Pochettino: Kane is one of the best strikers in the world

  Pochettino: Kane is one of the best strikers in the world Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino called Harry Kane one of the best strikers in the world after the England striker scored four times as Spurs hammered Leicester 6-1 at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night. Kane’s quadruple strike moved him to the top of the pile in the race for the Golden Boot, two goals clear of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku. Spurs travel to Hull City at the weekend, whilst Everton will face Arsenal at the Emirates, so it looks like Kane will end the season as the league’s top scorer for the second year in a row. When asked about his striker, Pochettino said: “To be fair when he was injured, other players scored goals, like Son, or (Dele) Alli or (Christian) Eriksen but it’s true that Harry Kane is our main striker and one of the best in the world.” It’s hard to argue with the manager’s assessment of his star man as he continually finds the back of the net and, if he can continue in this manner, we can all envisage a bright future for Tottenham. Kane, along with the likes of Alli and Eriksen will look to go one better next season and win the Premier League title, although to do so, they will have to quickly come to terms with playing at their temporary home of Wembley Stadium, a place where they’ve had very limited success in recent years.

Harry Kane says he wants to score four more goals against Hull City to clinch the Premier League Golden Boot after his masterful display in Tottenham's thrashing of Leicester City.

The England international netted four times in Thursday's 6-1 rout to take his tally for the season to 26 and move two clear of Romelu Lukaku in the goalscoring charts.

Kane spoke of his desire to boost his numbers at King Power Stdium and is equally determined to add to his tally on the final day of the season and clinch a second Golden Boot in a row.

"First and foremost, we wanted to come here and put in a good performance and win," he told Sky Sports.

Kane wants 100 Premier League goals next season

  Kane wants 100 Premier League goals next season Harry Kane has already turned his attention to 2017-18, targeting 100 goals as he currently sits on 75 Premier League strikes. "I think I said to someone the other day it would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season," Kane said."I am on 75 in the league and if there is another season like this then hopefully I can get to the 100. It would be a fantastic achievement."I think there were three games I did not score in [at the start of the season] and then I went on a good run.

"Of course I'd been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet and it's the first time I've scored four goals [in a game]. It's a good moment to do it.

"I was hoping to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the next game. But now I'm in the driving seat.

"There's still one game left to play so I'm not resting on my laurels. I've got to go out against Hull and get four more, hopefully.

"I felt good. Leicester made it tough for us, they came out in the second half and really put the pressure on. For us to get that third [goal] was vital and then the game opened up.

"I started to cheat a bit, get a bit lazy and wait on the last man. It was one-v-one and two-v-two at the back and I fancied my chances."

Son Heung-min scored Spurs' other two in the rout, with Ben Chilwell netting what proved to be scant consolation for last season's champions.

Son, who set up Kane's opener in the first half, believes the 23-year-old would boast a formidable goal tally had he not been sidelined with ankle injury problems this term.

"I think the pressure was down, we enjoyed the night. Every player really enjoyed the game," said Son.

"I'm really happy for H and I scored two goals, as well.

"It's very important to support him. I don't know how long he had an injury but he's still scored 26 goals. He's an unbelievable player, he can score from anywhere."
