While it is true that Tottenham are building a new stadium, the club are very much capable of saying "no" if Premier League rivals want to sign their top players.

Harry Kane scored four times as Tottenham produced another superb performance to sweep aside Leicester City.

Harry Kane has scored almost a goal a game for Tottenham Hotspur this season.

Tottenham face Hull at the KCOM Stadium in their final game of the season where the 17-time England worldwide will look to add more goals to his tally and secure his hold on the Golden Boot.

Kane won last season's golden boot with 25 goals and is on course to defend his personal title.

England worldwide Kane, who hopes to add to his tally against relegated Hull on Sunday, told Sky Sports: "I've been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet this week".

'He is great, he is one of the best strikers in the world.

The England striker is out to maul Gordon Strachan's struggling side in the World Cup qualifier at Hampden next month. "We feel so proud of Harry, to score four goals was fantastic", Sport24 quoted Pochettino as saying.

Amid heckles, Mexico president vows more to stop reporter murders
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) said in an email that more must be done to protect reporters in Mexico. It added that even when there are convictions, they are often limited to the immediate killer and do not clarify the motive.

Only 26 players in Premier League history have reached 100 goals.

"It is going to be a lively game", he added.

Chelsea has taken the trophy off Leicester, which astonishingly won the title last season but collapsed this year and is now 11th. "Because I think this group of players deserve to win something".

"We wanted to improve this season and this type of performance showed we have learned a lot. They have a strict wage structure there as we know and sometime to progress you have to move that a little bit to attract the better players".

"I wouldn't be able to say yes or no but hopefully I can stay fit for the majority of next season and we can go and get that league title".

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare faces talks with the club's Thai owners next week to decide if he will remain in charge and this thrashing was hardly the ideal way to sell his credentials. "It was hard because we conceded the goal but the team tried to keep going and I think we fully deserved it".

But Spurs regained their two-goal cushion just four minutes later through Kane, nodding home from close range after Moussa Sissoko had headed the ball back across goal from a Toby Alderweireld cross.
