EPL: Kane at the double as Spurs rout Everton

Harry Kane is on course to break all the goalscoring records in top-flight English football after setting his latest landmark on Saturday, the striker's Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, believes.

Kane has now scored 20 league goals this season, three more than the next most prolific, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah. "I should have got back to being a bit more boring and a bit less adventurous".

Steve Walsh was first to watch Cenk, he informed Sam Allardyce who was impressed.

"I've got to cut it out, starting tomorrow". If we take that kind of performance into the Premier League games, I think we can be a problem for every team we come up against in the second half of the season.

Tottenham are also unbeaten against Everton in their last 10 clashes, so it's a given they will be confident going into this one.

In a odd game that ebbed and flowed, Wayne Rooney had the first chance after a quiet opening, with the striker latching onto a long kick from Jordan Pickford and dragging a left-footed shot wide of the right post from inside the area on 16 minutes.

Wayne Rooney then dragged an effort wide at the other end and looked to have given Everton the lead in the 22nd minute as he turned Tosun's flick-on beyond Hugo Lloris from point-blank range, only to be correctly denied by the offside flag.

Yet, a new day brings a new record to break for the 24-year-old as he is two goals away from moving past Teddy Sheringham's club goal scoring record in the Premier League (97), which he could achieve against Everton on Saturday. "I've seen it, and I have to address it as quickly as possible".

As part of that process Allardyce will sit down with his players at the club's Finch Farm base next week and show them a video of this game. "I saw the good side of the players last week against Liverpool and some of the worst side of them today".

Allardyce added: "It was a very hard day for (new signing) Cenk Tosun on his debut today, a very hard day for us all in the end". I know that if I can get back to anywhere near my previous level, I'll be able to create lots of problems for defences.
