Two goals in Sunday’s thrilling finale 5-4 win against Leicester City helped us secure third place in the Premier League.

How apt his second goal wrapped up victory and took him to 30 in the Premier League, 41 in all competitions in another memorable campaign for the striker who has gone from Academy graduate to Spurs hero and England captain in four seasons.

In amongst numerous stats and personal milestones - we’ll bring you those tomorrow - Harry has become the first Spur to score 30 goals in a Premier League campaign and only the third player in our history to score 30-plus goals in all competitions in three separate seasons (2014-15, 2016-17 and now 2017-18). He’s in good, in fact, the best company with all-time greats Jimmy Greaves and Bobby Smith and no surprises that Greavsie holds the Club record with 37 league goals back in 1962-63.

Asked about his 41 tally, Harry, speaking pitch side at Wembley, told us: “I’m proud of that, definitely. It was nice to get a couple of goals and get to that 30 mark (in the Premier League).

“It’s been a very good season but there is always room for improvement and that’s what I’ll be looking at next season.”

Topple 41? “Yes, let’s do it next season.”

The players were delighted to clinch third place from Liverpool as we now prepare to play Champions League football for the third-successive season.

What a game to end the season as well! Trailing 1-0 early and then 3-1 two minutes into the second half, Erik Lamela dragged us back into it with two goals and forcing an own goal for 4-3, Jamie Vardy hit his second for 4-4 before Harry had the final word in some style for the final 5-4 scoreline.

“It was an incredible game and I guess it was always going to be like that because both teams could be free in attack and yes, 5-4!” he added.

“We had to dig deep. At 3-1, we got back into the game quickly, which was important.

“Erik Lamela deserves that, he’s worked hard all year, got his opportunity and took it. He scored a couple, he was fantastic and that’s what we needed.

“Full credit to the lads. It was a crazy game and we're all delighted to win to secure third.”
