Kane moves into top gear to be leading scorer

King remains one of the most popular figures at Spurs even after he was forced to prematurely retire at the age of 31 in 2012 due to ongoing knee problems. But it's true that Harry Kane is our main striker and one of the best in the world.

The England man opened the scoring before restoring Tottenham's two-goal lead just as Leicester threatened to get back into the game before two late strikes.

Tottenham, already guaranteed to finish second, now have more points than Leicester won the league with last season, but if Pochettino's players were frustrated at falling short in the title race, they haven't let it show.

Kane became the fifth Tottenham player to score four in a game, joining Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov and Jurgen Klinsmann.

Many of their key players have been attracting admiring glances, yet Kane is unmoved by such talk given Spurs' trajectory makes them as attractive as nearly anyone.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min accounted for all of Tottenham's goals on Thursday night. Despite a disappointing title defense, Leicester could still finish around where people were projecting them to finish before the season. The Englishman may at times get overshadowed by the more mercurial talents of Dele Alli, the genius of Christian Eriksen, and the all-around play of Son, but he is undoubtedly a brilliant player in his own right, and he comes up with decisive moments.

The midfielder worked it to Chilwell, who managed to squeeze the ball beyond Dier on the line - only for Kane to immediately restore Spurs' two-goal advantage to spark a rout.

We're young but we're getting more experience year in, year out.

"You don't have a decision to make unless you get an offer, and we haven't had an offer for any one of our players", Shakespeare said of the transfer talk.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said he was unsure whether the humbling defeat would affect his chances of staying in the role for next season.

For him it's a season to fight to try to be the top scorer in the Premier League.

"I don't know, you'll have to ask the owners about that", he said. "Now he has to try and keep going in the next game and try to finish in the best way and then look forward to next season". So I think this is fantastic.
