Pochettino: Kane will break all Premier League & England records

Tottenham made one change with Mousa Dembele replacing Moussa Sissoko.

However, after his countryman Cenk Tosun signed for Everton, the one-time Newcastle player once against couldn't resist getting a dig in.

This seemed to put the fire into Tottenham as Son scored the opening not long after.

It was no more than Spurs deserved, but for the Toffees, following a strong start under Allardyce, they failed to register a single shot on target, and are now six matches without a win and once more looking over their shoulders.

But today belonged to Harry Kane who brought his goalscoring total in the Premier League this season to 20.

That was his 97th Premier League goal - and his 98th came only 12 minutes later as he scuffed a shot into the net from Dier's cross.

The South Korean was again involved in the fourth, playing through to Alli, who flicked on to Christian Eriksen and the Dane finished in emphatic style. His 39 goals saw him top Alan Shearer's record for Premier League goals scored in a calendar year, beating the 36 Shearer managed back in 1995.

Harry Kane continued to rewrite the history books as his brace helped Tottenham cruise to a comfortable 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley on Saturday.

In the process he took his tally against Everton to four this season, helping his team move level with Liverpool in fourth place and combining brilliantly with the waspish Son Heung-min.


A new contract for the Dane, who also guided his country to this year's World Cup, plus Daniel Levy as his club's chairman is surely set to make his transfer fee an eye-watering one.

"He's unbelievable, the way he's able to work, his willingness".

"He is always thinking "improve, improve, improve and how to score goals and to improve the team" because his mentality is always collective and that is so important to explain to people".

On the other hand, Sam Allardyce took the responsibility of Everton's shocking performance at Wembley.

"I might have been offside [for his first] but sometimes you get them sometimes you don't".

"It was a shock second-half performance". I saw some good signs of the players last week against Liverpool and I saw some of the worst signs in the second half today which is massively worrying.

Son, played in by Kane, cut inside off the right to fire in a shot that beat Pickford but came back off the post as Spurs continued to have much the better of the play, and the nearly inevitable third goal came in the 59th minute as Kane bagged his second bisecting Holgate and Kenny to get on the end of a cross from Dier.

He continually powered towards goal whenever he had possession, linking up superbly with Alli and Kane on numerous occasions.
