Another brace from Harry Kane followed by a goal apiece from Son Heung-Min and Christian Eriksen gave Tottenham a well-deserved victory at the Wembley against Everton.

With the brace, the England international scored his 98th Premier League goal for the Lilywhites and in the process, surpassed Teddy Sheringham to become the club’s all-time top scorer in the Premier League. Also, the win took Tottenham to the 5th spot on the Premier League log, level on points with Liverpool, with the Reds yet to play their game.

Coming on the back of a 1-1 draw against West Ham United in the Premier League, Tottenham were always a step ahead of Everton; be it in the attack or in the defence. Cenk Tosun was making his debut for the Toffees, but the Germany-born Turkey international hardly got any clear goalscoring chances; such was Tottenham’s resilience. Ironically, Everton came close to breaking the deadlock after Wayne Rooney headed home from close range, but the assistant referee ruled it out for offside.

Tottenham responded in as early as the 26th minute when right-back Serge Aurier was put through on goal. The Ivory Coast international’s attempt found Son unmarked right in front of Everton’s goal and bang! Tottenham were a goal up after a deadly attack. The goal means that the South Korean international is now Tottenham’s second player to score in five consecutive home Premier League matches for Spurs, after Jermain Defoe in 2004.

Soon after the restart, Harry Kane added another, converting Son Heung-Min’s pass. The England international completed his brace with a simple tap-in some 12 minutes after his first and finally, Christian Eriksen hammered the final nail in Everton’s coffin from the edge of the penalty area.

“It was a massive performance. Fantastic. I am so pleased. Congratulations to our players because the effort was fantastic,” Pochettino was quoted by BBC.

“The three points are important because the top four is so tough. The performance was very good, the players showed great character. I don’t think we conceded a shot on target.

“Son is doing fantastic in the last two or three months – his belief and confidence is amazing.”

Talking numbers, this was Tottenham’s biggest marginal win over Everton since a 10-4 win in October 1958. Also, a win means that we are now unbeaten in six matches but still sit 5th on the log. Meanwhile, a great show was equally appreciated by the fans and this is how they reacted on Twitter:

Tottenham interested in signing 22-year-old Serie A ace as possible replacement for Toby Alderweireld

Joachim Andersen

Joachim Andersen (C)

Premium Sport (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Tottenham have found a Toby Alderweireld replacement in Joachim Andersen.

The 22-year-old Sampdoria defender has eight Serie A appearances this season and has helped the side to fifth place in the table.

The report claims that Alderweireld has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Manchester United. The Dane joined the Serie A side from FC Twente last season for a fee of €4million (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in the 22-year-old, and the Milan club has a history of signing players from Sampdoria.

Milan Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has become one of the best defenders in the league. The report further claims that Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero wants at least €30million for the defender.

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham have a problem with Alderweireld as the report claims his contract is up in 2019 and could leave for free if terms are not agreed on a new deal.

The Belgian is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and losing him would be a big blow. Spurs have a great partnership between Jan Vertonghen and Alderweireld and we must look to keep the pair for as long as possible.

Andersen could be a decent option for Spurs should we sign him on the cheap. Tottenham have Davinson Sanchez as the other defender fighting for a starting spot in the heart of the defence currently and Andersen would be a good choice.

“No, of course not” – Young Tottenham star ready to play for England U21 despite featuring for senior side

Harry Winks of Tottenham

Harry Winks is ready to play for the England U21 side and follow the footsteps of Harry Kane. The U21 side have qualified for the Euros and the midfielder was asked if he had any issues playing for the U21s.

The Englishman was quoted by the Evening Standard as saying:

“No, of course not.

“The more games I play the better. I have missed a lot of football with my ankle injury and I’ve had a lot of problems with it still to this day.

“I have to manage it at times, but playing for your country is an honour, regardless of the level; under 21s, under 19s, under 18s, under 17s.

Harry Winks

Kane played for the U21s in the 2015 European Championship despite playing for the senior side a couple of months earlier, as per the report.

The Tottenham midfielder played the entire 90 minutes for the Three Lions in their 3-2 win over Spain and put up a good performance.

The 21-year-old had an injury-plagued 2017/18 season but seems to have put those concerns behind him in the current campaign.

Winks has a couple of Premier League starts to his name and should have a big role to play as we look to win silverware under Mauricio Pochettino. He is such a great talent and we’d benefit a lot if he fulfills his potential at Tottenham.

Tottenham interested in January move for £15m West Brom attacker

Oliver Burke

Tottenham are interested in West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke, according to the Sun (h/t Express). The Scot has a goal from two Carabao Cup appearances for the Baggies this season but hasn’t made a start in the Championship.

The report adds that Tottenham and Newcastle scouts watched the 21-year-old against Blackpool last week. The 21-year-old was a rising star for Nottingham Forest and joined RB Leipzig in the 2016/17 season.

However, the youngster was brought back to the English game, with West Brom signing the player for £15m (h/t Express) at the start of last season.

Burke failed to make an impression for the Baggies as they were relegated from the Premier League. The youngster failed to score a goal for the team, and the report adds that the player will not come on the cheap.

Tottenham did not sign a single player in the summer, and it will be interesting to see how we deal with the January transfer window.

Burke hasn’t been great in the past two years but working under Mauricio Pochettino could be the right move for the youngster.
