Leicester 2 – 3 Tottenham

Steven Bergwijn scored twice in stoppage time for Tottenham to stage one of the craziest comebacks in Premier League history to beat Leicester 3-2.

Leicester looked set for three points with the clock at 95 minutes at 2-1 up but two goals in 80 seconds from the substitute Bergwijn turned the game completely around and left the Foxes in complete shock.

The hosts took the lead against the run of play on 24 minutes when Patson Daka squeezed home a finish beyond Hugo Lloris.

Spurs, who had already had two efforts cleared off the line and saw Harry Kane crash a header against the crossbar, fully deserved their leveller that came on 38 minutes when the England striker danced through the Leicester defense and finished in confident fashion.

Antonio Conte’s side registered 27 shots in the match, creating an expected goals figure of 4.49 but Leicester stayed in the contest and hit Spurs with a sucker punch with 14 minutes to go.

Substitute Harvey Barnes made an immediate impact with a cute touch to send James Maddison through on goal and his deflected effort skipped in off the post. The silky Maddison has now racked up 15 goal involvements this season and scored five goals in his last six appearances.

Leicester looked to be strolling to victory but Bergwijn hammered home from close range on 90+5 minutes before scampering through following a fine Kane pass 80 seconds later and finished off the inside of the post.

Remarkable.

What’s next?

Leicester host Brighton on Sunday, kick off at 2pm. Meanwhile, Spurs have a trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday where they face Chelsea in a London derby, live on Sky Sports,
