Unfortunately for the Belgian, his team mates are unlikely to be as motivated to put on a performance as the Gunners due to their need for a win to secure a top four finish.

The England global now has 26 goals, putting him two ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku with one game remaining in the race for the golden boot.

"I was looking to take it into the last game, but now I'm in the driving seat".

"It's the first time I've scored four goals and it was a good moment to do it", Kane said.

Son and Moussa Sissoko had wasted golden chances before then while Jamie Vardy was presented a chance for Leicester's goal but Hugo Lloris had a clear sight of his shot and made a comfortable save.

Son got his second on 71 minutes, curling beyond Schmeichel into the bottom corner from 20 yards after Kane's pass in midfield to make it 4-1, before Kane himself took over the game.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pocchetino heaped praise on Kane and stressed he was in no mood to sell him to potential bidders.

Tottenham, already guaranteed to finish second, now have more points than Leicester won the league with last season, but if Pochettino's players were frustrated at falling short in the title race, they haven't let it show.

Moyes then tellingly added: "I'm more concerned that I've now got others who are saying they are injured as well". He said: "I came here knowing exactly what the task was going to be".

There has been speculation that Kane could be tempted away in the transfer window, with Manchester United among the clubs to have been linked in the past, but Pochettino says Spurs are building a project that should appeal to all of their best players.

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

Dele Alli's low header was then saved by Kasper Schmeichel as Spurs began to raise the tempo, sensing Leicester were there for the taking.

Ben Chilwell momentarily sparked hopes of a fightback by making it 2-1, but the Foxes ultimately had no answer to this in-form Tottenham side, who recorded their biggest away win in the Premier League. "I think I'm on 75 now and to get 100 would be a fantastic achievement".

The England worldwide scored four goals in the 6-1 thrashing of Leicester to move clear of the goalscoring charts and is in line to claim his second successive Golden Boot. It's good for us to be creative now, one more time.

Son Heung-min also scored twice as Spurs continued to shrug off any disappointment following Chelsea's title win.

Chilwell calmly put the ball into the back of the net after Lloris denied Vardy from scoring and from their Ndidi found the left-back and he took his time before placing the ball in the goal.
