Kane to break all English goal records, says Pochettino

Spurs are just three points off the Champions League spots and will take confidence from their impressive 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park earlier in the season.

The England global stole the headlines once again as Spurs drew level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, overtaking club legend Teddy Sheringham to stand out on his own as Tottenham's most prolific player of the Premier League era.

Team news on the way from Wembley, but how might both sides line up this afternoon? The South Korean converted a simple chance from Serge Aurier and then created a similar chance for Kane to score two minutes into the second half, albeit from a suspiciously offside position, to effectively kill off Everton who were awful throughout.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino singled out Kane for praise and backed the 24-year-old to keep building on his achievements.

For much of the match, however, Kane had played second fiddle to Son Heung-min, who broke the deadlock after 26 minutes and set up Kane's first shortly after the interval.

Kane to break all English goal records, says Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to maintain their good run of form this evening when they take on Everton at home in the Premier League.

The goal was also Kane's 20th of the season, seeing him join an elite club of Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer as the only players in Premier League history to have hit that tally in four consecutive campaigns. But that's what Kane did in 2017.

But that arrived soon enough and in superbly stylish fashion as Serge Aurier, Son and Alli combined beautifully to open up the chance for Eriksen to smash home.

The north Londoners head in to the weekend action sitting fifth in the table - three points off fourth place - but can move level with Liverpool with a win over the Toffees ahead of their clash with Man City on Sunday.
