“Can we play every game away please?” – Fans React To Tottenham’s 3-0 Win Over Everton

Published

on

The month of August is behind us and Tottenham fans completely know what lies next. It’s Harry Kane’s time! Following their defeat at the hands of Chelsea and a 1-1 draw against Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur demolished an all confident Everton unit by three goals to nil at the Goodison Park.

Harry Kane finally opened his goal scoring account for the season with a fine performance, while Christian Eriksen got off the mark as well. The hosts, even after enjoying majority of the possession (51% to be specific), failed to spark anything positive. Tottenham were clinical on their part and didn’t sweat much in clinching their second victory of the season.

New signing Davinson Sánchez was handed his debut and was deployed as a central defender in Pochettino’s 3-4-2-1. The former Ajax defender never showed any signs of nervousness and gave a solid performance. The hosts started off brightly as Sandro Ramirez managed to pull off a shot, which only missed the target by a whisker. This remained the only highlight of the game for the Spaniard.

Christian Eriksen got a fantastic chance for breaking the deadlock after Ben Davies saw himself getting tons of space down the left. But the Denmark international missed the opportunity. Just a couple of minutes before half-time, Harry Kane broke the deadlock with a sublime finish. It was, although, quite debatable as to whether he actually directed his kick towards the goal or not. A goal is a goal, and Kane knows the importance of it as it was his 100th goal for the Lilywhites.

As the game approached half-time, Christian Eriksen added the second for his side. Ben Davies was yet again involved in the goal, one way or the other. The wing-back saw his point-blank effort get saved by Jordan Pickford but the former Sunderland man couldn’t prevent the follow-up. First goal for Eriksen!

Just a minute after the restart, Harry Kane put the result beyond any realm of doubt, after finishing the ball with sublime technique and that was all the game offered. Ronald Koeman accepted that his side literally failed to cope with Tottenham’s approach.

“We had problems coping with their diamond in midfield,” Koeman was quoted by the Guardian. “Because of the movement of Alli and Eriksen they were always able to easily find their free player.”

Having said that, Tottenham now sit fifth on the Premier League table after four games (W2 D1 L1).

Fans, on their part, were delighted with the result and here’s is how they reacted on Twitter:
