Harry Kane sets new Spurs record as Chelsea stumble

Goals by midfielders Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen on either side of a Harry Kane double handed ninth-placed Everton their third league defeat in a row.

Kane netted twice in Spurs' 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley, moving him to 98 Premier League goals and one clear of Teddy Sheringham.

Harry Kane scored his way to another record.

"I think they're going to win the league this season, but they spent a similar amount previous year and didn't win it".

South Korean Son Heung Min had got Spurs off and running with the first goal to equal former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe's record of scoring in five successive home matches. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don't.

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.

"These boys are great, they set me up and we've got to keep going and winning games". Maybe we had an unlucky first half of the season with regards to scoring goals but there are some quality strikers in this team and in the second half of the season I am hoping to score a lot more goals.

The South Korea worldwide was involved again as Kane netted his first of the game two minutes after the restart.

Kane remains well adrift of Spurs legend Jimmy Greaves's club tally of 220 goals in 321 First Division appearances - to the relief of manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Wayne Rooney then dragged an effort wide at the other end and looked to have given Everton the lead in the 22nd minute as he turned Tosun's flick-on beyond Hugo Lloris from point-blank range, only to be correctly denied by the offside flag. While manager Sam Allardyce was left to rue the fact the same verdict was not given against Kane as he put Tottenham 2-0 up, he pulled no punches in his assessment of what came next.

Elsewhere, there were more controversial refereeing decisions as English football continued to debate whether the video assistant referee (VAR) system, which was tested in some cup games last week, would benefit the Premier League. You play your way back in and be professional about it. "I think I saw a lot of very exhausted players", Conte said.

Desperately in need of some inspiration, Everton pushed Rooney further forward to play alongside Tosun and on 57 minutes, replaced Bolasie with Aaron Lennon.

"We can do nothing now", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino diplomatically. I've got to cut it out, starting tomorrow, really.
