Leicester City hosted Tottenham Hotspur in their final home game of the season and were thrashed 1-6 by a rampant #Spurs team with England striker #Harry Kane bagging four of the six goals.

Kane, goal-scoring sensation

In scoring his four goals last night Harry Kane has joined an elite #Premier League club of only five players who have scored over 25 goals in back to back premier league seasons. Kane is now mentioned in the same breath as world renowned players; Alan Shearer, Robbie Fowler, Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie. For a player who was hailed as a " one season wonder, " this is a spectacular achievement. This is actually the third season that Kane has scored over 20 goals and he is fast closing in on 100 league goals.

Sweet revenge

The 6-1 thrashing was revenge for last season when Tottenham chased Leicester all the way but were thwarted in their hopes of success by a Leicester side which surpassed even their own expectations. This will go some way towards healing that wound as Spurs have qualified comfortably for Champions League football next season while Leicester have not. The title race last season created animosity between the two sets of fans and last night's game saw them goading one another throughout the game. Spurs fans had the last laugh however as they cheered " Cheerio" to the home supporters as they left early.

Spurs dilemma

As Kane heads for the Golden Boot this season ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez the worry for Spurs fans must be whether they can hold on to their mercurial striker.

Given that midfielder Delle Alli and defender Kyle Walker have both had impressive seasons and are linked with transfer speculation there must be concerns that they may well lose three of their most gifted young players when the big guns of La Liga or Serie A show an interest. However, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is sure that the club will be able to retain the young star's services. In an interview, he stated " Harry Kane's a special player. He loves Tottenham. " Pochettino remains confident that what he is building at Spurs will be enough to keep the players on board. He claims that "We are building a very exciting project and the players want to share in our success."

There can be no doubt that Pochettino has transformed the fortunes of the North London club since his arrival from Southampton a few years ago. Spurs now look like a side that can challenge for not only the Premier League title but even higher honours. They play open, attacking and direct football and have despatched many of the top teams this season.
