Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov scored four goals for Tottenham as they edged Reading to the points 6-4 in a thriller game on Saturday.
Berbatov put Spurs ahead in the seventh minute with a tap-in before Kalifa Cisse scored the equalizer. One-one was the half-time score and nobody expected what was to come after the stoppage.
Reading came out all guns blazing and took the lead in the 53rd minute as defender Ivar Ingimarsson scored from the centre of the penalty area.
Minutes later Berbatov smashed an equaliser, Dave Kitson restored Reading's lead in the 69th minute, and Berbatov completed his hat-trick only for Kitson to then put Reading 4-3 up.
Spurs' response was quite impressive as they dug out another equaliser when Tom Huddlestone picked out Malbranque, who found the corner of Hahnemann's net in the 76th.
Three minutes later and the mayhem continued as Tottenham were awarded a penalty after Sonko fouled Keane and Jermain Defoe scored from the rebound.
The outstanding Berbatov managed to have the final say with a fine shot from 18 metres past the beleaguered Hahnemann in the 83rd minute of the game.
Over the past months many have criticised Berbatov for his seeming disinterest and lethargic approach but after the match against Reading the enigmatic player now has 11 goals in his account this season.
The Bulgarian football star has been linked with a move away from the team but has recently reiterated his desire to stay in the club and repay the faith shown in him.
After the Saturday's game Tottenham's Spanish manager Juande Ramos said he strongly wanted Berbatov to stay in the team but that the decision rested with the management of the club and the player himself.
