Pochettino eyes new record for goal-machine Kane

14 January 2018

"I think I am ready [to assume the responsibility of scoring goals for Everton]".

"I might have been offside [for his first] but sometimes you get them sometimes you don't". If you can play like that at Liverpool and just at the death get beat, surely you can come here to Tottenham and deliver the same performance and maybe get a result.

While Sam Allardyce did his utmost, through mind-numbingly tiresome defensive tactics, to stifle and frustrate Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino's men were up to the test. Totenham's fist good chance fell in the 15th minute to Son, whose flicked header from a Christian Eriksen free kick delivery skimmed inches over the crossbar.

Allardyce suggested after the match that lessons had not been learnt from Everton's 2-1 FA Cup defeat by Liverpool last week, a game that was settled by Virgil van Dijk's late header. "It could have been a tough game but from the start we were really on it and deserved the win". "Hopefully I'll keep scoring". "This way, he's going to break all the records in the Premier League and in England", Pochettino said. "I tried to help my teammates and tried to show performance for the fans".

"I think a lot of our players were exhausted", Conte added before downplaying the extent of Cahill's injury by saying "I do not think it was serious". He deserves all the credit and the praise.

Rooney had the ball in the back of the net six minutes later when he headed home Cenk Tosun's flick at close range, but the offside flag cut short his celebrations. While manager Sam Allardyce was left to rue the fact the same verdict was not given against Kane as he put Tottenham 2-0 up, he pulled no punches in his assessment of what came next.

But Ben Chilwell received two yellow cards inside five minutes in the second half, giving his side a tough final 20 minutes. In that absurd move, the manager took two of his best players off the field when they needed a goal the most .

"Harry Kane is such a talented player, so professional and I am very happy", Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino told BT Sport.

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.

However, Andre Gray reduced the deficit before Abdoulaye Doucoure leveled matters in the 90th minute with a controversial goal, with replays showing the midfielder used his hand.

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

"I never see this type of mistake in the Premier League before", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino. However, Watford striker Troy Deeney admitted that had the VAR system been in operation "we probably wouldn't have got it".
