English Premier League match report Tottenham Hotspur v Everton 13 January 2018

"It was a great performance, but it's not only today", Pochettino said of the forward.

Sam Allardyce says Everton's players are fully aware of how to behave on social media, as the club waits to discover whether Mason Holgate will be punished by the Football Association for making alleged homophobic comments on social media several years ago.

South Korean Son Heung Min had got Spurs off and running with the first goal to equal former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe's record of scoring in five successive home matches.

Kane grabbed Spurs' second goal just after the break as he latched on to Heung-min Son's cross, finishing from close range.

Son scored the opening goal in the Spurs' 4-0 win over Everton in their English Premier League (EPL) match at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday.

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

After ending 2017 as the highest goalscorer of the year surpassing Lionel Messi, Harry Kane has now become the leading Premier League goalscorer for Tottenham Hotspur. The goal was rightfully ruled out for offside.

If Tottenham had scored one more during the final nine minutes they would have gone ahead of Liverpool into fourth place.

"Maybe I have a bit of responsibility by playing too much attacking-minded players and not as many defending-minded players". I hadn't seen it since I got here.

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.

Although the arrival of Turkish striker Cenk Tosun may yet revitalise Everton's as yet failed effort to replace Romelu Lukaku, Allardyce is keen to shift the blame as far from himself as possible.

Chelsea were unable to pierce Leicester's defence and were second-best for long periods at Stamford Bridge, even after visiting left-back Ben Chilwell was sent off for a second bookable offence midway through the second half. I saw some good signs of the players last week against Liverpool and I saw some of the worst signs in the second half today which is massively worrying.

We are blessed to be watching Harry Kane in this form.

- Dele Alli has provided seven assists in his 22 Premier League games this season, matching his tally from 37 league games in 2016-17.
