Four-goal Harry Kane helps Spurs punish Leicester

Four-goal Harry Kane helps Spurs punish Leicester

When asked about reaching the 100-goal mark, the England worldwide said: "Yes, I think I said to someone the other day that it would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season".

Pochettino said: "If we are capable in the last two games of winning one, we will have a better (points total) than Leicester last season".

Mauricio Pochettino put out a strong Tottenham side despite having second place already secured, and though they had much of the play early on, the first chance fell to Leicester. We were talking a lot about last season when we finished so badly. He was out of action from Week 7 to Week 12 because of an ankle injury suffered against Millwall in the FA Cup but came back to score five goals in just four games straight after that break.

During that spell, the Lilywhites were held to three successive draws by West Brom, Bournemouth and Leicester in the league - all matches that Kane missed because of injury. "We are very proud of our Harry". But there is still one game to go and I'm sure he's determined to score a hat-trick on Sunday.

- Tottenham now have three players with 20-plus goals in all comps this season (Kane, Alli & Son); more than any other club in the Premier League/Football League. The players must feel they are part of it and want to share in our success.

Tottenham had gone 13 consecutive matches without a draw and Leicester's promising start in the first half seemed to suggest that they could get a decent result in the penultimate game before the final day of the season.

Harry Kane deserves the golden boot and hope he gets it! I'm not resting on my laurels, and I'll go to Hull [on Sunday] looking to get four more hopefully.

Trump tweets 'best thing' would be to cancel future press briefings
At the Senate hearing, Mr McCabe testified it was not typical practice to tell people they were not a target of an investigation. When Collins pressed McCabe on Trump's claim about conversations he had with Comey, McCabe again declined to comment.

"Like always every summer, it's possible that something happens [that is] unseen but I think we are so, so, so calm about our key players".

Hull City have won 21 points from 17 Premier League games under Silva, which is more than eight other Premier League teams since his appointment - but this wasn't enough to avoid relegation.

"If some club is paying double the salary (for players we want to sign), how can you convince them?" said Pochettino on Wednesday.

By his own high standards, Kane has started relatively slowly in the last two seasons.

"We talk about 'if Tottenham are in the Champions League, it will be more attractive.' But then it's all about if you pay or not when we talk about top players", Pochettino told reporters.

"We need to put in a performance now on Sunday".

Dele Alli's low header was then saved by Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as Spurs began to raise the tempo, sensing Leicester was there for the taking.
