Harry breaks Spurs goals record in Everton caning

  • Sam Allardyce warns Everton players they risk slide towards relegation trouble

Tottenham fans were delighted with manager Mauricio Pochettino's starting XI for the Premier League game at home to Everton on Saturday afternoon.

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.

Scoring goals isn't something Tottenham struggle with - especially with Harry Kane in this sort of form.

Spurs are now in fifth spot in the league, just outside the Champions League spaces, and three points behind Liverpool in fourth.

Everton responded with a chance of their own as Wayne Rooney dragged his left-footed effort wide from Cenk Tosun's long ball.

Tottenham took the lead four minutes later with Son tapping Serge Aurier's cross into the net.

Not even the prolific Kane has managed that feat, but the England global did add another record to his growing list of accolades just two minutes into the second half when he netted his 97th Premier League goal for Tottenham, drawing level with Sheringham.

"Tottenham look like they have overcome the problems they had in the early stages of playing there".


Watford pulled a goal back through an Andre Gray header and then equalised in controversial fashion right at the finish when Abdoulaye Doucoure turned in a Troy Deeney flick-on.

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

Kane has picked up where he left off in 2018, netting a brace against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup before another double against Everton at Wembley on Saturday took him past Teddy Sheringham's previous Premier League best for Spurs.

Just one minute later and Harry Kane crowned himself Tottenham Hotspur's all time top-scorer in the Premier League.

Eriksen smashes a thumping drive into the corner to finish off a wonderful move involving Aurier, Son and Alli.

This game should be a far more open affair, allowing Tottenham's attack to trouble Everton's defensive frailties.

Everton, meanwhile, slump to a fourth consecutive defeat across all competitions and a sixth game in a row without victory, during which time they have only managed two goals.
