Riyad Mahrez made a strong shot to make it 2-2 from the penalty spot, before Kane headed home in the 95th minute, bringing the score to Spurs.

Referee Taylor allowed play to continue for more than two minutes after seven men had been allotted time.

But it was Spurs day, with Conte’s men creating a big win in the battle for 4th place.
