Harry Kane Brace Relegate Leeds From The Premier League But Tottenham Miss Out On Europe

Tottenham won 4-1 at Leeds in a result which saw the home side relegated from the Premier League but did not prove enough to earn Spurs a place in Europe.

Spurs got off to the perfect start when Harry Kane fired them into a second-minute lead, converting from 12 yards out after running on to Heung-min Son’s square pass. The goal was the 350th of Kane’s senior career.

Robin Koch and Rodrigo both headed wide the pick of Leeds’ chances in the first half, and they were made to pay for it before some home fans had even returned to their seats after the interval.

Kane turned provider this time, flicking the ball over Liam Cooper before feeding Pedro Porro on the right, who shot low and hard and into the bottom left corner.

Leeds were offered a glimmer of hope when Jack Harrison reduced the deficit for Leeds in the 67th minute, firing a low angled shot into the far corner to make it 2-1.

But moments after scoring, Kane got his second of the game after combining again well with Porro on the counter and netting his 280th goal for Spurs.

And late substitute Lucas Moura, who leaves Tottenham at the end of his contract this summer, scored a wonderful solo goal to sign off from Spurs in fairytale style.

Leeds end the season 19th in the table. Aston Villa’s victory over Brighton meant Spurs finished in eighth place, missing out on a place in next season’s Europa Conference League.
