Tottenham Hotspur have moved above North London rivals Arsenal on the Premier League table after they secured a dramatic 3-2 win at Leicester City when the two teams met in a rescheduled match at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday. Spurs scored twice deep into injury time through Dutch substitute Steven Bergwijn to beat the Foxes and move ahead of the Gunners on the log.


Spurs were the better of the two teams and they came close to taking the lead on numerous occasions with star striker Harry Kane the biggest culprit as he was wasteful when he should have have punished the home team. Kane is undoubtedly an important player for both club and country. The Tottenham Hotspur star is expected to spearhead the quest for glory at the World Cup 2022 tournament in Qatar later this year in the colours of the Three Lions of England. Kane had a difficult start to the season for Spurs on the back of his failed move to Manchester City last summer, but he has always found the back of the net for England despite his poor club form especially in theWorld Cup 2022 qualifiers. He finished as the joint topscorer in the World Cup 2022 qualifiers in the European section alongside Dutchman Memphis Depay.

Kane was able to make amends for his earlier misses with the Tottenham Hotspur equaliser on 38 minutes after Leicester City had taken the lead on 24 minutes through Zambian striker PatsonDaka who was making a return from injury for the Foxes. Daka had missed the last few weeks due to a hamstring problem.

Leicester City were on their way to a crucial win when James Maddison gave them the lead in the second half before Berwijn struck twice deep into injury time to give his team the points. Kane provided the assist for the all-important third goal.

The win took Spurs above Arsenal into fifth place. The North Londoners have one more point than the Gunners with a game in hand.
