English Premier League match report Tottenham Hotspur v Everton 13 January 2018

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).

Heung-min Son opened the scoring for Spurs in the 26th minute at Wembley Stadium and it stayed 1-0 at the break.

The England global twice netted from close range- converting passes from Son Heung-min and Eric Dier- to take his Premier League tally to 98, one more than Teddy Sheringham scored for Spurs. They move onto 44 points, level with fourth-placed Liverpool, who take on Manchester City at Anfield tomorrow.

While Sam Allardyce did his utmost, through mind-numbingly boring defensive tactics, to stifle and frustrate Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino's men were up to the test. Totenham's fist good chance fell in the 15th minute to Son, whose flicked header from a Christian Eriksen free kick delivery skimmed inches over the crossbar.

After a bright opening spell had produced little in the way of clear chances, Spurs came close to the breakthrough when Christian Eriksen whipped in a free kick which Son Heung-Min headed over.

"The good thing is Jimmy Greaves' record is far (away) so not every week he is going to break something". You play your way back in and be professional about it.

Everton had the ball in the back of the net after 21 minutes but Wayne Rooney's strike was flagged offside.

Mauricio Pochettino has endorsed Daniel Levy's claim that no Tottenham player will leave against the club's wishes ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Kane is also only the third player to score at least 20 goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns after Thierry Henry (five) and Alan Shearer (four).

The Baggies secured their first top-flight win in 21 games with a 2-0 result against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

"When the second goal went in and if it was offside it was a killer, but that doesn't allow us to throw the towel in and relinquish that defensive responsibility".

This time he became Tottenham's highest ever Premier League scorer by surpassing Teddy Sherringham's 97-goal tally.

Kane then took over, tapping home a Son centre before he scored a scruffy second after some poor Everton defending following an Eric Dier cross.

"Harry is happy. Always, I told our fans, he is happy", Pochettino said.

Tottenham finished in second place in the Premier League table last term after finishing seven points adrift of champions Chelsea.
