Tottenham Hotspur put in a masterful performance on Thursday night to beat outgoing Premier League champions Leicester City 6-1 at the King Power Stadium.
England global Kane, who hopes to add to his tally against relegated Hull on Sunday, told Sky Sports 1: "I've been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet this week".
"I've got to get out there against Hull and try and score more goals".
"Hopefully I can get the Golden Boot and hopefully Hugo Lloris can get the Golden Glove". Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare: "The disappointing thing for me when they scored their third is that I didn't see enough desire from my team and it really drained us of any belief".
Tottenham, who are guaranteed to finish second place this season, took on the team to whom they lost out on the Premier League title past year on Thursday night.
However, Kane's header in the 63rd minute and a brilliant second goal from Son just eight minutes later ended the Foxes' resistance.
Kane will enter the final day of the season on Sunday in pole position to finish as top scorer, with the striker now on 26 league goals - two more than Everton's Romelu Lukaku.
Vardy saw appeals for a penalty waved away when Alderweireld shouldered him to the ground after an error from Eric Dier, and it got worse for Leicester before the break, Alli clipping the ball over Yohan Benalouane and Son steering a volley into the bottom-right corner to make it 2-0. Harry Kane is our main striker and he is one of the best in the world. "I think he's a striker that it is hard to find another striker in the world like him", Pochettino told a postmatch news conference. To be fair to him and the team, it's a very good collective effort throughout the whole season but we feel so proud of Harry. He will try to keep going in the next game and try to finish in the best way.
Kane has been in superb form for Spurs for the past three seasons and seems to be improving with each and every passing year. "They are happy here, we have an exciting project".
That inspiration was left down to the club's academy product, Harry Kane, who struck four goals during the match.
