Koeman: 'Not realistic' for Everton FC to rival Spurs yet

Q&A with Tottenham’s Eric Dier

"Maybe different characteristics but I think he is in that level, with Batistuta, I would put Harry Kane in with Batistuta".

Saturday's performance was by some distance their least cohesive so far, losing their shape and goal after falling behind to a fluke Harry Kane cross-shot.

Shearer has also called on Harry Kane to lead the charge for Spurs as they look to put to bed what was a very poor outing in the Champions League last term when they finished third in a group containing Bayer Leverkusen, Monaco and CSKA Moscow.

But 101-goal Kane believes getting out of the group would prove Spurs belong among Europe's elite.

Spurs had a disappointing record before becoming tenants there and are yet to record a competitive win there this season, losing 2-1 against Chelsea before a stoppage-time Chris Wood goal earned Burnley a 1-1 draw prior to the global break.




Next up for Tottenham is a home game against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday night as they look to improve on their poor start to life at Wembley. Not easy to come and play in the Premier League.

The Toffees started the season with a win over Stoke and a fine draw with Manchester City, as well as progress to the Europa League group stages, but they now sit 16th in the Premier League table.

"I was startled to hear Koeman say his team were 'too nice" in the 3-0 defeat by Tottenham, ' Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the England global said: "People might not talk about us but that suits us. You've got to see where you are, and all the lads are looking forward to it", he added.

"We have got to go and perform". We have to prove that we are at that level. Lamela, who has not played since October a year ago, is now in "an advanced stage of his rehabilitation", according to his manager and is expected to return to full training next month.
