22min: Cracking cup tie this. Spurs attempt to hit back but Eriksen’s strike from a Son Heung-min cut-back is well claimed by Schmeichel.

19min: Correction. Were on top! Demarai Gray marks his Leicester debut with an assist, as his near post corner is headed across goal by Marcin Wasilewski into the bottom corner. Poor marking by Toby Alderweireld but Leicester are level.

17min: Schmeichel hasn’t made the best of starts in goal for Leicester as the keeper now nervously punches away Eriksen’s near post free-kick. Spurs still on top.

15min: First yellow card of the game and it’s a no brainer as Marcin Wasilweski wipes out Danny Rose on the corner of the box with a sliding challenge – and just for good measure takes out his team-mate Ritchie de Laet too!

12min: That goal has got Spurs flowing. Leicester can’t get the ball now as the hosts ping the ball around with ease. No Harry Kane no problem it appears right now.

9min: But Spurs draw first blood. Josh Onomah picks out Nacer Chadli with a neat pass into the box and while the Belgian’s shot across goal is saved by Kasper Schmeichel, his parry is straight into the path of Christian Eriksen who buries the rebound into the bottom corner.

6min: Michel Vorm ha struggled in the few Tottenham appearances he has made for the club so far in goal, and his team-mate Danny Rose isn’t doing the best job of easing any nerves the Dutch keeper may have.

The full-back offers him a slightly underhit back pass but Vorm plays it safe by clearing to the stands under pressure from Leonardo Ulloa. A thumbs up between the Spurs pair ensure the incident is quickly put behind them.

3min: Two much changed teams then, and it’s Tottenham looking the sharper team so far in the early moments.

It’s Leicester City with the first shot though as new signing Demarai Gray drags wide from 25 yards.

Kieran Gill at White Hart Lane: So the teams are out, and Tottenham and Leicester have made eight changes apiece. Hurray for the magic of the FA Cup!

Still, it’s not all bad. The silver lining about Premier League clubs not taking this competition seriously is that it gives young English talent their chance to impress.
