Kane scores 4 as EPL runner-up Tottenham routs Leicester 6-1

Harry Kane Tottenham

A relentless Spurs team made light work of holding dethroned Premier League champions Leicester in a 6-1 thrashing at the King Power stadium.

If Kane can hold off Lukaku and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez in the last match of the season this weekend, it would be his second consecutive Golden Boot, which puts him in an elite group of back-to-back winners that includes Thierry Henry, Robin Van Persie, Michael Owen, and the great Alan Shearer.

Harry Kane (four goals) and Heung-Min Son (brace) scored Spurs' goals while Benjamin Chilwell grabbed Leicester's goal.

Kane scored 25 times to clinch the golden boot last season and is on course to defend his personal title with Pochettino praising the 23-year-old.

Son's superb strikes mean that - for the first time in the club's history - they have three players who have scored 20 goals in a season, and took them beyond 75 league goals for the first time since 1984-85.

He is also only the second player this season to score four goals in the Premier League, joining goalscoring rival Lukaku in the exclusive club. But there is still one game to go and I'm sure he's determined to score a hat-trick on Sunday.

England worldwide Kane, who hopes to add to his tally at relegated Hull on Sunday, said: "I've been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet this week. I wanted one or two tonight to take it to the last game, so to score those at the end made it the ideal night".

"We talk about 'if Tottenham are in the Champions League, it will be more attractive.' But then it's all about if you pay or not when we talk about top players".

"We will keep the players that we want to keep", Pochettino said. They are happy here, we have an exciting project.

Son got his second on 71 minutes, curling beyond Schmeichel into the bottom corner from 20 yards after Kane's pass in midfield to make it 4-1, before Kane himself took over the game. They have a tough game against Arsenal but there's still one more game.

THE season may be all but over - but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has said he is still focusing on a win over Leicester City tonight which would ensure his side surpasses the points total which won the East Midlands outfit the title last season. The midfielder worked it to Chilwell, who managed to squeeze the ball beyond Dier on the line, only for Kane to immediately restore Spurs' two-goal advantage to spark a rout. "It's not just about the goals he's scored, it's the way he competes in all areas, he's a team player, he's fantastic in the dressing room". Son got behind the Leicester defence and cut the ball back for Kane, who finished with aplomb.

He has climbed to the top the tally with 26 goals in the season, two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

Dele Alli's low header was then saved by Kasper Schmeichel as Spurs began to raise the tempo, sensing Leicester were there for the taking.

Since winning in their first ever Premier League encounter, Hull are without a win in their last eight games against Tottenham (D2 L6).
