King Harry Kane hits hat-trick against Burnley

Jeff Hendrick Stephen Ward Burnley

Following today's win, Kane said: "A few people have been speaking about it".

"I was a little bit frustrated we have not scored more - there was a massive chance for [Heung-Min] Son, for [Moussa] Sissoko, I feel sorry for them, but they need to keep going and the next games they are going to score, no problem". Tough game, we knew it'd be tough.

"It was a great way to finish before Christmas". 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.

In the other Premier League games, Brighton pipped Watford 1-0, Southampton drew 1-1 with Huddersfield, Stoke City defeated West Brom 3-1, Swansea City drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace, while West Ham lost 2-3 to Newcastle.

"It was a hard place to come, not many teams win here, we wanted to put that right and that puts us back up to fifth, let's see what happens on Boxing Day".

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino said he is running out of words to praise Kane.

Speaking to BT Sport after the victory at Turf Moor, the England worldwide said: "I am aware I've equalled Alan Shearer's record".

"It's hard to find words to describe Harry Kane".

"Not only the three points, I think the way we achieved the victory was very good". The hat-trick is nice for him but we could have scored more than three.

Pochettino was delighted with Spurs' comprehensive win over Burnley, but believes they could and should have scored more goals. While Sean Dyche's side could justifiably grumble about some refereeing decisions that went against them, they could not dispute that the better team won.

"They knew they had to earn it and they did".

There was a controversial moment in the fourth minute when Dele Alli was booked for a rash challenge on Burnley's Charlie Taylor, which might have resulted in a red card.
