Kane joins exclusive league of Premier League top scorers

Son, Alli and Kane were relentless, epitomising Spurs' quality and work rate. 1-3, min. 63, Kane.

Spurs will finish in second spot in the Premier League this season and so have Champions League football to boast next term.

Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was in action Thursday night in Leicester City's embarassing 6-1 thrashing against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium, reports.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Craig Shakespeare or Mauricio Pochettino?

As early as the fifth minute, Kane nearly played in Son who was only denied by a Ben Chilwell intervention and although the Foxes responded with a Jamie Vardy strike which was held by Hugo Lloris and a deflected volley from Daniel Amartey, they were outplayed for the remainder of the first half.

Kane's numbers are all the more remarkable because he missed 11 weeks of the season with two ankle ligament injuries, but Pochettino also wanted to praise other players, including Son Heung-Min who scored Spurs' other two goals at Leicester.

Tottenham are likely to consider bolstering their attacking resources this summer, but Carragher reckons that Son is already "exactly" the type of player that they are after.

Son's double means that he has become the third Spurs player to reach the 20-goal mark this season with Kane and Dele Alli.

Janssen's goal five minutes to full time was ruled out for offside although he had an attempt before that, a good shot outside the box some seconds earlier which went off target.

That is exactly what they did at the beginning of the second half as they started very well and they got their reward for their positive start as they got themselves back into the game. This performance showed that we have learned, improved from last season.

Kane gave Spurs the lead on 25 minutes when Son raced down the right hand byline and pulled it back for the advancing England centre forward to find the net.

Jan Vertonghen's long pass targeted a penetrating run from Son and, with Leicester caught flat-footed, the South Korean quickly picked out Kane, who arrived on cue to guide a clinical finish past Schmeichel from close-range.

And Kane had not finished when he scored again in stoppage time, with nearly a carbon copy of his third, beating Schmeichel low to his right from the edge of the area.
