EPL Sunday: Harry Kane Scores Hat Trick As Tottenham Beat Stoke City 4-0 To Go Second

Harry Kane scored his third hat-trick in nine games as Tottenham moved up to the second in the English Premier League with a dominant 4-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday afternoon.
Kane opened the scoring on 14 minutes, shooting low across goal after Ryan Shawcross' attempted clearance landed at his feet.

On 32 minutes Kane doubled Spurs' advantage with a well-taken volley from Christian Eriksen's corner.

And five minutes later he claimed his third from a long-range free kick courtesy of a big deflection that wrong-footed Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Dele Alli added a fourth from close range in first-half stoppage time, converting a Kane pass after the striker had outrun Bruno Martins Indi on the right-wing. 
 After the interval, Grant made a fine save to deny Kane his fourth, while centre-back Toby Alderweireld limping off injured was the only sour note for Spur.

The win moves Spurs who went out of Europa League to Gent on Thursday night, back into second, 10 points back of leaders Chelsea and a point ahead of idle Manchester City. Stoke is 10th with 32 points.
