Comments:

Final league position 2017-18: 3rd This was Tottenham Hotspur's 500th home game in the Premier League (won 264, lost 113). It was also their 1,000th game in the competition (won 423, lost 322). Harry Kane became the seventh player in Europe's top five leagues to reach 40 goals in all competitions in this season. He also became the first Spurs player to score 40 goals or more in a season in all competitions since Clive Allen in 1986-87 (49). They had now finished in the top three of the top division in three consecutive seasons for the first time since 1963. A total of 24 goals had now been scored in Tottenham Hotspur's final Premier League games in the last three seasons. Jan Vertonghen was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Victor Wanyama was promoted to the starting XI with Davinson Sanchez taking his place on the bench.

Final league position 2017-18: 9th Other than their 2015-16 title-winning season, this was Leicester City's highest final position in the Premier League since they also finished 9th under manager Martin O'Neill in 1996-97. This was the first time that City had lost a Premier League game after leading by two goals since 25 October 2003 (3-4 at Wolverhampton Wanderers). The Foxes had now conceded five goals in each of their last two visits to London in the Premier League (also 0-5 at Crystal Palace on 28 April 2018). Since making his Premier League debut in August 2014, Jamie Vardy had now scored 26 goals against the big-six teams; six more than any other player during this period. This was the first time that the Foxes had been involved in a nine-goal game in the Premier League. Harry Maguire was one of only five outfield players who played in every minute of their team's games in this Premier League season.
