Race for the Golden Boot

May 20, 2017, 00:21

That is exactly what they did at the beginning of the second half as they started very well and they got their reward for their positive start as they got themselves back into the game.

25 - Harry Kane is only the fifth player in @premierleague history to score 25+ goals in successive seasons. His first goal moved him past Cha Bum-Kun to become the highest-scoring South Korean player in a European season.

Tottenham will move into their new stadium for the 2018-19 campaign, but next season they will play their home matches at Wembley, where they struggled in the Champions League and Europa League.

Chelsea has taken the trophy off Leicester, which astonishingly won the title last season but collapsed this year and is now 11th.

This was visitors 13th win in their last 16 games in all competitions, having already cemented second place in the league standings with 83 points.

Pochettino also said Tottenham can not afford to make any mistakes next season if they want to win the title.

And Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare admitted there was little to take from defeat after the Foxes suffered their heaviest home league loss since 2004.

Leicester: Schmeichel 6, Simpson 5, Benalouane 5, Fuchs 5, Chilwell 6, Mahrez 5, Ndidi 6, Amartey 6, Albrighton 6, Okazaki 5, Vardy 6.

Concerns about Fox are centered around his jump shot as he attempted just 69 threes and shot 24.6 percent from beyond the arc. That means Alkins ( Team 1) and Allen (2) will face each other in the first game, while Simmons will play in the second one.

Kane opened the scoring before Son Heung-min added a second before the break.

But the polar opposite was true of their performance, as Tottenham berated Leicester from the off. Kane - and Son before being substituted - was a man on a mission. With Fuchs trailing behind, Son teed up Kane to sweep in from six yards.

The best bet is the over 2.5 goals since Spurs will be a on a frenzy and so will Hull City since neither have anything to lose in the match.

Unfazed, Pochettino's team should have taken the lead when Son collected Dele Alli's defence-splitting pass and blazed over with just Kasper Schmeichel to beat.

Although he may not win the Golden Boot this year, he'll be going all out to score against Everton and then should feature in the FA Cup final too. Chilwell shows great composure to roll the ball into the net after Lloris failed to cover his goal when racing back from a challenge with Vardy outside the area.

The Tottenham striker suffered ankle ligament injuries in September and March, and he has played 725 fewer minutes than Everton forward Romelu Lukaku in the top flight.

Son, Alli and Kane were relentless, epitomising Spurs' quality and work rate.
