Pochettino: Spurs must be courageous in transfer window

Pochettino: Spurs must be courageous in transfer window

While Kane showed a return to his razor-sharp best, Mahrez and Vardy revived memories of Leicester's unlikely march to the title in 2016, although whether or not they will be linking up in blue shirts next season remains a doubt. Yet what a send-off they gave to Wembley. Even if they do lift the famous old trophy on Saturday, it is likely not to be enough to save the Italian's job. This win over a spirited Leicester City was rather more madcap and of less significance but it provided a richly entertaining finale.

The hosts trailed 3-1 after 47 minutes, scored three goals in 11 minutes to lead 4-3, only to be pegged back to 4-4 before Harry Kane curled in the victor in the 76th minute.

Salah took the award with 32 goals, a record for a 38-game season.

"We are thinking now we need to make our new stadium home and we know it will be tough in the beginning to settle there", he told a post-match news conference.

The game had the trappings of a meaningless end-of-season rubber and yet there were thrills and spills from the first whistle. Iheanacho wormed his way into the area, Adrien Silva prodded the ball towards Vardy and, although he was denied, Mahrez was on hand to smash home from 10 yards.


Jamie Vardy points to the sky after netting his 20th Premier League goal of the campaign.

The Tottenham target is an incredibly versatile player, possessing the ability to play as a deeper defensive midfielder or operate in a more advanced position.

"It's not just long ball and just battles with centre-backs". Mo has done great this year, he deserves it, he deserves the Golden Boot. Mauricio Pochettino's squad managed to outscore Claude Puel's troops despite being forced to go with a makeshift lineup due to injury. Tottenham's defenders looked like strangers, at times. A whole new back line for Manchester City and two new world-class strikers in Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the Emirates were big moves.

Spurs announced on their official Twitter account on Monday that Walker-Peters, 21, has extended his deal until 2021, adding a further year on to the three-year contract he signed last August.

Leicester's lead was at two for just two minutes. Iheanacho's was the pick of the afternoon.
