Spurs Compound Leicester City’s misery with 3-0 victory


Leicester City’s capitulation since the restart continued on Sunday as Tottenham added to their misery with an emphatic 3-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium..

With the victory, chances of the Spurs playing at the Europa League football next season received a major boost but in the process left Leicester City’s Champions League ambitions hanging in the balance.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester side have been in the Premier League’s top four for much of the season but a devastating away defeat leaves them with a difficult task going into the final league game next Sunday.

The Foxes finish the season against fifth-placed Manchester United, but should the Red Devils beat West Ham on Wednesday and claim a draw at the King Power, they will be assured of a top-four finish at the expense of Leicester.

James Justin’s own goal from Son Heung-min’s strike and a double from Harry Kane – including a sumptuous curling effort – sealed Spurs’ victory following a splendid first-half showing.

Leicester did have chances but could not find a way past an inspired Hugo Lloris, who made a string of superb saves to deny Jamie Vardy, Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray.

Jose Mourinho’s side move up to sixth in the table, two points clear of Wolves, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have a game in hand.
