VIDEO: Tottenham Hotspur 5 – 4 Leicester City [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18

Tottenham will leave Wembley on the back on a memorable victory, with Harry Kane and Erik Lamela earning a 5-4 win over Leicester City.

Harry Kane and Erik Lamela each scored twice as Tottenham beat Leicester City 5-4 to sign off from their stay at Wembley with a pulsating end-of-season Premier League classic.
England striker Kane cancelled out Jamie Vardy’s early opener, but goals from Riyad Mahrez and Kelechi Iheanacho had the Foxes 3-1 ahead two minutes after the break.
Lamela inspired the fightback by twice finishing from Kyle Walker-Peters assists, and it was the Argentine’s strike that forced an own goal from Christian Fuchs to put Spurs in front by the hour mark.
Vardy’s expertly taken second appeared to have earned Leicester a remarkable point, but England team-mate Kane had the last word to seal a scarcely believable three points with his 11th Premier League goal against Leicester – more than any other opponent he has faced.
The dramatic victory means Spurs, who were already assured of a Champions League berth next season, finish third ahead of Liverpool, but Kane’s unlikely pursuit of Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot fell short despite him scoring 30 Premier League goals in a season for the first time.
It remains to be seen if boss Mauricio Pochettino and key centre-back Toby Alderweireld, who have both been the subject of speculation surrounding their futures, will remain with Spurs when they leave the national stadium to play at their new ground on the site of the old White Hart Lane next season.
Claude Puel’s own tenure at Leicester is also likely to face further scrutiny, the Foxes finishing the season ninth after ending the league campaign with just one win in seven – albeit that coming against Arsenal in midweek.
