Leicester City blew up champion League chance as Arsenal also miss out on Europa competition for the first time in 25 years

Leicester blew the chance to qualify for the Champions League for just the second time in the club’s history as the Foxes lost 4-2 to Tottenham on Sunday.

Jamie Vardy twice put Brendan Rodgers’s men ahead from the penalty spot.

But Harry Kane, on what could be his final appearance for Spurs, a Kasper Schmeichel own goal and a late double from Gareth Bale secured seventh place in the Premier League for Tottenham and a place in next season’s Europa Conference League.

Meanwhile, this wining lead Tottenham to sealed a spot in the Europa League Conference and ensured they finished above Arsenal by beating Leicester 3-2 on the final day of the season.

Spurs went into final round of matches occupying seventh place in the Premier League and two late goals from Gareth Bale at the King Power Stadium sealed European qualification.

It means Arsenal will not be playing European football next season for the first time since the 1995-96 season.
