EPL: Harry Kane becomes Tottenham's record Premier League goal scorer

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min wrote their names into Tottenham Hotspur's record books with a 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley Stadium.

Spurs responded as Kane tested Pickford with a first-time shot from Moussa Dembele's through-ball on 24 minutes, before they took the lead two minutes later.

England man Kane bagged two against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup last week to take his season's tally to an astonishing 30 goals in 31 appearances.

Christian Eriksen finished off a sweeping move on 81 minutes to round off a comfortable win.

Fifth-place Spurs moved level on points with Liverpool, whose game in hand is against Manchester City at Anfield.

Spurs fans were pleased with the performance their side put in and took to social media to provide their reaction to one of their attacking players.

Jimmy Greaves is Tottenham's record goalscorer in all competitions with 266 and Pochettino is pleased Kane has a long way to go before he breaks it.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's corner was flicked on by debutant Cenk Tosun, finding the head of Wayne Rooney, and although his glancing effort beat Hugo Lloris, the linesman already had his flag raised. [You have to] play your way back into the game and be professional about it.


Son was the architect as he went past Kenny to surge down the left flank before eluding Mason Holgate and crossing for Kane to net from close range on 47 minutes.

The only other people to have achieved such a feat are the Premier League's number one and five all time top scorers.

Kane now has 98 league goals for the club after hitting his 19th and 20th of the current campaign and Pochettino was full of praise for the England global.

However, Everton were managed by Ronald Koeman for that fixture and things have since improved under the guidance of Sam Allardyce, with the Toffees putting together an unbeaten run in his first seven games in charge. "I'm so happy, it's fantastic because he helps for the win".

Eric Dier advanced down the right, nobody bothered to confront him and Everton's defence stood still as the midfielder's low cross reached Kane, who has not made a habit of missing from six yards out.

It's his fourth season in a row netting 20 or more goals in the league.

Hopefully, I'll keep scoring, said a modest Harry Kane who looks poised to scale new landmarks in the coming year after starting 2018 on a brilliant note like the previous year.
