Harry Kane was at his devastating best in the Premier League Thursday as he bagged four goals in Tottenham’s 6-1 mauling of former champions Leicester City.
The England striker’s scintillating quartet fired him top of the scorers’ chart with 26 goals – two ahead of erstwhile leading scorer Romelu Lukaku – going into the final day of the season.
Spurs may have fallen short in their Premier League title challenge this season as Chelsea reclaimed their crown, but Mauricio Pochettino’s vibrant young side look certain to bounce back stronger next season with Kane as the arrowhead.
Son Heung-Min bagged a brace as Spurs swept to their 11th win in their last 12 league games to leave the King Power stadium stunned after Ben Chilwell had briefly reduced the deficit in the second half.
It was a fast and furious start to the game at Leicestershire, with Kane and Son missing chances to put the visitors ahead while Jamie Vardy also missed a clear chance to open the scoring having been played through by Riyad Mahrez,
Kane had been a menace all through, and deservedly shot Spurs ahead in the 25th minute, latching onto a cut back from Son following a ball out of the back from Jan Vertonghen.
Son made it 2-0 before the break after collecting Dele Alli’s chipped pass and beating Leicester goalie Kasper Schmeichel from range.
The Foxes pulled one back through Chilwell, but Kane restored his side’s two-goal advantage by reacting quickest to a loose ball in the area.
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.
