Record-breaking Kane fires Tottenham past Everton

Record-breaking Kane fires Tottenham past Everton

Spurs headed into the match on a 10-game unbeaten streak at home and knew that a victory would leave them just three points behind Chelsea, who recorded a goalless draw against 10-man Leicester, and level with Liverpool, who host Manchester City on Sunday. The manager selected an offensive looking starting eleven of: Pickford, Martina, Jagielka (c), Holgate, Kenny, McCarthy, Gueye, Bolasie, Rooney, Sigurdsson and Cenk Tosun wearing the number 14 shirt.

Kane bagged his second and Spurs' third just before the hour mark by turning home Eric Dier's cross in the box.

Kane has now scored 20 league goals this season, three more than the next most prolific, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

Kane's latest achievement was reached on Saturday evening, as he netted a brace against Everton to overtake Teddy Sheringham as Tottenham's leading goalscorer in the Premier League era.

- This was Tottenham's biggest margin of victory in a game against Everton since a 10-4 win in October 1958. "This way he's going to break all the records in the Premier League and in England, and it's fantastic because he helps the team every week".

"He can achieve all that he wants because of his willingness to work".

Sam Allardyce maybe did the firefighter job he was brought in to do too quickly as on the evidence of this no-show at Wembley, the gig of moving Everton higher up the table AND playing attractive, winning football looks beyond him. "He's always thinking and trying to improve, improve, improve and score goals". He said felt they could go attacking but he should have "gone back to being a bit more boring".

Son, who has had a hand in more goals at Wembley than any other Tottenham player this season with seven goals and four assists, was comfortably the best player on the pitch but it was Kane who assumed centre stage as his 98th top-flight goal arrived in the 59th minute.

A 4-0 reversal at Wembley saw the Blues' wait for a win stretch to six games in all competitions with a particularly disappointing showing in the second half. "It was massively worrying in terms of how can a performance become so bad in such a short period of time".

Spurs snatched their deserved lead four minutes later, when Son tapped in for his eighth goal of the season.

As well as Son and Kane, Alli also proved a constant pain to the Everton midfield and defence. After some attractive passing from Spurs the Dane smashed the ball beyond a helpless Jordan Pickford, having also produced a fine performance.

And of course, let's not forget he matched his own record on Saturday, scoring in five successive home Premier League games and will be hoping to surpass this against Manchester United in a few weeks' time (January 31).
