Four-goal Kane helps Spurs punish Leicester

Harry Kane

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder and BBC Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas says Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino must strengthen his attack this summer if the club is to have any chance of competing for the Premier League title again, and believes a Monaco star would be the ideal addition. "They are an excellent side, I knew that before the game, but obviously we were totally second best".

"I was looking to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the last game, now I'm in the driving seat at the minute but there's still one game to play so I'm not resting on my laurels".

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.

Who will win the battle for the Premier League golden boot?

Son beat the offside trap to latch onto a simple long ball from Toby Alderweireld, moved into the penalty area and cut the ball back for Kane, who slotted home first time from 12 yards out.

Kane, 23, also became only the fifth player to score three or more hat-tricks in a single season in the top-flight.

Kane scored four as Tottenham blitzed last season's champions 6-1 in front of their own stunned fans.

The Englishman netted twice from close range before repeating the feat from 20 yards in the closing minutes as he bolstered his tally to 26 league goals for the campaign.

"I felt good, Leicester made it tough for us, they put the pressure on to get the goal back, but to get that third goal was vital and the game opened up".

Son, Alli and Kane were relentless, epitomising Spurs' quality and work rate.

Harry Kane scores Tottenham's third goal against Leicester. Subs: Vincent Janssen (for Son, 78 mins) 6, Filip Lesniak (for Dembele, 86 mins) 6, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou (for Sissoko, 90 mins) 6.
