Harry Kane was at his devastating best in the Premier League Thursday as he bagged four goals in Tottenham's 6-1 mauling of former champions Leicester City.

England global Kane moved to 26 in the top flight for this season - putting him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the Golden Boot standings - while Son took his tally to 21 goals in all competitions in the emphatic victory. Won the Golden Boot last season with 25 and has hit 26 this term despite missing three months of this campaign with injury. I hope he can win.

Mauricio Pochettino insists there is no chance Harry Kane will be allowed to leave Tottenham after his "special" striker's four-goal blitz in the 6-1 rout of Leicester.

"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. We are so calm about our key players.

The 30-year-old has had to play second fiddle to Alexis Sanchez this season, but has still managed 12 Premier League goals.

Heung-Min Son scored a brace to take his season's total to 21, meaning Spurs now have three players surpassing the 20-goal mark with Kane and Dele Alli. His first goal moved him past Cha Bum-Kun to become the highest-scoring South Korean player in a European season.

Riyad Mahrez's performance for Leicester City against Tottenham Hotspur last night appears to have drawn a mixed reaction from supporters of the North London club.

The England forward's haul moved him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Premier League's golden boot with 26 goals ahead of Sunday's season-finale at Hull. Young left-back Ben Chillwell took advantage of Hugo Lloris scrambling to get back in goal to calmly finish down the middle.

Son's movement was too clever for Leicester again moments later as he turned quickly and shot over. With Fuchs trailing behind, Son teed up Kane to sweep in from six yards.

Kane wasn't finished yet and he produced a carbon copy of his third goal in stoppage-time, driving home from the edge of the area to put the seal on his goalscoring masterclass.

The hosts were enterprising enough but, aside from Vardy's pace, rarely troubled the visitors who doubled their lead in style 10 minutes before the break.

The away side were utterly dominant in the first-half but somehow could not find the target for a second time despite bossing possession and camping in the Foxes' half.

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.
