Tottenham Hotspur ended their season at Wembley with victory in a stunning nine-goal thriller against Leicester City on Sunday.
In what was undoubtedly one of the best games of the entire English Premier League season, Spurs emerged 5-4 winners after initially falling behind in the match.
Doubles from Harry Kane, Erik Lamela and a Christian Fuchs own goal ensured the three points that confirmed their qualification for the group stages of next season’s UEFA Champions League.
While the goalscorers stole the headlines, it was another name on every Spurs supporter’s lips after the match – Kyle Walker-Peters.
The 21-year-old fringe player was starting just his second Premier League match of the season and was superb on the right flank, assisting two of the goals.
Fans are now hugely excited about his future and believe he can play a bigger part in Mauricio Pochettino’s first team next season.

Ridiculous final game of the season. We got the job done in the end though. Walker-Peters looked very good today and Eriksen demonstrated how important he is for us. Makes things happen. Roll on next season back home. #THFC #COYS

With a good preseason for Walker-Peters, he could fill the void of when Walker left. Every tackle, every 50:50 he won and was a threat going forward! Big, big future! #COYS

Walker – Peters putting a marker down for next season. Great going up and down the wing, good balance & athletic. And, most importantly of all he's a Spurs boy.
Whats not to like
Congrats Kyle 👏👏👏#COYS

Walker-Peters just saved us buying a new right back #coys

A real stand-out performance this afternoon from Kyle Walker-Peters, the defender showed himself to be extremely solid and impressive in today’s back-line.
