Harry Kane Player of the Round after hat-trick against Burnley

Kane hat-trick hands Tottenham win at Turf Moor

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed that he has his sights set on overtaking Alan Shearer for the most Premier League goals scored in a calendar year.

And now he will attempt to create history against Southampton on Boxing Day.

A hat-trick from Harry Kane ensured Tottenham moved above Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League with a 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Pochettino said: "It was so important to us to perform how we did, to recover our feeling and level".

Unlike any of his rivals for the record, however, Kane still has a game left to play this year - a home game against Southampton on December 26.

Speaking to BT Sport after the victory at Turf Moor, the England global said: "I am aware I've equalled Alan Shearer's record".

Mourinho laughed then added: "I know that I would never be in the top group but in that middle group we would like to be". First their flight to Bristol before Wednesday's defeat in the Carabao Cup was diverted to Cardiff because of fog.

"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 for sure, it was a tough game, we knew it would be a tough game before but we know it could have been a lot more, we missed some good chances".

Kane's treble was enough to give Spurs their first back-to-back wins at Turf Moor for 92 years and lift them above Sean Dyche's side and the Gunners in the standings.

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

Burnley began the match as the higher-placed team in the table but were behind in the seventh minute when Kane converted a penalty controversially won by Dele Alli. "We need to help him more". "The challenge in the first half they both went for it and I thought the penalty was a penalty".
