"To structure the club, I think Leicester know just two times in the first part of the Premier League in 18 years, this club need consistency and stability and with a lot of work to continue the development". Kane raced clear and slotted home to make it 1-1 as he tried to win the PL Golden Boot for the third-straight season.

An eighth-placed finish was on the cards for the Foxes after half-time, with Kelechi Iheanacho's fine finish giving them a 3-1 lead at Spurs, and a good chance of finishing above Everton in the league.

But Erik Lamela scored twice either side of having the shot that a luckless Christian Fuchs diverted into his own goal, before Harry Kane netted the victor after Vardy's second had levelled the score at 4-4.

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.

'I write this at a time when we have one remaining game and have already qualified for the Champions League for a record third successive year.

And Pochettino's side made no mistake as they ran out 5-4 winners in a insane game against Leicester City at Wembley. Third place was sealed after Harry Kane and Erik Lamela both scored twice while Christian Fuchs sored an own goal.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has insisted that his side should have beaten Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium after scoring four goals there.

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.

Game over? No. Harry Kane had other ideas.

Leicester countered and Vardy latched onto a long ball from Mahrez, and the England striker showed some excellent centre forward play before he rifled the ball into the top of the net for his 20th Premier League goal of the season.
