Sam Allardyce: Everton 'unprofessional' in 4-0 Spurs defeat

Share

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.

Such is the difference between the best and the rest in the Premier League this season, that ninth placed Everton are three points closer to Swansea in last position, than they are to Tottenham in fifth. "They were so clinical".

Doucoure turned the ball in with his hand as he stooped for a header but, with no video assistant referees in the Premier League, the goal stood and denied Southampton a first league win in 10 games. That is our challenge, our objective.

Saturday's late kick-off saw Tottenham forward Kane score his 98th Premier League goal and surpass Teddy Sheringham's previous club record of 97 with his double against Everton at Wembley.

Kane is also only the third player to score at least 20 goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns after Thierry Henry (five) and Alan Shearer (four).

He continued: "There are a lot of numbers, but he can do everything because of his mentality and how he is - he is so professional. He can achieve all he wishes and he wants", Pochettino told reporters.

"It's down to hard work". No other player does more than him. "In his mind, he always tries to help and play for the team". "His effort is for the team".

Both of Kane's strikes came in the second half, with the first coming when he got a toe on Son Heung-min's cross-cum-shot in the 47th minute.

"It was a completely undisciplined performance after the second goal went in, which hugely surprised me", said the former England boss.

"I think Tottenham is a club that in three and a half years I've seen a minimum of 100 names linked and in the end we sign a few".

"All that we showed today is to show in every week and every game that we play, that's the challenge and our objective and you know that it's tough to keep this type of level over a long period". It's fantastic. This season he's doing so, so well. He's very important player for us.

In the lead up to this match, I pointed out the importance of players like Son, Alli and Eriksen lessening Kane's goal-scoring burden.

But equally, that means Son will not be going anywhere - and the next thing Tottenham need to do is give him a whacking new contract. I congratulate him, he deserves the credit.
