The end of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign nears and Tottenham Hotspur were looking to finish off our final games with somewhat of a flourish to see if we could secure a Europa League adventure for next year. First up, were Leicester City, who had ambitions of their own this year.

It was certainly a bright start and Son Heung-Min looked to have given us the advantage six minutes into the first half, however it seems the goal has now been credited as an own goal for James Justin.

Whatever I seemingly missed on the first goal, it was soon 3-0 as Harry Kane helped himself to a brace inside of three minutes. Game over at half time, or would we make life complicated for ourselves?

Well, we made it difficult and I’m not sure we did anything in the second period given how on top Leicester were – but with that said, we weren’t really in any trouble. We did keep the clean sheet though and Kane was denied his hat-trick owing to an offside call, so 3-0 it finished.

Another three points and onto the last one now.

Unused Spurs Subs:

Vertonghen, Sessegnon, Foyth, Gazzaniga, Tanganga.

Unused Leicester Subs:

Ward, Choudhury, James, Johnson.

German striker Jurgen Klinsmann spent two years at White Hart Lane in separate spells, but how many league goals did he contribute?

    • Cheers HT – yes I finally caught up, my stream went so I focused on the possible ‘interfering offside’ and completely missed the deflection in the process. I’m not the sharpest cookie on occasions! lol

  • Upon reflection of the game… I was reminded of the boxing match M. Ali v G. Foreman. The rope a dope tactic… draw Leicester onto us (see my post on prev. thread) then KO by HK10 goals. 🙂

  • Only two games matter now …. Palace v Spurs and Chelsea v Wolves. At least the last game of the season will have some excitement attached to it! I think the likely outcome will be a Spurs win and Chelsea win or draw. Or maybe, Spurs draw and Wolves lose. Who knows? It’s a case of Europe or bust.
