Harry Kane: Tottenham striker wins Premier League Golden Boot award for third time
#COYS #Tottenham #kane
Kane scored the opening goal in Spurs' 4-2 win over Leicester City on the final day of Premier League season; Kane has now won the award in three seasons - 2015-16, 2016-17, 2020-21 - becoming only the third player to do so after Thierry Henry (4) and Alan Shearer (3)
In a recent interview with Gary Neville's The Overlap YouTube channel, Kane said: ""When I watch (Kevin) de Bruyne play he's a special, special player and some of the balls I see him put in for City are just a striker's dream if I'm honest.
Leicester were denied a place in the Champions League for the second season running on a dramatic final day in the Premier League with Gareth Bale scoring two late goals to give Tottenham victory.
Starting the last round of fixtures in fifth place, the Foxes knew that their best hope of finishing in the top four was a win, while hoping that Liverpool and Chelsea slipped up in their respective final games.
Chelsea did leave the door open, losing 2-1 at Aston Villa, but Leicester were unable to do their part, falling to defeat at the King Power Stadium, despite leading twice, to finish a point behind Thomas Tuchel's Blues.
It means the Europa League awaits the Foxes again.
It was Bale who hammered in the final nails, finishing low into the bottom corner to put Spurs ahead in the game for the first time in the 87th minute, before following up his own shot that had hit the post to add a second in stoppage time.
In truth, though, it was an own goal from Kasper Schmeichel that really ripped the heart out of City's challenge, with the keeper punching a corner into his own net under pressure to make the score 2-2 with 14 minutes left.
Prior to that, with Chelsea losing at Villa, two coolly taken penalties from Jamie Vardy - both of which he was fouled for - looked to be sending the Foxes into Europe's premier competition for just the second time.
"He's an outstanding player with the ball, off the ball, pressing, but his delivery is as good as I've ever seen to be honest."
