Kane Bags Hat Trick As Tottenham Maul West Brom 4-0

16 January 2017

Spurs faded in the final weeks last season, finishing third on the final day of the campaign after pushing eventual champions Leicester close for much of the second half of the season.

Kane will be expecting to feature for Tottenham when the Lilywhites return to Premier League action with a tough test against Manchester City at The Etihad next Saturday.

Kane scored his 11th Premier League goal of the season in the 12th minute and Gareth McAuley diverted a shot from Christian Eriksen beyond his goalkeeper Ben Foster before the half hour in what was a torrid opening half for Albion.

Tony Pulis claimed Tottenham underlined their status as one of the Premier League's elite teams in a 4-0 win over his West Brom side but feels fixture commitments in Europe could hinder a Spurs title bid.

Jonny Evans remains out for West Brom as he continues to battle a calf problem. That is probably as high up in the league table as they will ever be this season with the top six teams stealing away from the rest. "We're in the same league as Spurs, but we're not, if you see what I mean".

"I don't believe that he will change".

U.S. to lift 20-year trade embargo against Sudan
Sudan welcomed the U.S. decision, saying it was a "positive and important" development in relations with Washington. However, he has extended sanctions against Russia, Iran, Cuba, Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

He said: "When you come here you have to be 100 per cent on it, physically and mentally and we weren't".

Jan VertonghenVertonghen rolled his ankle after slipping off the pitch and had to be immediately taken to the treatment room on 64 minutes.

Tottenham have laid down a marker in the title race with this performance, which moved them above Liverpool into second in the standings, four points behind Chelsea.

Things nearly got even worse very quickly for a West Brom side falling apart, Alli having a goal ruled out for offside after Eriksen slipped him through. He found the marauding Rose, who set up Eriksen to have his shot deflected first off Jonas Olsson, then McAuley and past the helpless Foster.

The fourth was a little harder for Kane, capping a fantastic Tottenham move by volleying the ball past Foster, albeit with a patchy connection, after a delightful dink over the top of the defence by partner in crime Alli.
