Kane fires Spurs into 3rd spot

Kane fires Spurs into 3rd spot

Kane's second goal of the game came in the 76th minute and Gascoigne produced a brilliant celebration when the camera panned to him in the stands.

After they finished third in the Premier League with a 5-4 win over Leicester on the final day, Pochettino says Spurs need to review their progress during his four-year tenure and create a "different idea" going into their new 61,000-seater stadium next term.

The manner of the game may have appeased supporters - they were treated to nine goals after all - but Pochettino will not have been happy at Vardy's impact.

With fifteen minutes to play, Kane fired a right footed shot neatly into the corner to give his side a stunning lead in their final league game at Wembley and wrap up three all three points for Spurs, leaving them on 77 points in third place. "I don't know if the club will agree with me or not but we are going to talk to create the new project or what I think we need to do together again to try and improve". Vardy was in the mood, his jet-heeled pace stretching a patched-up Tottenham backline while some of his touches boasted finesse of the highest order.

Leicester did not let their heads slip after the equaliser and found themselves regaining the lead just ten minutes later, when Riyad Mahrez found the bottom corner with a lovely finish from the edge of the box. He motored into it and beat the goalkeeper with a low shot inside the near post.

Leicester were looking lively from the off with Jamie Vardy nodding his side ahead on just four minutes. Walker-Peters was the nearest marker to Vardy when Mahrez whipped the ball in but he was nowhere near close enough.


Only a brilliant stop from Hugo Lloris kept the deficit at one as the France goalkeeper produced a fine one-handed save to keep out Demarai Gray's effort. It was a super weighted pass from Iheanacho and a phenomenal finish from the England striker as he powered the ball into the top-left corner of the net. Game over? Not at all.

By the 52nd minute Spurs were level.

An own goal from Christian Fuchs in the 53rd minute and a second for Lamela on the hour mark changed things around and put Spurs 4-3 up.

Spurs scored a second goal in a matter of minutes to make it 3-3.

While Kane showed a return to his razor-sharp best, Mahrez and Vardy revived memories of Leicester's unlikely march to the title in 2016, although whether or not they will be linking up in blue shirts next season remains a doubt. Kane created the victor for himself with a move that sent the Leicester substitute, Hamza Choudhury off towards Brent Cross.
