Spurs boss Pochettino hails 2-goal Kane: He just keeps doing it

South Korean attacker Son Heung-min has bagged one goal and one assist in his latest performance for Tottenham Hotspur.
Spinning on a dime in the 47th minute to embarrass Jonjoe Kenny, Son intelligently zipped the ball into Kane's path, providing Spurs the springboard from which to launch.
Mauricio Pochettino's side are out of the Champions League places, and the club have a new 61,500-seat stadium to pay for, at a time when rivals with deeper pockets are eyeing some of their stars. 'Hopefully his ability and goalscoring ability will help us along the way, but we've got to get back to the basics defensively like I did when I first started'.
Spurs will be hoping to stay within touching distance of fourth-placed Liverpool FC in the hunt for a top-four spot. Allardyce felt Kane's opening goal could also have been ruled out. At least £60m, surely. They can cement that with a win at the home of the England senior team, who Allardyce managed for one game but never at Wembley.
Everton, which had a headed goal by Wayne Rooney disallowed when it was 0-0, hasn't won any of its last five games in the league.
Vlasic will play on the other side of the pitch as a part of the rotation.
He did not net off the bench against Swansea or over 90 minutes at home to West Ham so far this year.
Sumpter's model knows the huge x-factor that determines which side of Tottenham-Everton you need to be all over, and he's only sharing it over at SportsLine. You play your way back in and be professional about it.
With Spurs also only having been given a handful of chances with what was still a close contest as the half-time whistle blew, Everton went into the break with plenty of encouragement.
55' - Idrissa Gueye concedes possession in the centre circle and that allows Harry Kane to drive towards the Everton goal and get a shot away from 25 yards. Although it was off target, it was turned in expertly by Son. They certainly have the squad to do so, and in the kind of form both teams are in, it shouldn't be too hard for Tottenham to win this match with a convincing margin. 87' - Christian Eriksen is replaced by Erik Lamela for Spurs.
Yet it was Son causing the mayhem and he had another effort hit the woodwork. Son then assisted Kane with a superb cross which was convincingly converted by Kane who made an excellent run forward to put it past the opponent keeper.
