The Foxes made two changes, with Ben Chilwell and Shinji Okazaki handed starts, while Spurs made four alterations, with Danny Rose, Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele and Moussa Sissoko all starting.
The hosts made a bright start, pinning the visitors back into their own half, with Wilfred Ndidi testing Hugo Lloris with a low drive.

Marc Albrighton played the ball into the area from the left flank and Jamie Vardy superbly lifted a right-footed volley up and over the stranded Hugo Lloris.
Home keeper Kasper Schmeichel ensured the lead stayed intact when he blocked a Moussa Sissoko shot, with Harry Maguire getting back to hack the loose ball away from the goal-line.
Schmeichel denied Dele Alli at the end of a quick counter-attack led by Christian Eriksen and City doubled their lead right on the stroke of half-time.
Riyad Mahrez was given time and space on the right and cut inside his marker before curling a left-foot shot into the far corner of the net.
Okazaki glanced a header over the top as the Foxes opened the second half well on top, while the visitors soon brought on Son Heung-Min to try and shake things up.
