Spurs 4 Everton 0

Harry Kane scored twice in a comfortable home victory over Everton to become Tottenham’s record Premier League goalscorer.

Kane twice netted from close range – converting passes from Son Heung-min and Eric Dier – to take his Premier League tally to 98, one more than Teddy Sheringham scored for the club. The excellent Son opened the scoring at Wembley by finishing off Serge Aurier’s cross, and the South Korea international later hit a post as the hosts dominated.

Christian Eriksen smashed in a fourth from the edge of the penalty area late on after a fine backheel from Dele Alli. When the game was goalless, Wayne Rooney thought he had put Everton ahead with a header but he was adjudged offside.

Tottenham, who are now unbeaten in six matches, remain fifth in the Premier League, but are level on points with Liverpool and 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

England striker Kane has now scored 20 times in the Premier League this season, three more than any other player, and has hit 28 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

There was a touch of good fortune about his first, which put Tottenham 2-0 ahead, as he looked in an offside position when he converted Son’s pass, but the goal was given.

That was his 97th Premier League goal – and his 98th came only 12 minutes later as he scuffed a shot into the net from Dier’s cross.

The 24-year-old is yet to win any trophies but has already secured his place in the club’s record books by overtaking Sheringham, whose goals came during two spells – from 1992-1997 and 2001-2003. Kane’s goals have come in only 135 games, while Sheringham took 237.

I’m Always Chasing Rainbows

Chopin

At the end of the rainbow there’s happiness
And to find it how often I’ve tried
But my life is a race just a wild goose chase
And my dreams have always been denied
Why have I always been a failure?
What can the reason be?
I wonder if the world’s to blame
I wonder if it could be me?

I’m always chasing rainbows
Watching clouds drifting by
My schemes are just like all my dreams
Ending in the sky
Some fellows look and find the sunshine
I always look and find the rain
Some fellows make a winning some time
I never even make a gain, believe me
I’m always chasing rainbows
Waiting to find a little bluebird in vain

I’ve looked to the west as the sun goes down
And I’ve followed its glorious rays
But the faster I’d run I would miss the sun
My life’s full of wasted days
I’ve always been a natural loser
Each thing I touch must fail
If good luck ever came to me it would never seem right at all
