The last match of the season will determine the coveted golden boot award winner. This is after Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane netted four goals past Champions Leicester City last night.

Before the fixture, the 23-year-old Englishman was two goals behind Everton’s Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has 24 goals and is trailing Kane with two goals.

Despite Ben Chilwell’s consolation goal at the half-hour mark, Heung-min Son scored a brace for the Foxes to end the night on a massive 1-6 at King Power Stadium.

The win has left Spurs second on the log with 83 points, exceeding Leicester’s tally last season (81) when they clinched the trophy.

Romelu Lukaku will seek to respond as they face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday. On the other hand, Harry Kane will aim to better his tally as they travel to KCOM Stadium to square it out with relegated Hull City the same day for the final match of the season.
