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.
Harry Kane took his tally in the Premier League to 26 goals this season after netting four goals against Leicester City as Tottenham Hotspur humilated the Foxes at the King Power Stadium.
Meanwhile, Kane's haul moved him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Premier League's golden boot award with 26 goals ahead of Sunday's season-finale against Hull City.
"We are so, so calm about our key players".
'They are happy here as we are building an exciting project'.
'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.
Pochettino's men though did get a second goal when yet again another lovely passing move saw Alli play a great lobbed pass through to Son, who on this occasion volleyed the ball home to put his side well in control of the game.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Sportsmail columnist Jamie Carragher said: 'All strikers who say it's all about the three points are all liars.
Six of his 24 goals have been scored with his head, while he has also shown his proficiency with both feet as 11 strikes have been with his left and seven with his right. The quartet of Kane, Dele Alli, Son and Christian Eriksen have scored 86 of Spurs 110 total goals this season. I hope he can win.
Since winning in their first ever Premier League encounter, Hull are without a win in their last eight games against Tottenham (D2 L6).
That race is all that could be decided on Sunday in this game, however, with Spurs facing an already-relegated Hull safe in the knowledge that they will definitely finish second. So I think this is fantastic.
"I wouldn't be able to say yes or no but hopefully I can stay fit for the majority of next season and we can go and get that league title". You know better than me it is so hard.
"We were talking about last season when we finished so bad".
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.
"The big thing for Tottenham, if you go through the team in every position, is who can you get who is better and replaces who you have got?"
Although he may not win the Golden Boot this year, he'll be going all out to score against Everton and then should feature in the FA Cup final too.
