I may have been offside - Kane plays down new Spurs scoring record

62' - Dominic Calvert-Lewin replaces Cenk Tosun for Everton.

Sam Allardyce: "Maybe I have a bit of responsibility by playing too much attacking-minded players and not as many defending-minded players".

Mauricio Pochettino's side controlled the match, with Son Heung-Min opening the scoring midway through the first half before Kane's second-half brace saw him break Teddy Sheringham's club record of 97 Premier League goals by one.

The 4-0 success took Spurs up to fourth ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, with the Reds taking on leaders Manchester City overnight.

The early pattern was predictable.

Tottenham have allowed out-of-favour winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou to join Burnley on loan until the end of the season but are yet to make any additions in January.

Tottenham took the lead four minutes later with Son tapping Serge Aurier's cross into the net.

Tottenham will be without midfielder Harry Winks against Everton.

Vikings take Bradford off IR for playoffs; 4th QB on roster
Bradford underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee before being placed on injured reserve on November 8. Bradford was back for the Bears game, but hobbled around in the first half before being pulled for Keenum.

"It's impossible to beat this guy because he's one of the best strikers and one of the best players but he works really hard".

He will be expected to ease Everton's woes in attack, but Emre has given Tosun a word of warning about his new manager. Rooney's strike was rushed, however, and he was also half a yard offside when Tosun found him unmarked with a near-post flick from Gylfi Sigurdsson's corner midway through the half. The Toffees have bagged a single goal in their last five matches; combine that with a single win in 20 away outings and you can see why Everton supporters are aging at a disproportionate rate.

The in-form England global, who took his tally in all competitions this season to 28 goals, matched Teddy Sheringham's feat after he tapped in Son Heung-min's through ball after the restart before prodding in Eric Dier's cross on the hour mark. Son was there waiting to tap home, and continue his fine run of form in front of goal.

Whatever instructions Allardyce gave his side at half-time were redundant two minutes after the restart. This time Son was the creator, demonstrating his skill and dribbling ability by twirling away from Jonjoe Kenny, rendering the inexperienced right-back an irrelevance as the move unfolded. Clearly relishing his full-time role this season, Son pirouetted his way past Mason Holgate on the halfway line before driving forward and laying the ball perfectly beyond Pickford's reach and into Kane's path.

"I am shocked and surprised that we performed as we did".

Morgan Schneiderlin replaced McCarthy in the 72nd minute, in a like-for-like move that begged the question why not use Lookman to try and at least register an effort on target??

This time it was Tottenham's turn to respond immediately.

Before the game Everton will have undoubtedly concentrated on nullifying Kane.
