Tottenham Hotspur ended their season with a freaky 5-4 home win over Leicester City this afternoon, bringing the curtain down on another mostly successful campaign for Mauricio Pochettino.

However, a second-half collapse, conceding four goals in 27 minutes to lose 5-4, left them with only one win from their final seven games in the league.

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.

Lamela inspired the fightback by twice finishing from Kyle Walker-Peters assists, and it was the Argentine's strike that forced an own goal from Christian Fuchs to put Spurs in front by the hour mark. "We had to manage things better after our third goal". Lucas Moura won the ball high up the pitch and released Kane, who raced in on goal and shot past Eldin Jakupovic at the near post. 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.

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

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

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.

Vardy was unmarked to head Mahrez's fourth-minute free-kick into the far corner for his 19th league goal of the campaign.

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

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.

Jamie Vardy scored twice, as did Harry Kane and Erik Lamela as Leicester threw away a 3-1 lead.
