Tottenham finished the season in style as our lads notched up a sensational 5-4 win against Leicester City at Wembley. Although the Foxes seemed to have the upper hand for a good majority of the game, Spurs made a brilliant comeback to secure 3 points.
The scoring was opened by Jamie Vardy, which was followed by Harry Kane within the first 10 minutes of the game. Although the playing field seemed level, Riyad Mahrez put Leicester in the driver’s seat with a great shot. From there on, Leicester dominated the game and their lead was secured further with a goal from Kelechi Iheanacho.
However, a stunning goal from Erik Lamela followed and Spurs were back in the game with a bang. To further increase the pressure on Leicester, our players were looking for another goal but unfortunately for the Foxes, Christian Fuchs handed us what we wanted, via an own goal. Lamela then scored another goal and the match was nothing short of a nail-biter.
Vardy chipped in with another goal after the 70th minute but just like how the game started, Kane answered with a spectacular strike. This win ensured a third-place finish for us and our fans were overjoyed on Twitter. Here are some of the best reactions:
Goodbye Wembley… we’ve had some games there that I will never forget but I cannot wait to go home 💙 3rd place and not a single home game. I love you @SpursOfficial

Before Pochettino, Tottenham last finished in the top three (third, under Venables) in 1989-90. Poch has now done it three times in a row (third, second, third). And the last #THFC manager to achieve that was Bill Nicholson (third, first, third, second) between 1960 & 1963. #COYS

I never thought I would see a time when Tottenham will get automatic qualification to the UCL while Arsenal and Chelsea slug it out in Europa

People ask me why I support Tottenham. This is why. The lowest of lows mixed with the highest of highs. Spending £B's to buy trophies and being expected to win everything every year could never excite me. What a F thrill it is supporting our club, wouldn't change it for the world
