Allardyce wants tiresome Everton to become more boring

Allardyce wants tiresome Everton to become more boring

The Toffees were the victims of their own downfall at times as they were dismantled by second half goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, with man of the match Heung-min Son opening the scoring in the first period.

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane celebrates scoring his side's third goal of the game during the English Premier League soccer match Tottenham Hotspur versus Everton at Wembley Stadium, London, Saturday Jan. 13, 2018.

The England global twice netted from close range- converting passes from Son Heung-min and Eric Dier- to take his Premier League tally to 98, one more than Teddy Sheringham scored for Spurs.

Serge Aurier, Kane, Son and Dele Alli were involved before Christian Eriksen drilled in from 16-yards to provide the cherry on top of a fine performance.

To hit 20 goals at this stage of the season in the premiership is incredible @HKane running out of words a complete goal machine.

However, the final 15 minutes of the half failed to provide any goal-mouth action as Spurs went into the break leading by one goal. [You have to] play your way back into the game and be professional about it.

Everton had the ball in the net first but Wayne Rooney was correctly ruled offside.

He spun on a dime in the 47th minute to leave his mark in the dust and smartly, if not inadvertently, whipped the ball into Kane's path, who was left with the easiest of tap ins.




The Tottenham striker scored eight goals in six matches, including back-to-back hat-tricks against Burnley and Southampton in a vintage month.

"It could have been a tough game but from the start we were really on it and deserved the win".

"I'm so happy because these points give us the belief and confidence to fight with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United for a place in the top four".

Kane - from an unorthodox, somewhat fortuitous finish, added his second, this time from a perfectly whipped in Eric Dier cross.

Kane continues to break record after record as he etches his name in the history books for his goal-scoring feats which has the world of football talking about his future in the game and if his playing days will always be with Spurs.

Spurs eased in to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon last weekend but their focus will be firmly on Premier League matters tomorrow.

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