Kane, of course, is currently sitting at the summit of the top scorers list and has every chance of claiming this year's Golden Boot award. Heung-min, meanwhile, doubled Spurs' lead with a fine finish just minutes before half-time. 

If Tottenham manage to hold out and secure all three points against their London rivals, then they will remain in the title race.
