Tottenham Concludes Season In Stunning Fashion Against Leicester City

They could finish third if they beat Leicester on Sunday in their final league game at the national stadium and Pochettino will enjoy their success before plotting a Premier League title challenge for 2018-19. Any Spurs fan who wouldn't have taken that in a season where the club were forced to play at a Wembley is a fool.

Kane's two goals took his tally to 30 for the season but the striker fell two goals short in his pursuit of a third successive Golden Boot that was clinched by Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

It was all-square in the 53rd minute when Lamela's shot went in off Fuchs for an own goal and the comeback was complete seven minutes later with a carbon copy of Lamela's first - the Argentinian converting another Walker-Peters cross from close range. Lucas Moura caught Danny Simpson dawdling in possession and Kane picked up the loose ball to race free and place a left-foot shot past Eldin Jakupovic. @HKane cuts inside his man and curls a attractive effort into the far corner to score his second of the afternoon! Iheanacho wormed his way into the area, Adrien Silva prodded the ball towards Vardy and, although he was denied, Mahrez was on hand to smash home from 10 yards.

'This season also saw us match our longest unbeaten run in the Premier League - a run of 14 games - and finish top of our Champions League group that included this year's finalists and current holders, Real Madrid'.

Leicester's lead was at two for just two minutes.




Vardy then made it 4-4 as Mahrez timed his pass perfectly and Vardy smashed home his 20th goal of the PL season in style.

Leicester and Tottenham contributed to a game which matched the all-time record for goals scored in a single match at Wembley, in a topsy-turvy game which did not appear to have little meaning for either side.

- Harry Kane is the first Spurs player to score 40+ goals in a season in all competitions since Clive Allen in 1986-87 (49).

Jamie Vardy scored twice, as did Harry Kane and Erik Lamela as Leicester threw away a 3-1 lead.
