Four-goal Kane helps Spurs punish Leicester

The in-form Tottenham striker, who has missed his country's last six games through injury, has not netted for England since a match against Turkey on May 22 previous year.

Harry Kane's superb four-goal haul in Tottenham's 6-1 thrashing of Leicester on Thursday night has put the striker on course to retain his Golden Boot award this season.

The England worldwide now has 26 goals, putting him two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku with one game remaining in the race for the golden boot.

"It is the first time in my professional career that I've scored four, there has been a bit of build-up in the race for the golden boot and I wanted at least one or two to put the pressure on - but to get four is wonderful".

"It is going to be a lively game", he added. "That is the reality", said the Argentine. "I have been injured for the past few camps so I am really looking forward to getting out there, hopefully putting on that Three Lions shirt and scoring".

Spurs once again defied expectations by finishing second in the Premier League, which is their highest ever finish and gaining Champions League qualification for a second successive season.

Spurs have only conceded two goals in their last six Premier League games against Hull City, keeping clean sheets in each of their last two.

The striker has already turned his attention to 2017-18, targeting the century mark of goals as he now sits on 75 Premier League strikes.

Kane has already turned his attention to 2017-18, targeting 100 goals as he now sits on 75 Premier League strikes.

Tottenham face Hull at the KCOM Stadium in their final game of the season where the 17-time England global will look to add more goals to his tally and secure his hold on the Golden Boot.

"I think I said to someone the other day it would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season".

Barring something drastic happening in the last round of this season's Premier League, it seems Harry Kane is already our 2016/17 Golden Boot victor. It would be a fantastic achievement.

"We were talking a lot about the holidays after the global games (in June)".

When asked after Thursday's win how Kane has improved this season, Pochettino said: "I think the most important thing is [he is] more mature and experienced, and then he's so professional". I know I'm sure that he will be anxious.
