Sam Allardyce: Everton 'unprofessional' in 4-0 Spurs defeat

The Denmark worldwide is also rumoured to be on the radar of Barcelona following another stellar campaign to date that has seen him score six goals and assist six more in 23 Premier League outings.

Levy shot down suggestions Tottenham's return from Wembley will be delayed, saying: "Unless there are unforeseen circumstances, I'm very confident we will be playing our home games back here for the start of next season".

Everton's squad can expect a rough time on the training pitch this week after Sam Allardyce vowed to stamp out any unprofessionalism in their ranks following Saturday's heavy 4-0 defeat at Tottenham.

Lloris said: "If I've ever considered a departure from Tottenham?"

"I may be older than Harry but I am learning from him the whole time".

Harry Kane then netted Spurs' second right after the interval and Allardyce believed that to be "the killer", before the England star added another just prior to the hour mark and Christian Eriksen wrapped things up late on.

With Everton's defence in tatters, Eriksen completed the rout by collecting fellow midfielder Dele Alli's clever flick on before beating Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with a crisp finish in the 81st minute. "When I play with him and the team, he beats every record and we are part of this".

Everton finally roused themselves with Wayne Rooney dragging a left-foot shot just wide before he had a goal disallowed for offside after 22 minutes.

Zimmer hasn't decided on Bradford's status against the Saints
Plucked off the Jaguars' practice squad late last season, he's been one of the bigger surprises on the team this year. Bradford was back for the Bears game, but hobbled around in the first half before being pulled for Keenum.

This season has already seen Kane break Alan Shearer's record for most Premier League goals in a calendar year with 39, while also finishing 2017 with more goals than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It was not necessarily an unbelievable performance from Kane, but to grab two goals despite not performing at his best shows just how clinical and important the Spurs talisman is.

Tottenham, who are now unbeaten in six matches, remain fifth in the Premier League, but are level on points with Liverpool and 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

"Harry Kane is such a talented player, so professional and I am very happy. I think we have to try (VAR)".

"It's hugely out of order that you relinquish that defensive responsibility when you've just gone 2-0 down". We've got to cut it out and we've got to cut it out starting tomorrow.

"After having a wonderful start, we are back on risky ground with our results and it's our responsibility to get results, not wait to see if other teams have lost".

The second goal was all down to some outrageous skill by Son who caused Everton massive problems with his hard work and pace.
