Everton boss Sam Allardyce 'shocked' by Spurs thrashing

14 January 2018

But despite winning his first game in charge at Watford, his side remain bottom and need a miracle to turn things around.

The Toffees remain in ninth place and still sit seven points above the drop zone but have not won in nearly a month. They have won only 7 of their 22 games so far, drawing 6 and losing 9.

Allardyce suggested after the match that lessons had not been learnt from Everton's 2-1 FA Cup defeat by Liverpool last week, a game that was settled by Virgil van Dijk's late header. Besides the trio, Pochettino has a fully fit squad to pick from. Hugo Lloris is expected to replace Michael Vorm between the sticks, while Serge Aurier, Davison Sanchez and Ben Davies are all likely come back into the starting XI in defence.

Subs used: Wanyama (5), Sissoko (n/a), Lamela (n/a).

Sam Allardyce will miss out on the services of Leighton Baines, Michael Keane and Seamus Coleman.

It was all too much for Everton, who floundered on the road once more in spite of giving a debut to Cenk Tosun, their recent £27m signing from Besiktas. Jordan Pickford shows good reflexes to thwart Son Heung-min from close range before also denying Dele Alli on the follow-up.color-F7CA18:before { background:#F7CA18!important; } YELLOW CARD 75' - Wayne Rooney is booked for a cynical trip on Jan Vertonghen.

Michael Keane has been ruled out with a foot injury while Idrissa Gueye is also on the sidelines with a hamstring problem.

Morgan Schneiderlin replaced McCarthy in the 72nd minute, in a like-for-like move that begged the question why not use Lookman to try and at least register an effort on target??

And of course, let's not forget he matched his own record on Saturday, scoring in five successive home Premier League games and will be hoping to surpass this against Manchester United in a few weeks' time (January 31).

After losing their first home Premier League game at Wembley vs Chelsea, Spurs are unbeaten in their last 10 at the ground in the competition (W6 D4).

Tottenham Hotspur central-defender Toby Alderweireld has rejected a new contract offered to him by the club, according to the Times.

However Everton's approach was not limited to keeping Tottenham at arm's length. First chance to see @CenkTosun_ in training for the Blues!

At this rate, Kane will also be targeting the most Premier League goals in one season which now stands at 31 for a 38 game season.

"Harry Kane is such a talented player, so professional and I am very happy", Pochettino told BT Sport. "He has scored a lot of goals but his mentality is to help the team, work for the team, and that is what makes him a special player".

Harry Kane bagged his second brace against Everton this season as Tottenham Hotspur eased to three points to pile the pressure on Sam Allardyce.
