Everton gave a debut to new £27m signing, Cenk Tosun, but the former Besiktas striker had little to work with as the ninth-placed Blues, who saw a header from Wayne Rooney correctly chalked off for offside, slumped to a fourth straight defeat.

The impressive Son Heung-Min had opened the scoring in the first-half as he notched for a fifth straight home league match, while Christian Eriksen put the seal on an emphatic success when he finished off a wonderful move nine minutes from time.

Harry Kane is 10/3 to score and assist against Everton.

Tottenham are now fifth in the league table with 41 points from 22 matches, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

Spurs were rampant, though, and just a minute later they had their third goal as Kane surpassed Sheringham as Tottenham's highest-ever Premier League goalscorer, bringing up number 98 with another close-range finish, although this one was scuffed over Pickford from Eric Dier's drilled low delivery.

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.
