Tottenham Hotspur secure their place in the UEFA Conference League (and more importantly, finish over Arsenal in the table) after registering a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this evening. It was a roller coaster ride for the fans, as the Lilywhites came back from a 2-1 deficit in the second half to steal all three points, squishing Leicester’s hopes of qualifying in the Champions League in the process.

Tottenham Player Ratings Vs Leicester City

Hugo Lloris 6

Hugo Lloris didn’t have to do too much but looked powerless in keeping both Jamie Vardy penalties out. Not the best of performances from the Frenchman.

Matt Doherty 5

Matt Doherty didn’t offer anything to the table at right-back. He was ineffective going forward and was simply not good enough to make an impact on the proceedings.

Davinson Sanchez 6.5

Davinson Sanchez played well for the most part, trying to keep up with Vardy. The Colombian, though, committed the foul that led to the second penalty for Leicester.

Toby Alderweireld 6.5

Toby Alderweireld was relatively solid in the Tottenham backline. His experience helped the Lilywhites maintain their composure in the backline as they secured a late victory.

Sergio Reguilon 5

Sergio Reguilon was once again poor, struggling to offer anything going forward. He was also very fragile defensively and was lucky to get away with certain counter-attacking opportunities for Leicester.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 7

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg put in a heroic display in the middle of the park. He won some key duels that broke Leicester’s approach play, helping Tottenham keep up with the opposition.

Harry Winks 6

Harry Winks was not as good as Hojbjerg, struggling to influence the game in possession. Looked sloppy at times and had to commit a tactical foul to deny Leicester an opportunity.

Steven Bergwijn 4

Steven Bergwijn didn’t offer anything to the table on the right-hand side, struggling to beat his marker to get behind the Leicester City backline. Subbed off midway through the second half.

Dele Alli 5

A game of two halves for Dele Alli, who did well in the first half but was completely anonymous in the second, prompting his substitution in the 68th minute of the game.

Son Heung-Min 6.5

Son Heung-Min was quiet and lazy for the most part of the game before a late cameo that made life difficult for the opposition defenders. Looked dangerous from set-pieces in particular.

Harry Kane 7

Harry Kane scored the all-important first goal for Tottenham but was barely involved afterwards. Not the best of games for the Englishman, though he did register the assist for Bale’s winner.

SUBSTITUTES

Gareth Bale 9

Gareth Bale made an instant impact after coming on for Bergwijn. Scored the all-important winner and then another one in what would probably be his last game for Spurs.

Lucas Moura 6

Lucas Moura offered more than Alli after coming on in the second half, using his dynamism to good effect.

Joe Rodon N/A

Replaced Son late in the game.
