Harry Kane sets more records as Spurs rip Everton in Premier League

Harry Kane sets more records as Spurs rip Everton in Premier League

TOTTENHAM boss Mauricio Pochettino says there is more to come from Harry Kane after the England striker became the club's leading goalscorer in the English Premier League.

The former England captain thought he had scored after 22 minutes, nipping past his marker to nod in a Tosun header from an Everton corner only to see the raised offside flag.

For much of the match, however, Kane had played second fiddle to Son Heung-min, who broke the deadlock after 26 minutes and set up Kane's first shortly after the interval. If you can play like that at Liverpool and just at the death get beat, surely you can come here to Tottenham and deliver the same performance and maybe get a result. "Luckily it went my way".

The England worldwide already broken Alan Shearer's tally of most Premier League goals scored in a single calendar year, 36, and has scored eight top-flight hat-tricks - equalling the number managed by Thierry Henry and just two short of Shearer's record nine.

The busy visiting keeper denied Son and Dele Alli with a fine double reaction save as Spurs threatened to add a fourth.

By contrast, London rivals Chelsea did little to take the spotlight away from under-fire manager Antonio Conte in a goalless draw with 10-man Leicester City.

However, it was the Foxes who had the better of the first half, during which Chelsea defender Gary Cahill was forced off injured.

"It's something I'm very proud of but it's on to the next one, we've got to keep going", he said after notching his 20th league goal of the season.

The 24-year-old is creating history on a weekly basis this term, recently earning the tag as top scorer in a single calendar year in the Premier League en route to outscoring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.

"It was a shock second-half performance".

Watford snatched a 2-2 draw against Southampton at Vicarage Road with a controversial late goal from Abdoulaye Doucoure, which was bundled over the line with his right hand.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has told Goal that he can't talk about rumours suggesting that he will be offered a new deal to stay with the club. "To live this injustice is really hard".

French midfielder Doucoure then stooped to bundle the ball in as 90 minutes were up.

"It was probably what was apparent before I got here and I've got to cut it out, and cut it out starting tomorrow".

West Ham United moved further away from the relegation zone after they thumped Huddersfield Town 4-1 on Saturday afternoon.

The Hammers opened the scoring at Huddersfield in the 25th minute when Joe Lolley was dispossessed, with Mark Noble unleashing a powerful shot, only for Lolley to curl in an equaliser five minutes before the break.
