Burnley 0-3 Spurs player ratings, stats and reaction: Kane moves closer to goalscoring feat as Spurs leapfrog rivals with win

Spurs had Harry Kane to thank tonight, as the England ace bagged a hat-trick to help his side beat Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor.

Kane opened the scoring in the first half, as the England international buried a penalty past Tom Pope to put the away side one goal to the good.

Kane then bagged his second of the evening, as the striker was put through by Moussa Sissoko before placing the ball into the net to double his side’s advantage.

The 24-year-old then scored his and Spurs’ third of the match, after the forward strode into the Burnley penalty area before hammering the ball home with his left to secure all three points for Pochettino’s side.

Kane’s third goal was his 53rd of 2017, meaning that he is just two goals off of ending the year as Europe’s top goalscorer, with the win now seeing his side leapfrog rivals Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League.
