Harry Kane set his sights on reeling in Premier League leaders Chelsea after the Tottenham striker’s double inspired a 3-2 win against Everton on Sunday.
However it would be much more sensible to recognise Kane in the same class as the likes of Aguero in terms of the top strikers in the Premier League and he is fast becoming one of the best strikers Spurs have had in the last two decades, maybe even ever.
After being given time and space around 30 yards from goal, the Tottenham Hotspur striker fired a fierce shot past Joel Robles to put his team ahead with the game’s first effort on target. It’s not a test.
“We make history with this group, they are good players and it is only the start of good things in the future”, he told Sky Sports.
He added: “They hold a real threat, but I thought we dominated the game until the last 10 minutes where we got a bit shaky.
They [Spurs] try to bring young players through the team and I try to do that too”. Everton are obviously a risky side and usually turn up in big games so I’m expecting a closely fought match but in the end Tottenham should have too much for the Toffees.
“But overall I think he played on a really high level today and he showed again today that he is on a good direction as a football player for us”.
Kane has netted a PL goal every 106 minutes, compared to 129 for Lukaku and 126 for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.
As for Harry Kane, being the favourite for the second season running, he was able to lead the score charts with 17 goals alongside Romelu Lukaku.
Oliver has taken charge of three Tottenham games and booked just four Spurs players across those matches. Unbeaten in the Premier League since December 19th, Everton’s only loss since came in the FA Cup against Leicester City who beat Ronald Koeman’s side 2-1.
In fact, in scoring against Tottenham, the big Belgian became Everton’s all-time leading Premier League scorer. aged just 23.
But there was little of that against-the-odds mentality from Everton, who failed to lay a glove on Tottenham in a one-sided affair. He had spells on loan at West Bromwich Albion in 2012-13 (scoring 17 league goals) and then at Everton the following season (15), before completing a permanent club-record move to Goodison Park in 2014. “I’ll take the two but I’m slightly disappointed I didn’t get the match ball”, he conceded afterwards.
