Tottenham Hotspur v Everton

Everton travel to Wembley on Saturday evening for a 5:30pm kick-off against Tottenham Hotspur with Blues boss Sam Allardyce hoping that playing at Wembley will bring the best out of his players.

New Everton signing Cenk Tosun is set for his debut after completing a move from Besiktas and Allardyce has confirmed he's itching to feature.

There are not many thing Kane has failed to do for Spurs in terms of scoring - but one thing is score in five successive Premier League home games.

England striker Kane rounded off a stellar 2017 by breaking Alan Shearer's record for the most Premier League goals in a calendar year and outscored Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi for club and country over the 12-month period.

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.

Everton had the ball in the back of the net after 21 minutes but Wayne Rooney's strike was flagged offside.

With Serge Aurier in space inside the Everton box, the Ivorian drilled a ball across the face of goal for Son to tap in unmarked from close range.

Just 29.6% of Everton's Premier League points this season have come away from home (8/27), the lowest ratio in the division.

The Blues have not won away at Tottenham since 2008 but will swap the regular trip to the confines of White Hart Lane for the national stadium as they look to grab a result against Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Son was involved again as Alli had a chance to make it three with 53 minutes played but could only steer his attempted finish into the side netting.

While Sam Allardyce did his utmost, through mind-numbingly tiresome defensive tactics, to stifle and frustrate Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino's men were up to the test. Totenham's fist good chance fell in the 15th minute to Son, whose flicked header from a Christian Eriksen free kick delivery skimmed inches over the crossbar.

The fourth goal did not flatter a Spurs side who now sit level on points and goal difference with Liverpool ahead of the Reds' Anfield showdown with league leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

Everton didn't notch a single shot on goal in the first half, part of a disconcerting trend for the club.
