Gareth Bale completed what’s turned into a productive loan spell at Tottenham by coming off the bench to seal a place in next season’s UEFA Conference League.

Two Jamie Vardy penalties either side of Harry Kane equaliser saw the Foxes lead 2-1 and leave themselves on course to qualify for the Champions League, but three goals in the final 14 minutes secured a 4-2 victory for Ryan Mason’s team and a fifth successive season above Arsenal.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Didn’t have much to do and couldn’t get close to either of the penalties.

Matt Doherty, 6 – Replaced Tanganga in the side and had a steady afternoon.

Toby Alderweireld, 6 – Generally strong performance, but marked down due to giving away a penalty on Vardy.

Davinson Sanchez, 3 – Should have done more to prevent the opening goal and conceded a needless spot kick on Vardy for Leicester’s goal in what could have been his final outing for the club.

Sergio Reguilon, 5 – Better than in recent weeks, but that doesn’t say much.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 6 – Completed the entire Premier League season without missing a single minute, and worked hard against a quality Leicester side.

Harry Winks , 5 – Covered plenty of ground, but Spurs simply must upgrade on him this summer.

Dele Alli, 5 – Set up a Son with an excellent pass in the first half before he was replaced by Moura.

Steven Bergwijn, 4 – Unable to continue where he left off on Wednesday and added very little to Tottenham’s attack.

Son Heung-min, 6 – Should have buried an early chance, but failed to get his shot away, although it was his corner that led to the second equaliser.

Harry Kane, 8 – Scored an superb equaliser just before half-time to win his third Golden Boot, and then laid on his 14th assist of the season for Bale’s winner.


Gareth Bale, 8 – Swept home the winner with a clinical finish before making the points safe in added-time with a fine second having seen his initial effort come back off the post.

Lucas Moura, 6 – Ran around a lot with little end product.

Joe Rodon, N/A – Replaced Son in stoppage-time.



  1. Eating humble pie and admit being wrong in thinking Tottenham didn’t have it in them to get a result.Well done.
    Who knows Brendan Rodgers might now be prepared to take on the poisoned chalice of coaching Spurs?
    However do we really want someone who bottles CL qualification twice on the spin?
