Harry Kane sets new Spurs record, Chelsea held by Leicester City

Harry Kane scored twice, albeit from an offside position for one of them, in between goals from Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen as Spurs romped to victory in the second half, exploiting abysmal defending from Allardyce's men who also failed to register a shot on Hugo Lloris's goal at the other end.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has warned fans about an impending drop back to relegation danger after his side's "embarrassing" 4-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday evening.

"It's something I'm very proud of but it's on to the next one, we've got to keep going", he said.

Son could have scored his second goal of the match in the 58th, but his left footed strike hit the post.

"I reverted back to our Liverpool performance and thought if the team can play like that. surely you can come to Tottenham and deliver the same performance and maybe get a result. I'm so happy, it's fantastic because he helps for the win".

With Tottenham Hotspur playing in Saturday's late kick-off against Everton and runaway leaders Manchester City not facing Liverpool until Sunday, Chelsea were the only top six side involved in a 1500 GMT kick-off.


"After having a wonderful start, we are back on risky ground with our results and it's our responsibility to get results, not wait to see if other teams have lost". He deserves all the credit and the praise. Everything Kane touches turns into gold, which his 98th, and record-setting Premier League goal, was evident of.

Mauricio Pochettino says that Harry Kane's willingness to improve will see him continue setting goalscoring records on a regular basis.

Son was the architect as he went past Kenny to surge down the left flank before eluding Mason Holgate and crossing for Kane to net from close range on 47 minutes. You play your way back in and be professional about it. "But for Jordan Pickford they would have had more goals today and I'm hugely disappointed in the professionalism of my players".

However, Andre Gray reduced the deficit before Abdoulaye Doucoure leveled matters in the 90th minute with a controversial goal, with replays showing the midfielder used his hand.

"We can do nothing now", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino diplomatically.

Pochettino added: "What is really important to explain to everyone is that although he scores lots of goals, his mentality is always to work for the team and that is what makes him such a special player". However, Watford striker Troy Deeney admitted that had the VAR system been in operation "we probably wouldn't have got it".
