Tottenham 5-4 Leicester City: Wild win for Spurs

Monday, 14 May, 2018

Spurs have already confirmed Champions League football next season, while Leicester will be looking to overtake Everton into eighth.

The Daily Mail have crunched the numbers and reported that the north London outfit would pocket the fourth highest sum of broadcasting revenue, due to 25 of their 38 Premier League matches being shown live on Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Spurs have been playing at the national stadium while White Hart Lane is being rebuilt, something that was expected to count against them this season. A win today would guarantee a top three Premier League finish. Leicester City exploited Spurs' midfield on several occasions.

Pochettino was forced into an early reshuffle after Jan Vertonghen pulled up with a calf problem in the warmup, which didn't help, yet the Foxes did what they do best and raced into a half time 2-1 lead.

Tottenham will head into the match against Leicester on the back of a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United at the Wembley Stadium in the league. Leicester then levelled through Jamie Vardy before Kane had the final say in the 76th minute. "Another is what we are doing to create players, like in the case of Harry Kane, Dele Alli", he said. Moments after Danny Rose was denied a penalty from a challenge from Silva, Mahrez - who had just missed a great chance - slipped in Vardy to smash home Leicester's equaliser for his 20th league goal of the campaign.

Kane capped the thrilling nine-goal game with the victor in the 76-minute.

Leicester City, on the other hand, have played quite well under Claude Puel and will try to cap off a relatively good season on a positive note, with a win against Tottenham on Sunday.

But instead, they have overcome a "Wembley hoodoo" to post a strong Premier League record there, losing only twice going into their final game against Leicester on Sunday. With a purposeful Harry Kane in tow though, and Leicester going through one of the worst patch of form in all of Premier League, the hosts should have enough in the tank to get all three points. It was a showing that promised there is plenty more in the locker from the former PSG man and supporters have every right to be excited at what Moura can bring in a full campaign in the capital.
