Kane scores four and Son hits double as Tottenham rout Leicester

Share

The England global scored four goals in the 6-1 thrashing of Leicester to move clear of the goalscoring charts and is in line to claim his second successive Golden Boot.

The England worldwide is in line to collect his second Golden Boot in a row and is only the fifth player since the Premier League began to score 25 or more goals in successive seasons, following in the footsteps of Robbie Fowler, Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Robin van Persie.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane is "one of the best strikers in the world", and insists the club can keep their best players this summer.

Kane can wrap up the golden boot by getting on the scoresheet again in Tottenham's final game at Hull on Sunday and he is already hungry for more after his first professional four-goal haul.

"I was hoping to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the next game".

Kane told the club's website afterwards: "Obviously going into this game there has been a lot of talk about the Golden Boot and I wanted to just make sure I was in the mix for the last day of the season". The England worldwide scored four goals away to Leicester last night to move top of the pile heading into the final weekend of the season.

"To score 30-plus goals again is a big achievement for me and one I'm very proud of".

"We will keep the players that we want to keep", Pochettino said.

'They are happy here as we are building an exciting project'.

"I think the pressure was down, we enjoyed the night".

Tottenham challenged Leicester for the title last season, before eventually finishing third.

Kane has now scored more club goals against Leicester than any other side (10).

Christian Fuchs was caught out by Toby Alderweireld's deep ball which allowed Son to burst into the area and, with Fuchs trailing behind, he teed up Kane to sweep in from six yards.

As the Premier League entered the home straight last season, it was a two horse race with Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspurs duking it out for the title. It ended; Leicester 1 - 6 Tottenham.

Even in the dying stages of the game, with the result a foregone conclusion and a further three points in the bag, Kane was still at his incessant best; terrorising and harassing the Leicester backline in search of his hat-trick and then, remarkably, a fourth.

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

Since winning in their first ever Premier League encounter, Hull are without a win in their last eight games against Tottenham (D2 L6). The best bet is the over 2.5 goals since Spurs will be a on a frenzy and so will Hull City since neither have anything to lose in the match.
