Tottenham cruise to victory over Everton as Kane and Son shine

"Harry is fantastic and I congratulate him one more time", said Pochettino after Kane equalled and then surpassed Teddy Sheringham's previous record of 97 Premier League goals for the north London club.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce took the blame for his side's 4-0 thrashing at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, suggesting that he should have set up the team to be more "boring" rather than trying to outgun Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Six of Kane's goals came in the form of back-to-back hat-tricks against Burnley and Southampton either side of Christmas, while he had earlier netted a brace in a victory over Stoke.

West Brom won their opening two matches of the league season but had then gone 20 top-flight fixtures with victory going into Saturday's encounter against Brighton.

- Son Heung-min became only the second player to score in five consecutive home Premier League matches for Spurs, after Jermain Defoe in 2004.

Cenk Tosun had a forgettable debut for Everton but if he is worth £27million - after scoring goals in Turkey - you have to wonder how much Son is worth.

Tottenham remain in fifth spot, level on 44 points and goal difference with Liverpool ahead of their game with Manchester City live on Sky Sports on Sunday, while Everton are also still in ninth place.

"The disappointing thing for us is, what would the game have finished like had we scored the first goal when Wayne's got disallowed?"

"He deserves all the credit and a lot of praise".

The 24-year-old is creating history on a weekly basis this term, recently earning the tag as top scorer in a single calendar year in the Premier League en route to outscoring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.

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...

"I'm hugely disappointed in the professionalism of my players today", he said, admitting that the result could have been even worse than the 4-0 drubbing, which also featured goals from Son and Christian Eriksen, suggested. You play your way back in and be professional about it.

Desperately in need of some inspiration, Everton pushed Rooney further forward to play alongside Tosun and on 57 minutes, replaced Bolasie with Aaron Lennon. I've seen it now and it's probably what was apparent before I got here. We've got to cut it out and we've got to cut it out starting tomorrow.
