Peep! That's it; Leicester are in the Europa League next season, while Spurs will be in the Europa Conference League.
- GoalGareth BaleTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Leicester City 2 Tottenham Hotspur 4 (Bale 90+6)
It's another one for Bale! With Leicester piling forward Spurs break, with Bale using decoy runners to saunter right through the middle of the pitch and into the area. He pokes his shot onto the post initially, but gobbles up the rebound from a yard out.
Joe Rodon replaces Son for Spurs.
Iheanacho scrambles the ball over the line from a corner, but he and another player were in clear offside positions.
What a blow for Leicester. Have they got anything left to give here? Schmeichel is up for a corner, and there will be at least five more minutes.
- GoalGareth BaleTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Leicester City 2 Tottenham Hotspur 3 (Bale 87)
Spurs lead! Or do they? Kane gets onto a back heel from Son in the area, and goes around Schmeichel; there's no angle for the shot, so he lays it off to Bale who places the ball through a crowd and into the net. It's VAR reviewed as the ball popped up and hit Kane's hand initially, but it's not deemed near enough to the goal being scored, so it stands!
Kane tries to scoop a ball over the Leicester defence and Mendy scrambles it behind for a corner. This is on edge! The corner is cleared eventually, and an almost comically cynical hack from Winks stops a three on one Leicester break. My oh my, they were in then without that foul.
Ayoze Perez replaces Albrighton for Leicester.
Goals elsewhere: Liverpool now lead Leicester 2-0 after another Mane goal, and Chelsea have pulled one back at Villa. Brace yourselves for a big last ten; Leicester need a goal to get in the Champions League, Spurs need one for the Europa Conference League.
Leicester are currently in fifth, and also in bother on the pitch. Spurs, with Moura, Bale, Son and Kane up top, are going for this. They work the ball through to Son on the left of the area, and his low shot is saved by the feet of Schmeichel.
- Own-goalKasper SchmeichelLeicester City
GOAL! Leicester City 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2 (Schmeichel o.g. 77)
Spurs are level! Son whips the corner right into the six yard box. Schmeichel, under pressure but not being fouled, tries to punch it away but can only divert it into his own net!
Spurs win a free kick in a dangerous position on the left of the Leicester area. Son whips it in but Soyuncu, who has been excellent today, heads it away at the near post.
A few minutes of not much here from both sides. Son then suddenly gets away down the left from a chipped pass, and his cross into the area is hacked wildly out for a corner by Soyuncu.
Although it's going Leicester's way here, it's precarious; a Spurs equaliser would put them back in fifth if Chelsea don't go three behind at Villa. A nervy 20 minutes incoming.
Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura replace Bergwijn and Alli for Spurs.
Vardy is giving Sanchez an afternoon here; he runs him deep into the Spurs area again and wins another corner.
A nice ball from Albrighton, stroked with the outside of his right foot, finds Vardy down the left. He runs at Sanchez and wins Leicester a corner.
- OffJames MaddisonLeicester City
- OnRicardo PereiraLeicester City
Ricardo replaces Maddison for Leicester.
Leicester are keeping it tight now, and playing through Vardy and Iheanacho on the break.
- Yellow cardSteven BergwijnTottenham Hotspur
Bergwijn goes in the book for a late challenge. Iheanacho then goes on a run into the Spurs area, before sidefooting tamely at Lloris.
Well well, more news! A penalty by Anwar El Ghazi at Villa Park has increased Villa's lead over Chelsea to 2-0.
Back on the pitch, Kane picks up a loose ball and cuts into the area, but balloons over from 15 yards with his left foot.
How big a goal could that be? That was poor defending from Sanchez, because Vardy was going away from goal.
- Goal by penaltyJamie VardyLeicester City
GOAL! Leicester City 2 (Vardy pen. 52) Tottenham Hotspur 1
He's done it again! Vardy goes low and to the right again, with Lloris rooted; Leicester lead, and they're back in the top four! That's also Vardy's 150th goal of his senior career.
PENALTY! Maddison finds Vardy in the area with a lovely reverse pass. As Vardy gets in behind Sanchez they tangle arms; it's a foul, Vardy goes over and after a VAR check, it stands.
Thomas wins a corner for Leicester. Maddison and Tielemans work it short, and lay it off to Mendy; his curler from 20 yards out is comfortably gathered by Lloris.
A ball from Maddison almost releases Vardy down the left, but he can't control it.
Elswhere, Pepe has put Arsenal 1-0 ahead against Brighton at the Emirates. That means Spurs have dropped to eighth, and are currently facing the prospect of no European football next season.
- 2nd Half
We're underway again at the King Power stadium.
- End of 1st Half
After two minutes of added time, that's your lot for the first half. Right here, right now, Leicester are heading for the Europa League and Spurs for the Europa League Conference.
CHANCE! Vardy briefly gets in behind from a long ball from Albrighton, but a superb sliding tackle from Sanchez clears the ball.
Better news for Leicester here though, as Villa have taken the lead over Chelsea through Bertrand Traore. Leicester are fifth as things stand, but one of the results they need from elsewhere is in place.
That was a superb finish from Kane, who has hardly been in this so far.
- GoalHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Leicester City 1 Tottenham Hotspur 1 (Kane 41)
Who else? Kane wins a corner for Spurs. From it an almighty scramble ensues as Leicester fail to clear the ball; it pops up to Kane ten yards from goal, and he volleys it ruthlessly through Schmeichel to bring Spurs level. He's also now the top scorer in the Premier League!
CHANCE! Alli picks out Son with a superb ball and he's in, seven yards from goal. He can't control it though, and has to lay off to Kane instead; that buys enough time for Soyuncu to slide in and clear for a corner.
Over at Anfield, Sadio Mane has put Liverpool ahead against Palace; as things stand, both they and Leicester are in the Champions League next season.
An adventurous run from Soyuncu, all the way to the byline, sees him scuff a cross into the area but Spurs clear. From the next attack, Albrighton has an ambitious whack from 25 yards out but it's comfortably saved by Lloris.
West Ham have scored twice in two minutes to lead 2-0 against Southampton. As it stands, Spurs are now playing for a place in the Europa Conference League.
Kane gets into some space on the right, but can only dump his cross straight into the hands of Schmeichel.
Spurs almost get through, as Son clips a ball into the area for Bergwijn, but Thomas just manages to get his body across the line of the pass and clear. That was good tracking, because Bergwijn was in otherwise.
Iheanacho intercepts a ball from Winks 25 yards and gets a clean look at goal, but he'd used his arm to control it and it's quickly pulled back.
Kane briefly looks like getting an opening on his right foot in the area, but is quickly crowded out. The ball breaks to Reguilon, who wins a corner.
Everton are now two down at Manchester City. As it stands, Leicester are third in the Premier League.
- OffWesley FofanaLeicester City
- OnNampalys MendyLeicester City
Bad news for Leicester now as Fofana has picked up a knock, and can't continue. He's replaced by Nampalys Mendy, and Ndidi drops back in at centre half.
Leicester, and Vardy, are so up for this and they almost get through again but good cover from Sanchez dispossesses Vardy when they were one-on-one in the area.
- Goal by penaltyJamie VardyLeicester City
GOAL! Leicester City 1 (Vardy pen. 18) Tottenham Hotspur 0
Cool as you like from Vardy, as he sends Lloris definitively the wrong way to give Leicester potentially crucial lead.
PENALTY! That review didn't take long. Vardy latched on to a loose ball and tried to cut into the area, and a careless stray leg from Alderweireld sent him over.
Good news for Spurs, as Everton have gone behind at the Etihad. On the pitch, Vardy hits the deck when running through into the area, collapsing under a challenge from Alderweireld. We're playing on, but his is going to be a penalty...
Alli goes on a dander, beating three but losing the ball as it drifts out over the touchline. A brief spat with Castagne over which way the throw-in should go follows, before Anthony Taylor calms it all down.
Suerb work from Ndidi in midfield, winning a ball he looked certain to lose, eventually leads to him finding Maddison. He unloads from 25 yards out, and it's deflected wide for another corner.
Leicester are on the up now as Maddison is finding some space. He slides it into the channel for Vardy, who wins a corner. That finds Soyuncu, who can only guide a soft header into the hands of Lloris.
A foothold for Leicester, as Vardy briefly gets behind the Spurs defence. He lays it off to Tielemans, whose cross is headed clear at the back post.
Leicester give it away sloppily in their final third. Winks and Bergwijn work it through to Alli in the area, but he can't get the ball under control and it's a goal kick.
Son gets into the left side of the Leicester area from a long, diagonal ball. After exchanging passes with Reguilon he opens up and shoots, but it deflects harmlessly through to Schmeichel.
Before we kick-off, both sides take the knee. There is no room for racism, anywhere.
Here come the players, and we're ready to get it popping. Your referee today is Anthony Taylor.
Other news: we'll have 10,000 in the King Power this afternoon, which will be just magnificent to see.
Two other things in the mix today - it's Ryan Mason's last game in temporary charge of Spurs and Roy Hodgson's last game in charge of anyone at Anfield. Will either have an impact on the race for the European places? The final day rarely goes to plan, so don't bank on this being a lazy Sunday afternoon.
As well as all of the various European permutations for the clubs, Kane is part of an individual race today. He’s currently level with Mohamed Salah on 22 goals, so the Premier League Golden Boot is still on the line. Could his last act as a Spur be to win the award for the third time?
A quick reminder of the corresponding fixture between these two in December, where Leicester walked away from the Tottenham Stadium with all three points.
As for Spurs, it's in their hands. If they win and West Ham lose at home to Southampton, they'll be in the Europa League next season. If they win and West Ham draw or win, it's a debut in the Europa Conference League; draw or lose and they can potentially be leapfrogged by Everton and Arsenal if both sides win, and as a result will have no European football at all next year. Gulp!
The other fixtures affecting the Spurs:
West Ham United v Southampton
Arsenal v Brighton and Hove Albion
Manchester City v Everton
A quick capsule review of what Leicester need to do today. Ahem: if they win, and one of Chelsea or Liverpool doesn’t, then they’ll be in the Champions League next season. A draw could be enough too, if either Liverpool lose and Chelsea lose by three, or both such results come in.
Those concurrent fixtures that Leicester will be keeping tabs on:
Liverpool v Crystal Palace
Aston Villa v Chelsea
Ryan Mason makes two changes to the Spurs team that lost to Aston Villa a few days back. Matt Doherty replaces the injured Japhet Tangana at right back, while Davison Sanchez replaces Eric Dier at centre half.
Only one change for Leicester from their midweek defeat to Chelsea, as Kelechi Iheanacho joins Jamie Vardy up front with Ayoze Perez dropping to the bench.
They are Tottenham, from the Lane:
Here are your genial hosts, those Foxes of Leicester City:
Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of Leicester City versus Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
It’s been quite a week for Leicester. Winning the first FA Cup in their history? Very, very good indeed. Losing their place in the top four for the first time this season? Not so. They were denied a place in the Champions League on the final day last season; will the same fate befall them again? This time, unlike last, it’s not in their own hands.
Still Leicester could have had it worse; they could have had Tottenham’s month. One of the gang of six involved in the short-lived European Super League project, Spurs have since sacked their manager Jose Mourinho, lost the EFL Cup Final, watched their Champions League hopes disappear and are now scrambling around trying to qualify for the Europa League. There is still the possibility of being in the Europa Conference League instead, or no European football next season at all.
On top of all that Harry Kane seems to want away and, should they fail to win today, they could yet be leapfrogged by Arsenal. Black clouds over Spurs then, but brighter things behind them if they can blag a win today and finish the season by qualifying for one of the European competitions. Leicester need help from elsewhere, but a win might yet earn a second ever crack at the Champions League.
Plenty to play for then, and we’re on from 4pm.
