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

It is the first time in my professional career that I've done that, 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.

England worldwide 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.

The England man opened the scoring before restoring Tottenham's two-goal lead just as Leicester threatened to get back into the game before two late strikes.

All of Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane have one final game at the weekend with two goals separating Kane and Lukaku.

England worldwide Kane, who hopes to add to his tally against relegated Hull on Sunday, told Sky Sports: "I've been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet this week".

"To score four for the first time, it's a good time to do it". But now I'm in the driving seat. To be fair to him and the team, it's a very good collective effort throughout the whole season but we feel so proud of Harry.

Son found the bottom corner from a Dele Alli flick over Leicester's defence to double Tottenham's tally in the 36th minute.

Despite the fact that Spurs are yet to win the Premier League, the stature and size of the club meant that the neutral wanted to see the Leicester "fairytale" come to fruition.

The hat trick was also the fifth of his career in the Premier League.

Son Heung-Min scored Tottenham's other two goals, his 20th and 21st of the season. "Every player really enjoyed the game", said Son. "He will try to keep going in the next game and try to finish in the best way". "Maybe we will sell the players that we want to sell. They are happy here, we have an exciting project".

Donald Trump admits he gave info to Russian Federation : 'I had every right'
Many have noted that Trump, as president, is legally allowed to essentially disclose classified information to whomever he wants. The information Trump shared was given to the United States by an ally and was not approved to be shared with the Russians.


Spurs' win - their biggest away from home in the league since April 1989 - moved them on to 83 points, two more than Leicester managed when they won the title a year ago.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said he was unsure whether the humbling defeat would affect his chances of staying in the role for next season. He's one of the best strikers in the world. "It's not for me to answer that".

And there was enough time for Kane to take his tally to four and move top of the league's goalscoring charts outright.

"We haven't had many performances like that", he added.

"Hopefully we can keep a clean sheet on Sunday".
