Harry Kane becomes Tottenham's record Premier League goal scorer

The England striker moved onto 98 goals, surpassing the previous mark of 97 set by Teddy Sheringham, thanks to two tap-ins at Wembley Stadium.

Spurs: Lloris (6), Aurier (7), Sanchez (7), Vertonghen (7), Davies (7), Dier (7), Dembele (7), Eriksen (7), Son (9), Alli (7), Kane (8).

The win keeps Tottenham in fifth, level with Liverpool ahead of their match against leaders Manchester City on Sunday, and three points behind Chelsea after their 0-0 draw with Leicester.

Everton had the ball in the back of the net after 21 minutes but Wayne Rooney's strike was flagged offside.

Tottenham made one change with Mousa Dembele replacing Moussa Sissoko.

Pochettino is confident that the records will continue falling, with 12 more goals required for the most scored in a single campaign in the competition's history.

The South Korean global charged down the left flank and in a manner similar to the first goal, he dragged his shot into the box with Kane tapping the ball into the net.

Kane's goals have come in only 135 games, while Sheringham took 237.

But perhaps the best goal of the evening came in the 81st minute after a fine flowing move saw Eriksen net Spurs' fourth.


"When you look at the number of players who have been brought into this country from overseas - even in the summer - and not worked, particularly up front, it is a risk".

Chelsea did little to take the spotlight away from under-fire manager Antonio Conte in a goalless draw with Leicester City on Saturday while Harry Kane broke another record after a brace in Tottenham's 4-0 hammering of Everton.

"He can do anything because of his mentality and how professional he is".

"Harry can achieve all that he wishes to and all he wants to because it is unbelievable the way he is able to work and his willingness. He is always looking to improve and that's what makes him special".

Sam Allardyce says the door remains open for Luke Garbutt to resurrect his Everton career.

"It was a shocking second-half performance".

Kane, who ended 2017 as Europe's leading marksman of the year in the top five leagues, has started 2018 in the same vein but, even while homing in on 100 league goals for Spurs, he remains far adrift of the 220 notched by the great Greaves. "Tottenham didn't have too many chances to score". They can cement that with a win at the home of the England senior team, who Allardyce managed for one game but never at Wembley.
