Harry breaks Spurs goals record in Everton caning

Share

Kane continues to break record after record as he etches his name in the history books for his goal-scoring feats which has the world of football talking about his future in the game and if his playing days will always be with Spurs.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has heaped praise on his star striker Harry Kane as he closes in on yet another club record, but insists he holds no worry over losing the 24-year-old to another club in the near future.

The England captain moved past Teddy Sheringham, who netted 97 goals for the North London club.

Micheal Keane and Martin Stekelenburg are both doubts for Saturday's trip to Wembley.

The visitors responded with their first sight of goal just a minute later when Tosun steered the ball into the path of Wayne Rooney, but the former England captain dragged his subsequent effort wide of the target. "His life is probably fantastic at the moment".

The home sides managed to round off the scoring in the 81st minute as Dele Alli's delightful flick teed up Eriksen, who calmly slotted into the bottom corner.

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. But it was Son's man-of-the-match performance which secured all three points for Spurs, who were lively and unstoppable from kick off.

Son was again involved down the left channel as he burst forward before dragging a shot across goal which Kane swept home in similar fashion to Tottenham's opener, although there was a question of offside against the league's top-scorer.

Next, Son took the responsibility himself with a fiercely struck low shot which thudded against the base of the post.

And then the Englishman became the outright top scorer with another tap-in on the hour mark, with the assist this time supplied by Eric Dier.

His energy, skill and objective caused numerous problems for the Everton defence and he deservedly capped his performance with a goal - his fifth in a row at home in the league - and an assist.

- Harry Kane became only the third player to score at least 20 goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns, after Thierry Henry (5) and Alan Shearer (4).

However, fourth-place Liverpool only lead them by three points and have a tough matchup with Manchester City this weekend.
