Gerrard makes bold Kane prediction after starring in Tottenham win v Burnley

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

Kane with 36 goals in 35 games during 2017 now shares the Premier League record of the most goals in a calendar year with Alan Shearer (36 goals in 42 games in 1995). "We didn't want to give them an incentive".

On his side's win, which was sealed after two Kane goals in the final 21 minutes, Pochettino added: "The team were incredible, we dominated the game and deserved the victory".

There was a controversial moment in the fourth minute when Dele Alli was booked for a rash challenge on Burnley's Charlie Taylor, which might have resulted in a red card.

He got his second of the day 21 minutes to stoppage time and completed the hat-trick 10 minutes later after Alli and Ben Davies combined to set him up for the goal.

Tottenham's win moved them up to fifth as they chase a top-four finish and a place in next season's Champions League.

Burnley fans were further incensed when Alli was brought down by Kevin Long just two minutes later, allowing Kane to dispatch his penalty high into the net and put Spurs in front.

"I think he can still improve, he is 24 and the player arrives at their best 27, 28, 29 and it depends how professional you are". 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.

It was the first time the Lillywhites will record back-to-back league wins at Turf Moor since December 1925.

Kane has now equalled Newcastle United legend Shearer's 22-year record and still has one game, at home to Southampton on Boxing Day, to make another record his own.
