Spurs thrash woeful Leicester in EPL clash
Four goals to England international Harry Kane has helped Spurs to a 6-1 thrashing of Leicester in the EPL.

A rampant Harry Kane netted four goals and Son Heung-min scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur thrashed champions Leicester City 6-1 in an entertaining Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.

Already certain of finishing second behind champions Chelsea, Spurs played as if the title race depended on the outcome of their visit to Leicester, who suffered a first home defeat after five straight wins.

The lively Son set up Kane for a 25th-minute opener and made it 2-0 with a first-time shot on the turn in the 36th minute as the visitors dominated the opening half with some crisp passing.

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.
