Tottenham Hotspur kept their unbeaten run in the Premier League under Antonio Conte intact after two goals in stoppage time secured a comeback win for them against Leicester City on Wednesday night. Substitute Steven Bergwijn scored twice in the final minutes of extra-time in a night in which Harry Kane grabbed his 250th career goal.
Leicester had taken the lead with Patson Daka's close-range strike after Tottenham had failed to clear the ball away from their goal inside the 24th minute. Harry Kane then equalised for Spurs with a fantastic finish, cutting in on his left foot after a brilliant run and before dispatching a shot which deflecting in off the far post.
250 - @HKane has scored his 250th goal in club competitions, 10 years and 362 days since he scored his first for Leyton Orient. His latest was his 18th against Leicester and his 15th past Kasper Schmeichel at club level, both personal highs for opponents and goalkeepers.

After James Maddison's second-half goal which was served on a platter by substitute Harvey Barnes, Leicester appeared to have won all three points. However, the introduction of Steven Bergwijn shortly after made all the difference for the visitors. The 24-year-old Dutchman made a remarkable intervention that startled the Foxes, scoring in the 95th and 97th minutes respectively to secure the maximum three points for his side.
Tottenham climbed above Arsenal into fifth position as a result, extending their unbeaten streak in the Premier League since Antonio Conte's arrival to nine. According to Opta, the North London club landed an all-new Premier League record as the win was the latest that a team has come from losing position to manage in the competition's history.
