  • Harry Kane becomes Tottenham's record Premier League goal scorer

Even with that caveat in mind, few teams in the world can keep up with Spurs when they're in the kind of effervescent mood we witnessed at Wembley today. Three times in as many minutes, Harry Kane forced saves out of Pickford with shots from the edge of the area.

Over recent years Spurs have moved quickly to tie their main stars down to long-term deals, with the majority of the Lilywhites squad committing to the North London club.

But Spurs, and once again Kane, now had the bit between their teeth as he took the clubs Premier League record for himself after arriving unmarked to meet Eric Dier's pinpoint centre with an untidy, but nonetheless equally effective finish.

Having hit eight hat-tricks in 2017 Kane was left looking for his first of 2018 in the final 20 minutes, but Spurs should have added a fourth from a different source when Son cut inside from the left flank only to drive his finish straight at Pickford, who also recovered to deny Alli from the follow-up.

Kane also became only the third player, after Thierry Henry (five seasons) and Alan Shearer (four), to score 20 Premier League goals in four successive seasons.

At this rate, Kane will also be targeting the most Premier League goals in one season which now stands at 31 for a 38 game season.

Tottenham took the lead four minutes later with Son tapping Serge Aurier's cross into the net.

- Son Heung-min became only the second player to score in five consecutive home Premier League matches for Spurs, after Jermain Defoe in 2004.

Boss, Sam Allardyce included new £27 million striker, Cenk Tosun, following his move from Turkish outfit, Besiktas.

The Turkish global made a number of positive runs against Tottenham in the first half and if his support was better, he might have capped his debut with a dream goal at Wembley.

However, if Allardyce can sort out the problems behind him, Tosun could have a bright future with the Toffees.

"Whenever other teams around are dropping points you've got to be there and to win", Kane said. "Luckily it went my way".

Cenk Tosun had a forgettable debut for Everton but if he is worth £27million - after scoring goals in Turkey - you have to wonder how much Son is worth.
