Footballer Harry Kane Excited to Be Compared to Messi and Ronaldo

Footballer Harry Kane Excited to Be Compared to Messi and Ronaldo

Any glimpse of optimism from Southampton were all but instantaneously extinguished as Kane completed his second hat-trick in three days, Alli released the striker through on goal with Forster quick off his line and just coolly lofted over his compatriot to complete his eighth trio of the calender year. He surpassed Lionel Messi as the highest scorer in Europe this year with a tap-in from Son Heung-Min's cross after a brilliant build-up involving Eriksen and Dele Alli. You deserve to hold the record of most Premier League goals in a calendar year. Breaking records for fun.

But Spurs' complacency quickly wore off as Alli and Son added two more goals in as many minutes. You can not say no for one day. That being said it's his incredible goalscoring that has grabbed the headlines.

"It's hard to find words to describe Harry Kane".

At full-back, Rose (who was so impressive for the all-important first goal) played as well as he has since returning from injury while Serge Aurier, who kept his place ahead of Kieran Trippier, was energetic and used the ball well. "We're a hard team to stop and I said to them before the game to try and set me up and they did that, so I'll have to take them out for dinner".

Spurs are already out of the title race and Pochettino described this season as a "transition" on the eve of the game.

With question marks over the future of left back Danny Rose, amid reports from the Daily Mail that Manchester United could pursue a £50million deal for the England global, Spurs need to eye up a potential replacement - and their top target has been on their radar for some time.

Meanwhile the Saints now sit in 13th - if results go against them then they could potentially slip right down to the relegation zone, or just above it. Mauricio Pellegrino's side have now won just one of their past 11 Premier League games and are winless in their last seven. "He was by far the best player on the pitch and that was one of the best performances I have seen this season". Van Dijk pushed for a move to Liverpool last summer only to see it break down and he has now been linked to Manchester City. More than Burnley (34) and West Brom (32).

Kane nearly had his third only to volley wide from an excellent cross-field Rose pass and Southampton pulled one back when Serge Aurier made a mess of a headed clearance and Boufal drilled past Lloris at the near post. And the worry for defenders is he's just getting started.
