Good evening

Right, that's it from me this evening. Scroll down to soak it all in if you're just arriving, and read Gary Rose's match report.

You can also head over here to follow Leicester v Manchester United - which is about 15 minutes in.

Until the next time!

'We know where we are'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Burnley

Burnley manager Sean Dyche, speaking to BBC Sport: "They were the better side. They were top class, even though they have been a bit up and down this year, they can always hurt you in different ways. They pressed us well, defended from the front and yes they got a big start with the penalty obviously. We ground back into it by half time, they scored a second, and then it was tough for us."

On Dele Alli's yellow card challenge and the penalty: "You see them go. He is out of control and you see red cards for that. For the penalty he is going down after the contact, which is minor contact at best, so that's a really tough one too. The irony is that I thought the one that was a penalty was when Ashley Barnes went down at the end. Serge Aurier is the wrong side, you can't put your elbow in someone's face. Then for Sam Vokes' header, I think that is a clean header, I would be looking at the keeper there. These are things that might have given us a smidgen of a chance, but they were the better side today.

"We have to look at the bigger picture. You feel these results as a manager because you want to compete against everyone. We are mature and moving forward and we know where we are at. There is a lot of tough work coming up."

'We can fight for the top four'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to BT Sport:

"First of all I have to congratulate Harry - it's the same record as Alan Shearer. Then the team - they were amazing. We needed this type of victory and we got the three points.

"It's difficult to find words to describe Harry Kane. Even during my time at Spurs I'm surprised by him. The hat-trick is nice for him but we could have scored more than three. I'm worried when you don't create chances though.

"We were really solid - it was a solid performance. We recovered our spirit in the way we played in the last two of three seasons.

On the first-half penalty?

"The penalty was a penalty. The crowd started to focus on Dele Alli [after he won the penalty]. He has a great personality and character and you can't intimidate him.

"We are now in a position we can fight for the top four which is important after the loss to Manchester City."

'The Dele Alli tackle was an orange card'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Burnley

Burnley manager Sean Dyche speaking BT Sport: "The best side won on the day. They're a top class side - they did the basics. They showed us respect by showing they would have to earn the win.

The yellow card for Dele Alli - whether it could have been a red?

"It was a tough one - Dele Alli is out of control - he was never going to get the ball. Number of years ago that was just a big challenge, but it's a tough one today - an orange card.

"The penalty was a tough one but generally they get given. I think it was a penalty after Barnes was fouled.

"The one person I've not mentioned is Harry Kane - he's a fantastic player. He must be up there with one of the best strikers in the world.

"You lick your wounds today. They turned up and we didn't quite. Overall, I know where the club is at. We have to be really happy where the club is at."

A quick reminder that the final Premier League game of the day - Leicester v Manchester United is already up and under way. You can join Shamoon Hafez for that one over here.

'This shows everyone we are there'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was so important to us to perform how we did, to recover our feeling and level. It was massive for us. The team today fought, it was a massive battle, Burnley are doing a fantastic season, for me it is an amazing performance.

"The feeling was really good. We are in a good position now, we are fighting for the top four, this shows everyone we are there, now we need to be solid and consistent, today is a good platform to go up."

On Harry Kane: "He is amazing, a fantastic player, he needs one more to be above Alan, we will see the next game. But it is fantastic for him, he could have scored more than three today because the chances were there. I was a little bit frustrated we have not scored more - there was a massive chance for Son, for Sissoko, I feel sorry for them, but they need to keep going and the next games they are going to score, no problem."

Christmas present for Tottenham

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Turf Moor

It might only be on goal difference and it might 'only' be a scrap for fourth spot at present but Tottenham's victory means they will be above Arsenal on Christmas Day for the first time since 2011.

A reason to celebrate in one part of north London at any rate.

In Europe's biggest five footballing scenes (France, Spain, Italy, Germany and England), only two players have scored more than Harry Kane in 2017 in all competitions.

Kane has 46, but Paris St-Germain striker Edinson Cavani and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi have 50.

So if he scores five at home to Southampton...

'I was aware of Shearer's record'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham's hat-trick hero Harry Kane speaking to BT Sport: "It's a nice present that's for sure. Tough game, we knew it'd be tough - it was 3-0 but we could have had more.

"I am aware I've equalled Alan Shearer's record [of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year]. Just going into this game I thought I can get a couple and then there's Southampton to play.

"You always want to finish a game off away from home. We didn't want to give them an incentive.

"I thought Dele Alli played great today. The challenge in the first half they both went for it and I thought the penalty was a penalty.

"It was a difficult place to come. Let's see what happens on Boxing Day."

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Here's another killer stat on how difficult teams have found it to score at Turf Moore of late.

Today, Burnley conceded as many goals as they had in their first nine Premier League games at home this season.

Makes Harry Kane's destructive display all the more impressive.

Dan, Derbyshire: The plaudits will rightly be for Kane tonight, but don't forget the important role Davinson Sanchez played today. He was excellent and has been missed these last three games. Once Alderweireld and Wanyama are back, Spurs should be right on it.

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

There was a lot of chat about Burnley's defence and goalkeeper before this game - and rightly so, they'd only conceded 16 goals in 18 matches before today.

It's testimony to Spurs' performance that they are the first away team to score three goals in a league game at Turf Moor in almost three years - since Crystal Palace won 3-2 in January 2015.

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

No matter what Harry Kane gets for Christmas there will be only one thing on his mind between now and his first turkey sandwich of 2017.

Three goals today has moved him level with Alan Shearer's record of 36 Premier League goals in one calendar year.

Shearer did it with Blackburn in 1995.

Kane has 90 minutes left to do better. Spurs play at home to Southampton on Boxing Day.

Michael Ball: And they say Spurs can't play well away at the top six...

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Steven Defour knocks it up to Ashley Barnes, he's crowded out and a cross comes in, Hugo Lloris is unconvincing with his scruffy punched clearance.

Just one minute to play...

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

The game is up but Sean Dyche is still down there barking orders at his players.

Spurs are moving up to fifth for Christmas Day - one point short of the top four.

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Burnley are undone again as they continue to press hard for possession, always one change of pace too slow to keep up with Spurs.

Christian Eriksen looks to slide Harry Kane through to the left of goal, but the pass is too heavy.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

A change apiece.

Dele Alli milks the boos/appluads as he makes way for Fernando Llorente.

For Burnley, Nahki Wells takes Scott Arfield's place in attack.

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

There could be more. Chrisitan Eriksen plays a delicious through ball up to Erik Lamela, but it's just cut out by the covering left-back Charlie Taylor.

The corner is cleared and we've got about five minutes until Harry Kane will officially stop scoring for another weekend.

One's not enough

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Turf Moor

Harry Kane has scored in 14 matches for club and country this season.

Amazingly, in nine of them he has scored more than once.

If Liverpool's Mohamed Salah thought he would easily win the Golden Boot this year, he is mistaken.

'Could have been seven or eight'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

BBC Radio London Sport

Former Fulham player Rob Scott: "Spurs have eventually turned this game into a little bit of a stroll.

"It could have been seven or eight really!"

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Eric Dier makes way for Erik Lamela to come on for the last seven minutes.

This has been impressive work from Spurs - and one man in particular. You know who.

PENALTY APPEAL

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

They're not giving up, Burnley. They are surely beaten but Steven Defour bursts forward to smash wide now, moments after Ashley Barnes went down claiming for a penalty under pressure from Serge Aurier's aerial challenge. Would have been harsh I reckon, but Sean Dyche quite clearly disagrees.

'Take your hat off for Kane'

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

BBC Radio London Sport

Former Fulham player Rob Scott: "Whether you are a Burnley fan or of any team, you have to take your hat off for this guy.

"He works hard, he gets into positions and that's it - record equaled. I wouldn't be surprised if he is taken off very shortly!

"He's outstanding. He has got a bit of everything and he works his socks off."

DISALLOWED GOAL

Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Sam Vokes knocks the ball into the net on his head but the challenge on Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris was too strong says the ref - he rules it out.

GOAL - Burnley 0-3 Tottenham

Harry Kane

Just superb. That is the hat-trick - and he's equalled the record!

Harry Kane is in inspired form. He collects Dele Alli's sharp lay-off on the edge of the box, makes nothing at all of shaping past his marker.

On his left foot, he lines it up, shoots low and hard, right into the bottom corner.

That is 36 Premier League goals in 2017 - level with Alan Shearer's tally of 1995.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Son Heung-min, who blazed so wildly over the bar shortly before Harry Kane added Spurs' second, is off for a think on the bench as Mousa Dembele takes his place.

Hugo Lloris does well to fence away a Burnley cross that hung long in the sky.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Dele Alli collects and turns. He bursts towards the box but stumbles just as he reaches the penalty area edge. Looks like he really did lose his balance but the irony is not lost on the home fans at Turf Moor...

'You can't replace Harry Kane'

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

BBC Radio London Sport

Former Fulham player Rob Scott: "You can't replace Harry Kane like-for-like. The big worry for Tottenham is whether he gets injured or if he does leave.

"I'm sure Mauricio Pochettino is doing his homework behind the scenes to list a few names who could be potential replacements."

CHANCE!

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Sam Vokes knocks a through ball into his stride but Hugo Lloris is sharply off his line to slide and feet and collect.

Just 15 minutes left for Burnley to somehow find a way back in.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Kane's second goal here means he is now Tottenham's outright second top scorer in the Premier League era with 92 goals - behind only Teddy Sheringham's 97.

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

So Harry Kane has 35 goals in 2017. The most scored by any Premier League player in one calendar year is 36, by Alan Shearer in 1995.

A hat-trick would be one way to do it...

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Sean Dyche reacts. Striker Sam Vokes is thrown on - with midfielder Jeff Hendrick making way.

'That's what Spurs were looking for'

Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

BBC Radio London Sport

Former Fulham player Rob Scott: "It was again, a mistake from Burnley, and it came straight between the two centre-halves.

"Harry Kane slipped it lovely underneath. It was a good finish and that should close out the game for Spurs.

"That is what they have been looking for. If Burnley get back into this now, I will be very surprised."

GOAL - Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Harry Kane

Heartbreak for Burnley. It's such a simple goal that surely kills off any hopes of a home comeback.

Harry Kane is played through on goal by Moussa Sissoko's straight pass beyond the Burnley backline.

He has time, he picks his spot and slides the ball home safely beyond Nick Pope. The record is within touching distance...

CHANCE!

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

What a brave headed clearance by Kevin Long.

Harry Kane's ball to the back post put everything in Dele Alli's favour, but the Burnley centre-back rose strongly - and was fouled as he nodded the ball to safety under pressure.

'Tottenham not as dominant'

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

BBC Radio London Sport

Former Fulham player Rob Scott: "I feel like Burnley are gradually getting their way back into this.

"Tottenham are not as dominant as they were in the first half and Burnley will grind their way into the game."

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

Huge shouts from the Burnley fans as another ball into Ashley Barnes sees the home striker tumble. They want a free-kick or a penalty - it was on the edge of the box - but the flag is up for offside.

Spurs can't get out here.

Burnley 0-1 Tottenham

Well covered by Moussa Sissoko - he sticks out a lanky boot to tip Johann Berg Gudmundsson out of possession.

But this is a good spell for the home side now and Jeff Hendrick gets a chance to cross - Davinson Sanchez rather unconvincingly diverts clear enough to survive.

It comes across again - but Ashley Barnes is holding Sergie Aurier and it's a Spurs free-kick.
