Preview: Hull City v Tottenham Hotspur

While the title race is over and the trophy is headed to Stamford Bridge, Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane has warned Hull City that the club still have something to play for.

The two clubs meet on the final day of the season at the KCOM Stadium on Sunday in a 4pm kickoff.

Kane scored four goals as Spurs hammered outgoing league champions Leicester City on Thursday, becoming only the fifth player to score 25 league goals in successive seasons.

Having leapfrogged Romelu Lukaku in the race for the top goalscorer award with 26 strikes, Kane wants another quartet of goals against the Tigers which will take him to 30 for the season.

"First and foremost, we wanted to come here and put in a good performance and win," Kane told Sky Sports after their game against the team that pipped them to the title last season.

"Of course I’d been thinking a lot about getting on the scoresheet and it’s the first time I’ve scored four goals [in a game]. It’s a good moment to do it.

"There’s still one game left to play so I’m not resting on my laurels. I’ve got to go out against Hull and get four more, hopefully."

The game against Hull is all but academic with nothing at stake for both clubs. Spurs are guaranteed to finish runners up to Chelsea, while third from bottom Hull, who have already been relegated, cannot finish any higher or lower.

Tottenham’s form suggests that Marco Silva’s men are in for a tough time against a side that’s high on confidence and scoring freely – having won four of their last five games.

But, Tigers midfielder Sam Clucas said they will do their best to perform well for their fans at the KCOM Stadium against the Lilywhites.

“We won’t be going out there to just lay down because we’ve been relegated,” the 26-year-old told his club’s website.

“It’s a home game and out supporters who have been magnificent for us all season will be there. We owe them and ourselves a performance."

The Englishman went on to describe relegation from the top flight as being the lowest point in his career, adding that everyone at the club was gutted.

"We were all devastated after the game and the journey home was horrible. There was just silence really, and the realisation that there is nothing we can do to change it now."

Hull will continue to be without injured on-loan Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic for the clash, while Mauricio Pochettino’s men have no fresh injury concerns.
