Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama amassed full minutes as a first-half Harry Kane hat-trick inspired Tottenham to an emphatic 4-0 victory over Stoke City in a English Premier League clash staged at White Hart Lane on Sunday 26 February.

The England international scored his fourth treble for the club and turned provider for Dele Alli at White Hart Lane to send Mauricio Pochettino's side into second in the table; ten points behind league leaders Chelsea.

Kane opened the scoring with his 100th goal at club level before making is 2-0 with a sublime half-volley with 32 minutes played. The 23-year-old's deflected free-kick secured his second hat-trick in as many appearances in domestic competition, and he set up Alli to make it 4-0 before the break to cap a ruthless performance.

On the same day, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a double as Manchester United emerged 3-2 winners over Southampton in a thrilling EFL Cup final held at the Wembley Grounds.

Southampton’s Manolo Gabbiadini's strike early on was wrongly ruled out for offside before Ibrahimovic struck with an impressive free-kick at the other end. Jesse Lingard got the second, finding the bottom-right corner after a neat team move to net on his third consecutive Wembley appearance for United, before Gabbiadini got a goal that did count in first-half stoppage time.

Gabbiadini made it five goals in three Saints matches with his second of the game - a magnificent finish early in the second half - but Ibrahimovic had the last word with his 26th goal of the season.
