Harry’s magic sees Tottenham Hotspur win 3-0, equals Premier League record with hat-trick

first_imgHarry Kane was the hero for Tottenham Hotspur with his hat-trick as they won their first away match in three months against Burnley at Turf Moor.It was Kane’s seventh hat-trick saw the English striker equalling Premier League great, Alan Shearer’s record of most goals scored scored in a calendar year. His three goals took his tally to 36 goals in 2017, to match the same number Shearer had managed in 1995.Spurs’ win, their first on the road since their 4-0 victory at Huddersfield at the end of September, moved the London club up to fifth in the league, a point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.Kane, who oozed confidence and class throughout, put Spurs ahead from the penalty spot in the seventh minute after a controversial penalty award when Dele Alli went down under a challenge from Burnley defender Kevin Long.�??�️ @HKane on his fine hat-trick, a great win at Turf Moor and chasing a @PremierLeague record. #OneOfOurOwn pic.twitter.com/ofxCShvzey- Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 23, 2017Alli 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.While Burnley’s supporters booed England forward Alli throughout the game, Spurs had several chances to extend their lead but Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min wasted good opportunities.Sissoko was clear through on goal but Burnley keeper Nick Pope produced a fine double save to keep the advantage to a single goal at the break.Son should have doubled the lead in the 56th minute but blasted over the bar after Serge Aurier had put him through with only Pope to beat.advertisementInjuries and suspensions may have caught up with Burnley, who have enjoyed an impressive season so far and are still in seventh place, and Sean Dyche’s side certainly missed suspended central defender James Tarkowski.It was left to Kane to finally confirm the difference in class between the two sides, making it 2-0 in the 69th minute with a trademark finish after being put through by Sissoko.The England forward wrapped up the win with another confident finish for his hat-trick goal after neat work from Ben Davies and Alli.Alli was jeered as he was substituted but, by then, the early controversy seemed irrelevant.Burnley substitute Sam Vokes had a late header disallowed for a foul on Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris but the game was already well beyond the home side who now face a trip to Manchester United on Boxing Day.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
