Four-some Harry puts the boot in for Spurs

By Ciaran McGrath in Football

HARRY Kane was in buoyant mood after bagging four goals in a 6-1 demolition of title holders Leicester which put him in pole position to win the coveted Golden Boot award once again.

Spurs ran rampant at the King Power Stadium, with the win ensuring that the Lilywhites had exceeded the Foxes’ winning total from last season - and Kane took his tally to 26 league goals for the season.

Kane told the club’s website afterwards: "Obviously going into this game there has been a lot of talk about the Golden Boot and I wanted to just make sure I was in the mix for the last day of the season.

“To score four and to play how we did…the team was incredible. It was the perfect night really.

"We said before the game that we’d secured second place and we wanted to go out there and enjoy it.

Son Heung-Min also helped himself to two goals, meaning the South Korean has 20 in all competitions.

“When we play free-flowing football like that, some of the play around the box in the first half…every man was on their game and it’s fantastic to see," said Kane.

“It shows our mentality. We’ve not too much to play for now but we went out there and put on a performance like that.”

Spurs will face already-relegated Hull City on Sunday, with Kane keen to finish the season with a flourish.
