Harry Kane is Tottenham’s leading scorer this season with 22 goals

Prolific striker Harry Kane expressed his determination to seal the Premier League's Golden Boot award after a four-goal rampage during Tottenham's demolition of dethroned champions Leicester.

The England forward is now in pole position to defend the golden boot after his haul in Tottenham's fine win at the King Power Stadium on Thursday. "But it's true that Harry Kane is our main striker and one of the best in the world", he said.

"If some club is paying double the salary (for players we want to sign), how can you convince them?" said Pochettino on Wednesday. It's possible things can happen in the summer but we are so calm about our key players.

'They are happy here as we are building an exciting project'. "We feel so proud of Harry, to score four goals was fantastic", Sport24 quoted Pochettino as saying. He means a lot for the team.

"First and foremost, we wanted to come here and put in a good performance and win", he told Sky Sports after Thursday's big win.

Only Robbie Fowler, Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie have previously scored 25 goals in consecutive seasons in the Premier League. To score four goals was very good for him.

Spurs have three players with 20 or more goals in all competitions this season (Kane, Alli and Son) - no other club in the Premier League or Football League have more than one player with 20 or more goals.

"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 wonderful", Kane said.

The Foxes brief recovery though didn't last long as Spurs showed their quality once again as Alderweireld's cross was headed back across goal by Victor Wanyama to Kane, who nodded the ball into the net.

For now, though, his sights are set on retaining the Golden Boot.

However, similarly to last season, the north London club fell at the final hurdle and conceded the title race to one of their rivals, first Leicester a year ago, and more recently, Chelsea.

"I think the pressure was down, we enjoyed the night". "The team worked so hard in the last pre-season to try to first of all settle the principles and play how we play".

Son got his second on 71 minutes, curling beyond Schmeichel into the bottom corner from 20 yards after Kane's pass in midfield to make it 4-1, before Kane himself took over the game.

The defeat, Leicester's 18th of a miserable title defence, saw them miss out on the chance to draw level on points with eighth-place Southampton and did little to enhance manager Craig Shakespeare's chances of holding on to the job for next term.

Kane moved to 75 Premier League goals in 115 appearances and he has targeted a century by the end of next season, starting in Sunday's season finale at relegated Hull City.
