King Harry Kane hits hat-trick against Burnley

When you look at their team, they are a top-class team and put in a great performance against us and made it really tough.

Kane struck his seventh treble of 2017, taking his tally to 36 league goals in the calendar year - a record he now shares with Alan Shearer.

Kane at last produced a composed finish after Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min had wasted one-on-one opportunities to make the points safe, firing low into the net on the counter-attack.

Spurs are now only a point behind fourth-place Liverpool and two above Burnley, who sit seventh after suffering only their fifth league defeat of the season.

Alli had already enraged the home support four minutes earlier when he lunged late into a challenge on Burnley fullback Charlie Taylor and received a yellow card.

Kevin Long tripped Dele Alli in the box and centre referee Micheal Oliver awarded a penalty afterwards which was clinically dispatched by the Englishman.

It was the first time the Lillywhites will record back-to-back league wins at Turf Moor since December 1925. Even during my time at Spurs I'm surprised by him.

The England worldwide can surpass Shearer's tally against Southampton on Boxing Day - and given the form he's in, it would take a courageous man to bet against him.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted to oversee his side's 3-0 thumping of Burnley on Saturday, and believes the result is a platform for the club to build on.

"He is wonderful, a fantastic player, he needs one more to be above Alan, we will see the next game", Pochettino told the BBC, when asked about Kane.
