The ‘Boxing Day’, the traditional date of the Premier League after Christmas, brought many goals and emotions in a day marked by the three goals with which Harry Kane overcame Lionel Messi as top scorer in the major European leagues, with 56 goals against 54 of the Argentine. The attacker of the English team was the great figure in the 5-2 with which Tottenham, led by Mauricio Pochettino, crushed Southampton.

“Being compared to these players is amazing, a hat-trick is a good way to end the year,” said Kane, who had also scored three goals last Saturday against Burnley.

Manchester United again disappointed with a discreet 2-2 draw at Old Trafford against the modest Burnley, in a game that the ‘Reds’ lost from the beginning after a mistake by Marcos Rojo (made the previous foul at 0-1). The team led by Jose Mourinho not only lost the chance to reduce to 10 points his difference with Manchester City, but allowed Chelsea to approach a unit for the victory of the “blues” by 2-0 against Brighton. City, who will play on Wednesday, can extend their advantage to 15 points in front of the Premier.

United completed a lousy first half and paid it with two goals before the break. Ashley Barnes and Steven Defour overtook Burnley, who let slip the victory in the second half, with so many from Jesse Lingard.

In addition, West Ham and Bournemouth tied 3-3 in an emotional encounter. The ‘Hammers’ scored 3-2 at the 43rd minute of the second half through Arnautovic, but the home side equalized the 93 with a goal by Callum Wilson. With the score 2-1 for Bournemouth, Arnautovic took advantage of a tremendous ‘blooper’ goalkeeper Begovic.

The date will continue this Wednesday, when Manchester City visits Newcastle and will close on Thursday when Crystal Palace hosts Arsenal.
