Harry Kane eyes Premier League goals century by end of next season

"For us to keep our best players, a lot of clubs are interested in them but the players we want to keep will be here next season", Pochettino told BBC Sport.

If they avoid defeat at Hull, they will equal a club record for fewest defeats in a season (4), set in 1919.

Kane's four-goal salvo saw him go from two behind Everton's Romelu Lukaku to move two ahead.

Boss Marco Silva had made a good fist of keeping Hull in the top-flight following his appointment as manager in January, with the Tigers particularly impressing on home soil.

However, the former Southampton man has been a virtual ever-present in Mauricio Pochettino's side and starred for the Premier League title chasers.

Evandro, Harry Maguire and Abel Hernandez all major doubts while Lazar Markovic, Ryan Mason, David Meyler and Moses Odubajo remain long-term absentees.

South Korea's Son Heung-Min scored twice for Tottenham, who swept to their 11th win in their last 12 league games after Leicester's Ben Chilwell briefly reduced the deficit in the second half.

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

"He was injured two times in the season but he is so fresh now and he is trying to score a lot of goals to finish at the top".

But the host's comeback was halted four minutes later, this time Kane showing all the qualities of a goal-poacher when he dispatched his header from six-yards out after Victor Wanyama found the Englishman at the back-post.

Back to the present, in a season where the Premier League title has already been decided, Kane has the chance to give Spurs fans something to cheer about if he successfully defends the Golden Boot.

Kane's run to the top of the goal scorer's list is all the more remarkable due to the fact that he's done it in an injury shortened season. So there is still all to play for in my eyes but I could not have dreamt of scoring four.

Kane is in the form of his life with Tottenham as he sits on top of the Premier League scoring charts with 26 goals.

What's more, Kane was sidelined with multiple ankle injuries that kept him out of eight league games in September and March, but still he managed to score 32 goals in all competitions - his best return in a single season.

Tottenham will want to end on a high and I think the players will by trying to help Kane win the Golden Boot. "If not I will stay calm and see what happens".
