Harry Kane makes history in Tottenham Hotspur rout of Everton

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confessed that they are taking a "risk" by spending big on striker Cenk Tosun midway through the Premier League season.

Son was involved again as Alli had a chance to make it three with 53 minutes played but could only steer his attempted finish into the side netting. Other than a disallowed Wayne Rooney goal, who was clearly, albeit marginally offside, the Toffees couldn't muster anything threatening going forward against a spry Spurs unit.

Spurs opened the scoring in the 26th minute when Eriksen's attractive cross-field pass to Serge Aurier split the Everton defence in half.

Jermain Defoe picked up the Goal of the Month award for his effort during Bournemouth's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Last season the former Southampton man proved himself to be a key asset for Mauricio Pochettino's side and his return to full-fitness is a huge boost for Spurs. Dele Alli and Son played some wonderful passes between each other to set the England worldwide one on one with Pickford but he could only find the side netting.

Son was not to be denied four minutes later when the South Korean was on hand to turn home Serge Aurier's cross. This means he is scoring a goal in less than every three games - the benchmark for all top strikers. Alli spun a great cross in and Kane scuffed the ball off his studs to send it unconventionally over the Everton goalkeeper.

Even with that caveat in mind, few teams in the world can keep up with Spurs when they're in the kind of effervescent mood we witnessed at Wembley today. I've see it now and it probably was before I got here and I've got to cut it out, cut it out starting tomorrow.

The Turkish global made a number of positive runs against Tottenham in the first half and if his support was better, he might have capped his debut with a dream goal at Wembley. Kane played the ball out wide to Aurier, Aurier played it back inside to Son, Son flicked it around a defender to Alli, Alli majestically back-heeled it to Eriksen and the Dane added the cherry on top by nearly taking the goal net off with his finish.

The England global stole the headlines once again as Spurs drew level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, overtaking club legend Teddy Sheringham to stand out on his own as Tottenham's most prolific player of the Premier League era.
