Tottenham defeated Leicester City in the Premier League as the masterclass from striker Harry Kane helped the side secure a commanding victory by 3-0 on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho’s men were completely relentless at their home as they put a dent on the Foxes’ chances of qualifying for the Champions League.
The match started off and in just the sixth minute when Harry Kane charged towards the box and also managed to find clearance from City defenders, then combined with Ryan Bennett before charging towards the goal. Kane passed the ball to Min Son before the striker took a shot which deflected from the hit Foxes’ defender James Justin inside the goal, resulting in his own goal. Brendan Rogers’ men had an infuriating start of the match as the scores were 1-0 in favour of Mourinho’s men.
Foxes’ defence again lacked intent just like their last match as the second goal came during the 37th minute and this time Spurs had Lucas Moura sliding the ball towards Kane which was played outside by Harvey Barnes. Kane took the charge of the ball and netted it with a fierce kick and registered his first goal of the match and also doubled the lead to 2-0.

Three minutes later, the duo again charged down for another goal which was left unattempted by the clueless defence of the Foxes, subsequently resulting in 3-0 before the halftime.
The second half saw both teams goal-less but then the home team had nothing to worry about, and the Rogers’ depleting team failed to create any magical moment to stage a comeback. The match ended with the final scores of 3-0 and Harry Kane was adjudged the Man of the Match.
It was also a special occasion for the Spurs’ defender Toby Alderweireld as he completed 200 games with the club in his career. Spurs also registered their fourth consecutive Premier League win at Hotspur Stadium and ended their season’s last home game with a dominant victory.
On the other hand, Rogers’ side will have to depend on Manchester United’s carelessness in their next match in order to be in the race of Champions League qualification when Solskjaer’s side West Ham United on Wednesday.
