Harry Kane’s second hat-trick in just over five weeks secured a 3-0 win at Fulham and put us into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.
The striker shook off a slight knock to his knee sustained in the Europa League defeat at Gent on Thursday night to lead the line and get us back to winning ways, sending the Championship side crashing out of the competition in the process.
It could have been more, too, as a host of chances came our way in the first half but Kane, wearing the captain’s armband, was on point with one goal before the break and two after it to send us into the sixth round of the competition for the first time since 2012.
Centre-back Jan Vertonghen also marked his return from a five-week injury lay-off – ironically, the 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on January 14 in which he last saw action also saw Kane grab a hat-trick – to help the team keep clean sheet.
The draw for the next round takes place this evening at around 6.30pm.
