Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez hunt Harry Kane in late Golden Boot showdown

Rita Gibson | 22 May, 2017, 22:34

Spurs ran rampant at the King Power Stadium, with the win ensuring that the Lilywhites had exceeded the Foxes' winning total from last season - and Kane took his tally to 26 league goals for the season.

Kane scored four times, a career first, in Thursday's 6-1 hammering of Leicester City to move onto 26 goals for the season - two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot, with one match to play.

Tottenham star Harry Kane has set his sights on a century of Premier League goals as he closes in on this season's Golden Boot.

Pochettino said: "It's awesome, unbelievable, fantastic and a big achievement for him". We are so calm about our key players. We are all very happy. So there is still all to play for in my eyes but I could not have dreamt of scoring four. There's no reason for players like Harry to leave the club. He means a lot for the team. We want to show we're ready for a new challenge.

Although Sam Clucas pulled one back for Hull midway through the second period, Victor Wanyama, Kane, Ben Davies' thunderbolt and Toby Alderweireld turned the final game of the season into a rout.

Horschel edges Day in Nelson playoff — Sunday's roundup
The victory on Sunday came in Horschel's 166th tour start. "I haven't played here in five years", said Horschel. The man does not wont for emotion. "It was exactly where I wanted to hit it", Hahn said after finishing third.

Kane has achieved the third-best minutes-per-goal rate (94.3) of any player in the league this season, behind only Michy Batshuayi of Chelsea and Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City. It is a season again where he fights to be the top scorer in the Premier League. "It was hard because we conceded the goal but the team tried to keep going and I think we fully deserved it".

When asked why Kane was taken off near the end of Spurs' victory over Hull, Pochettino said: "It was a moment to take responsibility and a good decision and I prefer that next season he challenges again, to score 30 goals".

His struggles with injury this season could have quite easily hampered his form, confidence and abilities, but the forward's stomping return to the game after two sizeable lay-offs during the season bears testament to an inner resilience and self-belief - qualities that mark some of the sport's very best.

Having thrashed Leicester 6-1 in midweek, Spurs seemed content with their lot at the start of the second half, but Clucas' deflected strike beating Lloris only served to reawaken them.
