He has now scored five goals in two Champions League appearances this season, meaning that he is currently the top-scoring payer in the competition. Kane became the seventh English player to score a Champions League hat-trick after Andy Cole, Mike Newell, Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney, Alan Shearer and Danny Welbeck.
"Who better to assess Harry?" said Pochettino of Hoddle.
"A big challenge. I think they will be very motivated to play against us and have had the whole week to prepare for the game against Tottenham", he said.
"In every team you have a big goalscorer and for Tottenham that is Harry Kane".
"But Harry is one of the best and maybe better because he is younger".
Kane struck twice in four first-half minutes and Eriksen added a third after Kane's free-kick hit the post, one of two efforts against the woodwork in addition to his goals. We know his aptitude for scoring important goals.
"The last one was an unbelievable delivery from Tripps (Kieran Trippier) and I made the run late into the box and I was happy to see it go in".
Just this week, his manager Mauricio Pochettino has compared his to the current holder of the Ballon d'Or Cristiano Ronaldo. I can not joke about that because both are fantastic.
"For me, he is the flawless midfielder, who can play box-to-box and like a holding midfielder", he said. He's so clever, and we are so happy that he starts to feel better now because he provides to the team qualities that we don't have.
He is probably the closest player to the Denmark worldwide, named Spurs' supporters' player of the season a year ago, in the squad but Pochettino was reluctant to compare them, adding: "It's bad to compare two players".
