Kane leads Premier League golden foot competition after attack 4 during Leicester

Harry Kane

Harry Kane has now scored 51 joining goals in a past dual seasons

Harry Kane scored 4 times as Tottenham constructed another glorious opening to brush aside Leicester City.

Though Chelsea finished their Premier League pretension hopes final week, there was no let-up from Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who won for a 25th time in a joining this season.

Kane helped himself to dual rapacious goals from tighten operation before rattling in twice from 20 yards in a final few mins to pierce to 26 joining goals for a debate – dual transparent of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.

Son Heung-min also scored excellent goals possibly side of half-time, volleying in Dele Alli’s dictatorial pass, and tortuous in from 25 yards after a quick counter-attack.

Leicester, who are nonetheless to make a preference on manager Craig Shakespeare’s future, played their partial in an interesting game.

Ben Chilwell momentarily sparked hopes of a fightback by creation it 2-1, though a Foxes eventually had no answer to this in-form Tottenham side, who available their biggest divided win in a Premier League.

Brilliant Spurs pierce ‘dead rubber’ to life

This, a 13th Premier League matchday in 18 May days, was effectively another passed rubber. But, while a joining has unsuccessful to broach a tighten pretension competition a radio schedulers were anticipating for, no censure can be trustworthy to Tottenham.

Spurs have won 12 of their past 13 joining games and have been kept during brook usually by a conspicuous resilience of Chelsea, who ensured it has been a box of ‘nearly’ for Pochettino and his players for a second deteriorate in a row.

Son Heung-min has now scored 20 goals for Tottenham in all competitions this season

Third final deteriorate notwithstanding being Leicester’s closest challengers for many of a debate – or, as a home fans enjoyed chanting in a opening stages, “third in a two-horse race” – Spurs have left one improved this time. Much better, in fact.

This widespread win took them past Leicester’s title-winning transport of 81 points, and they have adequate on a house to have won a Premier League on 8 prior occasions – with a diversion still to come.

Son’s glorious strikes meant that – for a initial time in a club’s story – they have 3 players who have scored 20 goals in a season, and took them over 75 joining goals for a initial time given 1984-85.

Add in a division’s meanest counterclaim – Hugo Lloris’ mistake for Chilwell’s idea notwithstanding – and it is no warn Pochettino has committed his destiny to a club.

Do Spurs have enough?

As White Hart Lane is distant and rebuilt, Spurs’ summer seems expected to be flavoured by reports and fears of a group going a same way.

Right-back Kyle Walker – again left out, notwithstanding this time with an ankle problem – has prolonged been linked with a move, and Pochettino certified this week a bar might onslaught to contest with clubs charity outrageous salaries this summer.

That might have sounded alarm bells for supporters, though a good news for them is it would positively take record numbers to prize divided possibly of a side’s climax jewels.

Kane and Alli have scored 43 Premier League goals between them this deteriorate and were superb again, along with Son, in a energetic aggressive display.

Those 3 players alone had 19 efforts on goal, while Alli’s chipped support for Son’s initial idea was serve justification of his flourishing change and inventiveness.

Kane, who tapped in Son’s cranky to open a scoring, combined a close-range header afterwards twice thrashed past Kasper Schmeichel from a dilemma of a area, could turn a initial male given Robin outpost Persie to win a golden foot in unbroken seasons.

There is no doubt Spurs have a peculiarity to be champions. If they can repeat their home form while on ‘holiday’ during Wembley, maybe a wait for a joining pretension will finish after 57 years.

Stage set for Shakespeare’s second act?

Shakespeare pronounced this week he expects to find out if he will sojourn in assign of a Foxes “within days”.

He has positively done a clever box to be retained, though his side’s second-half better contingency be a disappointment, quite as a quip quickly looked probable when Chilwell scored his initial career goal, prodding in after Jamie Vardy had left around an out-of-position Lloris.

A second large preference of a deteriorate now looms for a Leicester hierarchy, who were widely criticised for sacking Claudio Ranieri in February, only months after he delivered a title.

They contingency positively cruise themselves vindicated, notwithstanding such a complicated defeat. The Foxes were one indicate above a relegation section when Shakespeare took over with 13 matches left though survived simply interjection to 7 wins in Shakespeare’s 12 joining games.

In fact, had a deteriorate begun when he took over, Leicester would once again be forgetful of Europe.
