Tottenham 'family' will stick together next season, Kane says

Former Tottenham defender Ledley King has urged the club to continue to promote homegrown talent as they prepare to move into their new stadium.

Third last season despite being Leicester's closest challengers for most of the campaign - or, as the home fans enjoyed chanting in the opening stages, "third in a two-horse race" - Spurs have gone one better this time.

"It is vital for that connection to be maintained". Son got behind the Leicester defence and cut the ball back for Kane, who finished with aplomb.

Pochettino's players could be excused for losing focus but, having endured a costly collapse during the run-in last term, the Argentine coach is determined to finish strongly.

But Pochettino's men will finish with an impressive total of 86 if they are victorious against the Foxes and the Tigers.

- Tottenham now have three players with 20-plus goals in all comps this season (Kane, Alli & Son); more than any other club in the Premier League/Football League.

While it seems as though there is certainly a number of talented young players coming through their youth system, it will be essential to keep this group together moving forward too.

Jokes aside, the 23-year-old had the flawless outing, taking command of the Golden Boot race with a four-goal display.

The Englishman is one of the best strikers in Europe, and one should not be surprised if top clubs try to sign him in the summer transfer window.

"I was hoping to get one or two goals at least and then hopefully take it into the next game".

Watching Chelsea's jubilant players celebrate their title triumph was a painful experience for Tottenham striker Kane, who once again has more than 20 goals to his credit without winning a major trophy. For us to get that third [goal] was vital and then the game opened up.

Leicester, who are yet to make a decision on manager Craig Shakespeare's future, played their part in an entertaining game.

It was no more than the 24-year-old deserved as neat footwork gave him space on the edge of the box and he curled low beyond Schmeichel.

Tottenham in turn, due to a misfire from West Ham on May 5, lost all chances for the championship in this season, but it's too late to talk about it.

"There's still one game left to play so I'm not resting on my laurels". We are so, so calm about our key players.
