Tottenham produced a superb attacking display on Thursday night, thoroughly battering Leicester City 6-1 at the King Power Stadium, with Harry Kane netting four times.

While there was little to play for in this last fixture before the final day of this season’s Premier League programme, Spurs were well up for it, with Kane opening the scoring on 25 minutes.

Son Heung-Min has been another bright spark for Spurs this season and the Korean made it 2-0 before the break, firing off a fine volley after latching onto a clever Dele Alli pass….

In the second period, the Foxes fought back, with Ben Chilwell making it 2-1 just before the hour-mark.

However, the hosts were no match for the attacking power of their opponents, with Kane restoring Tottenham’s lead soon after with a close-range header.

Son then added his second of the game, producing a fine curling effort as the north Londoners cut through the Leicester backline.

There was still time for Kane for netting two more clinical strikes, both from the edge of the box.

The win sees Mauricio Pochettino’s side move back to within seven points of champions Chelsea, while Kane himself moves to 26 goals, two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

As for Craig Shakespeare and Leicester, despite the result, they can look back on a satisfying second half of the season.
