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. Third place was sealed after Harry Kane and Erik Lamela both scored twice while Christian Fuchs sored an own goal.

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

The excitement continued two minutes after the break when Iheanacho held off Victor Wanyama's challenge, strode forward and rifled an unstoppable 25-yard effort into the top-right corner. A poor defensive touch by Gray was pounced on by Walker-Peters, who once again kept his cool to pick out Lamela for the simple finish.

The drama was not finished there.

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

Tottenham goal machine Kane is just behind Salah on 28 goals, with one game remaining.


Mauricio Pochettino had just seen his team engage in some glorious end of season nonsense over the course of nine goals in their last home game at Wembley when the Tottenham Hotspur manager decided that it was time to deliver some home truths to his club. In the Champions League we filled Wembley and witnessed remarkable games against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

- In contrast, the Foxes have lost after leading by two goals in the top-flight for the first time since October 2003 (3-4 v Wolves).

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

His tally of 30 league goals is the highest of his career so far and he became only the seventh player in Europe's top five...

- Since his Premier League debut in August 2014, Jamie Vardy has scored 26 goals against the big six sides - six more than any other player during this period (Sergio Aguero, 20).

"It's insane to lose a game where you've scored four goals away", Puel added.
