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.

In this way he will break all the records in the Premier League.

Kane's double in the 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley took his tally to 98 goals in the EPL, going one past Teddy Sheringham's previous record.

They added a fourth goal with nine minutes remaining when Christian Eriksen rounded off an excellent attacking move from the London club.

Fifth-place Spurs moved level on points with Liverpool, whose game in hand is against Manchester City at Anfield.

Everything Kane touches turns into gold, which his 98th, and record-setting Premier League goal, was evident of.

Allardyce had instructed his team to maintain a disciplined structure and there was little to concern the visitors during the first 20 minutes, other than the moment when Son skimmed the top of the net with a glancing header.

It was not necessarily an awesome performance from Kane, but to grab two goals despite not performing at his best shows just how clinical and important the Spurs talisman is. [You have to] play your way back into the game and be professional about it.

There was a touch of good fortune about his first, which put Tottenham 2-0 ahead, as he looked in an offside position when he converted Son's pass, but the goal was given. He was clearly the best Tottenham player on the pitch and finished the game with one goal and assist to his name.

The 24-year-old is creating history on a weekly basis this term, recently earning the tag as top scorer in a single calendar year in the Premier League en route to outscoring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.

However, it did not take long for Tottenham to change that statistic and, on 47 minutes, Kane tapped home after smart work by Son on the left. "It went my way so I'm happy".

Eric Dier advanced down the right, nobody bothered to confront him and Everton's defence stood still as the midfielder's low cross reached Kane, who has not made a habit of missing from six yards out.

"I never see this type of mistake in the Premier League before", said Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

- Everton failed to record a shot on target for the fourth time in a Premier League match this season - no side has failed to do so in more games (Swansea also 4).
