Kane fires Spurs into 3rd spot

Tottenham Hotspur won a nine-goal thriller at Wembley on Sunday, as Mauricio Pochettino's men secured a place in the Premier League's top four for the third-straight season.

- This is the eighth occasion Tottenham have come from two goals down to win a Premier League game and the first since March 2014 against Southampton (3-2).

Tottenham have enjoyed their time at Wembley this season, by and large, but it was a insane final game today and Spurs fans were not happy with the display of Eric Dier at centre-back.

Liverpool superstar Salah is on course to win the Golden Boot this season, with the Egypt worldwide netting 31 league goals for the Reds.

Kelechi Iheanacho's stunner put Leicester two clear just after halftime but it provoked a furious Spurs response in which Erik Lamela struck twice either side of an own goal by Christian Fuchs who deflected Lamela's shot in off his knee. Until Vardy scored his second to level the tie.

Man City want Aguero and Sterling to stay, insists Pep Guardiola
But league rules state that for a player to receive a medal on the day, they need to have made a minimum of five appearances - with the exception being the reserve goalkeeper.


The Leicester forward was unmarked to head Riyad Mahrez's fourth-minute free-kick into the far corner. 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. We can not invest insane money. Demarai Gray looked close to extending the lead when he forced a fine save from Hugo Lloris after some superb football from Leicester.

- Tottenham's 5-4 victory over Leicester equals the most goals scored in a competitive club match at Wembley Stadium (Chelsea 5-4 Man City in the 1986 Full Members Cup Final).

His tally of 30 league goals is the highest of his career so far and he became only the seventh player in Europe's top five...

Kane has 28 goals this campaign, three behind Mohamed Salah on 31, but the Englishman did score seven goals in the final two games last season to edge past Romelu Lukaku, including four in a 6-1 thrashing away at the Foxes.

"Of course, I want to retain the boot but consistency is the most important thing for me, getting 25-plus goals in the Premier League season after season".
