Sam Allardyce's honeymoon period at the Blues is truly over.

Judging by the gulf class in this game, that run may go on for a while yet, with Tottenham now level on points with Everton's fourth-placed local rivals Liverpool.

Kane owed his first goal against Everton to Son Heung-Min's sublime turn and cross, and the England forward hailed the South Korean, who opened the scoring with a goal for the fifth game running.

Tottenham Hotspur strolled past Everton on Saturday evening with a 4-0 victory at Wembley Stadium and fans were delighted with the performance of one of their stars on social media.

Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are still out with hamstring and knee injuries respectively while Harry Winks had an injection on Monday to ease an ankle problem, but remains unavailable.

Mauricio Pochettino's men are in need of all three points as they look to keep pace in the race for the top four while Sam Allardyce's side can not afford to get complacent at the other end of the league despite a positive recent run of form.

Craig Pawson will be the man in charge at Wembley, with Lee Betts and Daniel Cook patrolling the flanks as his linesmen.

Tottenham Hotspur are are unbeaten in their last 10 matches against Everton in all competitions.

Video assistant referees were used for the first time in domestic English soccer this week but because they still aren't deployed in the Premier League, Doucoure's goal was allowed to stand.

In this way he will break all the records in the Premier League. The last person who did that was current Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe, who did so between November and December 2004.

Everton now sit ninth in the division but they have been woeful away from home having taken just 8 points from a possible 27 on the road so far this campaign.

What should I be betting on?


We are blessed to be watching Harry Kane in this form.
