Kane joins exclusive league of Premier League top scorers

Mauricio Pochettino was effusive in his praise after Thursday night's pulsating 6-1 victory, labelling Kane as "one of the best in the world".

Tottenham Hotspur's Dutch striker Vincent Janssen jumps over Leicester City's Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during the English Premier League football match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur at King Power Stadium in Leicester, central England on Friday. "They have a strict wage structure there as we know and sometime to progress you have to move that a little bit to attract the better 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.

Pochettino said: "Harry Kane's a special player, he loves Tottenham".

"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. "His performances show that we are right", he added.

Harry Kane is in line to finish as the Premier League's top goal scorer for the second season in a row.

Harry Kane scored four times as Tottenham produced another superb performance to sweep aside Leicester City.

Son's double means that he has become the third Spurs player to reach the 20-goal mark this season with Kane and Dele Alli.

'I was looking to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the last game, now I'm in the driving seat at the minute but there's still one game to play so I'm not resting on my laurels.

Since winning in their first ever Premier League encounter, Hull are without a win in their last eight games against Tottenham (D2 L6).

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. He will have another opportunity to score more against Hull.

"The team has worked so hard in the last three seasons to settle on principles and play how we play".

Son then added his second of the game, producing a fine curling effort as the north Londoners cut through the Leicester backline. "It's not just about the goals he's scored, it's the way he competes in all areas, he's a team player, he's fantastic in the dressing room".

But Spurs regained their two-goal cushion just four minutes later through Kane, nodding home from close range after Moussa Sissoko had headed the ball back across goal from a Toby Alderweireld cross.

Hull City will want to win to give their fans a good farewell to the Premier League.
