Harry Kane's scoring record could be one of many

Heung-Min Son of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates with team mates as he scores their third goal during the Premier League match between Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur at St Mary's

Tottenham striker Harry Kane broke a Premier League record with a hat-trick in Tuesday's Tottenham Hotspur's 5-2 win over Southampton.

England forward Kane, 24, also set a Premier League record by scoring six hat-tricks in a calendar year as he capped another ruthless display in front of goal to complete his treble in the 67th minute, his second in as many games.

The England worldwide, who has made history in just 36 appearances compared to Shearer's 42 for Blackburn in 1995, put Spurs into a two-goal half-time lead with a close-range header and a simple tap-in before completing his second successive hat-trick with a dinked finish over Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster for his side's fifth.

Pochettino said Kane's tally was just reward for the effort he has put into his game."During my three and a half years with Tottenham, he always surprises me -- not only with goals but his contribution, with his attitude, professional ethic, how he works across the pitch, he is a massive example for everyone". "Just going into this game, I thought I can get a couple and then there's Southampton to play. I think it was good to finish this way here in Wembley".

Tottenham Hostpur star striker Harry Kane has set a Premier League record after getting on the score-sheet against Southampton on Boxing Day. We have such a busy schedule but I feel sharp and I feel at my best.

"It's tactical reasons. The manager decides which is the best for every single game; we win, we draw, we lost with and without Virgil and in this squad right now I have a lot of players who can play".

"I'll have to take [my teammates] out for dinner to thank them!"

"Messi and Ronaldo have dominated football for so long and are two of the best players ever".

Earlier this year Kane became only the fifth individual since the competition's inception in 1992 to register back-to-back hat-tricks alongside Les Ferdinand, Ian Wright, Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney.

"And we are all so, so, so, so happy because it's an awesome thing to celebrate".

Though the contest had been over for quite some time the scoring was yet to relinquish as Southampton had the final say, it was once again poor from Lloris as he made a hash of the corner by palming into Tadić who did well to lob it over Kane looking to block on the line but it would little to ruin a special afternoon for England's golden boy. "But it is fantastic for him", said Pochettino.
