Harry Kane eyes Premier League goals century by end of next season

Harry Kane eyes Premier League goals century by end of next season

Kane has been on fire for Tottenham this season, helping his side to cement second in the Premier League for the first time.

Kane's haul took his tally of league goals for the season to 26, two clear of Everton's Romelu Lukaku with one game to play, while he became the first Spurs player since Jimmy Greaves to net four hat-tricks in a single season.

"It was probably one of the best performances of the season".

It was his third league hat trick of the season, matching Napoli's Dries Mertens and Bayern's Robert Lewandowski for the most among Europe's top 5 leagues this season.

However, Pochettino remains insistent that Tottenham's key players are content to stay put amid other speculation linking the likes of Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker with summer exits. Pochettino was evidently delighted with that statistic and hopes that his side can back up their exciting performances with silverware over the coming seasons as they prepare to move into their new 61,559-seater stadium adjacent to White Hart Lane.

Kane said: "I am sure he is not too happy".

"In the whole team it's a very good quality of effort. It's not just about the goals he's scored, it's the way he competes in all areas, he's a team player, he's fantastic in the dressing room".

Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi vies with Tottenham's Harry Kane.

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.

Top top it all off, after Harry Kane scored his fourth goal of the night and jumped ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot, Leicester fans came out with this...

Who will win the battle for the Premier League golden boot? Now he is a massive player, one of the most important players in England. In the first half we dominated the game; in the second half, it's true that they changed [shape] and tried to play with a little bit more energy.

The scoreline reflected exactly how the game went as Mauricio Pochettino's men got some revenge on the Foxes, who pipped Spurs to the title last season. "We spoke a lot about changing that feeling and finishing in the best way", he said.

When the second goal went in the hosts really struggled to get any momentum going to get a goal back before half-time which needed to change in the second half if they wanted to keep Craig Shakespeare's unbeaten home record alive.

"I think the pressure was down, we enjoyed the night".

"I have to take some responsibility for that after changing the formation. if you get beat 6-1, there's no positives".
