Kane Sets Tottenham Scoring Record In Everton Rout

Kane Sets Tottenham Scoring Record In Everton Rout

"It will be a tough game to play because of the quality of their side, but you hope Wembley will bring the best out of our players because they have the chance to play in such an iconic stadium".

Harry Kane struck twice to become Tottenham Hotspur's all-time leading Premier League scorer as they beat Everton 4-0 at Wembley.

Signed from Besiktas for £25million at the start of the window, Cenk Tosun made his Everton debut against Spurs and despite not scoring, there were positives to draw from it.

There are not many thing Kane has failed to do for Spurs in terms of scoring - but one thing is score in five successive Premier League home games.

The visitors thought they had broken the deadlock in the 22nd minute when Rooney diverted Tosun's header past Hugo Lloris from close range but celebrations were cut short by the offside flag.

That scare seemed to spark Tottenham into life, and Kane in particular began to threaten moments later with three efforts in quick succession which all needed to be saved by Pickford.

Eriksen played the killer a pass, an absolutely brilliant ball out wide to Serge Aurier and he took one touch before delivered what appeared to be a shot.

Everton now sit ninth in the division but they have been woeful away from home having taken just 8 points from a possible 27 on the road so far this campaign.

"Tottenham look like they have overcome the problems they had in the early stages of playing there".

Watford came back from two goals down to register a 2-2 draw with Southampton at Vicarage Road.

Losing 4-0 to Spurs, Everton have now lost eight of their 12 away Premier League games so far this season and have won just once, against Newcastle in December.

Kane has picked up where he left off in 2018, netting a brace against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup before another double against Everton at Wembley on Saturday took him past Teddy Sheringham's previous Premier League best for Spurs.

Defensive stability? Yes. Free-flowing, attacking prowess?

Tottenham can reduce the gap between themselves and the top four with a win that would put them level on points with Liverpool who play Manchester City tomorrow.
