Kane double helps Spurs thrash woeful Everton


Tottenham Hotspur have moved to within two points of a Champions League qualification as a Harry Kane double helped them ease past a dreadful Everton 4-0 at Wembley Stadium.

After Sam Allardyce sent in a team-sheet which including four primarily attacking players, it looked like there might be goals in the game for Spurs and that's how it transpired.

Man-of-the-Match Son Heung-min put Mauricio Pochettino's side ahead on 26 minutes when he diverted Serge Aurier's low drive into the unguarded net.

Kane doubled their advantage just over a minute after the break when he tapped home from close range.

With the Toffees offering nothing in attack and with a nervy, disorganised defence, it was now a question of how many Spurs were going to win by and Son almost made it three soon after but his fierce strike bounced back off the post with Jordan Pickford beaten.

Kane did make it 3-0 just before the hour-mark when he finished Eric Dier's excellent low cross.

The icing on the cake came nine minutes from time when a wonderful move involving a number of Spurs players ended with Dele Alli instantly flicking the ball to Eriksen and the Dane swept home first time from 15 yards.

With Everton, who didn't have a single shot on target, well beaten, Spurs closed out the remainder of the game with ease and they remain in fifth place.

The defeat was ninth-placed Everton's fourth in-a-row and, with the players' confidence at rock bottom, they will be desperate to get back on track in their next game which is at Goodison Park against basement dwellers West Brom.
