Tottenham striker Harry Kane is targeting Premier League history on Boxing Day after his hat-trick earned a 3-0 win at Burnley.

Kane struck his seventh treble of 2017, taking his tally to 36 league goals in the calendar year - a record he now shares with Alan Shearer.

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

He told BT Sport: "A few people have been speaking about it. I came into this game hoping I could get a couple and take it to Southampton, when I had the three I wanted to get the fourth.

"But it's a great day for us, a great win and an important three points.

"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.

"It was a great way to finish before Christmas. Burnley have been doing great this season so we didn't want to give them any incentive.

"We knew if we kept going the chances would keep coming and thankfully we took them, so it was a great result.

"It was a difficult 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."

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino said he is running out of words to praise Kane.

"I have to congratulate Harry, 36 goals, he has the same record that Alan achieved," the Argentinean said.

"It's difficult to find another word to describe him. I have been praising him for three and a half years, he is fantastic.

"A hat-trick is nice for him but he could have scored more than three."

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

"I am happy, we needed this type of victory and today was an important three points."

Burnley boss Sean Dyche added: "The best side won on the day. They are a top-class side and I think they did the basics well, they showed us a lot of respect doing that.

"They knew they had to earn it and they did. It worked out being a tough day for us."

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.

Dyche said: "It's a real tough one, he's out of control when he challenges, he's never going to get the ball.

"I think it was a tough one. By the modern rules, he got lucky with it. It's the old favourite - an orange card."
