Harry Kane hopes to beat Alan Shearer goals record

Share

Hotspur striker Harry Kane could end 2017 as the top calendar year goalscorer in European football after hitting his seventh hat-trick of the year in Saturday's 3-0 win at Burnley.

Kane's triple means he has now scored 53 goals in all competitive games for club and country this year, leaving him just a goal behind Barcelona's Argentine master Lionel Messi.

England superstar Kane will be targeting Premier League history on Boxing Day after his hat-trick saw off Burnley today.

That equalled the record set by Alan Shearer with Blackburn Rovers in 1995.

"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. They are a top-class side and I think they did the basics well, they showed us a lot of respect doing that.

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

Spurs are now only a point behind fourth-place Liverpool and two above Burnley, who sit seventh after suffering only their fifth league defeat of the season.

The 24-year-old broke the deadlock in the sixth minute from the spot, after Dele Alli was bundled over in the box by Kevin Long - although Clarets fans hounded the England man for the remainder of the game for an alleged dive.

- Spurs are the first visiting team to score three or more in a Premier League game at Turf Moor since Crystal Palace in January 2015 (3-2).
