Kane scores four as Spurs thrash Leicester

Spurs trio Kane Alli and Son post best goal figure in English football

Kane is hunting the league's golden boot and the England striker was at his predatory best as he plundered the Leicester defence four times to move to the top of the scoring charts with 26 goals.

He has climbed to the top the tally with 26 goals in the season, two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

Carragher said on Sky Sports. Kane had not finished when he scored again in stoppage time, with nearly a carbon copy of his third, beating Schmeichel low to his right from the edge of the area.

"It is the first time in my professional career that I've scored four, there has been a bit of build-up in the race for the golden boot and I wanted at least one or two to put the pressure on but to get four is incredible".

Son, now the only man to win the EPL Player of the Month award twice in the 2016-17 season, has one more chance to extend his goal scoring record on Sunday when Tottenham visit KCOM Stadium to face Hull City for their final EPL match of the season.

Barring something drastic happening in the last round of this season's Premier League, it seems Harry Kane is already our 2016/17 Golden Boot victor.

The 30-year-old has had to play second fiddle to Alexis Sanchez this season, but has still managed 12 Premier League goals.

Victor Wanyama headed the ball back across goal to find Kane, who nodded in his second of the night and 24th of the season in the 63rd minute.

The 2016/2017 English Premier league winners Chelsea will be crowned champions on Sunday, May 21 when they host the already relegated Sunderland at the Stamford Bridge.

A number of Tottenham Hotspur players have been linked with moves away from the club in the summer transfer window. Leicester basically allowed Spurs to have shooting practice towards the end of the game, and Kane didn't need further invitation, coolly finishing from just outside the box with a strike that left Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel wrong-footed. Harry Winks, who was showing great promise, damaged ankle ligaments at Burnley on April 1 and was ruled out for the season.

It will be a remarkable individual season for the Spurs striker even as his team will finish bereft of a single trophy, but will be taking many positives for next year. "Maybe we will sell the players that we want to sell". We took a big risk on Dele Alli and now he is a massive player, one of the most important in England.

Tottenham had gone 13 consecutive matches without a draw and Leicester's promising start in the first half seemed to suggest that they could get a decent result in the penultimate game before the final day of the season.

"It's hard, the England games are right in the middle of June so I still don't get a whole summer, but it is what it is", said Kane. "He will try to keep going in the next game and try to finish in the best way. It's not for me to answer that". They don't have too many players who can make that run in behind.

"We haven't had many performances like that", he added. They looked like scoring every time.

"Hopefully this is a one-off".
