'I don't see Harry Kane leaving Spurs,' says Harry Redknapp

The first half between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton probably favored Spurs slightly, with the home side keeping much of the ball but not able to create a whole lot of chances initially.

Harry Kane struck a double to become Tottenham's all-time leading scorer in the Premier League as Everton were thumped 4-0 at Wembley.

Sam Allardyce admits signing Cenk Tosun "is a risk" as the Everton new boy prepares for his Premier League debut.

Kane is now on to 98, having punished Everton twice after half-time, with Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen also on target to put Mauricio Pochettino's men on course for a dominant 4-0 win.

"The service provided in the final third is one of our weaknesses, which is why we are not scoring enough goals".

Spurs are now in fifth spot in the league, just outside the Champions League spaces, and three points behind Liverpool in fourth.

With 22 minutes on the clock, the visitors thought they had taken the lead when new striker Cenk Tosun headed on a corner and Wayne Rooney pounced, only for him to be flagged for offside.

Son was not to be denied four minutes later when the South Korean was on hand to turn home Serge Aurier's cross.

Suddenly Tottenham looked unsafe every time they came forward, and they should have had a third five minutes later when Dele Alli exchanged passes with Son on his way into the box, only to fire his finish into the side-netting with only the keeper to beat.

Allardyce's side are now winless in their last five Premier League games and have lost their last three.

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

Kane then drew another save from Pickford before the influential Son came within a whisker of deservedly doubling his personal tally when he collected Kane's crossfield pass, cut inside past two defenders and then fired a low strike against the post with the keeper beaten.

With Harry Kane in town, this is an issue that Everton must address, or they run the risk of being embarrassed by the Tottenham forward.

Eriksen added the fourth with a sublime finish nine minutes from time.
