Kane enters Tottenham's game away against Hull City on Sunday with a two-goal advantage on Everton's Romelu Lukaku, with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez three goals off the lead.
Tottenham Hotspur reiterated their stance as one of the Premier League's elite sides with a crushing 6-1 win over Leicester City on Thursday night.
The race for the Golden Boot will go down to the Premier League's final match day with Harry Kane entering in position to defend the honour from last season.
I wanted to get one or two goals at least and take it to the final game, Kane told Sky Sports. - Kane is the fifth different player to score three-plus hat-tricks in a Premier League season. Next season hopefully I can get going in that first game, get a couple and go from there.
"Hopefully I can get the Golden Boot and hopefully Hugo Lloris can get the Golden Glove".
Tottenham have played their last game of the season against relegated sides for two years running and this season they will look to do better than last season and manage to get a win against Hull City unlike what they did last season against Newcastle.
It was the kind of performance that Pochettino believes further enhances Kane's reputation as one of the world's best finishers. But for his well-documented injuries he might well have reached 100 Premier League goals already, but Sturridge is still only 27 and will be in demand if he moves on from Liverpool this summer.More news: Fallen officers, families left behind, remembered

The victory had little outcome for Spurs who are guaranteed second place, although Leicester's 18th defeat of the season equalled Liverpool's top-flight record, set in 1906-07, for reigning champions in a 38-game campaign.
"When we play free-flowing football like that, some of the play around the box in the first half...every man was on their game and it's fantastic to see", said Kane. We are so, so calm about our key players. We were talking a lot about last season when we finished so badly.
"We have unbelievable facilities, but if some club is paying double the salary, then how can you convince them?"
"It's always important to finish in a better mood, especially when we move to Wembley next season".
It took his tally to 26 for the season - despite missing nearly three months of the season through injury!
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has "no reason" to leave the club at the end of the season, manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted.
