Kane Hits Hat-trick, Equals Shearer’s Record as Spurs Thrash Burnley

Harry Kane bagged a hat-trick as Tottenham Hotspur moved to the fifth position in the English Premier League following a 3-0 win against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.

It was the first time the Lillywhites will record back-to-back league wins at Turf Moor since December 1925.

The 24-year-old Kane hit the back of the net in the seventh and 69th and 79th minutes of the encounter.

Kane with 36 goals in 35 games during 2017 now shares the Premier League record of the most goals in a calendar year with Alan Shearer (36 goals in 42 games in 1995).

Kane fired the visitors ahead from the spot after seven minutes.

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

Kane doubled Spurs tally 21 minutes from time.

Moussa Sissoko clipped a pass through to the forward who stroked the ball into the bottom corner.

Kane completed his hat-trick 10 minutes later after Alli and Ben Davies combined to set him up for the goal.

He is now level with Liverpool winger Mohammed Sallah at the top of scorers chart with 15 goals.
