Kane nets 4 in Spurs' 6-1 romp over Leicester

It took his tally to 26 for the season - despite missing nearly three months of the season through injury!

He took ten shots and only scored four times - a bad night for Harry Kane?

The 34-year-old told BBC Sport: "The attacking part of their team is the area where Tottenham can improve, and I would bring in two more forwards to play behind Harry Kane".

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has "no reason" to leave the club at the end of the season, manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted.

"It is very clear we will keep the players we want to keep and we will maybe sell the players we want to sell", said Pochettino.

But he will be without several key players going into the clash, with right backs Kyle Walker (ankle) and Kieran Trippier (concussion) both out, and left back Danny Rose having undergone exploratory surgery on his left knee.

They should have taken the lead when Dele Alli played the ball through to Son but with just the keeper to beat, the winger smashed the ball over the bar when he should have scored.

Of the five meetings between the sides in all competitions since the start of last season, Spurs have lost only once (W1 D3).

Witnesses said the driver appeared to intentionally drive into a group of people, but police are still investigating the motive. More than 300,000 people, many of them tourists, pass through Times Square every day, according to its official website.

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.

Leicester vs Tottenham Hotspur Live Stream, Score, and Lineup: Leicester City will be playing against Tottenham Hotspur today. Hopefully next season they can really make a title challenge, because in all fairness, they have never really been in contention this year despite finishing second. Leicester meanwhile, may now have some doubts over the capabilities of Craig Shakespeare, after such a humbling loss.

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.

Leicester were on the back foot instantly when Son shot over before Jamie Vardy fired straight at Lloris as Tottenham dominated possession without a serious opening until Son wasted a glorious one after 15 minutes. With Fuchs trailing behind, Son teed up Kane to sweep in from six yards. Both easily put into Leicester's net from the edge of the box.

Wes Morgan and Robert Huth - the main centre-back pairing for nearly the entirety of Leicester's Premier League career post-promotion, are both doubts for the game, which could see Craig Shakespeare deploy Christian Fuchs in a central role.

After the Tottenham game, Leicester host Bournemouth in their final fixture on Sunday.

Son Heung-min also scored twice for the visitors who outclassed the Foxes all night, despite Ben Chilwell's second-half consolation.
