Harry Kane rewrote the club record books once again on Saturday evening, scoring twice in our 4-0 defeat of Everton to become our all-time top goalscorer in the Premier League.
After Heung-Min Son had given us a first-half lead, the prolific England striker netted our second of the game to draw level with Teddy Sheringham on 97 goals in the competition, before breaking the record 11 minutes later in only his 135th Premier League appearance in our colours. The icing on the cake was a magnificent fourth goal from Christian Eriksen.
Kane’s achievement was the footnote to a fine team performance from front to back, as we dominated Sam Allardyce’s side in every area of the pitch, Hugo Lloris barely troubled throughout the 90 minutes as Everton failed to produce a shot on target.
Son got the ball rolling on 26 minutes, tucking home Serge Aurier’s low cross from close range, equalling Jermain Defoe’s Premier League record of scoring in five consecutive home games for us, before Kane doubled our lead two minutes into the second half, getting on the end of Son’s cross-shot to beat Jordan Pickford.
Son then hit the post before Kane’s record-breaking goal came on 58 minutes – by no means his finest in a Spurs shirt as he bobbled a close-range effort past the Everton goalkeeper, but it meant so much to him and everyone of a Spurs persuasion nevertheless!
A superb fourth rounded off the perfect evening, Eriksen applying the finishing touch to a move which involved Kane, Aurier, Son and Dele Alli to send our fans home very happy indeed.
