Paul Merson states his prediction for Tottenham v Southampton

If Kane can score when Spurs host Southampton at Wembley in Wednesday's early game, the record will be his alone - and Shearer is backing him to pull it off.

Pochettino said that Kane belonged in the most illustrious of company and, when making comparisons, the Tottenham Hotspur manager wondered whether there was a more lethal number 9. "It was hard not to think about the records today and I'm very proud of them", he said.

Kane said it had been a "fantastic" year.

Any glimpse of optimism from Southampton were all but instantaneously extinguished as Kane completed his second hat-trick in three days, Alli released the striker through on goal with Forster quick off his line and just coolly lofted over his compatriot to complete his eighth trio of the calender year.

That meant he had not only become the highest scorer in a calendar year in Premier League history but also surpassed the likes of Lionel Messi, Edinson Cavani, Roberto Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo as the top scorer among Europe's top five leagues with 56 goals in 52 appearances all competitions for club and country over the past 12 months.

The England star's treble against Burnley on December 23 moved him level on 36 with Alan Shearer and he never looked as though he was going to struggle with the expectation, beating the record, which had lasted for 22 years, in the 22nd minute as part of an enormous performance.

"I'll keep working harder, it's about finding little percents to get better and doing things on the training ground to make you better".

"I've improved physically - recovery for games, getting ready for each game, eating right and ice baths", added Kane. I feel sharp and at my best.

"Southampton have gone - no Charlie Austin, no Virgil van Dijk, so I can not see anything other than a Tottenham win". Van Dijk, who was left out of the squad for the third game running, was sorely missed and surely Spurs would not have found it so easy if the Manchester City and Chelsea target had been marshalling the defence instead of Wesley Hoedt and Maya Yoshida.

"We have to wait until January", Pellegrino said. Virgil is part of our club and he's an important player for us but we'll see what happens.

I think Southampton will do their best to hold off Tottenham for the majority of the 90 but in the end the attacking prowess of the home side will prevail.

"I can not control the whispers and the news from outside". The board made a decision to try to keep our best player at the club.
