Kane delighted as Burnley treble puts Tottenham striker on brink of history

While Tottenham were on top, they had to wait until the 69th minute to extend their lead when Kane struck again, while when he grabbed his side's third in the 79th minute he moved level with Alan Shearer for the most Premier League goals in a calendar year, with 36 to his name.

He now shares that record with Newcastle and Blackburn icon Shearer and will attempt to create history against Southampton after Christmas.

Kane has 45, but Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi have 50.

It was also the England international's seventh treble of the year, and took his tally to 53 goals in all competitions, as Spurs ran out 3-0 winners at Turf Moor.

"Just going into this game I thought I can get a couple and then there's Southampton to play".

"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".

"It's a nice present that's for sure".

The Burnley fans felt so anyway, though as Alli went to ground rather easily for the penalty it was hard to know which incident they were most incensed over.

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. Burnley have been doing great this season so we didn't want to give them any incentive. "The challenge, they both went for it and the penalty, from my point of view, was a penalty".

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.
