Tottenham striker, Harry Kane scored twice in a 4-0 victory over Everton at Wembley on Saturday to become the club’s record Premier League goalscorer.

The England international 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 Spurs.

It was Son who opened the scoring in the 26th minute by finishing off Serge Aurier’s cross, before Kane set off the second half with his brace.

Spurs ​are now on 44 points but remain fifth on the table, while Everton, 27 points, sit on 9th spot.​
