Kane scores 3, Tottenham beats Apoel 3-0 in Champions League

They continued their strong start to the group stage with a 3-0 victory.

Harry Kane scored a hat-trick in Tottenham's 3-0 win against Apoel Nicosia on matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. It's now nine goals in his last five games in all competitions for the England striker.

The win saw Tottenham keep pace with Real Madrid, who beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1, at the summit of Group H. Spurs and Real have an identical record, while Tottenham's next two European showdowns are against Zinedine Zidane's outfit.

But I think we will be very motivated to play against the best team in the world.

Tottenham walked out of the London Stadium with all three points after a tense finish to the game.

"Now my wife is so jealous - and his wife too", Pochettino said. Therefore, we do not expect a lot of goals scored. He is on another level.

They are killers. Harry has this special skill. We created the chances but we have to be more clinical, that is 100 per cent sure. It's true we will miss him but we need to move on, find a way to play and perform and try to win. In addition, his league form has helped the Spurs to decent form in the Premier League, having been unbeaten in their last four games, winning twice.

Ahead of Manchester City's Group F match against Shakhtar Donetsk, Guardiola's is sweating over the fitness of Benjamin Mendy, the City left-back signed from Monaco in the summer who has eased into the Premier League. It also marks his ninth hat-trick for Spurs since becoming a first-team player in 2013 - six of those have come in 2017 alone. Yannick Carrasco and Antoine Griezmann scored the goals at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday. Aboubaker was on hand to doubled his side's lead after 70 minutes and Miguel Layun sealed the points with a goal of his own on the 90th minute.

Historically, Tottenham would see themselves slip up in games like this in Europe, but recent signs have told us that they mean business this Champions League campaign and will be a force to be reckoned with.
