Harry Kane breaks another record as Spurs thrash Everton

From ESPN - January 13, 2018

Harry Kane struck twice to become Tottenham Hotspur's all-time leading Premier League scorer as they beat Everton 4-0 at Wembley.

England striker Kane took his Spurs total in the competition to 98, leaving him one clear of White Hart Lane legend Teddy Sheringham.

After a bright opening spell had produced little in the way of clear chances, Spurs came close to the breakthrough when Christian Eriksen whipped in a free kick which Son Heung-Min headed over.

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.

But with 26 minutes gone, Son timed everything right when Serge Aurier's scuffed shot fizzed across the box and he steered the ball home from close range.

Everton tried to find a way back into the match and, with five minutes remaining until the break, Tosun got down the left but produced a disappointing cutback with colleagues well placed.

Shortly before half time, visiting defender Phil Jagielka was booked for a lunge on Dele Alli but Eriksen slammed the resulting free kick over the top.
