When Kane arrived at Leicester for last night's fixture, he was two goals behind Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot, but he scored his first four-goal haul in a resounding 6-1 victory, taking the lead with just one round of fixtures to go.
But unfortunately for the north Londoners, who have won 11 of their last 12 league games, champions Chelsea have been even more consistent.
Kane has now scored 96 goals for Spurs at the age of just 23, and is the first Tottenham player since Jimmy Greaves in 1968/69 to score four hat-tricks in a season. They are so happy here and we are building a very exciting project.
"The players must feel they are part of us and want to share in our success", Pochettino added.
"Hopefully I can get the Golden Boot and hopefully (Tottenham goalkeeper) Hugo Lloris can get the Golden Glove (for the most clean sheets)".
There was still time for Kane for netting two more clinical strikes, both from the edge of the box. There are no positives.
Now, after four goals against the former Champions Leicester, you could certainly consider Harry the outstanding favourite.
And Pochettino hopes the experience will stand them in good stead next term, when they have to play their home games at Wembley while White Hart Lane is rebuilt.
The prolific England striker was at his scintillating best on Thursday night (18 May) as he notched four goals to help Spurs thrash Leicester 6-1 at the King Power Stadium.
Tottenham challenged Leicester throughout their title-winning campaign previous year and the two sides drew at White Hart Lane earlier this season.
The Foxes pulled one back through Chilwell, but Kane restored his side's two-goal advantage by reacting quickest to a loose ball in the area.
That's ten more than they achieved last season and just 1 short of the total Leicester needed to win the title a year ago so it would still be a huge sign of improvement if Spurs could hit the 86 point mark.
Kane headed in from point-blank range after more neat work from Son and the South Korean grabbed his own double in the 71st.
Lloris failed to clear his lines after racing out to challenge Vardy - who looked to have strayed offside in the build-up - and when Wilfred Ndidi scuffed a shot towards Chilwell, the full-back showed great composure to steady himself before slotting into the net.
With the end of the league campaign in sight, the Argentine is already looking ahead to next season, with Dele Alli for one having said he believes the club is ready to go one better next season and win the title.
