Moura created a slice of history by becoming the first man to score a treble in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where the Brazilian celebrated on the pitch with his son after the game. "The goal difference can be decisive to achieve the top four at the end", Pochettino said.

Mauricio Pochettino has said it will be hard for Harry Kane to play for Tottenham again this season after the striker suffered a "significant lateral ligament injury" to his left ankle against Manchester City. His hat-trick was complete deep into stoppage time, substitute Heung-Min Son's pass inside the defender finding Lucas who once again dispatched an excellent finish, the ideal end to a flawless afternoon.

The lunchtime win sends Spurs back up to third and with three of their remaining six league games at their new stadium, Mauricio Pochettino's men will be confident of coming out on top of a thrilling four-way battle for Champions League qualification.

"Taking the past, the last few years, I don't think that we are favourites", said Pochettino in a press conference.

"I am so happy, the performance was very professional, I am happy for Lucas for his hat-trick". His hat-trick is going to help his confidence.

"I think the first interest now is to try and provide Harry the best condition and tools to recover as soon as possible and hope he can help us at the end of the season, and help England win the title they are going to fight for in the summer".

Kane, right, in the challenge with Manchester City's Fabian Delph that resulted in his latest ankle injury.

Kane is thought to have targeted a possible Champions League final on 1 June or England's Nations League semi-final against Holland on 6 June for his return to action. We have five weeks - If we are into the final of the Champions League, maybe he will play but we'll see.

"He is doing some training sessions [with a protective cast] and needs to be comfortable". He broke his hand in two parts. Davies fired wide, Lucas weaved his way past three defenders before firing straight at Hamer from 20 yards and Llorente glanced another header just wide - this time from a Davies cross - as we continued to dominate the game. "Harry Winks is not a big issue but not easy".

"We need to assess". If you remember the last season at the old White Hart Lane, we were unbeaten.
