Kane bags brace as Spurs seal 3rd with thrilling win over Leicester

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that Manchester City and Manchester United are now on a different level to his side, as he saluted their third place finish in the Premier League.

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.

Two minutes after Iheanacho's effort, Lamela got his first league goal since August 2016 when he tapped home from Kyle Walker-Peters' low cross at the end of a neat move.

Two goals from Erik Lamela (okay, one was given as a Christian Fuchs own goal, but we're feeling charitable) put Tottenham level on the day, but they needed a win to secure third place with Liverpool beating Brighton easily. 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. Lloris produced another fine save to deny Iheanacho and the 2016 champions leveled in the 73rd when Vardy got in behind the defense and smashed high into the roof of the net from an acute angle. Vardy controlled in the box and an onrushing Mahrez slammed home to make it 2-1. Harry Maguire then had a shot which he scuffed just wide as the insane game was end-to-end.

The excitement continued two minutes after the break when Iheanacho held off Victor Wanyama's challenge, strode forward and rifled an unstoppable 25-yard effort into the top-right corner.

There was absolutely nothing Lloris could do about Iheanacho's stunning strike that did extend Leicester's lead two minutes after the restart.

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.

Kane, though, had the final say and ended the campaign on 30 league goals, curling the ball into the far corner.

Game over? No. Harry Kane had other ideas.
