Four-goal Kane helps Spurs punish Leicester
A second successive runners-up finish is officially Spurs’ best league finish in 54 years, since coming second in 1962/63, and their 83 point haul would have been enough to win the Premier League title on eight previous occasions.
The 29-year-old has missed several matches recently because of the problem and often finds it hard to complete 90 minutes on the occasions that he does start.
“I wanted to get one or two goals at least and take it to the final game”, Kane told Sky Sports.
“You need younger players, he said, “like Dele Alli, who preferred to come here than another club”.
Add in the division’s meanest defence – Hugo Lloris’ mistake for Chilwell’s goal notwithstanding – and it is no surprise Pochettino alleged his allegiance to the club. “I have been injured for the past few camps so I am really looking forward to getting out there, hopefully putting on that Three Lions shirt and scoring”.
“This is my best season”.
Mousa Dembele has attempted 63.69 passes per game in the Premier League this season.
He’s desperate to join the elite band of hitmen with 100 top flight goals.
Mauricio Pochettino insists there is no chance Harry Kane will be allowed to leave Tottenham after his “special” striker’s four-goal blitz in the 6-1 rout of Leicester. We were talking a lot about last season when we finished so badly.
But he has no intention of easing up in his quest to reach the milestone – starting by downing Hull tomorrow.
“It would be great if I could join that 100 club by the end of next season”.
“I am on 75 in the league now”. I am on 75 in the league and if there is another season like this then hopefully I can get to the 100.
Kane is hunting the league’s golden boot and the England striker was at his predatory best as he plundered the Leicester defense four times to move to the top of the scoring charts with 26 goals. It would be a fantastic achievement.
Everton’s Romelu Lukaku is second on 24 goals but Kane is well on course to nail down the goalscoring prize heading into Tottenham’s final fixture at Hull on Sunday.
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.
