Conte’s Super Sub!

Antonio Conte’s 78th-minute substitution proved to be a masterstroke. He brought in Steven Bergwijn to replace Sergio Reguilon. The Dutch international was the spark that helped Spurs mount a comeback. He scored the equalizer in the 95th minute in what many thought was the last goal of the night.

However, immediately after the resulting kick-off, Leicester lost possession, and Bergwijn pounced on Kane’s through ball to score his second for the night. That goal sealed an unbelievable win for the Spurs, which sparked wild celebrations in the stadium.

The hero of the night was swamped by ecstatic teammates and visiting supporters as Leicester City watched in disbelief. The joy was too much for Spurs players to handle. Lucas Moura was pictured jumping into the arms of a steward outside the pitch.

You have to credit the steward as he managed to keep his cool and took the unusual situation in his stride. And yes, his upper body strength was also impressive as he could hold the Spurs winger without falling. When you look at the pictures of his counterparts being knocked to the floor, you will understand better!

EPL’s New Record!

Apart from bagging three crucial points, Spurs also took Manchester City’s record for the Premier League’s latest ever winning comeback. They trailed Leicester after 94 minutes and 52 seconds with five minutes of stoppage time before the Dutchman scored his first goal.

Manchester City held the previous record when they beat Queens Park Rangers to win the title in May 2012. The riveting encounter ended 3-2 thanks to Edin Dzeko’s equalizer in the 91:14 minute and Sergio Aguero’s heroic goal that put his name in EPL’s history books.

Bergwin scored his heroic second goal of the night in the 90+7 minute, making him the first EPL player to score an equalizer and winning goal in stoppage time. Harry Kane, who provided the assist for the historic goal, was full of praise for the game’s hero.
