Kane tells Sanchez and Lukaku “I’m in the driving seat” as Golden Boot race heats up

Date Posted,May 17, 2017

Harry Kane sent a message of intent to both Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot, saying “I’m in the driving seat.”

The Tottenham striker, who won the award last season, smashed four past Kasper Schmeichel in his side’s 6-1 win over Leicester City on Thursday.

The goals see the 23-year-old storm to the top of the Premier League top scorers table with a staggering 26 for the season.

After the game, Kane told Sky Sports reporters: “I am in the driving seat.

“But there is still one game to play, I’m not resting on my laurels, we still have Hull to play where I will hopefully get four more.

“We had been talking about (the season not being over) during the weekend.

“Hopefully I can get the Golden Boot and hopefully Hugo Lloris can get the Golden Glove. It is disappointing to concede but hopefully we can keep a clean sheet against Hull.”

The Spurs striker has currently scored one more than he did last year, and has another game ahead of him as Spurs prepare for the final day of the season.

Kane opened his Premier League account back in September, as Tottenham battered Stoke City 4-0 at the Bet365 Stadium.

And he hasn’t looked back since, scoring an additional 25 goals to propel Spurs to second in the table. He is now very much the favourite to win the award, having scored two more than Romelu Lukaku on 24 and Alexis Sanchez on 23.

It was another devastating display from Mauricio Pochettino’s second-placed team as they showed no signs of letting up despite missing out on the title.

Son Heung-Min also scored a brace for the visitors to end the Foxes’ perfect home record in the league since Craig Shakespeare was handed the caretaker reins.

But it was man-of-the-moment Kane who stole the show as he hailed this season as his best ever.

“It probably could’ve been more,” he added. “It is the first time in my professional career that I’ve done that.

“I think this is my best season, I missed 11 weeks out and to score the most in a Premier League campaign, I worked hard during my injury to ensure I came back in better shape than I started.”
