Tottenham Hotspur carved out a 3-1 win over Leicester City on Sunday night on their 26th match of the 2018/19 English Premier League.
This was Tottenham's fourth victory in a row despite Kane's absence and this run has allowed them open up a 10 point lead over fifth place Chelsea.
The Spurs went ahead through Sanchez by meeting Eriksen's whipped cross with a diving header in the 33rd minute, although Leicester's players complained he was in an offside position.
The Foxes missed the chance to equalise on the hour mark when substitute Jamie Vardy's penalty - his first touch after coming on - was pushed away by Hugo Lloris after Jan Vertonghen was adjudged to have fouled James Maddison in the box.
Tottenham doubled their lead three minutes later as Eriksen collected the ball on the edge of the penalty area and unleashed a fierce shot past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Vardy made up for his earlier miss by tapping in from close range 14 minutes from the final whistle after a well worked move allowed Ricardo Pereira to drill in a cross from the right.
Tottenham struggled to shake off their visitors and were left frustrated as Son's penalty claims received a yellow card for simulation under Harry Maguire's tackle.
After a long period of Leicester pressure, Son settled nerves of the home supporters by slotting in Tottenham's third with a solo run from the halfway line.
Spurs had to weather a late Foxes fightback to remain third in the table, but reduced the deficit to leaders Liverpool - who beat Bournemouth on Saturday - to five points.
Tottenham have won 20 league games this season - only in their top-flight title winning campaign of 1960-61 have they ever won more after their first 26 matches of a season.
Meanwhile, the defeat for the Foxes means Claude Puel's men have now picked up just a single point from their past five games, with the pressure on the Frenchman increasing as they stay in 12th place.
After the match Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said, "I feel very proud. I think it was a fantastic result.
"It was a tough game and Leicester played so well. You always have to fight to the end for big things.
"We were a little bit lucky today and we deserved it because we fought. More times I need to congratulate my players because I thought they were fantastic."
