Unfortunately for Cenk Tosun, his first taste of English football will be remembered for all the wrong reasons from Everton’s perspective. The Turkish striker certainly did not disgrace himself on his debut and his performance was the only bright spot for Sam Allardyce. Yet there was little that Tosun could do about another hopeless away performance from Everton, who collapsed in the second half, and it was not his fault that he was reduced to playing second fiddle to Harry Kane.
Having ended 2017 as Europe’s most potent striker, Kane shattered yet another statistic here, scoring twice to break Teddy Sheringham’s record of 97 Premier League goals for Tottenham. Kane has a long way to go to surpass Jimmy Greaves as the club’s all-time leading scorer with 266 goals but his double here took his tally against Everton to four this season, helping his team move level with Liverpool in fourth place and combining brilliantly with the waspish Son Heung-min.
