Son Heung-min opened the scoring in the first half of Spurs' 4-0 win over Everton when he steered Serge Aurier's mis-hit shot into the net, before two second-half goals from Kane and another from Christian Eriksen secured the points.

Mauricio Pochettino believes Harry Kane can break the number of Premier League goals scored in one season following his second-half brace in Tottenham's 4-0 dismantling of Everton on Saturday.

He took the ball around Jonjoe Kenny before bursting down the left-hand side, with his cross into the box tapped home by a waiting Kane as he equalled Sheringham's record.

"I can't excuse our capitulation after we went 2-0 down".

- Son Heung-min became only the second player to score in five consecutive home Premier League matches for Spurs, after Jermain Defoe in 2004.

"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. I try to keep my goals a bit shorter than that month by month I'll set a target, but who knows what will happen".

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.

"Whenever other teams around are dropping points you've got to be there and to win", Kane said.

Zach LaVine scores his first points in Chicago
The fourth-year guard followed with an easy 15-footer at the 8:12 mark in the first quarter to give Chicago an early 12-11 lead. The Bulls in a thrilling finish survived a Reggie Bullock drive at the basket after a turnover that would have tied the game.

"The disappointing thing for us is, what would the game have finished like had we scored the first goal when Wayne's got disallowed?"

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

Asked if Kane could break the record with 15 games still to play, Pochettino said: "He can do everything because of his mentality and how he is as a professional".

Everton were denied the opening goal by the offside flag on 21 minutes as Cenk Tosun's header from a Sigurdsson corner was nodded over Lloris by Rooney, but he was marginally offside. While manager Sam Allardyce was left to rue the fact the same verdict was not given against Kane as he put Tottenham 2-0 up, he pulled no punches in his assessment of what came next.

"I think we played with a lot of top players against Arsenal (in the goalless League Cup semi-final first leg), and then again today against a very good team", Conte, who has been rumoured for a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, told the BBC.

Elsewhere, there were more controversial refereeing decisions as English football continued to debate whether the video assistant referee (VAR) system, which was tested in some cup games last week, would benefit the Premier League.

Too many of our players just decided not to defend anymore when Tottenham had the ball, and when you do that, with the quality of these players, they will cut straight through you.
