After a 5-0 demolition of Everton’s side, Tottenham has remained in the race to be in the top four in the English Premier League.
Spurs have been inconsistent over the last few weeks, but they showed their best when Michael Keane’s goal gave them an early lead. They ran wild after that. Harry Kane scored two goals, while Son Heung-min (and Sergio Reguilon) also scored.
Kane was again a masterclass in goalkeeping, his second goal being a highlight. He now has 14 goals in 15 matches against Everton.
This was as poor as the Toffees’ performance this season, and Frank Lampard has not shown any improvement with four losses in five league games.
They are only one point above 18th-placed Burnley so it is clear that they are in a relegation fight. However, they have a game in their hands.
Spurs won their first ever Premier League victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. They will be confident that they can qualify for the Champions League.
Antonio Conte’s team is still seventh in the table, but three points behind Arsenal. They are now in the race for Manchester United’s crunch visit next week.
Spurs have been unable to predict what they will get in the coming weeks, following a win over Manchester City with humiliating defeats at Middlesbrough and Burnley.
It was evident that this was going be a great night from the beginning as they quickly took control of the game.
They won in the 14th minute when Ryan Sessegnon was released down the left. His cross was then put through Keane’s own net, who had scored his second own goal in three appearances at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Kane found Dejan Kulusevski three minutes later. He was playing in Son. The South Korean flag was happy to see Jordan Pickford’s weak shot pass through his body.
Matt Doherty made a stunning pass to Kane on his first attempt. Kane raced through the goal and beat Pickford, England’s teammate, in the 37th.
Spurs continued to move forward despite the break. It was 4-0 just 41 seconds into the second period.
Son was passed to Kulusevski, and the Swede got a second assist by cutting back Reguilon. Reguilon scored his first touch after he had joined at halftime.
Spurs did not show mercy and Eric Dier’s shot against the crossbar was beaten by Kane moments later, Kane scoring the final goal of the evening.
Doherty played a fantastic ball over the top to pick Kane out, who scored a spectacular first-time volley in the bottom corner.
After beating Championship rival Huddersfield by 2-1 at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest will now host Liverpool in the FA Cup quarterfinals.
Forest won against Leicester and Arsenal in the previous round and advances to the FA Cup’s last eight. This is the first time the Cup has been played in 26 years. It will also be the first meeting between Liverpool and Forest since 1999. Liverpool visits Forest a week after the match.
