Tottenham Give Chelsea a Hand in Champions League Race

This Sunday, the final day of this Premier League season took place and the definition of the teams that qualified for European competitions lived up to expectations.

Tottenham defeated Leicester City 2-4 away and got a win that not only delighted their fans.

In the 18th minute, Jamie Vardy took a penalty and gave the Foxes the lead, but Harry Kane’s volley levelled the score in the 41st minute.

The second half started with another Vardy penalty which meant Leicester’s second goal. However, an own goal from Schmeichel and two spectacular goals from Gareth Bale sealed a painful defeat for the home side.

With this result, Brendan Rodgers’ men finished in fifth place with 66 points and will participate in the UEFA Europa League next season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea lost 2-1 away to Aston Villa. However, Tottenham’s win has allowed them to claim fourth place with 67 points and seal their ticket to the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-0 to finish third on 69 points and secure their place in the next UCL.

West Ham defeated Southampton 3-0 and will join Leicester in the Europa League.

On the other hand, Spurs (placed seventh with 62 points) will be the first English team to participate in the Conference League, a new competition created by UEFA.
