Missed The Game? Kane Scores Twice As Tottenham Beat Leicester City 5 – 4
Tottenham ended the season by winning a sensational nine-goal thriller against Leicester to clinch third place in the Premier League.
The hosts trailed 3-1 after 47 minutes, scored three goals in 11 minutes to lead 4-3, only to be pegged back to 4-4 before Harry Kane curled in the winner in the 76th minute.
It was Kane’s second goal of the game, after he levelled following Jamie Vardy’s opener, and takes him to 30 Premier League goals for the season for the first time.
Spurs were 2-1 behind at half-time after Riyad Mahrez had added to Vardy’s early header and three minutes after the break Kelechi Iheanacho smashed into the top corner from distance to give Leicester a two-goal lead.
But Spurs responded with three quick-fire goals, two for Erik Lamela and one an own goal from Christian Fuchs.
In a remarkable second half, Vardy then drew Leicester level with his side’s fourth of the afternoon, smashing into the roof of the net after a trademark run in behind the defence.
However it was Vardy’s international team-mate Kane who had the final say with his effort from the edge of the penalty area.
The result sees Spurs take three points from their final Premier League game at Wembley while Leicester finish the season ninth.
