'Thank God' - Tottenham fans delighted at this Poch line-up decision v Everton

'Thank God' - Tottenham fans delighted at this Poch line-up decision v Everton

Harry Kane scored twice in a comfortable home victory over Everton to become Tottenham's record Premier League goalscorer.

When the second goal goes doesn't allow us to throw the towel in and not do the right things.
Immediately there was a greater intensity to their play, with Kane testing Jordan Pickford's reflexes with a curling shot from 18 yards, and they took the lead with an impressive goal.

Son could have added the third in the 58th minute, collecting a cross-field pass from Kane before cutting across the top of the box and striking, but his thunderous effort thrashed against the woodwork before going wide, although Kane made sure to net another Spurs goal a minute later.

Spurs: Lloris (6), Aurier (7), Sanchez (7), Vertonghen (7), Davies (7), Dier (7), Dembele (7), Eriksen (7), Son (9), Alli (7), Kane (8).

Everton tried to find a way back into the match and, with five minutes remaining until the break, Tosun got down the left but produced a disappointing cutback with colleagues well placed.

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.

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.

England striker Kane has now scored 20 times in the Premier League this season, three more than any other player, and has hit 28 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

The 4-0 success took Spurs up to fourth ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, with the Reds taking on leaders Manchester City overnight.

"It is unbelievable the way that he is able to work and his willingness".

"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".

Allardyce used all three substitutes to nearly no effect as the second half progressed and Everton all but disappeared from the contest.

Everton have won only one of their last 43 Premier League away games against one of the "big six" (1-0 at Man Utd in December 2013) - drawing 15 and losing 27.

Prior to his arrival, Tosun had scored 14 goals for Besiktas, including four in the Champions League.

Sam Allardyce admits he was shocked by Everton's "professionalism" in their defeat to Tottenham.

Harry Kane bagged his second brace against Everton this season as Tottenham Hotspur eased to three points to pile the pressure on Sam Allardyce.

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