Son Heung-Min scores one, creates one as Spurs lead Everton

Son Heung-Min scores one, creates one as Spurs lead Everton

Tottenham did not take their foot off the gas and, after a double save from Pickford denied Son and Alli, the latter's backheel set up Eriksen to fire in a fourth on a night that firmly belonged to Kane and further demonstrated the gap in quality between the two sides.

This was Son's 40 goal in 117 appearances for Spurs which is outstanding.

It was the third successive game in all competitions that Chelsea failed to score, with striker Alvaro Morata looking frustrated and short of confidence.

It's his fourth season in a row netting 20 or more goals in the league. At least £60m, surely.

The Toffees are without a win in four and have suffered defeats in their last two league games as they head to Wembley.

This season has already seen Kane break 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. Replays suggested the England man was in an offside position when the pass came to him.

It was actually six home games as Son scored against Apoel Nicosia before finding the net against Stoke, Brighton, Southampton and West Ham and then, the Allardyce's sorry lot.

The opening goal came from a different source.

Eriksen is a virtual ever-present in the Tottenham starting XI and his link-up play with Kane is essential for the club in the final third.

Speaking after the victory, Kane jokingly said he thought he may have been offside on his first goal. Of Kane's 32 goals this season, it was surely the easiest.

Tottenham: Hugo Lloris 6 (out of 10), Serge Aurier 7, Davinson Sanchez 7, Jan Vertonghen 7, Ben Davies 7, Eric Dier 6, Mousa Dembele 7, Son Heung-min 9, Christian Eriksen 8, Dele Alli 7, Harry Kane 9. Although it was off target, it was turned in expertly by Son. RIP JonJoe Kenny, he will be remembered.

Son and Kane were clearly in the mood to achieve exactly that.

Former Spurs winger Aaron Lennon enjoyed an outstanding reception from the home crowd when replacing Yannick Bolasie.

Son followed that assist with a drive that hit the post flush from 18 yards out.

In doing so, Son joined Jermain Defoe as the only Tottenham player to score a goal in five consecutive home matches.

Tosun was put out of his misery just after the hour and was replaced by Dominc Calvert-Lewin yet this was an extremely unsatisfactory match for Allardyce. A real threat who often misses out on the plaudits that Kane, Eriksen and Alli get.

Yet the England global Alli delivered the brilliant flick and the Danish worldwide finished calmly.

Tottenham's push towards the top four in England's top flight is the biggest thing on the minds of Spurs and its faithful, but there was another accomplishment on Saturday that also garnered plenty of attention.
