Harry Kane admit Alan Shearer's inspired landmark treble

Jeff Hendrick Stephen Ward Burnley

The Spurs star opened the scoring with a first-half penalty and struck twice after the break to make it 36 league goals in 2017 - equalling the record Shearer set in 1995.

The striker netted a hat trick as Spurs saw off the Clarets 3-0 at Turf Moor, equalling the record for the most Premier League goals in a calendar year, levelling Alan Shearer's tally of 36 strikes in as many weeks, a achievement which has stood for 22 years.

Only PSG hitman Edinson Cavani and Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi (50 each) have scored more club goals in Europe's top five leagues in all competitions in 2017 than Kane, who has 46.

"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".

"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".

Spurs took the lead when Harry Kane scored from the penalty spot after a controversial decision, with Dele Alli judged to have been fouled by Kevin Long in the seventh minute.

Tottenham's win moved them up to fifth as they chase a top-four finish and a place in next season's Champions League. Tough game, we knew it'd be tough.

"I think you need more than a miracle to catch City, but we are focused on ourselves and trying to come into a better position than we are in now".

Sean Dyche's team are in good form and have only lost one of their last eight home games in the League. 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.
