Tottenham Hotspur defeated a lacklustre Everton side who just didn’t look up for the fight – Spurs winning 3-0 on the day at Goodison Park.
Harry Kane once again being the man of the moment, as he grabbed his 100th goal for the club, Kane got two on the day with Christian Eriksen also getting his name on the score sheet. The result is only the second time Spurs have beat Everton in the 18 meetings between the two sides, taking them up to fifth in the table, while Everton languish ten places below that.
While Kane once again didn’t score in the month of August, he got his goal scoring boots on first for England in the international break, scoring twice again Malta. His first club goal this season came in this game on the 28th minute. In what can only be described as a cross come shot, his effort arced over Everton keeper Jordan Pickford’s head to give Spurs a well-deserved lead. It took Kane 169 games to score 100 goals for Spurs; 12 games fewer than Thierry Henry to score 100 for Arsenal (181).
Having scored twice for England in Malta during the international break, Kane opened his club account for the season with a 28th-minute cross-shot to complete his century.
Christian Eriksen added a second three minutes before the break to make him the joint-highest scoring Dane in Premier League history with 32 goals Nicklas Bendtner being the other. Erikson tapped home after Pickford’s less than impressive palm away from a low Ben Davies cross. From there on in, Tottenham were always going to win.
The local hero Kane then added his second and Spurs third when he turned in a Ben Davies cross to give the away side a comfortable victory.
Before both sides can get back to league action, they are both playing in European competitions. Tottenham host Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday, while Everton are at Italian side Atalanta on Thursday in the Europa League.
