Tottenham overcame Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley to keep themselves in the title race. With City winning midweek and Liverpool getting the better of Bournemouth yesterday, Tottenham had to win to stay in touching distance from the front two.
The game, however, was far from straightforward as Leicester gave a really good account of themselves. The away side created a lot of chances particularly in the second half but their finishing was pretty poor.
Spurs opened the scoring through a header from Davinson Sanchez, before Christian Eriksen doubled the lead in the second half with a fantastic strike. The Foxes then pulled a goal back and were chasing an equaliser.
With the away side chasing the game, Son capitalised on the space to run through on goal and finish expertly past Kasper Schmeichel.
Harry Kane who is expected to be back in action for Spurs’ next Premier League game against Burnley, took to social media to express his delight at the result.
Here’s how Kane reacted to the win:
