Tottenham striker Harry Kane proud to reach Shearer goals record

Tottenham hero Harry Kane was delighted with his hat-trick in victory at Burnley.

Kane equalled Alan Shearer's record for Premier League goals in a calendar year with a hat-trick in Tottenham's 3-0 win at Burnley.

He said, "It's a nice present that's for sure. Tough game, we knew it'd be tough - it was 3-0 but we could have had more.

"I am aware I've equalled Alan Shearer's record [of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year]. Just going into this game I thought I can get a couple and then there's Southampton to play.

"You always want to finish a game off away from home. We didn't want to give them an incentive.

"I thought Dele Alli played great today. The challenge in the first half they both went for it and I thought the penalty was a penalty.

"It was a difficult place to come. Let's see what happens on Boxing Day."
