Harry Kane all but retains the Golden Boot as Ben Chilwell scores the most composed goal of the season

Spurs' top scorer has almost certainly retained the Golden Boot after a four-goal haul at the King Power

Not much to cheer for the now former champions at the King Power stadium tonight.

Leicester succumbed to a 6-1 loss as Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs flexed their muscles despite having nothing to gain in terms of league position.

Four goals for the prolific Harry Kane saw him leapfrog Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

There can be no doubters left; the lad is a proper goalscorer of the highest quality.

Son Hueng-Min bagged a brace with a pair of pinpoint finishes as he took his tally to 21 for the season in all competitions.

The game’s most unique goal came in the form of the Foxes’ consolation.

20-year-old Ben Chilwell showed composure beyond his years when it looked as if the chance had gone.

The ball broke to the young full-back about 25 yards from with Hugo Lloris out of position.

While many would have taken the shot on first time, Chilwell opted to take a touch and dribble into the box before slotting past Jan Vertonghen on the line.

Chilwell’s calmness under pressure won him plenty of admirers.

Ultimately his effort proved to be merely an indication of what the England U21 international is capable of producing in the final third.

Leicester fans will be hoping to see more of the same from him next season.

As for Spurs, they were simply too good for their opponents, as is so often the case these days.

The night belonged to Kane though, and surely not even Lukaku would begrudge his rival the Golden Boot after such a clinical display.
