Tottenham fans react to Moussa Sissoko's performance vs Leicester


Harry Kane scored four goals as Tottenham Hotspur crushed defending champions Leicester City 6-1 in the penultimate match of the season at King Power Stadium.

"I think we are so, so, so calm about our big players and they are so happy here", said the Argentine.

"You hear things "we're not going to sell our best players", but when that big club comes in, Man United couldn't keep hold of Ronaldo, Tottenham couldn't keep hold of Bale".

"Harry's a special player, he loves Tottenham". But it's true that Harry Kane is our main striker and one of the best in the world, ' Pochettino said.

"Hopefully next season I can get off in the first game, get a couple of goals and go from there".

"We are building a very exciting project".

Kane's fifth Premier League hat-trick in just over two years took him to 32 goals in all competitions this season, four more than he managed last term and one more than the 31 he bagged in the 2014-15 season.

"There has been a bit of build-up on the race for the golden boot and I wanted at least one or two to put the pressure on but to get four is fantastic", Kane said.

The likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen have been in particularly fine form for Tottenham this season, but the club may face a battle to keep hold of their top players following their individual success.

"We have Hull away and I'm looking to get a couple of goals".

"The first three games I didn't score but then I went on a good run", he said. It's more than I've had in the past so I will make the most of it. Getting away is not so much a physical rest as a mental one.

"This is my best season".

"I felt good. Leicester made it tough for us, they came out in the second half and really put the pressure on".

Mauricio Pochettino praises Tottenham's determination to finish the season strong, even though the title race is over. We spoke a lot to try to change that view and that feeling and finish in the best way.

'During the whole season we'e been talking about improving and learning and this type of performance shows that the team is improving and has learned a lot from last season'. "If you get beaten 6-1 there are no positives".
