Kane and Son on song for Spurs

Chelsea player ratings: Rudiger woeful as toothless Blues endure Leicester stalemate

Mauricio Pochettino backed Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane to break the record amount of goals scored in a Premier League season following his brace during this evening's 4-0 win over Everton. Eriksen whipped a superb free-kick into the box, which met the head of Son at the near post after a bursting run, but he could only flash the effort over the crossbar.

The goal drew Kane level with Sheringham, but it would soon get even better for the England worldwide.

However, it did not take long for Tottenham to change that statistic and, on 47 minutes, Kane tapped home after smart work by Son on the left. 55' - Idrissa Gueye concedes possession in the centre circle and that allows Harry Kane to drive towards the Everton goal and get a shot away from 25 yards.

South Korean Son Heung-Min had got Spurs off and running with the first to equal former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe's record of scoring in five successive home matches.

The South Korea worldwide was involved again as Kane netted his first of the game two minutes after the restart.

But today belonged to Harry Kane who brought his goalscoring total in the Premier League this season to 20.

"He's fantastic. He deserves all the credit and a lot of praise - I congratulate him one more time", Pochettino said of Kane, who needs 15 goals in 15 games to finish as the top-scorer ever in a Premier League season.

It did not specify what any retaliation might involve. "The American administration has failed to undermine the nuclear deal". Two EU diplomats said EU foreign ministers would discuss next steps at their next regular meeting on January 22 in Brussels.

Pickford kept the score down two more stops to deny Son and Alli but he was powerless to prevent the fourth from going in with eight minutes to go. "With his mentality and his professionalism he can achieve all that he wishes".

Few would expect City to stumble in this season's contest for the Premier League title, given they are now 15 points clear at the top, yet Guardiola has warned it is still possible. "He is always looking to improve and that's what makes him special".

Kane then had a low strike beaten away by Jordan Pickford after Everton had given the ball away cheaply near their own penalty area.

Nothing, though, went the way of Everton manager Sam Allardyce, who ended up lambasting his side afterwards. "I'm so happy because for us it was a game that we must win, a massive three points for us today".

"It was a shock second-half performance".

He continually powered towards goal whenever he had possession, linking up superbly with Alli and Kane on numerous occasions.

Alan Pardew oversaw his first Premier League victory as West Bromwich Albion manager, thanks to a 2-0 win over Brighton, while Rafael Benitez's Newcastle came from behind to draw 1-1 with bottom-of-the-table Swansea City as the battle to avoid relegation intensified.
