Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes the Premier League single-season scoring record of 34 goals is under threat from Harry Kane after the striker grabbed two more in a 4-0 victory over Everton at Wembley.
Harry Kane scored his way to another record. But it is true that for me, he deserves the credit that is that is present and how he is doing is [because of] him.
Midfielder Son earlier scored in his fifth straight league game to put the hosts ahead 1-0 in the 26th minute, darting in to tap home Serge Aurier's smashed cross after Christian Eriksen found the right back with a floated pass.
"These boys are great, they set me up and we've got to keep going and winning games". But the Scot has proved all the doubters wrong with the London side scoring 12 goals from his past five league games in charge.
"After having a wonderful start, we are back on unsafe ground with our results and it's our responsibility to get results, not wait to see if other teams have lost".
"It was a fantastic performance", said Pochettino. "It could have been a tough game but from the start we were really on it and deserved the win".
"I don't think money guarantees you the title but, when you talk about the strength of a squad, it definitely helps".
Senator Tina Smith Visits the Northland
With a GOP majority across Washington she says she realizes it will be hard to accomplish certain things. Saturday, Smith will also be making a number of appearances in the area, including on the Iron Range.
Everton were denied the opening goal by the offside flag on 21 minutes as Cenk Tosun's header from a Sigurdsson corner was nodded over Lloris by Rooney, but he was marginally offside.
Tottenham has no such problems with Kane.
- Everton failed to record a shot on target for the fourth time in a Premier League match this season - no side has failed to do so in more games (Swansea also 4).
Speaking to BT Sport afterwards, Spurs boss Pochettino said: "He's so talented, so professional, I am very happy".
Desperately in need of some inspiration, Everton pushed Rooney further forward to play alongside Tosun and on 57 minutes, replaced Bolasie with Aaron Lennon.
"Too many of our players just decided not to defend anymore when Tottenham had the ball".
"I've seen it now, it was probably what was apparent before I got here and I've got to cut it out, starting tomorrow".
"West Brom becomes a massive game next week so we don't get dragged back into that relegation zone".
