Harry Kane has done it again.
The Spurs striker followed up his two goals against West Ham at the weekend with a perfect hat-trick against APOEL in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
A left-foot shot in the first half was followed by a right-foot strike and a header as Kane took his Champions League total to five goals in two games.
The treble was Kane’s sixth of 2017 and meant that the Spurs striker has hit 11 goals in September after his traditional goalless August.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino paid tribute to Kane after the match.
“It was a tough game. It was a difficult game, they (APOEL) were very motivated,” Pochettino said.
“I think it’s important today to get the three points. It was a must-win game and it’s so important.
“Today there were some good performances from players who have not been playing regularly.
“Of course, the hat-trick for Harry was a fantastic performance. Today was a difficult night so it was important to win.”
Kane’s latest match-winning performance also ignited a flood of tweets on social media.
The perfect hat-trick from @HKane! ?

The answer is Steven Gerrard.

Genuinely starting to feel like Harry Kane is God paying us back for so many years of being Spurs fans

Maybe those who compared him to Lionel Messi and Ronaldo were not too far off the mark after all!!
