Everton 2-6 Tottenham: Harry Kane equals Premier League record with double against Toffees
Harry Kane was Everton’s nemesis yet again with a double for the fourth successive match against the Toffees in Tottenham’s thrilling 6-2 victory at Goodison Park.
The England captain equalled a Premier League record by becoming only the second player after Michael Owen against Newcastle to score twice in four successive meetings against the same team.
Heung-min Son bagged a brace of his own, while Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen completed the scoring in what was a sensational attacking display from Spurs.
Kane missed a flurry of chances and, in truth, should have had more than just the two goals.
But he finally got on the scoresheet when Kieran Trippier’s free-kick hit the post and fell kindly for him to put his side 3-1 up before half-time.
And he completed the rout with a smart finish on the slide in the 74th minute.
The double puts him on 11 league goals for the season, level with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and one behind Premier League top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
It rounds off a wonderful day for Kane after reports emerged he will be awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours list.
According to The Sun, Kane’s efforts at the World Cup in Russia last summer are set to be recognised when the honours are officially unveiled next week.
