Kane fires Spurs into 3rd spot

  • Harry Kane of Tottenham looks on ahead of The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round Replay match between Tottenham Hotspur and Rochdale

"Last season, we finished second but it is not enough because we didn't win the Premier League", the boss said.

The dramatic victory means Spurs, who were already assured of a Champions League berth next season, finish third ahead of Liverpool, but Kane's unlikely pursuit of Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot fell short despite him scoring 30 Premier League goals in a season for the first time.

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

A draw would have dropped Tottenham below Liverpool into fourth spot but Kane had the final say when he cut in from the left to curl a trademark effort past Leicester goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic. Until Vardy scored his second to level the tie. Harry Maguire then had a shot which he scuffed just wide as the insane game was end-to-end. Third place was sealed after Harry Kane and Erik Lamela both scored twice while Christian Fuchs sored an own goal.

The Racing back-up took the place of Dan Carter - the victim of a hamstring injury - on the bench just before kick-off . But Sexton responded with a penalty and Iribaren's fourth penalty was cancelled out by Nacewa's boot.

Leicester's lead was at two for just two minutes.

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.

"From the beginning it was tough [playing home games at Wembley]".

If Leicester City were trying to get their manager Claude Puel the sack after an indifferent end to the season then they made a fine effort of it after the interval.

Spurs booked a third successive year in Europe's elite club competition, in a season where they played "home games" at Wembley and all the other teams around them spent massively.

Leicester countered and Vardy latched onto a long ball from Mahrez, and the England striker showed some excellent centre forward play before he rifled the ball into the top of the net for his 20th Premier League goal of the season.

"It's insane to lose a game where you've scored four goals away", Puel added.
