face Colchester in the fourth round.

Marc Albrighton on for Danny Simpson for Leicester. Second change so one of Vardy or Mahrez will not be required.

Best move of the game and again Spurs should be two up. Eriksen and Son combine and Kane is fed, but Schmeichel saves at the near post.

Tottenham earlier really should put themselves out of sight when Lamela nicked the ball off Chilwell and with players either side of him he inexplicably played the ball down the middle and straight through to Schmeichel. Kane on for Lamela.

Harry Kane being given a going over by the Tottenham coaching team and he looks like he will get 30 minutes. Leicester will respond you must think.

My colleague George Flood is adamant he is covering the poorer of the two FA Cup ties between Liverpool and Exeter. You can make your own mind up, with the second half at Anfield set to get under way here.

Leicester belatedly threaten as Gray forces Vorm is a full-length save and when the ball comes out to Dyer who can't get good contact on the ball and it goes behind. Better from the home side but need more to forced their way back into this game.

David Pleat is complementing the quality of his half-time pie but is bemoaning the bout of indigestion he is currently suffering from. Better than the start of this second half, which has begun like the first - turgid.

Shinji Okazaki on for Danny Drinkwater for Leicester at half time. Vardy and Mahrez remain on the bench, for now. It really can only get better for the hosts. Tottenham unchanged as the second half gets under way.

Half time: Leicester City 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Thank goodness for the traction engine of a right possessed by Heung-Min Son, otherwise we would be considering a horrible first half of FA Cup football. It has been ugly but the South Korean has Spurs ahead with a fine effort after 40 minutes. Leicester have offered almost nothing forward and surely Vardy and Mahrez can't be far away.

Great cross fro Kyle Walker and he almost picked out nacer Chadli but the ball somehow evades the Belgian.

Opportunity for Leicester, who through Gray probe the left-hand side and his deflected cross causes confusion and it takes a clearance from Wimmer to prevent any further danger.

Goal: Leicester 0-1 Tottenham (Heung-min Son]

A goal out of absolutely nothing and it illuminates a horrid first 40 minutes. Lamela and Eriksen are both involved before the ball is fed to the South Korean who takes on Chilwell and unleashes a fine effort which flies beyond Schmeichel.

Probably the best chance of the games comes to Tottenham. Ben Davies crosses from the left and Lamela meets it on the run but can't control his header and Leicester survive.

Ben Davies continues his personal crusade towards scoring his first goal of the season with another shot, which bounces dismally wide.

A shot on target after 28 minutes. Gokhan Inler takes aim after Bne Chigwell won a free-kick on the edge of the box, but Vorm makes an easy save.

No goals at the King Power Stadium but we do have an opening goal of the night at Anfield where Joe Allen has Liverpool ahead against Exeter.

Latest effort from Tottenham comes via Ben Davies lashes the ball over the bar. Horrible effort.

Ben Davies becomes the first play to be booked after he is turned inside out by Nathan Dyer. The free-kick doesn't come to anything though as Spurs clear.

The final FA Cup third round replay between Liverpool and Exeter is under at Anfield. Live coverage via our live blog can be found here.

Mauricio Pochettino clearly frustrated by what he has seen of Tottenham in this opening 14 minutes, jumping up and down on the touchline. He will have been encouraged by their most recent attack after a sustained period of possession, as Christian Eriksen shot wide after Nacver Chadli broke in behind. Better, after a slow start to the tie.

Spurs make a foray into the Leicester half for the first half and they almost create an opening, as Walker crosses low and it picks out his opposite full-back Ben Davies but Simpson gets the ball away.

Half an opening for Leicester as Bentaleb's pass across the back four is cut out by Danny Drinkwater but his blocked challenge runs through to Vorm who clears.

Bit of moisture on the surface of the King Power Stadium, so with both sets of players yet to adapt to the conditions a few passes have gone astray - most of them over-hit. Tottenham have shown nothing as an attacking force in the opening seven minutes.

Eric Dier gives the ball away to Demarai Gray and though Tottenham survive the attack, Erik Lamela concedes a free-kick around 255 yards from goal. Gray curls on to the back post and Vorm comes and makes an easy save.

Under way at the King Power Stadium.

Teams out at the King Power Stadium and we're almost ready to go. We play to a finish tonight so strap in, we could be here a while.

Mauricio Pochettino on BBC One: "I am not concerned [at having not yet beaten Leicester] it is always tough against a team that competes with us. They have a very strong squad and it is always difficult when you come from a busy period and we play another game. We have a strong squad and a lots of players and we need to share the minutes and it is a good opportunity today."

Some additional team news from Leicester, where Danny Simpson replaces Ritchie de Laet at right back. Straight swap so no particular alarms for the Foxes.

Claudio Ranieri on BBC One: "You know when you play against big teams and big players you know they can invent something suddenly and we have to stay very attentive."

Four days on from that cup stalemate Leicester returned to Tottenham and via a Robert Huth header grabbed a surprise win at White Hart lane. The Foxes are joint top of the league with Arsenal but clearly their eye in on the Champions League, not least the title. Tottenham have similar ambitions but they too have sacrificed their cup ambitions tonight.

There has been plenty of calls for the FA Cup to be a pathway into the Champions League, and you wonder how much tonight's teams might differ if their was the carrot of a European place come the final in May. The motivation of winning a major trophy is seemingly not great enough for either side tonight.

It might have been 10 days ago, but you would be forgiven for having allowed the first game at White Hart Lane to slip your mind. Harry Kane scored a controversial penalty to grab a 2-2 draw, and for a recap on the game go here for our minute-by-minute coverage.

For those interested in keeping abreast of both of tonight's FA Cup ties, we have live coverage of Liverpool vs Exeter City from Anfield here. Jurgen Klopp has as expected rung the changes again with a host of youth players given the chance to make amends for the draw in the first game. It is a nice for multiple tabs, I would advise.

So just the seven changes across both sides for this third round replay. The victors face League One opposition in the form of Colchester United away from home so there is a real carrot for tonight's winner. To be frank there are no real surprises from either team with Premier League priorities for both. Spurs of course have the Europa League re-starting next month and need as much fuel in the engine as possible when having to fight on potentially three fronts.

Leicester make nine changes from the draw with Aston Villa for third third round replay. Among the players to drop out include Jamie Vardy and Rihad Mahrez, while Leonardo Ulloa and Lloyd Dyer both start.

For Spurs, they make eight alterations from the thrashing of Sunderland. Dele Alli and Harry Kane are both left on the bench, with Nacer Chadli and Heung-min Son coming in. Kyle Walker captains the side.


Leicester: Schmeichel, De Laet, Wasilewski, Benalouane, Chilwell; Dyer, King, Inler, Drinkwater, Gray; Ulloa

Tottenham: Vorm, Walker, Dier, Wimmer, Davies; Carroll, Bentaleb; Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli; Son.

One player who does not have a chance of getting a look in tonight is Andrej Kramarić, who has joined Hoffenheim on loan until the end of the season. The Croatian has not made a single Premier League start this term.

A familiar face to both these clubs will be leading BBC's coverage of the game, but he has struggled to get in at the King Power Stadium....

Team news should be with us in the next few minutes but in the mean time let's have a look at how we expect both sides will line up.

Claudio Ranieri is expected to hand a full home debut for new signing Demarai Gray amid a host of changes. Matty James, Ritchie de Laet, Andy King and Leonardo Ulloa are all likely to feature too.

Tottenham will also ring the alterations, with Nabil Bentaleb bidding for a first start of the season after Mauricio Pochettino clarified his future. Andros Townsend has impressed for the Under-21s and could feature while Michel Vorm will return in goal.

The old terrace chant "can we play you every week" has come true for both Leicester City and Tottenham, who meet at the King Power Stadium tonight for the third time in 10 days in order to determine who will face Colchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The pair played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane a week last Sunday, before Robert Huth header settled the Premier League meeting a week ago. Tonight battle line will be drawn again with two second string sides expected, though hopefully no less excitement. Team news ahead of Leicester vs Tottenham is on the way.
