Harry Kane hits hat-trick as Tottenham power past West Brom

Tottenham Hotspur's head coach Mauricio Pochettino gestures on the touchline during the English FA Cup third round football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa at White Hart Lane in London

Tottenham host West Brom at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Saturday January 14, kicking off at 1230 GMT live on Sky Sports 1 HD.

Foster's excellence, particularly at Kane's expense, was responsible for preventing considerably heavier damage before Spurs' top scorer struck twice in quick succession to claim the matchball after becoming a father for the first time last weekend.

Tottenham goal machine Harry Kane celebrated the birth of his first child last week with his third top-flight hat-trick.

After dominating West Brom, Pochettino believes his side are now in a "good position for big things". At that point the 23-year-old seemed to take on board the maxim "if at first you don't succeed then try and try again" - and seven minutes later he had his reward. "That liberty [the attacking players] have within the plan and structure means they can open up a team - and they did that against West Brom". The injury looked bad on replay - he rolled his ankle near the touch line - and Jan could be set for an extended spell on the sidelines. "I think it was a good way to finish the week for him", Pochettino said.

The origins of Tottenham's opening goal can be traced back to some excellent work from Christian Eriksen, who blocked a free-kick inside his own half and immediately charged the ball down to win his team a throw-in at the other end of the field.

Kane has now scored 62 Premier League goal mark in just 99 games, and 58 of those 62 goals have come from efforts from inside the penalty area.

"Harry Kane was exceptional and could've had two hat-tricks but he was magnificent in front of goal".

And just like that, Kane completed his hat trick after Dele chipped in a ball that met Kane's foot in the 81st minute.

"He is disappointed and in a very hard period but we will push him to recover quickly to try to help him". Today we did not concede a goal.

The side beat Aston Villa last week, securing a fourth-round FA cup tie with Wycombe Wanderers, but Pochettino admitted West Brom - which has forced 1-1 draws in its past three games - offers a stern test. Alongside Alli, the pair have now combined to score Tottenham's last 10 Premier League goals. But they swept Tony Pulis' men aside on Saturday and Redknapp is in no doubt about the strides the team have made since that tough-to-take finale to last season.
