Kane's first goal came after Son Heung-Min had turned Jonjoe Kenny sublimely and crossed, and the South Korean made it 1-0 win a tap-in, scoring for a fifth consecutive league game before playing a part in Christian Eriksen's brilliant fourth.

"It was a fantastic performance, I'm very pleased, I think we fully deserved this in the end, the victory", Pochettino said.

"He's such a talented player, so professional and I'm very happy". I congratulate him, he deserves the credit.

- Everton failed to record a shot on target for the fourth time in a Premier League match this season - no side has failed to do so in more games (Swansea also 4).

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that "special" striker Harry Kane has the ability to break every record in his sight.


But he loves facing the men from Goodison Park and has scored four goals in his last two appearances against them.

Kane's double in the 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley took his tally to 98 goals in the EPL, going one past Teddy Sheringham's previous record.

And Kane has been in superb form against Everton as well, scoring four goals in the last two meetings between these two clubs.

Harry Kane grabbed the first of his brace just minutes after the restart before he grabbed his second for Spurs with an hour played.

For much of the match, however, Kane had played second fiddle to Son Heung-min, who broke the deadlock after 26 minutes and set up Kane's first shortly after the interval.


89' - Wayne Rooney crosses for Dominic Calvert-Lewin but Jan Vertonghen gets just enough on the ball to divert it away from the Everton substitute.

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. I didn't expect to see it.

"What I can't excuse is out capitulation after we went 2-0 down".

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.

Spurs will take on Serie A giants Juventus in the Champions League last 16 next month after Tottenham finished ahead of defending champions Real Madrid and Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the group stage.
