Harry Kane scores FOUR as Tottenham hit Leicester for six

Share

The Tottenham striker hit four in Spurs' 6-1 win at Leicester on Thursday to move two clear of Romelu Lukaku in the race to be this season's top scorer.

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. In 1992-93, Teddy Sheringham scored 22 league goals. It was stated that Kane could cost as much as Griezmann's £86m ($111m) release clause.

Slaven Bilic's side now sit 12th in the Premier League table with a final-day fixture away to Burnley left to play.

He turned provider for Tottenham's fourth goal in the 71st minute by setting up Son to finish coolly past Schmeichel, before grabbing a late double to round off a sensational attacking display.

Leicester basically allowed Spurs to have shooting practice towards the end of the game, and Kane didn't need further invitation, coolly finishing from just outside the box with a strike that left Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel wrong-footed.

The 2016/2017 English Premier league winners Chelsea will be crowned champions on Sunday, May 21 when they host the already relegated Sunderland at the Stamford Bridge.

His struggles with injury this season could have quite easily hampered his form, confidence and abilities, but the forward's stomping return to the game after two sizeable lay-offs during the season bears testament to an inner resilience and self-belief - qualities that mark some of the sport's very best.

"For us to keep our best players, a lot of clubs are interested in them, but the players we want to keep will be here next season", the Spurs boss was quoted as saying by the BBC.

Spurs have only conceded two goals in their last six Premier League games against Hull City, keeping clean sheets in each of their last two.

"I'm sure he is not too happy but there is one game to go and I'm sure he'll be determined to try to score a hat trick on Sunday. I hope he can win (the Golden Boot)".

A US defence official said the convoy had not responded to numerous warnings that it was "getting too close to coalition forces". The convoy was hit on Thursday as it neared a group of US-backed rebels and a Western special forces unit in Tanf.

"No", he told Sky Sports when asked if his biggest worry as a coach was that a bigger club would try and sign a player like Kane.

"I always talk about the right-hand side, but who can you get to go straight in?"

"I don't know, you'll have to ask the owners about that", he said. No other Premier League club has matched that feat. It is something I will have to look at but as players, to a man, since I have been in charge, they have been excellent and I have not seen that before.

"It's more than I've had in the past so I'll make the most of it. Getting away is not so much a physical rest as a mental one. I will keep myself fit and have a good break on the beach".
