Spurs beating Manchester City to Jorginho would be incredible statement of intent

Spurs beating Manchester City to Jorginho would be incredible statement of intent

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that Manchester City and Manchester United are now on a different level to his side, as he saluted their third place finish in the Premier League.

The game got off to a rapid start as Vardy flicked home a header at the near post from Mahrez's flawless free kick.

It was Kane's England teammate, Jamie Vardy, who first got on the scoresheet.

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.

Kelechi Iheanacho's stunner put Leicester two clear just after halftime but it provoked a furious Spurs response in which Erik Lamela struck twice either side of an own goal by Christian Fuchs who deflected Lamela's shot in off his knee.

Harry Kane launches an unlikely bid to win a third-consecutive golden boot when Tottenham welcome Leicester to Wembley. Lucas Moura caught Danny Simpson dawdling in possession and Kane picked up the loose ball to race free and place a left-foot shot past Eldin Jakupovic. Until Vardy scored his second to level the tie. 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.

There was absolutely nothing Lloris could do about Iheanacho's stunning strike that did extend Leicester's lead two minutes after the restart.

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.

Harry Kane delivered the final goal of Tottenham's campaign, curling in his 30th of the league season to complete an exciting afternoon of football.

Leicester regained the lead in the 16th minute when Mahrez lashed home from the edge of the area after Victor Wanyama was dispossessed.

"We should have won after scoring four times away, particularly after leading 3-1", he said in quotes reported on Leicester's official Twitter account.
