Match Reports: Leicester City 1-6 Tottenham Hotspur

"When you lose 6-1 there are no positives", he said.

Tottenham's Victor Wanyama, left, and Leicester's Shinji Okazaki battle for the ball 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.

That was enough to guarantee Mauricio Pochettino's side second place in the Premier League and a spot in the Champions League group stage.

Kane opened the scoring for the Lilywhites midway through the first half before Son Heung-min added a second before half-time. Much better, in fact.

Ruthless Harry Kane struck four goals as Tottenham dismantled Leicester 6-1.

Straight from kick off it was clear that both sides were up for the game as they pressed each other with the home side testing Hugo Lloris on two occasions early on.

- Tottenham now have three players with 20-plus goals in all comps this season (Kane, Alli & Son); more than any other club in the Premier League/Football League.

DEADLIEST CATCH Sig Hansen sorry for spitting on Uber driver
Police said they found a foot-sized dent in the fender and some spit on the driver's headrest when they examined the vehicle . Hansen also "kicked the outside of the rear of the passenger side of the vehicle, causing a dent", the report states.

Kane turned provider with around 20 minutes to play as he picked out Son, who still had work to do as he rounded a defender before curling the ball beyond Schmeichel.

Dele Alli's low header was then saved by Kasper Schmeichel as Spurs began to raise the tempo, sensing Leicester were there for the taking.

Son made the win an emphatic one with the best goal of the game.

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.

It was messy from Spurs as Lloris rushed out to beat Vardy to the ball but only succeeded in deflecting it off the striker to Wilfred Ndidi.

Any hopes of a Foxes fightback were extinguished soon after as Kane restored their two-goal advantage from a delicious cross from Toby Alderweireld. It was his fourth hat-trick of the season, a feat not achieved since the days of Jimmy Greaves, and it put Kane one ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the goal-scoring charts. The 23-year-old blasted a low shot from the edge of the area that seemed to fool Schmeichel as it flew beneath him and into the net, before being granted time and space to produce an nearly identical finish to cap a dominant display.
