Leicester City was the latest to experience the Kane Magic, which appeared as early as six minutes into the game:
Striker Tactics 101: Be in the right place at the right time.
Kane didn't take long to provide an encore:
Not the prettiest of goals but they all count as one. As they say, you can't win if you don't play. Same with scoring.
Leicester pulled one back to keep the game interesting.
Now, while that's a pretty goal from the Foxes, it also underscores the point that Spurs' back four won't be representing anyone in the Olympic sprints anytime soon.
Anyway, that goal by Jamie Vardy set the stage for the home side to level the score 12 minutes later:
Spurs looked like men making room for the king on this one. Calm finish by Wes Morgan, though.
Kane then completed his hat trick with an unstoppable penalty.
Striker Tactic 102: Blast the penalty kicks.
Leicester finally ran out of gas, which led to their dragging one in on their own net.
The appropriately named Jeff Schlupp looked like he was giving the ball a police escort.
Leicester did notch a consolation goal through David Nugent, but by then, it was merely a stat-padder:
If only consolation goals counted as two. Still, it was the goal of the night and will be useful come contract time.
For both teams now, the fight is on but for different purposes. Leicester clearly envies Spurs for theirs.
