Has to be better! That’s far too comfortable for Lloris, who should have been tested more there by Mahrez, who was teed up with a good sight of goal, just off to the right, by Diabate! Leicester are certainly threatening again, though!

67 minsminute by minute

Tottenham are guaranteed a top-four finish for the third consecutive Premier League season – it’s the first time they’ve had three top-flight finishes in 4th or higher since a run of five campaigns between 1959-60 and 1963-64.

65 minsminute by minute

GREAT SAVE! Iheanacho denied a second as Lloris gets down very well to his left to parry the forward’s well-struck effort from 12 yards! Mahrez did well to tee him up there, and then just fails to get onto the rebound as Lloris is able to recover and snatch it up.

63 minsminute by minute

This has been a sensational watch! It remains incredibly open at Wembley, in front of what is an absolutely deafening atmosphere! Seven goals in it already, and it would be senseless to bet against more!

TURNAROUND COMPLETE! A top-three finish beckons now for Spurs as from 3-1 down, they lead 4-3! It’s a third goal in 10 minutes and a second for Lamela, who again has a simple finish from six yards on the end of a low cross from Walker-Peters! A horrible defensive touch from Gray in the build-up made that all possible.

Wanyama picks up the first booking of the match for a cynical tug of the shirt of Iheanacho to prevent the forward from breaking quickly.

53 minsminute by minute

SPURS ARE LEVEL! From 3-1 down just five minutes ago, Tottenham have quite incredibly restored parity! It’s a head in hands moment for Fuchs who inadvertently turned Lamela’s deflected strike in at the near post, as he simply couldn’t react quick enough to get out of the way!

51 minsminute by minute

What a start to the second half this has been! It’s a showcase for the Premier League on the final day of the season, and both teams deserve plenty of credit for coming into it with this sort of appetite, despite their being nothing really on the line.

49 minsminute by minute

SPURS BACK WITHIN ONE AGAIN! In his 25th Premier League appearance of the season, Lamela finally has his first goal! It’s a simple finish from close range on the end of Walker-Peters’ low cross, following a stunning passage of play from Spurs! Game on!

49 minsminute by minute

It’s not been a good afternoon from Walker-Peters, but perhaps this assist will boost his confidence.

47 minsminute by minute

THAT’S A STUNNING HIT! ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Iheanacho pounces on a poor defensive header from Dier and then fends off a challenge from Wanyama, before guiding a laser beam into the top corner from 25 yards! He smashed that into the back of the net on a rope! Lloris couldn’t get anywhere near it!

46 minsminute by minute

Back underway at Wembley!

Spurs’ pursuit of a third successive top-three finish is under threat as Leicester lead through 45 minute in Tottenham’s Wembley farewell, through goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. Harry Kane has the goal for Spurs, and is now one shy of hitting 30 for the first time in a Premier League campaign.

HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-2 LEICESTER CITY.

45 minsminute by minute

There will be two minutes added on at the end of this first half.

43 minsminute by minute

Leicester remain wonderfully positive in possession. They’re so keen to get the ball forward as quick as possible when they win it back, which has continuously kept the Spurs defence on its toes in this first half. The hosts can’t lose their focus for even a second, or they will be punished.

Anticipation building as we enter the final five minutes of the first half, with Spurs pushing on here in search of an equaliser. The hosts have upped the tempo, showing plenty more urgency, but so far Leicester are finding a way to cope, blocking their way through.

39 minsminute by minute

Kane has scored 10 Premier League goals against Leicester, more than against any other side.

37 minsminute by minute

SCRAMBLED BEHIND! Much better from Spurs and who else to carve out that chance but Eriksen, their assists leader this season? The Dane’s delicious cross proves a handful for Jakupovic who can’t clear the threat, spilling it back into the danger area, but Leicester manage to scramble it behind with Kane lurking!

35 minsminute by minute

Leicester continuing to do well here in keeping the ball, though the bulk of this spell in possession has come in midfield. Spurs are struggling to win it back, and they’ve been unable to keep it when they do, with the Foxes pressing quickly to stifle the hosts’ attempts to move forward.

33 minsminute by minute

Spurs’ possession dominance has faded over the last five minutes as they’ve struggled to keep the ball, with Leicester putting in an excellent showing in midfield – and all over the pitch, for that matter. The visitors certainly appear to want it more today, with motivation perhaps a bit of an issue for Pochettino’s side.

31 minsminute by minute

In news from elsewhere, Liverpool have taken a 1-0 lead over Brighton and it’s Salah who has scored it. That all but eliminates the chance for Kane to win the golden boot, while Spurs would drop to fourth should that result hold and they fail to turn things around here.
