Tottenham’s Historical 6-1 Defeat of Leicester City

Harry Kane scored a hat trick and one, Son Heung scored a brace as Spurs demolished Leicester City by 6-1 on their home ground, which ironically was a celebration ground by this time last season when the Foxes had already been declared champions of England for the first time.

With his four goals against Leicester, the 23-year-old England international (Kane) is the fifth player in Premier League history to score 25+ goals in successive seasons (Robbie Fowler, Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Robin van Persie all completed that feat before him).

His goals in the match also make him to score more club goals against Leicester City than any other club in the premier league, a total of 10 goals so far.

 

With one more match left to end the season, Tottenham now have three players with 20 or more goals in all competitions this season (Kane, Alli & Son); more than any other club in the Premier League or Football League

The high-margin defeat by the Spurs is the joint-heaviest defeat in Premier League history for a reigning champion, the first was Manchester United’s 6-1 loss to Manchester City in October 2011 when United were reigning champions under Sir Alex Ferguson.
