Leicester City 1-6 Tottenham Hotspur
As White Hart Lane is dismantled and rebuilt, Spurs’ summer seems likely to be flavoured by reports and fears of the team going the same way.
Right-back Kyle Walker – again left out, albeit this time with an ankle problem – has long been linked with a move, and Pochettino admitted this week the club may struggle to compete with clubs offering huge salaries this summer.
That may have sounded alarm bells for supporters, but the good news for them is it would surely take record numbers to prise away either of the side’s crown jewels.
Kane and Alli have scored 43 Premier League goals between them this season and were outstanding again, along with Son, in a dynamic attacking display.
Those three players alone had 19 efforts on goal, while Alli’s chipped assist for Son’s first goal was further evidence of his growing influence and inventiveness.
Kane, who tapped in Son’s cross to open the scoring, added a close-range header then twice thrashed past Kasper Schmeichel from the edge of the area, could become the first man since Robin van Persie to win the golden boot in successive seasons.
There is no doubt Spurs have the quality to be champions. If they can repeat their home form while on ‘holiday’ at Wembley, perhaps the wait for a league title will end after 57 years.
