Kane scores 4 as EPL runner-up Tottenham routs Leicester 6-1

Tottenham's Harry Kane, top, celebrates scoring his second goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, England, Thursday, May 18, 2017.

The Everton man has 24 while his rival has 26. The players have shown no signs of letting up, having been the main core of Spurs' success so far.

Son Heung-Min also helped himself to two goals, meaning the South Korean has 20 in all competitions. That amounted to six damaging blows to Craig Shakespeare's prospects of landing the Leicester managerial job on a permanent basis. Ben Chilwell put it 2-1 after the break. "We were totally second-best". The score was down to Spurs' "exceptional slickness" and "bloodlust" rather than any failing on his part.

Pochettino has been linked with jobs away from Spurs, in particular that of FC Barcelona, which is set to be vacated when Luis Enrique departs at the end of the season.

"Our attitude and internal motivation was good".

The victory had little effect for Spurs who are guaranteed second place, although Leicester's 18th defeat of the season equalled Liverpool's top-flight record, set in 1906-07, for reigning champions in a 38-game campaign. "They [the players] have been excellent in the time that I've been in charge".

Harri-kane wrecked Leicester City.

We at The Hard Tackle take a closer look at the fixture.

Spurs began to run amok.

Erdogan: Turkey will not take part in Raqqa offensive
USA officials said this month that the White House had approved supplying arms to the YPG, a decision that caused alarm in Ankara. Still, the State Department said it was expressing "concern" to Turkey over the incident "in the strongest possible terms".

The Englishman may at times get overshadowed by the more mercurial talents of Dele Alli, the genius of Christian Eriksen, and the all-around play of Son, but he is undoubtedly a brilliant player in his own right, and he comes up with decisive moments. He introduced Islam Slimani for Shinji Okazaki and Leicester made a strong start to the second period.

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.

Leicester were on the back foot instantly when Son shot over before Jamie Vardy fired straight at Lloris as Tottenham dominated possession without a serious opening until Son wasted a glorious one after 15 minutes.

Hope of a comeback lasted barely four minutes, however.

There was still time for Kane for netting two more clinical strikes, both from the edge of the box.

Kane was not finished.

Harry Kane's first ever four-goal haul propelled him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts with the Tottenham striker in the "driving seat" to finish top scorer when the final league games are played on Sunday.

"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't", he said.

"We have Hull away and I am looking to get a couple of goals hopefully".
