Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has described Harry Kane as "one of the best strikers in the world".

He said this after the England star put four goals past Wilfred Ndidi and his Leicester City teammates in their Thursday night Premier League clash.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward was in top form as Spurs hammered Leicester City 1-6 at the King Power Stadium on Thursday to take him to 26 strikes for the season, two more than Everton marksman Romelu Lukaku.

Pochettino told Sky Sports News: "It is fantastic for him. It is a season again where he fights to be the top scorer in the Premier League. He is great, he is one of the best strikers in the world. He will try to keep going in the next game and try to finish in the best way.

"He was injured two times in the season but he is so fresh now and he is trying to score a lot of goals to finish at the top. We have another opportunity against Hull City (on Sunday).

"It is very clear we will keep the players we want to keep and we will maybe sell the players we want to sell. We are so, so calm about our key players. They are happy here, we have an exciting project."

Kane has scored a total of 92 goals in just 163 Spurs appearances.
