Kane breaks Spurs' goal scoring record

They have won only 12 of their 22 games this season, winning 5 and drawing 5 and are now coming off a comfortable 3-0 victory against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup.

If opposing defences are as accommodating as Everton's, the odds on Kane smashing it must be low.

Considering it took Kane until his seventh league game the following campaign to open his account, I like many others must admit, I thought he was a one season wonder. He fights across the pitch for the right to play. "He can do everything because of his mentality and how he is", he said afterwards. He is always thinking and trying to improve, improve and improve.

Spurs restricted finances means that teams like Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea will keep gaining a gap on Tottenham because they will spend millions on and offer big salaries, to top players, whereas Spurs won't. "This is our challenge".

"It's impossible to beat this guy because he's one of the best strikers and one of the best players but he works really hard". Eriksen's cross-field pass found Serge Aurier with space to attack.

Micheal Keane and Martin Stekelenburg are both doubts for Saturday's trip to Wembley.

Meanwhile, a source has told ESPN FC that Spurs are interested in signing Stevenage Borough centre-back Ben Wilmot, 18, who would join the club's academy.

Mets, Adrian Gonzalez agree to deal
Gonzalez gives the Mets a veteran presence at first base, where Lucas Duda and Dominic Smith mainly patrolled last season. He was then traded to the Red Sox and spent two years in Boston before he was traded to Los Angeles in 2012.

PyeongChang Winter Olympics medals
The medal target range announced on Tuesday was four to 10, with an expectation at least five would be delivered in Pyeongchang. UK Sport director of performance Chelsea Warr said: "One of the unique aspects of winter sport is its unpredictability".

The Toffees gave a decent account of themselves in the first half and created enough to go into the break level after Son Heung-min's opener in the 26th minute gave Spurs the lead. Clearly relishing his full-time role this season, Son pirouetted his way past Mason Holgate on the halfway line before driving forward and laying the ball perfectly beyond Pickford's reach and into Kane's path. The South Korean has forced his way from being a supersub into a nailed-on first team starter - and his confidence is plain to see.

Deeney was involved in the controversial equalizer, heading the ball across the six-yard box where Doucoure arrived late to get in front of goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and push it into the net.

"But for Jordan Pickford they would have had more today and I'm hugely disappointed in the professionalism of my players today", he said.

It was one-way traffic and the pick of a good bunch came on 80 minutes via Eriksen.

The home sides managed to round off the scoring in the 81st minute as Dele Alli's delightful flick teed up Eriksen, who calmly slotted into the bottom corner. Their four goals brought their goal difference up to +25 - the exact same as Liverpool's.

Pochettino can, therefore, be confident his side will be in the top four come Sunday night.

Subs used: Lennon (5), Calvert-Lewin (5), Schneiderlin (5).
