Mauricio Pochettino hints at "creative" Spurs formation change vs Leicester

Ben Chilwell pulled one back for Leicester after the break but Kane struck three times to go top of the Premier League's scoring chart with 26 goals, with Son scoring his second after some dazzling footwork created space for a neat low shot from 25 metres.

Son's double means that he has become the third Spurs player to reach the 20-goal mark this season with Kane and Dele Alli.

"It is very clear we will keep the players we want to keep and we will maybe sell the players we want to sell", said Pochettino.

"There are many rumours but I am committed to the club and have no reason to leave the club".

"Our fans need to be calm".

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

Pochettino is about to finish another stellar season with his Spurs, in which the Londoners easily played the most attractive football in the Premier League.

The north London side are also building a new stadium which Pochettino has stated he believes will take the club to the next level.

Son's 20th goal of the season was just reward for Tottenham's dominance, but Leicester got one back in 59th minute.

Pochettino is without the services of right-sided defenders Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker, who have concussion and an ankle problem respectively, while Danny Rose is still sidelined, meaning Tottenham may have to line up in a rather unusual system at the King Power Stadium. Spurs close their season at Hull City, with Kane eyeing more goals to pad his lead and capture another individual honor.

No other Premier League club has matched that feat.

Tottenham challenged Leicester for the title last season, before eventually finishing third.

Tottenham have played their last game of the season against relegated sides for two years running and this season they will look to do better than last season and manage to get a win against Hull City unlike what they did last season against Newcastle.

Tottenham: Lloris 6, Dier 7, Alderweireld 8, Vertonghen 7, Davies 7, Wanyama 7, Dembele 7, Sissoko 6, Alli 8, Son 9, Kane 10.

"We are a bit disappointed not to get a clean sheet for Hugo, who is going for the golden glove but all in all it was a good night. This group of players deserves trophies".

"I am in the driving seat but there's still one more game".

"I think this will be a good game".

63rd min: One of the easier goals Kane will score in his career. Leicester have done alright, and I really think Craig Shakespeare should get the job.
