Sam Allardyce Left Stunned As Players "Throw In The Towel" Against Spurs

Sam Allardyce Left Stunned As Players

In a record-breaking game Kane also scored his 97th and 98th league goals for Spurs meaning he surpassed Teddy Sheringham as the club's leading Premier League scorer.

Kane made it three on 60 minutes with a finish he glanced in from an Eric Dier cross- a messy goal, but the one that took him past Sheringham.

But perhaps the best goal of the evening came in the 81st minute after a fine flowing move saw Eriksen net Spurs' fourth. He spun on a dime in the 47th minute to leave his mark in the dust and smartly, if not inadvertently, whipped the ball into Kane's path, who was left with the easiest of tap ins.

Spurs needed less than two minutes of the second half to double their lead as Son turned Kenny inside out to get away and gain the left hand side of the box and his cross was tucked home by Kane although looking suspiciously offside in doing so...

The former Ajax man is understood to be one of the players unhappy with Spurs' wage structure, however, the player remains happy at the club and is expected to sign a new contract.

The talk for Everton coming into the game had been about Tosun and Allardyce's admission that, having improved defensively, he and his team now had to add goals and entertainment to their game.

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. A flowing move saw Dele Alli flick a reverse pass into Eriksen and the Dane thumped home.

With his 19th and 20th Premier League goals - six in three matches against the Toffees - Kane's blistering goal-scoring form continues.

The 4-0 success took Spurs up to fourth ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, with the Reds taking on leaders Manchester City overnight. "With his mentality and his professionalism he can achieve all that he wishes".

Everton looked as bad as they have at any point this season in succumbing to a 4-0 capitulation at Wembley against Tottenham Hotspur, and manager Sam Allardyce did not shy away from blaming the players for the collapse.

"Of course, all the clubs and the managers want to keep their best players and we are in the same way, to keep the best and try to make the team stronger each season".

"It was a shock second-half performance".

Everton's reply was immediate and direct from a Jordan Pickford kick upfield.

The South Korea forward has been involved in more goals at Wembley this season than any other Tottenham player, scoring seven and assisting four.

Despite losing to Tottenham, Everton remain ninth in the Premier League, with 27 points from 23 games.

"Allardyce lets his striker feel alone on pitch and his system can't really provide for his team's striker".
