The Wait is Over for Nahki Wells

Nahki Wells came on for his Premier League debut in the84th minute with Burnley down 3 – 0 to Tottenham, replacing Scott Arfield.

Harry Kane scored three times as Tottenham defeated Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor to leapfrog their opponents in the Premier League table.

Spurs surprisingly came into the match trailing sixth-place Burnley, but they soon had the upper hand in the match as Kane dispatched a penalty inside of 10 minutes after Kevin Long tripped Dele Alli in the area.

And Kane nearly doubled the lead just past the quarter-hour mark when he pounced on a loose ball in the six-yard box but shot just wide of goal with Burnley keeper Nick Pope off his line.

Pope then kept the deficit at one goal with a pair of saves on Moussa Sissoko, who should have double Spurs lead after Alli played him in on goal on a swift counter-attack.

Chris Wood limped off in the 35th minute and was replaced by Ashley Barnes after a collision with Hugo Lloris while sliding in on goal and just out of reach of a low cross into the penalty area.

Spurs went into the dressing room with a 1-0 lead at the intermission.

Christian Eriksen was involved in a bright start to the second half for Spurs, crossing to the near post where Kane poked just wide of goal before volleying right at Pope after Son Heung-Min played him in on goal.

Son then had an impossible miss minutes later, firing way over the crossbar after Serge Aurier had squared the ball to him with no one to beat but Pope from the center of the box.

Kane then bagged his second of the night to further dent Burnley's chances of a fightback, slotting past Pope after Sissoko had played him in behind the hosts' defense with an incisive through ball.

And the Spurs striker made it 3-0 minutes later with a low line drive to beat a helpless Pope after a clever short pass from Alli freed up his England international teammate in the area.

The strike took Kane's total to 36 in 2017, equaling Alan Shearer's record for Premier League goals in a calendar year, which he set with Blackburn in 1995.
