All at Spurs deserve silverware: Pochettino

All at Spurs deserve silverware: Pochettino

The defending was shambolic and the England strikers on both sides were clinical as Tottenham Hotspur ended their stay at Wembley in thrilling style, edging a nine-goal thriller thanks to Harry Kane's 30th league goal of the season.

"Of course we are working to deliver what is best for the team".

There was absolutely nothing Lloris could do about Kelechi Iheanacho's strike that did extend Leicester's lead two minutes after the restart.

Just when Vardy thought his brace would be enough to snatch victory for Leicester, Kane resurfaced to reassert his authority as England's premier poacher.

However it was Vardy's global team-mate Kane who had the final say with his curling effort.

Kane jinked past a woefully ineffective Hamza Choudhury, then whipped the ball into the corner of the Leicester net for his second goal of the day.

But a goal from Riyad Mahrez arrived with 16 minutes on the clock and there was little sign of how the game would end as the Foxes went in 2-1 up at the break.

Spurs have had a good campaign in the Premier League this season, securing top-four finish to book their place in next season's Champions League, as well as providing a positive account of themselves in Europe.

Vardy then made it 4-4 in the 73rd minute, but Kane scored the victor three minutes later as it finished 5-4 to Spurs, who finish in third spot in the Premier League.

It was a good job Spurs had already booked their top-four spot as they were second best and only a brilliant stop from Hugo Lloris kept the deficit at one as the France worldwide produced a fine one-handed save to keep out Demarai Gray's effort.

Spurs looked headed for defeat, but an incredible three-goal salvo in 11 minutes turned the game in their favor. "Getting 30 goals is definitely the aim", he told reporters.

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. Until Vardy scored his second to level the tie.
