Striker Harry Kane thundered a header past Fraser Forster to give Mauricio Pochettino’s side the lead seven minutes after the break, and Spurs task became slightly easier when Nathan Redmond was harshly sent off for bringing down Alli.
Kane missed the resulting penalty, but late goals from Son Heung-min and Alli secured a tenth win of the season for Tottenham, who remain in fifth but are now just a point behind North London rivals Arsenal in fourth.
