Dreadful Everton thumped by Spurs at Wembley

Share

In-form Tottenham are unbeaten in ten Premier League matches at Wembley Stadium ahead of this evening's clash with an out-of-sorts Everton and Spurs could move into the top-four with victory on "home" soil.

He now owns a piece of Tottenham history after he helped Spurs put Everton to the sword, his brace taking him past Teddy Sheringham's previous record of 97.

Everton haven't won away in the league at Spurs since November 2008 (1-0), drawing three and losing five since then.

Antonio Conte's side could have moved above Manchester United and up to second but were outplayed by a Foxes team that wasted several good chances and ended the game with 10 men after Ben Chilwell picked up a second booking.

But Spurs, and once again Kane, now had the bit between their teeth as he took the clubs Premier League record for himself after arriving unmarked to meet Eric Dier's pinpoint centre with an untidy, but nonetheless equally effective finish.

England striker Kane rounded off a stellar 2017 by breaking Alan Shearer's record for the most Premier League goals in a calendar year and outscored Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi for club and country over the 12-month period. "His life is probably fantastic at the moment".

Kane then drew another save from Pickford before the influential Son came within a whisker of deservedly doubling his personal tally when he collected Kane's crossfield pass, cut inside past two defenders and then fired a low strike against the post with the keeper beaten.

At this rate, Kane will also be targeting the most Premier League goals in one season which now stands at 31 for a 38 game season.

That's a gorgeous ball from Christian Eriksen to find Serge Aurier, who had acres of space to work with.

They sit three points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool in the table.

Having not lost any of their first six Premier League games under Sam Allardyce (W3 D3), the Toffees have now lost their last two.
