Allardyce: My players gave up

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not keen to sell players

Goals from Son Heung-min, Christian Eriksen and a brace from Harry Kane - which saw him become Spurs' all time Premier League leading goalscorer - succumbed the Toffees to a defeat which saw them worryingly unable to record a shot on target.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce took the blame for his side's 4-0 thrashing at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, suggesting that he should have set up the team to be more "boring" rather than trying to outgun Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The latest record comes after a stellar year in 2017 for Kane. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don't.

Victory left Spurs level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, who face runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City today, in a competitive race for a place in next season's Champions League.

"After having a wonderful start, we are back on unsafe ground with our results and it's our responsibility to get results, not wait to see if other teams have lost". Manager Mauricio Pochettino selected a strong line-up: Lloris (c), Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Son and Kane.

The South Korea global was involved again as Kane netted his first of the game two minutes after the restart. "I tried to help my teammates and tried to show performance for the fans". Congratulations to him, he deserves all the credit and the praise.

Everton had the ball in the back of the net after 21 minutes but Wayne Rooney's strike was flagged offside.

Spurs needed less than two minutes of the second half to double their lead as Son turned Kenny inside out to get away and gain the left hand side of the box and his cross was tucked home by Kane although looking suspiciously offside in doing so...

In-form Tottenham are unbeaten in ten Premier League matches at Wembley Stadium ahead of this evening's clash with an out-of-sorts Everton and Spurs could move into the top-four with victory on "home" soil.

"I'm hugely disappointed in the professionalism of my players today, that's really out of order that you relinquish that responsibility just because you've gone 2-0 down one minute into the second half".

"Too many of our players just decided not to defend anymore when Tottenham had the ball".

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. However, Watford striker Troy Deeney admitted that had the VAR system been in operation "we probably wouldn't have got it".
