And the Dutchman also set a new Premier League record in the process.

Leicester were leading 2-1 until the 95th minute when super-sub Bergwijn opened fire to equalize.

But the winger excelled with a 97th-minute goal to break Leicester’s heart.

Tottenham fans who had made their way to the King Power Stadium broke out in joy as Bergwijn scored his second goal within minutes.

And the Spurs players headed to the far end of the pitch to join in the frenetic celebrations.

But the chance to celebrate went to the fan-favorite Moura, who famously scored the winning goal in the 96th minute against Ajax to send Spurs into the 2019 Champions League final, which was a bit too much.

The Brazilian sprinted across the pitch before plunging into the circle of an awestruck manager, who showed off his strength by holding Moura aloft with just one arm.

Tottenham have all the more reason to celebrate their dramatic win as Bergwijn rewrites the record books.

The last time a team fought to win the Premier League was in May 2012, when City beat QPR 3-2.

Roberto Mancini’s men were trailing 2-1 on the clock at 91:14 before they scored the first of two late strikes to mark a historic first Premier League title.

However, Wednesday night’s action saw the Spurs lead 2-1 until 94:52 before they fought back through Bergwijn’s double.

It means City’s current record has been broken in over three and a half minutes.

And Antonio Conte will be hoping a morale-elevating win will help Spurs on their way to a top-four finish.

The game also sees Harry Kane scores his 250th goal for the club, almost 11 years since he was first loaned out at Leyton Orient.

Kane equalized 1-1 after Patson Daka’s opener, with James Maddison’s 76th-minute effort putting Leicester ahead until Bergwijn scored a fateful double.
