Harry Kane hunts Foxes like posh toffs on horseback with hounds – and he has 16 goals in 14 games against Leicester to show for it.
As the England captain took Tottenham within touching distance of north London supremacy over Arsenal for the fourth consecutive year, Leicester’s tribute to Devon Loch gathered depressing momentum.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho did his former club Manchester United a huge favour by turning over their main rivals for a top-four finish.
And although Leicester peppered Hugo Lloris with 24 shots – the most by a visiting team at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium – it looks like Europa League football at the King Power now.
And inside six minutes, Rodgers was suffering at the hands of his nemesis again.
Heung-min Son sprang the offside trap and although Kasper Schmeichel appeared to have the Korean’s shot covered, the Foxes keeper was stranded by a telling deflection off James Justin.
Kane had strayed offside, and could have compromised Schmeichel’s view, but VAR official Stuart Attwell saw no reason to intervene.
But contain-and-destroy has its merits, and eight minutes before the break Tottenham executed a counter-attack perfectly to extend their lead.
From a cleared Youri Tielemans corner, Giovanni Lo Celso led the charge, Lucas Moura rolled an inviting pass into the channel and Kane swept his left-foot finish into the far corner.
Two minutes later, Spurs were disappearing over the horizon as the England captain was on target again.
Lucas Moura robbed Luke Thomas to lead another fast break and Kane teased Ryan Bennett before cutting inside and bending his shot beyond Schmeichel with panache.
And although Kane is not going to win the Golden Boot this year because of his injury lay-off in the New Year, 33 goals for club and country – 17 of them in the Premier League – is still a decent season’s work by any yardstick.
That honour is likely to go to 23-goal Jamie Vardy, who was out of luck this time.
But Kane has now scored more goals against Leicester than any other club.
