    ROBBIE KEANE upped the ante in the Spurs strike war by finding the net FOUR times.

    Forward rival Peter Crouch thought he'd forced his way into the side after hitting a cup hat-trick during the week.
    But the lofty striker watched on from the bench as Keane grabbed the spotlight with an incredible display of scoring.


    Burnley had done their homework on Carlo Cudicini, peppering the shaky Spurs stopper with early high balls.
    His opposite number Brian Jensen looked far sturdier — thumping away an early Jermaine Jenas thunderbolt.
    But there was little the Beast could do about Spurs' opener.
    After 18 minutes, hitman Jermain Defoe screamed past Andrey Bikey, who desperately hacked down the Spurs striker.
    Ref Mike Dean pointed to the spot — and Keane stepped up to fire past the Dane.
    That marked the Irishman's 50th goal at White Hart Lane.
    Burnley were fuming after Dean ruled out Steven Fletcher's goal for offside.
    And the visitors' sense of injustice was magnified when Jenas doubled the lead minutes later.
    Nico Kranjcar's shot was blocked by Bikey, but Jenas followed up and blasted past Jensen from 25 yards out.
    After the break, Robbie Blake banged forward a volley that Cudicini nervily clawed out. It was a carbon copy of Blake's winner against Manchester United earlier this term.
    Defoe had a shot saved by Jensen in the 54th minute after Keane had split the Claret's back-line.
    And skipper Keane was back in action on the hour to put the game beyond Burnley. He sealed his hat-trick in the 77th-minute — and bundled home his fourth in the game's dying stages.
