Match No. 1027 - Friday, 12th November 2021, 7:45pm

  • Assist: Reece James. "James curls a gorgeous free kick into the mixer. Maguire times his run from deep, meeting the dropping ball six yards out, and guides his header across Strakosha and into the right-hand side of the net." Harry Maguire6th of 7 goals. Header from 7 yards., 9' 8:29
  • Assist: Jordan Henderson. "James bursts his way down the inside-right channel before losing the ball. Henderson snatches it, one-twos with Foden, reaches the byline, and stands one up for Kane, who can’t miss from six yards, planting his header into the bottom left." Harry Kane42nd of 48 goals. Header from 3 yards., 18' 17:13
  • Assist: Harry Kane. "Henderson picks up the ball in a central position and dribbles towards the box. He one-twos with Kane to his right, takes a touch to his left, then swivels and steers a delicate dink across Strakosha and into the bottom right." Jordan Henderson2nd of 2 goals. Left-footed from 10 yards., 28' 27:25
  • Assist: Raheem Sterling. "Sterling dribbles down the middle, then slips Kane into the box down the left. Kane, played onside by a way-too-deep Veseli, drops a shoulder to get past the lumbering Dermaku and smashes home from a tight-ish angle." Harry Kane43rd of 48 goals. Left-footed from 10 yards., 33' 32:44
  • Assist: Phil Foden. "The corner’s hit deep. Kane, at the far post, powers a bicycle kick home from close range. Right peg, so that’s a perfect hat-trick. It took a deflection off Dermaku and over Strakosha, but there’s a fair chance it would have whistled home anyway." Harry Kane44th of 48 goals. Right-footed from 6 yards., 45' +145:58
