Harry Kane comes off bench to score 20-minute hat-trick as Tottenham run riot in 5-1 victory over NS Mura; Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso also on target as Spurs end five-game winless run to move top of Europa Conference League Group G

Harry Kane said his hat-trick from the bench in Tottenham’s 5-1 Europa Conference League win over NS Mura came as a bonus.

The England captain struck the 13th treble of his Spurs career after coming on just before the hour-mark against the Slovenian outfit.

The hosts were winning 2-1 at the time after goals inside the first eight minutes from Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso and Kane’s cameo settled matters.

Having failed to find the back of the net so far in five Premier League outings and looking well below his best, his quickfire treble could prove a timely boost.

“Every striker wants to score goals. I probably wasn’t expecting to come on today but it’s nice to get the minutes,” he told BT Sport.

“Whenever you see the ball hit the back of the net it’s a good feeling. Hopefully we can take it into the weekend. It was nice to come off the bench and score a few goals.”

Although Spurs were in early command, Mura, who were only formed in 2012, got back into the game after Ziga Kous scored the goal of his life and Spurs were looking fragile against the lowest-ranked team in the competition.
