Tottenham Hotspur recorded a 4-2 win over Leicester City in their final Premier League game of the season this evening, with Harry Kane and Gareth Bale stealing the show.

Let’s take a look at the five things we learned:

Golden Boot and Playmaker Award: Harry Kane now ends the season with the most goals and assists in the Premier League, an extremely impressive and rare achievement. He nudged ahead of Salah in the former race with a goal today against the Foxes. The perfect way to say goodbye?

Final Farewell: That brings us on to our next point. It may be a case of overanalysing but Kane’s post-match reactions with his teammates definitely felt like goodbyes. The hug with Dele and Sonny especially caught the eye. We can only hope for at least one more season with the main man.

End of Bale Loan: Gareth Bale ended his loan move with a brace off the bench, showcasing exactly why Spurs took the chance on him in the first place. The Welshman will now prepare for the Euros but, in my opinion, Spurs should move heaven and Earth to get him back next season.

Europa Conference League: Spurs pipped Arsenal in the ‘race’ for the final European football spot this evening, coming in seventh and qualifying for the Europa Conference League. I’m not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing but time will tell.

No Champions League for Leicester: The FA Cup secured and no Champions League football next season. Perhaps Tottenham have given themselves the best chance of luring Brendan Rodgers over with the win over Leicester today…
