With Tottenham playing already-relegated Hull on Sunday and Lukaku and Sanchez facing off when Arsenal host Everton the same day, Kane is, in his own words, very much "in the driving seat" to take home the Golden Boot award which he also won last season.

Speaking before Spurs clash with Leicester on Thursday, Pochettino said: "We talk about 'if Tottenham are in the Champions League, it will be more attractive.' But then it's all about if you pay or not when we talk about top players".

"The players can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I've said before about their attitude and professionalism and I expect us to have a real good go to finish as high as we can".

Tottenham said an emotional farewell to White Hart Lane on Sunday, with a 2-1 win against Manchester United the ideal send-off for the 118-year stadium before it is demolished it make room for a new arena.

This is only second season in the Premier League.

The Foxes will be without their central defense tonight, as both Robert Huth and Wes Morgan are sidelined due to injuries. However, one has to appreciate the team that Coach Mauricio Pochettino has assembled.

Despite his club being the only one challenging title winners Chelsea come seasons end, Pochettino is realistic with the clubs ability to attract top players, and the wages they bring with them.

With both sides having seen under 2.5 goals in three of their last five games, but also having unsafe attackers, this is probably a market best avoided.

Maguire has impressed thus far this season, despite Hull's problems, and has been heavily linked with a summer exit to a bigger club, with Spurs reportedly interested. "We just have to make sure we finish this season strongly".

To do that, they have to do more than keep their current squad together - they need to invest in it, and strengthen.

After the disappointment at West ham two weeks ago, where they lost 1:0 and lost all hope of the title, they bounced back and defeated Manchester United with 2:1 in the last match at the White Hart Lane, and now they are assured of finishing 2 in the league.

This season, the young talent has scored 21 goals in all competitions and has registered five assists. There are many rumours, but I am committed with the club, no reason to leave the club. Captain Hugo Lloris is the second best keeper in the league, with 15 clean sheets to his name.

Spurs are facing a shortage of full-backs when they visit Leicester on Thursday night after the club announced Danny Rose underwent knee surgery on Tuesday and will miss the rest of the campaign.
