Five-star Spurs brush Everton aside

English Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur piled more misery on the struggling Everton with a 5-0 hammering in the Premier League on Monday evening.

Spurs coach Antonio Conte named one change from Spurs’ defeat to Middlesbrough as Harry Winks dropped out for Rodrigo Bentancur, as Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a 200th league appearance.

Spurs hit the front in no less than 13 minutes after an opening down the line by Ben Davies to Ryan Sessegnon had Michael Keane unfortunately guide the latter’s delivery into his own net.

It was two within two minutes when Son stepped into a low passing move involving Dejan Kulusevski around the area and went on to fire into the bottom-corner.

After maintaining the momentum, Spurs increased their tally eight minutes before halftime as Harry Kane latched onto a ball in behind from Matt Doherty to go level with Pickford and find the back of the net.

Here are the highest-paid players in the Premier League this season:

Spurs did not let up in the second half when Sergio Reguilon, who replaced Sessegnon, arrived unmarked in the area and side-footed a cross from Son into an open net.

Kane made it five with a first-volley from the shoulder of the area moments after Eric Dier headed off the woodwork to complete his brace on the night.

Spurs controlled every avenue midway through the second half with Son the key talisman in this regard and left the Toffees to chase shadows extensively.

Manager Frank Lampard looked to the bench for a sign of inspiration following the closing minutes and introduced Delle Alli against the team he featured for not so long ago.

However, Spurs continued to have the lion share of chances with minutes to go particularly through Steven Bergwijn, but 5-0 was how the encuonter ended in North London.
