The Tottenham striker broke Teddy Sheringham's record of 97 goals in the Premier League, making him the club's all-time scorer in the top-flight.

Kane equalled Sheringham's record with the second goal and outclassed it just twelve minutes later with a close-range effort against Jordan Pickford to add the third for Tottenham.

He scored two more goals this evening against Everton at Wembley to secure a 4-0 win for Spurs.

According to BBC, Christian Eriksen smashed in a fourth from the edge of the penalty area late on after a fine backheel from Dele Alli.

Kane now has 98 league goals for the club after hitting his 19th and 20th of the current campaign and Pochettino was full of praise for the England worldwide.

Tottenham Hotspur are now placed fifth in the league, 3 points behind the nearest Champions League spot now occupied by Liverpool.

Spurs are in a firm three-way battle for one place in next season's Champions League and a heavy win today could see them go fourth ahead of Liverpool's clash with Manchester City. The goal was rightfully ruled out for offside.

Cenk Tosun made his Everton debut in one of six changes as Gylfi Sigurdsson, James McCarthy, Idrissa Gueye, Jonjoe Kenny and Phil Jagielka also came into the side.

Speaking to BT Sport afterwards, Spurs boss Pochettino said: "He's so talented, so professional, I am very happy". Sure. For me his quality, mentality and professionalism is top.

Allardyce had instructed his team to maintain a disciplined structure and there was little to concern the visitors during the first 20 minutes, other than the moment when Son skimmed the top of the net with a glancing header. "I think we have to try (VAR)".

Video assistant referees were used for the first time in domestic English football this week but because they still aren't deployed in the Premier League, Doucoure's goal was allowed to stand.

"I thought we had cut that out, so for me it is about making the players understand that it has happened once, in the second half - it can not happen again".

"Maybe I have a bit of responsibility by playing too much attacking-minded players and not as many defending-minded players". I saw some good signs of the players last week against Liverpool and I saw some of the worst signs in the second half today which is massively worrying.

Saturday's final game sees Tottenham host Everton in a game that both teams desperately need to win.
