Pochettino's men found themselves 3-1 down early on the second half but a miraculous second half display saw them finish off the Premier League campaign in style.

And Pochettino's side made no mistake as they ran out 5-4 winners in a insane game against Leicester City at Wembley. Now it's about getting to 30 goals for the next two or three years. Leicester City exploited Spurs' midfield on several occasions. This run of results has thrown them out of contention for the final European slot and down to ninth spot. Mauricio Pochettino's squad managed to outscore Claude Puel's troops despite being forced to go with a makeshift lineup due to injury. It was to no avail as Harry Kane netted his second and Spurs' fifth with 15 minutes to play. He did manage to make a couple of good blocks and challenges and was perhaps unlucky to be on a side that let in so many.

Asked if he could guarantee whether he would be Tottenham manager next season, Pochettino's answer will not have been particularly reassuring to the club's fans. At that point, it felt as though they might still be a race for the Golden Boot.

"I think for me I'm contracted with Leicester and when I have a contract I respect my contract", said Puel.

Leicester are without Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), Robert Huth (ankle) and Matty James (Achilles).

Harry Maguire has been huge for Leicester, 2 goal preventing last ditch tackles.

"It's good, it's important because he's always available between the lines, behind the defenders, he has good movement behind". 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. "You're going to move to the stadium with unbelievable facilities, but it is not just about that". Helping to keep the scoreboard stationary, Eldin Jakupovic made his first league start of the season and delivered a series of impressive saves. I repeat my last press conference, today 100 per cent I feel I am here.

Tottenham Hotspur secured a third placed Premier League finish with their fantastic 5-4 defeat of Leicester City in the final game of the season at Wembley on Sunday.

All eyes on the prize. Expect Kane to be on the score sheet once again, with the striker running Salah close on the final day.

What a way to end a season.

"I still have three years on my contract".

Two minutes later, Lamela pulled one back as he tapped the ball in from close range and reduced the deficit to 3-2.
