Redknapp explains why Kane will not leave Tottenham soon

Leicester City handed major boost with key player set to return this weekend against Chelsea

Leicester City handed major boost with key player set to return this weekend against Chelsea

Tottenham dismantled Everton 4-0 in their Premier League clash on Saturday with striker Harry Kane smashing another record with his goal scoring might.

Son followed that assist with a drive that hit the post flush from 18 yards out.

Doucoure turned the ball in with his hand as he stooped for a header but, with no video assistant referees in the Premier League, the goal stood and denied Southampton a first league win in 10 games.

However, it did not take long for Tottenham to change that statistic and, on 47 minutes, Kane tapped home after smart work by Son on the left.

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

62' - Dominic Calvert-Lewin replaces Cenk Tosun for Everton.

But with 26 minutes gone, Son timed everything right when Serge Aurier's scuffed shot fizzed across the box and he steered the ball home from close range.

"The disappointing thing for us is, what would the game have finished like had we scored the first goal when Wayne's got disallowed?"

In doing so, Kane become only the third player to net 20 times in the league for four season in a row. A flowing move saw Dele Alli flick a reverse pass into Eriksen and the Dane thumped home.


Having already beaten Alan Shearer's calendar-year record for the most Premier League goals (39), the England global also has two successive Golden Boots and has just equalled the all-time record for the number of Premier League Player of the Month awards, as his sixth has taken him level with Steven Gerrard.

Spurs continued their fine recent form as they earned a precious three points that puts them joint fourth in the Premier League table with Liverpool.

Mauricio Pochettino: "He [Harry Kane] can do everything because of his mentality and how he is as a professional".

Tottenham will look to close-in on the top four with a win when they take on Everton at Wembley on Saturday evening.

Their lack of activity has come in stark contrast to most of the Premier League's top six. "He is always looking to improve and that's what makes him special".

For all of Tottenham's brilliance, Everton failed to register a single shot on target and - following a strong start under Sam Allardyce - they are now without a win from their last six matches. If it weren't for Jordan Pickford they would have had more today.

"I am shocked and surprised that we performed as we did".

"In this way he's going to break all the records in the Premier League and England".

He continually powered towards goal whenever he had possession, linking up superbly with Alli and Kane on numerous occasions.
