THE season may be all but over - but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has said he is still focusing on a win over Leicester City tonight which would ensure his side surpasses the points total which won the East Midlands outfit the title last season.

The Argentine, who took over at the North London outfit from Southampton in 2014, has shaped a young team into genuine trophy contenders.

Tottenham came here to play like they played against Leicester [6-1 win on Thursday], they were in a very good moment with very good players and we only played 15 minutes at the start of the second half, nothing more.

Chelsea are the champions and the table never lies.

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane, right, celebrates scoring his side's second goal against Hull City during the English Premier League soccer match at the KCOM Stadium, Hull, England, Sunday May 21, 2017.

FOUR of Tottenham's six goals on the night were credited to the England global as the blur of perpetual motion that is Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli tore through the Foxes defense.

Hull pulled a goal back through Sam Clucas after an hour, but Spurs scored their fourth nearly immediately as the unmarked Victor Wanyama headed in at the far post and Kane completed his hat-trick as Hull's defence disappeared and left him with only Marshall to beat.

Alli was also recently awarded the PFA Young Player of the Year award for the second season in a row, after scoring 17 goals in 36 Premier League appearances this season.

Son was quickly becoming one of Spurs' biggest threats, and the 29-year-old was at the heart of the opener after he was picked out by Toby Alderweireld with a mouth-watering 60-yard pass, before cutting back to Kane who found the back of the net.

"We will see what happens next season because our dream is to win the Premier League", he added. We just have to congratulate them - they've deserved it this year - but we've got to use that as motivation to come back next year stronger and even better. Our dream and our challenge is to be better this season.

"I wanted to get one or two goals at least and take it to the final game", Kane told Sky Sports.

"I think we are so, so, so calm about our big players and they are so happy here", said the Argentine.
