Harry Kane is aiming to reach 30 Premier League goals for the first time in his career after scoring four in a brilliant destruction at Leicester.

The England forward's haul moved him two ahead of Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Premier League's golden boot with 26 goals ahead of Sunday's season-finale at Hull. "When he was injured, many other players scored, like Son or Alli, it's true, Harry Kane is our main striker, one of the best in the world", the Argentine said.

"We will keep the players that we want to keep", Pochettino said.

"The players must feel they are part of us and want to share in our success".

'We'll look to improve the squad again in the summer, and play exciting football.

Alan Curbishley believes Tottenham striker Harry Kane fools opponents with his quick-fire shooting. He means a lot for the team.

"It's fantastic for him".

Six of his 24 goals have been scored with his head, while he has also shown his proficiency with both feet as 11 strikes have been with his left and seven with his right.

Spurs have won 12 of their past 13 league games and have been kept at bay only by the remarkable resilience of Chelsea, who ensured it has been a case of "nearly" for Pochettino and his players for the second season in a row.

Son Heung-min has been another bright spark for the Lilywhites this season and the Korean made it 2-0 before the break, via a fine volley from a clever Dele Alli pass. "I just wanted to get one or two tonight to take it to the final game but to score the extra two at the end made it the flawless night. I'm going to go out there against Hull and try and get four more".

Since winning in their first ever Premier League encounter, Hull are without a win in their last eight games against Tottenham (D2 L6).

After missing out on the title last season, Spurs fell apart and ended the season with an embarrassing 5-1 defeat at relegated Newcastle. "It was hard because we conceded the goal but the team tried to keep going and I think we fully deserved it".

And Pochettino hopes the experience will stand them in good stead next term, when they have to play their home games at Wembley while White Hart Lane is rebuilt.

"I don't know, you'll have to ask the owners about that", he said.

"I have to take some responsibility for that after changing the formation. if you get beat 6-1, there's no positives".

But former Premier League manager Curbishley believes that the England global is "fooling" goalkeepers with the speed of his shooting, whilst delivering a glowing verdict of his talents.
