🚨 Bergwijn scores dramatic stoppage-time brace as Spurs sink Leicester at the King Power

Steven Bergwijn scored a dramatic injury-time double as Tottenham Hotspur beat Leicester City 3-2 at the King Power in the English Premier League on Wednesday night. 

Patson Daka and James Maddison scored on either side of a Harry Kane goal to give Leicester a 2-1 lead going into added time, but substitute Bergwijn stunned the hosts with a double in two minutes of added time as Spurs snatched the points. 

Spurs were the first to have sight of goal in the ninth minute when Harry Kane burst into the box and pulled the trigger, but couldn't beat the goalkeeper as one of the defenders reacted brilliantly to block the shot.

Kane was again involved in the 19th minute as he outjumped everyone to meet a cross from a corner ball, but his header bounced off the bar for a goal-kick. 

Lucas Moura then forced a good save from the goalkeeper in the 22nd minute after jinking his way past multiple challenges to fire the ball from the edge of the box to the right side of the goal.

Davinson Sanchez also came close for Tottenham, but it was the hosts who took the lead against the run of play in the 22nd minute. 

Patson Daka picked the ball up inside the box and drilled a low shot inside the left post.to give the Foxes the lead. 

The Foxes then went all out in search of a second goal, and it almost arrived when James Maddison managed to place a shot from the edge of the box towards the right side of the goal, but Hugo Lloris made a terrific save to deny him.

Spurs then pulled level in the 38th minute as Kane burst into Leicester's penalty area after his amazing solo run and fired a low shot on goal, which settled in the bottom left corner, ricocheting in off the post. 

Kane then had two chances to give Spurs the lead going into the break, but good goalkeeping ensured the match was all-square at half-time. 

The second half saw both teams continue creating chances, with Madison and Japhet Tanganga all coming close for Leicester and Spurs respectively. 

Leicester gained momentum going into the last 20 minutes, and it was no surprise when Maddison scored their second in the 76th minute, even though his strike went in after taking a slight defelection. 

It seemed as though the goal was enough to give Leicester the three points, but Bergwijn, who was a 79th-minute introduction scored in the 90+5 and 90+7 minutes to give Antonio Conte's side maximum points. 

The win saw Spurs move up to fifth on the standings while Leicester remained in the bottom half of the table.
