Mauricio Pochettino tips Harry Kane to break Premier League goalscoring record

Adjust Comment Print

Harry Kane produced yet another landmark display as his two goals in a 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley on Saturday saw him become Tottenham Hotspur's all-time leading scorer in the Premier League.

Son, who has had a hand in more goals at Wembley than any other Tottenham player this season with seven goals and four assists, was comfortably the best player on the pitch but it was Kane who assumed centre stage as his 98th top-flight goal arrived in the 59th minute. 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. 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.

Kane admitted he was proud of the award as he gets set to return to league action in Spurs' home clash with Everton this weekend.

Although the arrival of Turkish striker Cenk Tosun may yet revitalise Everton's as yet failed effort to replace Romelu Lukaku, Allardyce is keen to shift the blame as far from himself as possible.


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

The Englishman overtook Teddy Sheringham, who has 97 goals, on the way to scoring his 20th league goal of the season, for the fourth year in a row. A flowing move saw Dele Alli flick a reverse pass into Eriksen and the Dane thumped home. Sure. For me his quality, mentality and professionalism is top. Tottenham were relieved to see the flag go up as Rooney's header flew into the roof of the net and that scare woke them up.

Runaway league-leaders City underlined their Premier League dominance by hammering last season's runners-up 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium on December 16, to move 21 points clear of Pochettino's side.

"Harry can achieve all that he wishes to and all he wants to because it is unbelievable the way he is able to work and his willingness. He is always looking to improve and that's what makes him special".


However, Sam Allardyce has made the Merseysiders hard to beat again since taking over so he'll be hoping to continue his fine start to life at Everton with another positive result this weekend.

Everton had emerged early for the second half, but how quickly and brutally they were forced to revert to damage limitation.

If Tottenham had scored one more during the final nine minutes they would have gone ahead of Liverpool into fourth place.

Everton's reply was immediate and direct from a Jordan Pickford kick upfield.
