Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham beat Leicester City in nine-goal thriller at Wembley

Tottenham ended the season by winning a sensational nine-goal thriller against Leicester in their final Premier League game at Wembley.

The hosts trailed 1-0 after four minutes and 3-1 after 47 minutes but were pegged back to 4-4 in the second half 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, which takes him to 30 goals for the season for the first time.

Deal of the day

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 goals in 11 minutes, 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 who had the final say with his curling effort.

The win clinches third place for Tottenham in the table while Leicester stay ninth.
