'I've not had many better weeks' - new dad Harry on his hat-trick
Sat 14 January 2017, 17:55|Tottenham Hotspur
Talk about a week you could only really dream about...
Harry Kane helped us beat Chelsea, watched in awe as he became a father for the first time and then returned to duty with a hat-trick as we put in one of our most complete performances in recent memory with a 4-0 win against West Brom on Saturday.
Does it get any better than that? “When you put it like that, it really doesn’t!” beamed Harry, with his fourth hat-trick ball tucked away.
“It’s been a whirlwind of a week, the birth of my daughter, that was incredible, an amazing experience, looking after her all week and then getting ready for this game and to score a hat-trick and win 4-0 in the way we did, I’ve not had many better weeks!

“It’s all been quite surreal really. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. The baby is there sleeping at home and I look at her amazed that she’s here. That was that part of it (the week) and then I’ve been focused on training, I’ve tried to make sure that I’m getting enough sleep at home and the missus (Kate) has been great, making sure I get enough sleep! What a great way to finish the week off.”
We were outstanding against West Brom, one of the most resolute, well-drilled teams in the Premier League.
It’s well-documented that our previous three encounters ended 1-1 but there was no stopping us this time around.
We dominated from the first whistle and just pinned West Brom in their half. Harry scored on 12 minutes, Christin Eriksen’s shot was deflected home for 2-0 by the break and Harry’s second and third goals saw the scoreline match our domination - 21-3 in shots, 72% possession.
“It was one of the best performances of the season, for sure, and one of the best since I’ve been in a Spurs shirt,” he added,
“West Brom are normally a very tough team to break down, they are compact and make it hard for you and to win 4-0 - and it could easily have been six or seven if it wasn’t for their keeper making great saves - was an amazing performance.”
