Kane scores 4 as EPL runner-up Tottenham routs Leicester 6-1

19 Mai 2017

The England striker moved two clear of Everton's Romelu Lukaku thanks to a stunning solo display of ruthless finishing that took his tally to 26 top-flight strikes for the season.

A serious injury wrecked Fekir's 2015-16 season, but fortunately, he has made a full recovery, starring in Lyon's run to the Europa League semi-finals, by scoring four goals, providing three assists and completing a staggering 18/23 (78%) take on attempts.

To score four goals was very good for him.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said he has no concerns about holding on to Kane during the summer transfer window.

But Pochettino insists Tottenham are not in a position to sell any player who they see as important to the squad.

'We are so, so calm about our key players.

"So I changed it at half-time and for 10 to 15 minutes we actually caused them problems, but the disappointing thing for me when we scored the third goal I didn't see enough desire to defend as a team and it really drained us of any belief".

"They opened us up and punished us". Son has 21 goals in all competitions this season.

Pochettino joined Tottenham from Southampton in 2014 and has since led the club to third and an all but confirmed second-placed finish in the Premier League.

Man. City is hot on the heels of Tottenham after their big win against Leicester on Saturday Night, and pulled within striking distance of the Spurs.

Kane scored 25 times to clinch the golden boot last season and is on course to defend his personal title with Pochettino praising the 23-year-old.

Shakespeare was seen as the ideal stop gap following the sacking of Ranieri, but he has quickly won over the fans, dressing room and media, all of whom now see him as a long-term option for Leicester.

Apart from an error from Hugo Lloris which allowed Ben Chilwell to score, Tottenham were always on top with Leicester now destined to finish mid-table. Firstly, Jamie Vardy was denied before Wilfried Ndidi saw his deflected shot saved well by the Frenchman. Son snares his second of the contest with a low shot into the far corner from 20 yards after Kane had fed him from on the counter attack.

Spurs were stung by that goal and put Leicester to the sword from then on. 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.

Spurs now have 83 points points heading into their final game of the season on Sunday.

Spurs were still posing a threat up the other end but just before the hour mark, Leicester halved the deficit through Chilwell, who kept his composure inside the penalty area after Lloris had failed to reach the ball outside of his box.
