Hot-shot Kane chases golden boot
game but now I’m in the driving seat,” said Kane.
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is battling Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois for the golden glove, but after conceding against Leicester, the France international has 15 clean sheets compared to Courtois’ 16.
Lloris though, is a doubt for the trip to Hull after suffering a knee injury at Leicester.
Pochettino would have hoped to have something more significant to fight for on the final day of the season after pushing Chelsea for so long in the title race.
In the end it was the defeat at West Ham two weeks ago that allowed Antonio Conte’s side to secure the championship without being forced to suffer a nervous run-in.
Pochettino, though, can take heart from his dynamic young side’s continued progress this season.
Tottenham’s wage bill is less than half that of Chelsea’s, highlighting the Argentine’s achievement in getting the club to punch above their financial weight.
The challenge will be to maintain that improvement next season and Kane is among the Tottenham stars to have voiced their determination to stay.
However, Kyle Walker is a target for Manchester City, who are likely to offer the England rightback the chance to double his wages.
Meanwhile, Marco Silva is set to confirm his departure from Hull next week, paving the way for the Portuguese coach to open talks with soon to be managerless Watford.
The 39-year-old will meet the club’s board on Wednesday, but is ready to inform them of his decision to leave.
Silva, who took charge of Hull in January, has been offered an extension to his contract, which is due to expire at the end of the season, despite his failure to prevent the club from dropping back into the Championship.
The former Olympiakos manager is ready to speak to Watford, who will part company with current boss Walter Mazzarri after today’s final round of games.
Asked if the third-bottom Hull can match his ambitions in the second tier, Silva said: “That’s not an easy question.
“The chairman has shown an interest in keeping our staff, but we will talk again next week. It’s impossible to talk about other clubs at this stage because Hull deserve my respect.
“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.” AFP
I was looking to get one or two at least and take it into the last game but now I’m in the driving seat.
