LONDON – Harry Kane struck twice as Tottenham Hotspur dealt a huge blow to Leicester City's hopes of a top-four finish with a 3-0 victory in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Leicester's James Justin deflected Son Heung-min's shot into his own goal after six minutes and Kane gave his side a commanding lead with two quality strikes before halftime.

England skipper Kane took his tally to four in two games after scoring twice in his side's 3-1 win at Newcastle United.

Leicester remain fourth but are level on 62 points with fifth-placed Manchester United who have two games left to play to Leicester's one. They meet on the final day of the season. Manchester United, who play Chelsea in the FA Cup on Sunday, will move into fourth should they win their game at Old Trafford against West Ham.

Spurs are finishing the season strongly, winning four of their last five games, and moved above Wolverhampton Wanderers into sixth place, closing in on Europa League qualification.
