Kane Scores Four As Spurs Dismantle Leicester 6-1
Harry Kane scored four times as Tottenham produced another superb performance to sweep aside Leicester City.
Although Tottenham were unable to overhaul champions Chelsea in the title race, Mauricio Pochettino’s vibrant young side look certain to make a renewed challenge next term and Kane is the figurehead of that bright future.
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 for the campaign – two clear of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.
Everton’s Romelu Lukaku is second on 24 goals but Kane is well on course to nail down the goalscoring prize heading into Tottenham’s final fixture at Hull on Sunday.
South Korea’s Son Heung-min also scored fine goals either side of half-time, volleying in Dele Alli’s masterful pass, and bending in from 25 yards after a swift counter-attack.
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 didn’t show any signs.
