Premier League Kane moves into top gear to become leading scorer

England global Kane moved to 26 in the top flight for this season - putting him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the Golden Boot standings - while Son took his tally to 21 goals in all competitions in the emphatic victory.

And there was enough time for Kane to take his tally to four and move top of the league's goalscoring charts outright. I've worked with Kane and Alli and they've progressed well as a team.

"There has been a bit of build-up on the race for the golden boot and I wanted at least one or two to put the pressure on but to get four is awesome", Kane said.

"We will keep the players that we want to keep", he said.

"Like always every summer, it's possible that something happens [that is] unseen but I think we are so, so, so calm about our key players. They are happy here, we have an exciting project".

Pochettino's team have played some excellent football at times this season, as shown by the fact that they have created 469 chances in the Premier League, while they have scored 73 goals.

Spurs continued to push for more goals in the remaining stages of the first half, but Schmeicel produced two saves in the closing stages.

Tottenham face Hull City away on the final day of the season, while Sanchez and Lukaku will come up against each other at the Emirates.

The victory had little outcome for Spurs who are guaranteed second place, although Leicester's 18th defeat of the season equalled Liverpool's top-flight record, set in 1906-07, for reigning champions in a 38-game campaign. The England worldwide scored four goals away to Leicester last night to move top of the pile heading into the final weekend of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino put out a strong Tottenham side despite having second place already secured, and though they had much of the play early on, the first chance fell to Leicester.

Leicester: Schmeichel 6, Simpson 5, Benalouane 5, Fuchs 5, Chilwell 6, Mahrez 5, Ndidi 6, Amartey 6, Albrighton 6, Okazaki 5, Vardy 6.

Leicester was on the back foot instantly when Son shot over before Jamie Vardy fired straight at Lloris.

Kane opened the scoring before Son Heung-min added a second before the break.

Tottenham: Lloris 6, Dier 7, Alderweireld 8, Vertonghen 7, Davies 7, Wanyama 7, Dembele 7, Sissoko 6, Alli 8, Son 9, Kane 10.

25' - GOAL! Leicester 0-1 Spurs.

The away side were utterly dominant in the first-half but somehow could not find the target for a second time despite bossing possession and camping in the Foxes' half.

Although he may not win the Golden Boot this year, he'll be going all out to score against Everton and then should feature in the FA Cup final too.

That took him from two behind to two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

With Kane leading the charge, there's no Spurs have the quality to be champions. It was no more than Son deserved as neat footwork gave him space on the edge of the box and he curled low beyond Schmeichel.

With Leicester's minds turning to their post-season holidays, Kane had acres of space to pilage the hosts' defence and he completed his hat-trick with a superb 20-yard strike in the 89th minute. 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 was from the third goal which really disappointed me".
