Harry Kane overcame Shearer and Messi to “Boxing Day”
Tottenham broke with Southampton 5-2 at Wembley in the first round of the Boxing Dice round in the Premier League. All over was Harry Kain (22 ‘, 36, 67’) who improved Alan Shearer’s record for most Premier League goals. The English national already has 39 hits for 2017, while his prominent predecessor scored 36 in 1995. In addition, Kane overcame Lionel Messi for a total of goals scored for the club and national team in 2017. Dele Ali (49 ‘) and Son Hyun-Min (51’) made Tottenham victory even more convincing. Sophie Buffal (64 ‘) and Dusan Tadic (51’) tried to shame Southampton.
Danny Rose and Moussa Dembele started for the hosts at the expense of Ben Davis and Musa Sisoko. Eric Dyer was able to recover in time from the injury suffered by Burnley and was also the champion. Mauriceio Pellegrino made four changes in his composition. Oriel Romeu, Sophie Boufalle, Pierre-Emil Hoyberg and Shane Long started. Virginia Van Dyke was not the saints again for today’s fight.
In the fifth minute the hosts were close to the goal after Eriksen centered on the ground, and Harry Kane knocked on the nearby beam, but the ball passed from the outside of the side pillar. Minutes later Forster fired Eriksen out of the boundary of the penalty area, and seconds later the ball was in the door of the guests, but the shot was properly canceled because of Eriksen ambush.
In the 22nd minute, Harry Kane was dropped by Southhampton’s defenseman, and from a small penalty box Erickson’s head scored a 1-0 draw and a record for the striker who made his 37th Premier League goal in 2017. Legendary Alan Shearer, whose record improved Cain, immediately congratulated Tottenham’s striker on social networks. “The Saints” could catch up in their first attack after Kane’s fall. Buffalle entered the penalty area, but Loris slapped his shot. Rose played his head and crossed the goal but the ball ricocheted in the crossbar. Loris then captured the goal.
In the 39th minute, Kane realized his 38th goal for the year. Ali put a very good sound on the left flank. The latter centers on the ground. Kane was again uncovered and knocked down – 2: 0. With that goal, Tottenham’s scorer passed Lionel Messi on a total number of goals scored for the club and national team in 2017. Kane at this point scored his 55th goal, while the Barcelona star remained 54.
Three minutes before the break, Song demanded a penalty after a fight with Stevens who failed to play the ball. The Referee rightly found that there was no violation.
At the very beginning of the second part, Long slipped behind the defense, but at the time of the strike he slipped and failed to make Loris harder. Shortly thereafter, Lemina’s shot hit the beam. After these two positions, of which the guests did not take advantage, Tottenham hit the intrigue with two quick goals. First, in the 49th minute, Dele Ali made the lead of the “spurs” classical with a very technical blow to land on the border of the penalty area. Two minutes later, Dele Ali received the ball after a mistake of the “saints,” advanced, and found Son, who ended up cold-heartedly in a corner.
In 58th, Harry Kane stayed in inches from a hat-trick after he missed Rose’s centering air, but the ball flashed away from the far beam.
In the 64th minute, Sofian Bufal reduced his shot to a nearby beam and a poor intervention by Hugo Loris. Three minutes later, Kane formed his hat-trick after receiving from Ali and gladly knocked the ball for 5: 1 – 39 goals for the year and eighth hattrick (six of which are in the Premier League).
In the 82nd minute Dusan Tadic made a second goal for Southampton. Loris boxed one ball to the Serb who did not make a mistake.
Tottenham came out in fourth place before the other rounds played. Spurs have 37 points. Southampton is 13th with 19 points.
