On to the next game for ´proud´ Tottenham record-breaker Kane

On to the next game for ´proud´ Tottenham record-breaker Kane

The Toffees were the victims of their own downfall at times as they were dismantled by second half goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, with man of the match Heung-min Son opening the scoring in the first period.

Kane also became Spurs' all-time leading scorer in the Premier League, with his brace taking up to 98 league goals.

Kane doubled the lead two minutes after the interval after wonderful approach play by Son.

England man Kane bagged two against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup last week to take his season's tally to an astonishing 30 goals in 31 appearances.

According to BBC, Christian Eriksen smashed in a fourth from the edge of the penalty area late on after a fine backheel from Dele Alli.

Fifth-placed Tottenham moved to 44 points and are level with Liverpool who take on league leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

At this rate, Kane will also be targeting the most Premier League goals in one season which now stands at 31 for a 38 game season.

Serge Aurier was played into space on the right and his low cross into the six-yard box was tapped home by Son.

Spurs fans were pleased with the performance their side put in and took to social media to provide their reaction to one of their attacking players.

Kane would go on to break that record 12 minutes later when he scored his second goal of the evening.

Kane worked hard, dropping deep to bring centre-backs Phil Jagielka and Mason Holgate out of position and that created space for Pochettino's players to run into.

Everton had the ball in the net first but Wayne Rooney was correctly ruled offside.

Tottenham has no such problems with Kane.

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.

Emre Belozoglu only started five Premier League matches during the Sam Allardyce short-lived (but still far too long) era at Newcastle and doesn't have anything good to say about his former boss.

The Baggies secured their first top-flight win in 21 games with a 2-0 result against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday. "I'm so happy because for us it was a game that we must win, a massive three points for us today".

Kane - from an unorthodox, somewhat fortuitous finish, added his second, this time from a perfectly whipped in Eric Dier cross.
