Tottenham player ratings: Spurs beat Leicester at their own game

Danny Rose vows to fight for first-team football at Tottenham Hotspur Tottenham player ratings: Spurs beat Leicester at their own game

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. Leicester then levelled through Jamie Vardy before Kane had the final say in the 76th minute. Meanwhile, Manchester City became the first Premier League side to reach 100 points as the champions capped their memorable season in style thanks to a 1-0 win at Southampton. Lloris produced another fine save to deny Iheanacho and the 2016 champions leveled in the 73rd when Vardy got in behind the defense and smashed high into the roof of the net from an acute angle. Any Spurs fan who wouldn't have taken that in a season where the club were forced to play at a Wembley is a fool.

And Pochettino's side made no mistake as they ran out 5-4 winners in a insane game against Leicester City at Wembley.

After a poor header from Eric Dier, Iheanacho picked the ball up, shrugged off Wanyama's challenge and launched an effort from 25 yards (meters) that rifled into the top corner.

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.

- Harry Kane is the first Spurs player to score 40+ goals in a season in all competitions since Clive Allen in 1986-87 (49).

"It is insane to lose this game when we scored four goals away".

- Vardy has been on the losing side in nine Premier League games this season when he has scored, extending the record in a single campaign in the competition.
