Burnley 0 Tottenham 3: Kane hat-trick sends Spurs above Arsenal

Sean Dyche's side have lost just two of their last nine games

"We didn't want to give them an incentive".

England worldwide Harry Kane netted his 34th, 35th and 36th league goals of 2017 to equal Shearer's 1995 mark as Spurs thrashed Burnley on Saturday to move up to fifth in the table.

Kane's second in the 69th minute all but wrapped up the points and he completed his treble 11 minutes from time.

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.

Alli was lucky to escape a red card in the defeat to Manchester City and he was perhaps fortunate only to be booked after just four minutes in Lancashire, when he lunged into a challenge on Charlie Taylor. For Burnley, this was a reality check.

Kevin Long tripped Dele Alli in the box and centre referee Micheal Oliver awarded a penalty afterwards which was clinically dispatched by the Englishman. Sissoko intercepted the ball near the halfway line and sent a fine throughball to Kane, who kept his composure to slot beneath Pope from inside the penalty area.

Jonghyun's SHINee bandmates lay him to rest in funeral service
SHINee singer Kim Jong-hyun, known mononymously as Jonghyun , was laid to rest early Thursday (December 21) in Seoul. The procession began at the Asan Medical Centre in Seoul, where hundreds had gathered to pay their respects.

Having picked up the top flight golden boot for two successive years, Gerrard says that Kane has got another 10 years of goal scoring talent in him, and has boldly predicted that he will remain as the leading goalscorer in the top flight during that time.

Kane now has one chance to break Shearer's record, with Tottenham at home to out-of-form Southampton on Boxing Day.

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

- Burnley conceded as many goals in this game as they had in their previous nine at Turf Moor combined this season.

"It was 3-0 but we could have had more", Kane added.
