Kane brace brings another record in his young Tottenham career

Posted January 14, 2018

Allardyce could hand an Everton debut to January signing Cenk Tosun after he joined the club from Besiktas.

"The service provided in the final third is one of our weaknesses, which is why we are not scoring enough goals".

Tottenham finished in second place in the Premier League table last term after finishing seven points adrift of champions Chelsea.

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.

Suddenly Tottenham looked unsafe every time they came forward, and they should have had a third five minutes later when Dele Alli exchanged passes with Son on his way into the box, only to fire his finish into the side-netting with only the keeper to beat.

Kane has this season already broken Alan Shearer's record for most Premier League goals in a calendar year with 39, while also finishing 2017 with more goals than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

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.

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

More telling than the number of goals is the amount of games in which this venerable record was set: Teddy Sheringham scored 97 goals in 236 appearances; Jermain Defoe scored 91 goals in 276 appearance; Robbie Keane also scored 91 times, his coming in 238 matches; Kane has scored 98 goals in only 135 Premier League matches.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League games against Everton (W5 D5), their longest such run against them since a run of 13 between 1997 and 2003.

Son was involved again as Alli had a chance to make it three with 53 minutes played but could only steer his attempted finish into the side netting.

This game should be a far more open affair, allowing Tottenham's attack to trouble Everton's defensive frailties.

The fourth goal did not flatter a Spurs side who now sit level on points and goal difference with Liverpool ahead of the Reds' Anfield showdown with league leaders Manchester City on Sunday.
