Harry Kane scored four goals in Thursday’s 6-1 win at Leicester to move to the top the golden boot standings, ahead of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. The England striker, who was the Premier League’s top scorer last season with 25, has scored two goals more than Lukaku and three more than Sanchez. If Kane scores twice against Hull on Sunday, he will have scored the most goals in a Premier League season, since Alan Shearer scored 34 in the 1994/95 season.

There could also be a remote chance of a Champions League play-off game if results go a certain way. Be sure to watch the exciting times tomorrow.
