Kane leads Premier League golden boot race after hitting four at Leicester

"It's a season where again he fights for to be the top scorer in the Premier League", he told Sky Sports of Kane.

Heung-Min Son netted a brace in that rout of Leicester, meaning that three different Tottenham players have now netted 20+ goals in a single season for the first time in club history.

The England global now has 26 goals, putting him two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku with one game remaining in the race for the golden boot.

Lukaku has 24 league goals this term, the most for Everton in a top-flight season since Gary Lineker struck 30 in 1985-86, but has not scored in his last four appearances.

Only Robbie Fowler, Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie have previously scored 25 goals in consecutive seasons in the Premier League.

It was the kind of predatory performance that Pochettino believes further enhances Kane's reputation as one of the world's best finishers.

"We have to play Hull away and I'll be looking for a couple of goals there too".

Tottenham's Harry Kane celebrates after completing his hat trick with Filip Lesniak against Leicester at King Power Stadium Thursday.

"We're building a very exciting project".

A nearly perfect transfer campaign

"Harry is in good form, we hope he keeps that form for the next few games".

“It is very clear we will keep the players we want to keep and we will maybe sell the players we want to sell, ” said Pochettino.

The victory had little outcome 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.

With nine goals and 13 assists in the English Premier League this season, Sigurdsson has been one of the stand-outs across the entire division, despite playing for a club who were mired in a relegation battle for most of the campaign.

Harry Kane scored four times as Tottenham produced another superb performance to sweep aside Leicester City.

And the tie was dead and buried in the 70th minute when Spurs once again showed their ruthlessness, with Son using Kane's run on the left as a decoy before displaying great feet and firing his long-range effort past Kasper Schmeichel into the bottom-right corner.

"I expect to see goals at the Emirates with the hosts getting the lion's share".

"I have to take some responsibility for that after changing the formation. if you get beat 6-1, there's no positives".
