Full Time: Tottenham Hotspur 5-4 Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur finished the Premier League season in style by staging a brilliant comeback to beat Leicester City 5-4 at Wembley. It has been a season filled with ups and downs for us at a new ground but at the end of it, we have still managed to secure a berth for ourselves in next season’s Champions League.

The fact that we will get to play in our new stadium soon is really exciting but that is nothing compared to the adrenaline rush we experienced against Leicester. With that in mind, let’s take a look at how our players fared against the Foxes.

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris – 7/10

Despite the onslaught of goals from the visitors, Lloris put in a solid shift between the sticks. He denied efforts from Demarai Gray, Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Danny Rose – 7.5/10

Dealt with several challenges and worked hard to contain the Leicester attack.

Eric Dier – 5.5/10

Wasn’t the best from Dier today. He seemed like a fish out of the water in central defence but one cannot really blame him for that.

Toby Alderweireld – 6/10

Alderweireld tried his best but it was simply not his night. He is not the only one to be blamed for Leicester’s goals but he does have a significant share.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 8.5/10

One of our most reliable defenders of the night, Walker-Peters made some dangerous crosses while providing assists to set up both of Lamela’s goals.

Victor Wanyama – 6/10

Started off on a shaky note but improved as the game wore on.

Moussa Sissoko – 8/10

A solid show from the Frenchman who maintained fluidity and provided a solid channel to pass the ball to Tottenham’s attackers.

Lucas Moura – 8/10

The fact that the fans booed when Moura was taken off is enough to show how influential he was. The former PSG star was involved in 3 goals and put in a fantastic display to end this season.

Christian Eriksen – 7/10

Was deployed deeper than usual but that did not stop him from fuelling attacking runs.

Erik Lamela – 9.5/10

Arguably the most exciting player on the field, Lamela was a force to reckon with from the beginning. Scored two goals and provided an assist, which earned him a standing ovation from the crowd.

Harry Kane – 8/10

Scored a brace to end this season on a high.

Subs:

Dele Alli – 6/10

Worked hard to make things happen.

Davinson Sanchez – N/A

Not enough time to make an impact.

Heung-Min Son – N/A

Came on too late and did not have much to do.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
