Premier League Head-to-Head: Grosicki (Hull City) v Alli

Harry Kane

The goal was essentially meaningless in the overall match, but meant that Lloris would not share the Premier League Golden Glove with Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois.

Tottenham swept forward, Eric Dier's neat crossfield pass picked out Kieran Trippier on the right and his measured ball in was turned home by Kane for his 28th Premier League goal of the season.

Asked if the third-bottom Hull can match his ambitions in the second tier, Silva said: "That's not an easy question".

That performance took Kane's haul to 26 goals and underlined his importance to Mauricio Pochettino's side. "He's one of the best strikers in the world".

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed his delight at retaining the Premier League Golden Boot after finishing the season with 29 league goals. It is hard to say who is the best but he is already one of the best.

"In every moment in life and every moment for the club it is important to learn and to understand why things happen and learn for the next time not to make the same mistakes".

Then when you look at the hosts, their top goalscorer in the league this season is Robert Snodgrass with seven goals, who left the club in January, and that will show everyone the big difference in the two sides.

Pochettino said Kane was struggling in the closing stages and that was why he made a decision to withdraw him with 11 minutes left. The ex-Swansea City number one has played 11 times so far this term and last appeared in a last-gasp 3-1 victory over his former club in early April after Lloris was struck down by illness.

The challenge next season for Kane and his team mates is to prove they can be as effective in a new temporary home at Wembley as they have been at White Hart Lane, which is being demolished and replaced after 118 years.

The ultimate goal might not have been reached, but Silva's work has endeared him to the Hull fans while enhancing his own reputation.

"Next Sunday we will play our last game of the season in our stadium in front of our fans".

"Since I came they came to support the team and we were stronger in our stadium".

"It's not normal because we didn't achieve our goal", he said.
