Harry Kane And Dele Alli Start - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Everton Confirmed

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 also became Spurs' all-time leading scorer in the Premier League, with his brace taking up to 98 league goals.

Harry Kane needs two more goals to reach his Premier League century.

Tottenham took the lead four minutes later with Son tapping Serge Aurier's cross into the net.

"I thought we had cut that out, so for me it is about making the players understand that it has happened once, in the second half - it can not happen again".

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that "special" striker Harry Kane has the ability to break every record in his sight.

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.

Dubbed a one-season wonder by opposition fans after scoring 21 goals in his first full campaign with Spurs, Kane has improved year-on-year.

On the day it was revealed Kevin Keegan had returned as manager, Emre was brought back into the team for the cup replay against Stoke and with Newcastle one goal up, managed to get himself sent off after 29 minutes.

While Kane may take the headlines for breaking more records, it was in fact Son who was the most attacking player on the field and was involved in three of the four Spurs goals.

Tottenham will be without midfielder Harry Winks as he's still working his way back from an ankle injury while Toby Alderweireld is also still nursing a hamstring problem. Then, when the second goal goes in and it's probably offside, that doesn't allow us to throw the towel in for me and not do the right things.

The woodwork denied Son a second as he struck the left-hand post, but Tottenham were soon celebrating again as Kane surpassed Sheringham by meeting Eric Dier's curling delivery with a scruffy finish into the ground that looped over Pickford.

"It was a completely undisciplined performance after the second goal went in, which hugely surprised me", said the former England boss.

Just 29.6% of Everton's Premier League points this season have come away from home (8/27), the lowest ratio in the division.

Tottenham will now be turning their attention to Southampton, where the two teams will meet in the Premier League next Sunday at St. Mary's Stadium.
