Rampant Kane hits four and destroy Leicester City

Harry Kane looks on course to win the Premier League Golden Boot after his four-goal blitz helped Tottenham humble Leicester City 6-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Harry Kane took control of the Premier League Golden Boot race after bagging four goals against Leicester City.

A rampant Kane netted four goals and Son Heung-min scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur thrashed champions Leicester City 6-1 in an entertaining Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.

The England striker moved two clear of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku thanks to a stunning solo display of ruthless finishing that took his tally to 26 top-flight strikes for the season.

Son Heung-Min also bagged a brace as the Lilywhites ran riot with a typically all-action attacking display.

Ben Chilwell had given the Foxes hope when he took advantage of a rush of blood from Hugo LIoris to make it 2-1 early in the second half. But last year’s champions fell apart late on as their hopes of a top-half finish suffered a major blow.

Already certain of finishing second behind champions Chelsea, Spurs played as if the title race depended on the outcome of their visit to Leicester, who suffered a first home defeat after five straight wins.

The lively Son set up Kane for a 25th-minute opener and made it 2-0 with a first-time shot on the turn in the 36th minute as the visitors dominated the opening half with some crisp passing.

Chilwell pulled one back for Leicester after the break but Kane struck three times to go top of the Premier League’s scoring chart with 26 goals, with Son scoring his second after some dazzling footwork created space for a neat low shot from 25 metres.
