Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane looked back to his best with two quality goals as his side dealt a huge blow to Leicester City's top-four hopes with a 3-0 victory in the Premier League on Sunday.

Kane struggled for sharpness when the season resumed last month, a legacy of the serious hamstring injury that sidelined him from Jan. 1, but the striker produced a dazzling display as Spurs boosted their Europa League qualifying hopes.

Leicester's James Justin deflected Son Heung-min's shot into his own goal after six minutes to give Spurs the perfect start and England captain Kane's clinical double before halftime put Jose Mourinho's side in complete control.

He has now scored four times in two games and has 23 in all competitions this season.

"I'm feeling as good as I've done for the last four or five years," Kane, who notched up 200 career club league goals against Newcastle United in midweek, told Sky Sports.

"I like to do my talking on the pitch and that's what we did today. It's good that we are finishing strongly."

Leicester have looked certainties for a top-four finish for virtually the whole season but now are at risk of missing out on a Champions League spot.

They 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.

Spurs are finishing strongly, winning four of their last five games, and moved two points above Wolverhampton Wanderers into sixth with 58, closing in on Europa League qualification.

Tottenham's second goal originated from a Leicester corner. Spurs won possession and Giovani Lo Celso burst forward and released Lucas Moura to slide in Kane who fired a left-foot shot across Schmeichel and into the bottom corner.

Kane's second goal was majestic.

Again picked out by Moura wide on the left, he cut in and curled a right-footer inside the post.

Leicester dominated possession after the interval but made few inroads against a well-drilled Tottenham side.
