'Massively worrying' - Allardyce shocked by limp Everton display

The FA are investigating the clash between Holgate and Liverpool's Roberto Firmino

Paul Merson believes Tottenham Hotspur will edge to a 2-0 win against Everton at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

Kane also became Spurs' all-time leading scorer in the Premier League, with his brace taking up to 98 league goals.

Allardyce could hand an Everton debut to January signing Cenk Tosun after he joined the club from Besiktas.

Hardly for the first time, Heung-Min Son delivered yet another outstanding performance while keeping up a goal record which is none too shabby, either.

The England worldwide stole the headlines once again as Spurs drew level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, overtaking club legend Teddy Sheringham to stand out on his own as Tottenham's most prolific player of the Premier League era.

With 22 minutes on the clock, the visitors thought they had taken the lead when new striker Cenk Tosun headed on a corner and Wayne Rooney pounced, only for him to be flagged for offside.

Everton had no defenders anywhere near him, and rather than take the shot himself, Aurier had the foresight to put a low cross to a streaking Son who tapped it past Jordan Pickford.




Watford pulled a goal back through an Andre Gray header and then equalised in controversial fashion right at the finish when Abdoulaye Doucoure turned in a Troy Deeney flick-on.

Everton now sit ninth in the division but they have been woeful away from home having taken just 8 points from a possible 27 on the road so far this campaign.

The 24-year-old is now level with former Liverpool and England midfielder Gerrard with six player of the month awards, the most for any player in the competition's history.

This game should be a far more open affair, allowing Tottenham's attack to trouble Everton's defensive frailties.

Eriksen smashes a thumping drive into the corner to finish off a wonderful move involving Aurier, Son and Alli.

Spurs are in a firm three-way battle for one place in next season's Champions League and a heavy win today could see them go fourth ahead of Liverpool's clash with Manchester City.

With Harry Kane in town, this is an issue that Everton must address, or they run the risk of being embarrassed by the Tottenham forward.
