Mauricio Pochettino joked that he’s pleased Jimmy Greaves’ all-time Tottenham league scorer record is still out of reach for Harry Kane after the striker became their highest Premier League goalscorer of all-time.
Son Heung-min opened the scoring in the first half of Spurs’ 4-0 win over Everton when he steered Serge Aurier’s mis-hit shot into the net, before two second-half goals from Kane and another from Christian Eriksen secured the points.
Kane now has 98 league goals for the club after hitting his 19th and 20th of the current campaign and Pochettino was full of praise for the England international.
“It was a fantastic performance,” said Pochettino. “I think we fully deserved the victory. It was a game we must win, a massive three points.
“Harry Kane is such a talented player, so professional and I am very happy. He deserves all the credit and a lot of praise. In this way he will break all the records in the Premier League.
“The good thing is Jimmy Greaves’ record (all-time top Tottenham league scorer with 220 goals) is far so not every week he is going to break something.”
