Tottenham Hotspur 5-4 Leicester City: Three things we learned

I think all that we achieved until today is fantastic but it will be so important to create again.

Tottenham, who have finished the season as London's top team for the first time in 23 years, will begin life in their new 62 000-seater stadium as a Champions League club again.

"I think Daniel is going to listen, of course".

"I think sometimes of course these two players can play together", said Puel.

"But you need to be fearless in this kind of situation, in our club with our unbelievable fans, and take risks".

The goal against Tottenham was Iheanacho's third Premier League goal in 21 games since he joined Leicester City in the summer of 2017. "It is not in my hands, it depends on my boss". Until today, . We need to create dreams that are possible to achieve.

"We can not think we are the cleverest people in the world winning trophies on small money", he said.

Third place was sealed after Harry Kane and Erik Lamela both scored twice while Christian Fuchs sored an own goal. "Don't take this in [a] negative way, this always happens at the end of the season at all clubs, the manager speaks to owners, sporting director and chief executive to analyse the season and thinking how to improve".

It took just three minutes for Kane to make his mark, though.

Kane has 28 goals this campaign, three behind Mohamed Salah on 31, but the Englishman did score seven goals in the final two games last season to edge past Romelu Lukaku, including four in a 6-1 thrashing away at the Foxes.

Leicester powered into a 3-1 lead at Wembley, thanks to goals from Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Kelechi Iheanacho.

After a poor header from Eric Dier, Iheanacho picked the ball up, shrugged off Wanyama's challenge and launched an effort from 25 yards (meters) that rifled into the top corner.

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

And Tottenham were level in the 53rd minute when Lamela's deflected effort found the net, before Lamela completed the Spurs comeback by tapping home after combining with Kyle Walker-Peters.

Kane, though, had the final say by curling the ball into the far corner.
