Tottenham made short work of Everton at Wembley on Saturday evening and yet again Harry Kane will hog the headlines. The Spurs striker smashed Teddy Sheringham’s goalscoring record for the club, moving on to 98 with a brace. His two goals today won’t go down as his finest, but they all count.
Most importantly of all, Kane’s goals helped Tottenham take all 3 points. They are now level on points with Liverpool and they face runaway leaders Man City on Sunday. The race for the top 4 is hotting up, and Spurs need Harry Kane firing on all cylinders if they want to make it.
Kane Just Keeps On Scoring
Not content with breaking Alan Shearer’s 22 year old record for goals scored in a calendar year, Harry Kane passed another milestone on Saturday.
His two goals against Everton made him Tottenham’s record Premier League scorer with 98 goals. He still has a fair way to go to match Jimmy Greaves’ total of 266, but at just 24 years old he has time on his side.
Mauricio Pochettino was understandably delighted with Kane’s contribution. After the match he said: “Harry is such a talented player, so professional and I am very happy.”
“He deserves all the credit and a lot of praise. In this way he will break all the records in the Premier League. The good thing is Jimmy Greaves’ record is far so not every week he is going to break something.”
Although Kane will dominate the headlines in the Sunday papers, Heung Min Son deserves plenty of praise too. The South Korean star created his own little bit of history by scoring for the fifth home game in a row.
Son also provided the assist for Kane’s first goal, and he was heavily involved in a lot of Tottenham’s best attacking play. Although Son may not get the credit he deserves from the press, his manager appreciates what he does for Spurs. He is a key man for them now and one of the first names on the team sheet every week.
