Tottenham made it three wins on the bounce on Sunday after comfortably defeating Leicester 3-0, with Harry Kane emerging as the man of the match after scoring the second and third goals.

Spurs started the game well, with a James Justin own goal following a shot from Son Heung-min giving the home side the lead after just six minutes.

From there, Kane took over.

What was Kane's overall display like?

📷 Match Snapshot

From the get-go, the England striker looked sharp and could regularly be found darting in behind the Leicester defence, usually into the left channel into space to try and collect passes through.

In the latter stages of the first half, he would score two in three minutes.

⚽ ⏱️ 37' Lucas Moura leads a sweeping attack, sprinting through the middle before releasing Kane into the box with a threaded pass in behind, which allows the striker to send a perfect left-footed strike across the keeper into the bottom right corner.

⚽ ⏱️ 40' Three minutes later, Kane would score an absolute beauty. Once again he runs to an area the left of the box before cutting inside on to his right foot to bend a wonderful finish into the bottom right corner, with Kasper Schmeichel left with no chance.

Remarkably, Kane only completed seven passes during his time on the pitch, but wasn't there to be involved in the build up play, he was there to finish the chances, which he did well on the day to earn a 8.3 FC Rating.

He only had three touches of the ball in the opposition box - and two of them were goals.

What Next?

Four goals in two games in excellent form for Kane, but Spurs only have one game of the season remaining in the league against Crystal Palace, so the run of form will be temporary regardless of what he does against the Eagles.
