Hat-trick hero Harry Kane labelled Tottenham's 4-0 victory over West Brom their best display of the season.

Kane, who became a father for the first time last weekend, rounded off a brilliant week with a fine treble at White Hart Lane as the Baggies were battered, with the other goal coming from a Christian Eriksen strike deflected in by the unfortunate Gareth McAuley.

"We were outstanding today," the 23-year-old England striker said on Sky Sports 1. "I'd say that would probably be our best performance of the season. We could've scored a lot more if it wasn't for Ben (Foster) in goal - he made some unbelievable saves.

"We wanted to keep our streak going, and we've done that."

Kane was told after the game he had become the Spurs player to reach 60 Premier League goals the quickest.

"That's fantastic," he said. "I don't look at records too much - I just try to go out there and play and score for my team, win for my team. It's a fantastic day all round."

The new father added: "It's amazing. The week has been a bit of a whirlwind, obviously having a little daughter - just amazing, the whole week, and to finish it off like this is the best way possible."
