Harry Kane scored four goals in Tottenham's win over Leicester

Ruthless Harry Kane struck four goals as Tottenham dismantled Leicester 6-1.

The England forward's haul moved him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the golden boot with 26 goals ahead of Sunday's season-finale at Hull.

Son Heung-min also scored twice at the King Power Stadium as Spurs continued to shrug off any disappointment following Chelsea's title win.

The visitors were untouchable as they sealed their 13th win in their last 16 games in all competitions, having already cemented second place.

Tottenham challenged Leicester for the title last season, before eventually finishing third, and Foxes chief Craig Shakespeare dismissed any aggravation between the sides after last year's battle.

But he will be disappointed with how his side rolled over for Spurs, who outclassed their hosts from almost the first minute.

Apart from an error from Hugo Lloris which allowed Ben Chilwell to score, Tottenham were always on top.
