Robbie Keane scored four times as Tottenham thrashed Burnley 5-0 at White Hart Lane to offer another reminder why Harry Redknapp refuses to drop him for Peter Crouch.

Keane has started every Barclays Premier League game this season and, despite Crouch's midweek treble at Preston, he was given the nod again.

The Republic of Ireland striker scored from the penalty spot before splitting Burnley's defence in the build up to Jermaine Jenas' second.

Two cool finishes in the second half meant the 29-year-old was taking the ball home with him, before his fourth squeezed through the legs of goalkeeper Brian Jensen.
