Harry Kane scores victor as Tottenham edge nine-goal rollercoaster against Leicester

Top-four finish Pochettino's greatest achievement – Kane

Top-four finish Pochettino's greatest achievement – Kane

However, their lead lasted less than three minutes when Lucas Moura won the ball high up the field from Danny Simpson and fed in Harry Kane, who slotted the ball past Eldin Jakupović in the Leicester net.

They could finish third if they beat Leicester on Sunday in their final league game at the national stadium and Pochettino will enjoy their success before plotting a Premier League title challenge for 2018-19. Meanwhile, Manchester City became the first Premier League side to reach 100 points as the champions capped their memorable season in style thanks to a 1-0 win at Southampton.

Spurs have again qualified for the Champions League, and the club face a big summer given that they are moving into their new stadium, with fans hoping for major additions.

Spurs were caught cold in just the fourth minute when Vardy was allowed a free run to glance a header from Mahrez's teasing left-wing free-kick into the far corner. 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. We need to think our reality is different and our fans need to think and be happy and support us because we are not a club who will spend insane money.

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.

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.

- In contrast, the Foxes have lost after leading by two goals in the top-flight for the first time since October 2003 (3-4 v Wolves).

It was his 40th goal of the season, the most by a Spurs player since Clive Allen bagged 49 in the mid-1980s.

Kane, though, had the final say and ended the campaign on 30 league goals, curling the ball into the far corner.

- Since his Premier League debut in August 2014, Jamie Vardy has scored 26 goals against the big six sides - six more than any other player during this period (Sergio Aguero, 20).
