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

Domingo, 14 Ene, 2018

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes the Premier League single-season scoring record of 34 goals is under threat from Harry Kane after the striker grabbed two more in a 4-0 victory over Everton at Wembley.

"I tried to help my teammates and tried to show performance for the fans".

'I thought he was good and he's experienced a difficult game, and there won't be many more difficult ones to play away from home than against Tottenham' Allardyce said.

The good news is that Spurs go in to this weekend's fixture against Everton in reasonably good shape.

Last season was Kane's best so far, averaging 1.03 goals per 90 minutes after scoring 29 in 30 games.

"It's always a big achievement and to do it in so few games as he's done is fantastic and of course Sonny with how he plays, it's a big thing to play in the team with them both".

Son sent a glancing header over the bar from Eriksen's free-kick but he did not have to wait too long for his 11 goal of the season.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce said his side "lacked professionalism" as they were thrashed by Tottenham at Wembley. I've see it now and it probably was before I got here and I've got to cut it out, cut it out starting tomorrow.

"I'm so happy because these points give us the belief and confidence to fight with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United for a place in the top four".

It was suggested earlier this week that Everton had made signing a left-back a priority in January before Theo Walcott became available.

Tottenham are also 2 points ahead of 6th placed Arsenal and will have to win if they wish to stay ahead of their rivals and keep their chances of making the top four alive.

England striker Kane took his Spurs total in the competition to 98, leaving him one clear of White Hart Lane legend Teddy Sheringham.

Christian Eriksen, meanwhile, one of the club's most talented assets, is set to be offered a new deal in a bid to fend off interest from clubs abroad.

Manuel Lanzini bagged a brace while Mark Noble and Marko Arnautovic also got on the score-sheet for the Hammers. The fullback hardly provided anything going forward and had a rather mediocre performance.

The Everton goalkeeper, however, could do nothing to stop Son from scoring the opener. Besides the trio, Pochettino has a fully fit squad to pick from.

Spurs needed less than two minutes of the second half to double their lead as Son turned Kenny inside out to get away and gain the left hand side of the box and his cross was tucked home by Kane although looking suspiciously offside in doing so... But it is a necessity at the minute.
