Mauricio Pochettino backs Harry Kane to break Premier League season goals record

"We were okay first half and looked comfortable but the second goal went in, if it's offside then that's obviously a killer", he told BT Sport.

"I reverted back to our Liverpool performance and thought if the team can play like that. surely you can come to Tottenham and deliver the same performance and maybe get a result".

Chelsea did little to take the spotlight away from manager Antonio Conte, linked with a post-season move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain this week, in a goalless draw with Leicester City on Saturday (Jan 13).

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted with the performance of Heung-min Son for their 4-0 win over Everton. "Everyone else, they may move on, but it's so important that they keep them".

The 26-year-old scored 64 goals in 142 games for the Turkish giants, including 24 goals last season, as they went onto win the title.

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

"I don't think money guarantees you the title but, when you talk about the strength of a squad, it definitely helps".

The Turkey global striker signed for the Merseysiders for £27million from Besiktas on Friday after scoring an impressive 14 goals in just 24 games in all competitions this term.

"I think a lot of our players were exhausted", Conte added before downplaying the extent of Cahill's injury by saying "I do not think it was serious".

However, it is worthy of note that all these areas that Iranians are complaining about are outside the scope of the nuclear deal. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has criticized President Trump , saying the nuclear deal is not renegotiable.

Everton had the ball in the net eight minutes later, but it was ruled out for offside. In this way, he will break all the records in the Premier League.

Tottenham has no such problems with Kane.

"Harry Kane is such a talented player, so professional and I am very happy".

"When I say that, I mean you have to make sure you defend even better against a Tottenham side 2-0 up and not relinquish that defensive responsibility".

Desperately in need of some inspiration, Everton pushed Rooney further forward to play alongside Tosun and on 57 minutes, replaced Bolasie with Aaron Lennon.

"With players like (Gylfi) Sigurdsson and (Wayne) Rooney around him with that class and quality, if he can just get that ball tighter together they can start creating some things".

"We can do nothing now", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino diplomatically. "Last week we were very unlucky to get beaten at Liverpool in the last five minutes and this week we got thrashed in the second half".

"Tottenham can beat anybody by a lot of goals but they should have had to work harder than they did".
