Harry Kane scores three as Tottenham thrash Southampton 5-2 in London

Kane is still improving and has yet to reach his peak performance as a player says Pochettino

Harry Kane smashed Alan Shearer's Premier League record for goals scored in a calendar year by hitting a hat-trick in Tottenham's 5-2 mauling of Southampton.

What is black and white to Dyche is that Kane deserved the plaudits after the England worldwide helped Spurs leapfrog Burnley into fifth as they chase a top-four finish and a place in the Champions League.

"For me, he's world class", Pochettino said. If you achieve something and you say, 'I need to run 10 metres but I will run only nine, ' you will cheat yourself, and that is a massive problem.

"It does not surprise us because every day we see how he works, how determined he is and how professional he is", he said. Dusan Tadic added a late consolation late on but this Boxing Day bonanza was all about one man again.

The England forward is level with Bayern Munich's Polish forward Robert Lewandowski, Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Paris St Germain's Edinson Cavani.Unlike any of his rivals for the record, however, Kane still has a game left to play this year - a home game against Southampton on December 26. "You can not afford not to work every day".

Shearer praised the man who now fills his old role as England's main striker at worldwide level by tweeting: "You've had a magnificent 2017, Harry Kane".

"It is always about improving every year".

Kane is bidding to become just the third Premier League player to complete a Golden Boot hat-trick, following in the footsteps of Shearer (1994-97) and Thierry Henry (2003-06).

All of the talk ahead of the clash was surrounding Kane and being on the cusp of history with the striker just goal behind Alan Shearer for the most Premier League goals in a calender year, it started well for Spurs as Eriksen was inches away from giving his side the lead only denied by the offside flag but the inevitable goal from Kane arrived 22 minutes in.

Tottenham Hotspur are rarely busy in the January transfer windows under Mauricio Pochettino, but they could look for a new addition this time around. "I'm very proud of it. Messi and Ronaldo have dominated football for so long, they're two of the world's greatest players ever", Kane told Sky Sports.

"I'll keep working harder".

"We are so ambitious, but I'm happy we finished the year in a good way. 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".
