Pochettino challenges Kane to score 30 next season

Already relegated Hull City host high-flying Tottenham Hotspur at the KC Stadium in their final Premier League match of the season looking to give their fans something to smile about ahead of next season.

The England worldwide won the Golden Boot last season too but an injury in the middle of the campaign hampered his chances of retaining it and it looked like going towards Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

Having thrashed Leicester 6-1 in midweek, Spurs seemed content with their lot at the start of the second half, but Clucas' deflected strike beating Lloris only served to reawaken them.

Spurs brought on Moussa Sissoko and Mousa Dembele for Dele Alli and Eric Dier, and eventually Vincent Janssen came on for Kane, denying him the chance for a fourth goal. "He's one of the best strikers in the world".

The England forward's tally has been amassed from just 29 league appearances and Kane appears certain to retain the trophy he won with a total of 25 goals last season. He is going to learn and that is the most important thing for players.

The seventh goal enabled them to pip champions Chelsea as the league's highest scorers with 86 goals.

"We played really well, everyone wanted the ball, everyone wanted to play and we really enjoyed it and Harry Kane, I can't say anything, he's unbelievable", Son told the club's official website.

The challenge next season for Kane and his team mates is to prove they can be as effective in a new temporary home at Wembley as they have been at White Hart Lane, which is being demolished and replaced after 118 years.

The result ensured the Blues became the first side in a 38-game season to win 30 games. It is a big achievement and it helped the team to play well and achieve second place.

"I've had no other offers at this point, we will have one more meeting (with the owners) on Wednesday then we will announce our decision". Replays showed Wanyama was offside, but Andre Marriner allowed the goal to stand.
