Kane Nets Four As Spurs Humiliate Leicester

Pochettino GFX

Kane, meanwhile, is now two goals ahead of Romelu Lukaku at the top of the scoring charts with one round of matches left to play.

"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".

It was clear early on what the Foxes tactic was in the game as they looked to counter on Spurs but when the visitors hit their stride in the game they were unplayable at times.

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.

Tottenham dominated possession and Son provided Kane with the opener in the 25th minute.

The defeat, Leicester's 18th of a miserable title defence, saw them miss out on the chance to draw level on points with eighth-place Southampton and did little to enhance manager Craig Shakespeare's chances of holding on to the job for next term.

Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has insisted that he and his teammates will not mirror West Ham United when they move stadium for next season.

Tottenham, already guaranteed to finish second, now have more points than Leicester won the league with last season, but if Pochettino's players were frustrated at falling short in the title race, they haven't let it show.

"We have a very exciting project, there's no reasons for Kane to want to leave the club", he said.

He explained: "Next season and during the summer we need to find a way to inspire [the players], to motivate them to push further in our performances and to find different ways to play".

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

Spurs finish at relegated Hull City with Kane now red-hot favourite retain his crown as the league's top scorer.

Kane spoke of his desire to boost his numbers at King Power Stdium and is equally determined to add to his tally on the final day of the season and clinch a second Golden Boot in a row.

"It was probably one of the best performances of the season".

90' - GOAL! Leicester 1-6 Spurs.

Ben Chilwell did manage to reduce the deficit just before the hour mark as the ball fell kindly to him after Lloris had rushed out of his goal to deny Jamie Vardy. "We want to win our last two games, that is important", Pochettino is quoted by BBC Sport.

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.
