Denmark international Christian Eriksen scored his sixth Premier League goal of the season to secure three points for the hosts.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher explained why Leicester have a big advantage in the Premier League title race.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “The problem for Spurs is Leicester’s toughest fixtues are right at the end of the season.

“If they were level pegging that would be fantastic.

“They could do with the Man Utd or Chelsea games being in the middle.

“In those last three games, if Leicester still have a five-point lead, it is a massive lead.”

Tottenham have won eight of their last 10 Premier League games.
