The win keeps Tottenham in fifth, level with Liverpool ahead of their match against leaders Manchester City on Sunday, and three points behind Chelsea after their 0-0 draw with Leicester. Son was there waiting to tap home, and continue his fine run of form in front of goal. "It could have been a tough game but from the start we were really on it and deserved the win".

Son could have added the third in the 58th minute, collecting a cross-field pass from Kane before cutting across the top of the box and striking, but his thunderous effort thrashed against the woodwork before going wide, although Kane made sure to net another Spurs goal a minute later.

This season has already seen Kane surpass Alan Shearer's mark for the most Premier League goals in a calendar year with 39, while also finishing 2017 with more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The home sides managed to round off the scoring in the 81st minute as Dele Alli's delightful flick teed up Eriksen, who calmly slotted into the bottom corner.

Tottenham won 4-0 in their most recent match against Everton, as Kane showed his worth once again.

Elsewhere, there were more controversial refereeing decisions as English football continued to debate whether the video assistant referee (VAR) system, which was tested in some cup games last week, would benefit the Premier League. He can achieve all he wishes and he wants.

Tosun was unable to guide his header on target in the 32nd minute after getting on the end of Jonjoe Kenny's cross from the right following good work by Yannick Bolasie initially.

Sam Allardyce admits he was shocked by Everton's "professionalism" in their defeat to Tottenham.

The Turkey worldwide striker signed for the Merseysiders for £27million from Besiktas on Friday after scoring an impressive 14 goals in just 24 games in all competitions this term.

A 4-0 reversal at Wembley saw the Blues' wait for a win stretch to six games in all competitions with a particularly disappointing showing in the second half.

When Spurs finally leave Wembley, they will not remember it too fondly but Son is certainly one player who will miss it. "It was massively worrying in terms of how can a performance become so bad in such a short period of time".

Abdoulaye Doucoure then scored a late equaliser with a goal that the away players seemed to feel involved a handball. Allardyce felt Kane's opening goal could also have been ruled out. After some lovely passing from Spurs the Dane smashed the ball beyond a helpless Jordan Pickford, having also produced a fine performance.
