EPL: Harry Kane hits four, Tottenham Hotspur decimate Leicester City

Niall Quinn

With Chelsea already confirmed victor of the title, Tottenham took vengeance on the Foxes at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night, May 16, to move to 83 points after 37 matches.

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.

"We will keep the players that we want to keep", he said. We are so calm about our key players.

That is exactly what they did at the beginning of the second half as they started very well and they got their reward for their positive start as they got themselves back into the game.

"We feel so proud of Harry, to score four goals was fantastic", Pochettino said. There's no reason for players like Harry to leave the club.

"First and foremost, we wanted to come here and put in a good performance and win", he told Sky Sports after Thursday's big win.

Kane is odds on to finish as the Premier League's top scorer for the second successive season thanks to his lethal display at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.

"To be fair when he was injured, other players scored goals, like Son, or (Dele) Alli or (Christian) Eriksen".

Will Smith, Almodovar open a testy Cannes Film Festival
In my house Netflix has been nothing but an absolute benefit because they get to watch films that they never would have seen. Smith launched a spirited defence of Netflix, saying it "broadens my children's cinematic global comprehension".

"Going into the game two behind, I was hoping to get one or two last night and keep myself in the race for Sunday, so to get four and win 6-1, I couldn't have dreamed of that".

After collapsing in the final furlong last season, Tottenham have largely handled the pressures of the title race better this time.

Assuming Kane doesn't score against Hull on Sunday, he would need to score 25 goals next season to hit 100 career league goals, at age 24. Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare: "The disappointing thing for me when they scored their third is that I didn't see enough desire from my team and it really drained us of any belief".

Even in the dying stages of the game, with the result a foregone conclusion and a further three points in the bag, Kane was still at his incessant best; terrorising and harassing the Leicester backline in search of his hat-trick and then, remarkably, a fourth.

Tottenham, who are guaranteed to finish second place this season, took on the team to whom they lost out on the Premier League title a year ago on Thursday night. It ended; Leicester 1 - 6 Tottenham.

Any hopes of a Foxes fightback were extinguished soon after as Kane restored their two-goal advantage from a delicious cross from Toby Alderweireld. That's the one position, but I don't know who it is.

With Spurs now in the middle of constructing a new 61,000-seater stadium, chairman Daniel Levy is likely to hand Pochettino a considerably smaller transfer budget in comparison to the rest of the Premier League's elite.
