Kane scores four as EPL runner-up Tottenham routs Leicester 6-1

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. How many would he have gotten without those setbacks - and, the more tantalizing question, would the title race still be on if Kane hadn't missed time through injury?

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has targeted reaching 100 Premier League goals by the end of next season, and says he can make a fast start next year after a rare summer off.

"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 wonderful".

"It is very clear we will keep the players we want to keep". "Maybe we will sell the players that we want to sell".

Jamie Carragher thinks Tottenham need a player on the right-hand side with "blistering pace" to take them on to the next level.

Kane's highest number of goals has come this season despite a couple of spells out through injury which means he has scored 26 goals in just 29 league games.

England global Kane, who hopes to add to his tally at relegated Hull on Sunday, said: "I've been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet this week". "The team worked so hard in the last pre-season to try to first of all settle the principles and play how we play". They have a tough game against Arsenal.

Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur will have to rely on unearthing more players like Dele Alli rather than spending huge fees on transfers if they are to compete with their Premier League rivals.

Tottenham challenged Leicester for the title last season, before eventually finishing third.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare faces talks with the club's Thai owners next week to decide if he will remain in charge and this thrashing was hardly the ideal way to sell his credentials.

Until Kane's two late goals, he arguably wasn't even the standout player of the match - Son had a brilliant first half and added a second goal in the second half (from a Kane run and assist, it should be said). With Fuchs trailing behind, Son teed up Kane to sweep in from six yards.

Spurs were stung by that goal and put Leicester to the sword from then on.

The hosts were enterprising enough but, aside from Vardy's pace, rarely troubled the visitors who doubled their lead in style 10 minutes before the break.

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.

Dier needed to produce a fine block to deny Marc Albrighton and the quiet Riyad Mahrez fired at Lloris before Chilwell pulled a goal back in the 59th.
