Tottenham Hotspurs struck five times to defeated Leicester City 5-4 in a nine-goal thriller on the final day of the Premier League on Sunday afternoon at Wembley Stadium and Super Eagles’ Kelechi Iheanacho was on target in the goal harvest.
England striker Harry Kane cancelled out Jamie Vardy’s early opener, but goals from Riyad Mahrez and Kelechi Iheanacho had the Foxes 3-1 ahead two minutes after the break.
Lamela inspired the fightback by twice finishing from Kyle Walker-Peters assists, and it was the Argentine’s strike that forced an own goal from Christian Fuchs to put Spurs in front by the hour mark.
All the focus was on whether Kane could catch leading scorer Mohamed Salah, but it was his England team-mate Vardy who got in on the action first to head Mahrez’s fourth-minute free-kick into the far corner for his 19th league goal of the campaign.
It took just three minutes for Kane to make his mark, though, as Lucas Moura won the ball high up the pitch and released his team-mate, who raced in on goal and fired past Eldin Jakupovic at the near post.
Leicester, though, had not come for a party and regained the lead in the 16th minute when Mahrez lashed home from the edge of the area after Victor Wanyama was dispossessed.
It was a good job Spurs had already booked their top-four spot as they were second best and only a brilliant stop from Hugo Lloris kept the deficit at one as the France international produced a fine one-handed save to keep out Demarai Gray’s effort.
