Harry Kane on course for the Golden Boot

Harry Kanes first ever four-goal haul propelled him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts with the Tottenham striker in the “driving seat” to finish as top scorer when the final league games are played on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur reiterated their stance as one of the Premier League's elite sides with a crushing 6-1 win over Leicester City on Thursday night. After just three years of Premier League football with Tottenham he's already 18th on the list of Spurs' all-time leading goal scorers, and Kane says he's nowhere near done, with a goal to try and crack 100 league goals before the end of next season.

"It is very clear we will keep the players we want to keep and we will maybe sell the players we want to sell", said Pochettino.

"There's still one game left to play so I'm not resting on my laurels. That is his second season in the Premier League and we are so happy".

"We talk about "if Tottenham are in the Champions League, it will be more attractive".

As such, the midfielder looks like an absolute bargain at £11 million and is a critical player in the club's quest for future silverware.

'When they scored the third goal I didn't see enough desire to defend as a team it drained us of any belief.

Kane's four strikes, which included a double-goal flourish in the last minutes of the one-sided contest, catapulted him past Romelu Lukaku, who for a long time has seemed the likeliest to grab the top marksman award.

The 23-year-old would surely have scored more than 40 if he hadn't missed two chunks of this season with ankle injuries, and Pochettino spoke glowing about Kane's appetite for success.

"We said before the game that we'd secured second place and we wanted to go out there and enjoy it".

The home side were struggling, and with the rampant Spurs and Kane looking to add to their tally, they collapsed, with Kane hitting two goals in three minutes as the game came to a close, becoming the first Spurs player to register four hat-tricks in a season since the great Jimmy Greaves.

Son made the win an emphatic one with the best goal of the game.

'We were totally second best, ' said Shakespeare.

"During the whole season we've been talking about improving and learning and this type of performance shows that the team is improving and has learned a lot from last season". If you get beaten 6-1 there are no positives.

Harry Kane is aiming to join the Premier League's "100 Club" next season after becoming only the fifth player to reach the 25-goal mark in successive seasons.
