Pochettino once again refused to be drawn on whether he will remain at Spurs' helm next season, after his side's 5-4 win over Leicester at Wembley sealed a third-place Premier League finish.

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

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 had trailed 3-1 at one stage but clawed their way back as they said goodbye to their temporary Wembley home in fine style.

Two goals from Erik Lamela (okay, one was given as a Christian Fuchs own goal, but we're feeling charitable) put Tottenham level on the day, but they needed a win to secure third place with Liverpool beating Brighton easily.

The Leicester forward was unmarked to head Riyad Mahrez's fourth-minute free-kick into the far corner.

It was all-square in the 53rd minute when Lamela's shot went in off Fuchs for an own goal and the comeback was complete seven minutes later with a carbon copy of Lamela's first - the Argentinian converting another Walker-Peters cross from close range. Lucas Moura won the ball high up the pitch and released Kane, who raced in on goal and shot past Eldin Jakupovic at the near post.

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.

- Harry Kane has scored more goals in all competitions versus Leicester City than against any other side in his career (13).

Kane, though, had the final say and ended the campaign on 30 league goals, curling the ball into the far corner.
