Spurs striker scores 39th PL goal of calendar year with hat-trick in 5-2 victory over Saints at Wembley

Harry Kane set a calendar year goal record with his second hat-trick in a row as Tottenham Hotspur eased past Southampton 5-2 at Wembley.

Two Kane strikes from close range gave Spurs a 2-0 first-half lead.

Dele Alli put Spurs 3-0 up on 49 minutes with a curling shot. Two minutes later it was 4-0 when Son Heung-min fired in on the break.

Sofiane Boufal grabbed a goal back before Kane sealed his hat-trick with his 18th strike of the season.

Dusan Tadic came on to score a second for Southampton, who are 14th. Spurs lie in fifth position.
