Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted to oversee his side’s 3-0 thumping of Burnley on Saturday, and believes the result is a platform for the club to build on.

Kane converted an early penalty and struck twice more in the second half to match Alan Shearer’s feat of 36 set in 1995.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Pochettino said: “It was so important to us to perform how we did, to recover our feeling and level. It was massive for us. The team today fought, it was a massive battle, Burnley are doing a fantastic season, for me it is an amazing performance.

“The feeling was really good. We are in a good position now, we are fighting for the top four, this shows everyone we are there, now we need to be solid and consistent, today is a good platform to go up.”

Harry Kane stole the show once more, scoring three and threatening throughout, and the Spurs boss mentioned how he sees the England forward surpassing Shearer’s Premier League goal scoring record in the very near future.

“He is amazing, a fantastic player, he needs one more to be above Alan, we will see the next game.

“But it is fantastic for him, he could have scored more than three today because the chances were there. I was a little bit frustrated we have not scored more – there was a massive chance for Son, for Sissoko, I feel sorry for them, but they need to keep going and the next games they are going to score, no problem.”
