Ottenham put a desolate Everton side to the sword in a resounding 5-0 win on Monday night.

Despite the team’s promising start away from home, Spurs took a two-goal lead in the opening twenty minutes after Michael Keane crossed his own net after good work from Ryan Sessengon before Heung-min Son failed. shoots past Joran Pickford.

Harry Kane, who equaled Thierry Henry’s tally of 175 Premier League goals, put the game past Everton before the break when he found himself behind a soft backline before finishing coldly.

Less than a minute after the break, Sergio Reguilon added a fourth by hitting his first touch after replacing Sessengon.

Eric Dier then hit the bar with a header seconds before Kane got his second with a great volley.

More alarmingly for Everton, Tottenham weren’t at their best. As clinical as Kane was, better decision-making from Son and the excellent Matt Doherty would have only added to the score.

Antonio Conte said after the Leeds win that there were signs his system and reliance on full-backs was starting to work and that Doherty’s rapid improvement would certainly go hand in hand with that.

At times, the Republic of Ireland international was Spurs’ main playmaker, allowing Kane to play closer to Son.

If Tottenham’s recent form is anything to see, Saturday’s trip to Manchester United will be an arduous one given the nature of their checkerboard results.
