Kane double destroys sorry Everton as Tottenham wing-backs impress



T

ottenham put a sorry Everton side to the sword in a resounding 5-0 win on Monday evening.

Despite a promising start from the away team, Spurs raced into a two-goal lead in the opening twenty minutes after Michael Keane had put through his own net following good work from Ryan Sessengon before Heung-min Son fired past Joran Pickford.

Harry Kane, who equaled Thierry Henry’s Premier League goal haul of 175, put the game beyond Everton before the break when he found himself in-behind a meek backline before finishing coolly.

Less than a minute after the interval, Sergio Reguilon added a fourth by tapping in with his first touch after replacing Sessengon.

Eric Dier then hit the bar with a header just seconds before Kane got his second with a superb volley.

Most alarmingly for Everton, Tottenham weren’t at their best. As clinical as Kane was, better decision making from Son and the otherwise excellent Matt Doherty would have only added to the scoreline.

Antonio Conte said after the win at Leeds that there were signs his system and its reliance on wing-backs was starting to work and Doherty’s rapid-fire improvement would certainly along with that.

At times, the Republic of Ireland international was Spurs’ chief playmaker, allowing Kane to play closer to Son.

If Tottenham’s recent form is anything to by, Saturday’s trip to Manchester United will be arduous given the nature of their up-and-down results.
