Harry Kane and Erik Lamela scored twice as Tottenham secured third place in the Premier League with a thrilling 5-4 win over Leicester at Wembley. Liverpool in CL Liverpool cruised back into the Champions League next season by easing past Brighton 4-0 on Sunday as Mohamed Salah set a new Premier League record of 32 goals in a 38- game season.

But Erik Lamela scored twice either side of having the shot that a luckless Christian Fuchs diverted into his own goal, before Harry Kane netted the victor after Vardy's second had levelled the score at 4-4.

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.

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. Kane raced clear and slotted home to make it 1-1 as he tried to win the PL Golden Boot for the third-straight season.

The sides went in level at the break and Leicester came out with their tales up and, two minutes into the second half, made it 3-1 when Iheanacho picked the ball up centrally, drove to the edge of the box and fired the ball into the top right corner past a helpless Lloris. 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. "It is a shame we saw a good game, a insane game".

Vardy was unmarked to head Mahrez's fourth-minute free-kick into the far corner for his 19th league goal of the campaign.

With the scores level at 4-4, Vardy slammed in an equaliser for Leicester after a deft pass by Mahrez.

- Harry Kane is the first Spurs player to score 40+ goals in a season in all competitions since Clive Allen in 1986-87 (49).

"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.
