Kane has already turned his attention to 2017-18, targeting 100 goals as he now sits on 75 Premier League strikes.

The prolific England striker was at his scintillating best on Thursday night (18 May) as he notched four goals to help Spurs thrash Leicester 6-1 at the King Power Stadium. Despite missing three months of the season through injury, Kane has netted 32 times in all competitions.

Kane has now scored 96 goals for Spurs at the age of just 23, and is the first Tottenham player since Jimmy Greaves in 1968/69 to score four hat-tricks in a season.

"Going into the game two behind, I was hoping to get one or two last night and keep myself in the race for Sunday, so to get four and win 6-1, I couldn't have dreamed of that".

Mauricio Pochettino says he sees no reason for striker, Harry Kane to leave White Hart Lane in the transfer window. We showed that in nearly every game this year.

"I used to play in a great Ajax team and we spoke about keeping the lads together to win trophies. They are happy here, we have an exciting project". His first goal moved him past Cha Bum-Kun to become the highest-scoring South Korean player in a European season.

Kane will now fancy his chances of winning consecutive Golden Boot crowns as he readies himself for an away encounter with relegated Hull City.

Chelsea has taken the trophy off Leicester, which astonishingly won the title last season but collapsed this year and is now 11th.

A nearly perfect transfer campaign

Already assured of second-place in the league table, the Lilywhites could have been forgiven for taking it easy but against last season's champions, they turned on the style in the final 30 minutes.

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

The victory had little effect for Spurs who are guaranteed second place, although Leicester's 18th defeat of the season equalled Liverpool's top-flight record, set in 1906-07, for reigning champions in a 38-game campaign.

A mistake from Hugo Lloris allowed Leicester back into the contest as he was punished by Ben Chilwel for the host's sole goal in the 59th minute.

The first goal came in the 25th minute when Kane latched on to a precise pass deep inside the box from Son, and he beat Kasper Schemichel with a low accurate shot into the bottom left corner.

Alternating goals like it was a day at the training park, the dynamic duo - with the help of Dele Alli - were too much for Leicester to handle.

It was a break they needed as Dier needed to produce a fine block to deny Marc Albrighton and the quiet Riyad Mahrez fired at Lloris before Chilwell pulled a goal back after 57 minutes.
