Tottenham produced an incredible late comeback against Leicester to boost their hopes of a top four finish.
Second-half substitute Steven Bergwijn scored two quick-fire goals late into second-half injury time to snatch a 3-2 win for Spurs at the King Power Stadium.
Antonio Conte’s side looked to be heading for a damaging defeat when James Maddison put Leicester 2-1 ahead, after Tottenham striker Harry Kane had cancelled out Patson Daka’s opener.

But two goals in 80 seconds from Bergwijn turned the match on its head, with Tottenham stealing victory with virtually the last kick of the match.
Bergwijn was brought on in the 79th minute and was soon handed a yellow card for a shove on Leicester defender Caglar Soyuncu as the match entered injury time.
He would drag his side level in the fifth minute of added time, finishing well past Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel after a ball had rebounded off Soyuncu.

Bergwijn, who has been strongly linked with a move to Ajax this month, then sparked pandemonium in the Tottenham end with a dramatic late winner.
After being played through on goal by Kane, Bergwijn rounded Schmeichel before calmly slotting a finish past the despairing Soyuncu.
Victory for Tottenham moves them above rivals Arsenal and into fifth in the table, one point off the Champions League places.
It also extends Conte's unbeaten run in the Premier League with Tottenham to nine matches.
