The 24-year-old is creating history on a weekly basis this term, recently earning the tag as top scorer in a single calendar year in the Premier League en route to outscoring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.
A ship that Sam Allardyce had seemed to sail is sort of starting to sink again now.
But today belonged to Harry Kane who brought his goalscoring total in the Premier League this season to 20.
"When you go two goals down after half-time and basically relinquish all the gameplan, Tottenham will cut through you and punish you".
"It is unbelievable the way that he is able to work and his willingness". They currently sit in ninth place in the standings and have lost back-to-back meetings against Tottenham.
Spurs withdrew Dier for Wanyama three minutes later and Rooney was needlessly booked for an ankle tap of sheer frustration on Vertonghen.
That means Kane will not be leaving and Spurs will fend off bids for the likes of Alli, Eriksen, Danny Rosem Toby Alderweireld etc.
However, after the defeat of Everton, Pochettino joked he was glad Greaves' record is still out of reach.
The modest Kane, for his part, just shrugs as he ticks off another milestone. He deserves all the credit and the praise.
Allardyce went on to say that he felt he'd named too attacking a side for this game.
"We want to do something quite similar".
That result took a hefty slice of luck - and a screamer from Pedro Obiang. "I should have got back to being a bit more boring and a bit less adventurous". We have not seen the full-blown Yannick Bolasie, not by any stretch of the imagination. Newcastle at 10-11 to see off Swansea is a good bet. Allardyce felt Kane's opening goal could also have been ruled out.
"Harry is fantastic and I congratulate him one more time", said Pochettino after Kane equalled and then surpassed Teddy Sheringham's previous record of 97 Premier League goals for the north London club.
The Catalan coach was an admiring viewer of Tottenham's emphatic 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley on Saturday, which saw the hosts move level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool. "He's always thinking and trying to improve, improve, improve and score goals". You can see them over at SportsLine.
Tottenham Hotspur won 4-0 against Everton in the Premier League clash on Saturday.
Craig Dawson secured their first league win since August 19 in the 56th minute with a fine header.
"Hopefully we will get better in the near future".
How about at St James' Park?
A number of changes are expected to the side that started in their victory against Wimbledon earlier in the week.
"Whenever other teams around are dropping points you've got to be there and to win", Kane said. This time Son was the creator, demonstrating his skill and dribbling ability by twirling away from Jonjoe Kenny, rendering the inexperienced right-back an irrelevance as the move unfolded.
Frustrating performance, both from the manager and the players.
