Eriksen & Son Set for Improved Contracts Despite Defender's Wage Demands Stalling Renewal

Kane is the Premier League's most consistent goal scorer, he is now making his mark on the worldwide stage and only three players - Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Roberto Firmino - have scored more than his five goals in the Champions League this season. I think we are working and are awake about the market.

"They look well set for a top-four push, but need Dele Alli and Son Heung Min to keep topping up Harry Kane's bottomless goals bucket".

The former Ajax man is understood to be one of the players unhappy with Spurs' wage structure, however, the player remains happy at the club and is expected to sign a new contract.

"I think you know how the business is today", he said.

Tottenham are unbeaten in 10 league meetings (W5, D5).

The Premier League side have started discussions over a new contract for the 21-year-old.

It looked as though a replay would be needed to separate the two sides until Liverpool's new £75m defender Virgil Van Dijk headed a victor in the closing stages to make Everton the first Premier League casualty of this year's FA Cup.

Manchester City, perhaps? Even City do not have a bottomless pit and, with the Premier League leaders unable to sell out for a Carabao Cup semifinal this week, the numbers game suggests that the money coming in through the turnstiles and off the pitch commercially would not stack up to make a move for Kane financially viable.

While on paper this game appears to be a straight-forward win for Spurs, Everton are likely to prove a more complicated opponent than Tottenham fans will be hoping. Having scored two successive hat tricks last December, it's easy to see why many people are already drawing comparisons between Richards and Kane. He needs one goal to equal Teddy Sheringham's club record of 97 in the Premier League.

A few days before that win, the Lilywhites needed an 84th-minute equaliser from Heung-min Son to rescue a 1-1 draw at home to rivals West Ham United.

Sam Allardyce's side are winless in five matches and have lost three games in a row in all competitions.

Pochettino's side missed too many chances against West Ham and they can not afford to do the same this weekend if they want to get back into the top-four soon.

Dane Eriksen, 25, kicked off Spurs' spree of new agreements last season when he signed a £70,000-per-week deal that runs until 2020.
