Tottenham's Harry Kane celebrates scoring their fifth goal to complete his hat trick with Filip Lesniak
Romelu Lukaku entered last night in pole position to win the golden boot, two ahead of Harry Kane.
This morning he is looking up at the Tottenham striker, who scored four times against Leicester to move two ahead of the Everton striker.
Kane has 26 goals to Lukaku's 24, a remarkable achievement considering his two spells out injured this season.
Everton's Romelu Lukaku
The Tottenham striker's haul is bad news for rivals Arsenal, who are now going to face an extra motivated Lukaku at the weekend.
Arsenal host Everton this weekend needing a win to stand a chance of securing a top four spot and earning Champions League qualification.

They also need relegated Middlesbrough to do them a favour against Liverpool, a situation outside of their control.
It would be awful for Arsenal if Middlesbrough did manage to stop Liverpool, and the Gunners fluffed their lines against Everton.
Lukaku's desire to overhaul Harry Kane means there is an increased motivation for him to really bring his A game at The Emirates.
On the last day last season it was Spurs who suffered final day heartbreak. This time they can play without pressure while rivals Arsenal scramble to claim a top four spot.
If Lukaku scores the goals which prevents them doing so, Harry Kane might just be responsible.
