Lukaku, Sanchez hunt Kane in late Golden Boot showdown

Lukaku, Sanchez hunt Kane in late Golden Boot showdown

However, Pochettino's men secured second and in turn their best-ever Premier League finish with a fine 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday, their final ever game at White Hart Lane, and they'll be confident of getting another three points at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.

The England global netted four times in Thursday's 6-1 rout to take his tally for the season to 26 and move two clear of Romelu Lukaku in the goalscoring charts.

FOUR of Tottenham's six goals on the night were credited to the England global as the blur of perpetual motion that is Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli tore through the Foxes defense.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has declared Kane " one of the best in the world ". - Leicester have now lost 18 league games this season, the most by a reigning top-flight champion since Ipswich Town in 1962/1963 (19) - Leicester had let in two goals in their previous five home games under Craig Shakespeare before the loss.

England global Kane, who faces Hull on Sunday, told Sky Sports 1: "I've been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet this week".

Top top it all off, after Harry Kane scored his fourth goal of the night and jumped ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot, Leicester fans came out with this...

"From then there was only one team in it and they looked like scoring every time and I have to take some responsibility for that".

"So to still be up there at the top of the charts and to score 30 plus goals this season is a big achievement for me and one that I am very proud of".

"I think this is my best 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.

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.

Spurs continued to shrug off any disappointment following Chelsea's title win and were untouchable as they sealed their 13th win in their last 16 games in all competitions, having already cemented second place.

The forward has now comfortably surpassed 70 league goals for Tottenham and it was the sort of hunger he showcased against Leicester on Thursday which made it clear why.

"Injuries are disappointing, they happen, and it wasn't just me this season".

He now has 26, one more than last season when he was also the Premier League's top scorer, after a ruthless show of finishing which put Leicester to the sword.

With Spurs now in the middle of constructing a new 61,000-seater stadium, chairman Daniel Levy is likely to hand Pochettino a considerably smaller transfer budget in comparison to the rest of the Premier League's elite.
