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

Betting: Tottenham to make light work of toothless Toffees
Paul Merson states his prediction for Tottenham v Everton

Everton have won only 1 of their last 19 away matches in the Premier League.

The stalemate left the third-placed Blues 15 points adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City, who play Liverpool on Sunday.

Moreover, constant attacking pressing from the hosts saw the Toffees being dominated in the second half. "He's younger than me but I'm learning from him".

Swansea were also on the end of a mistake which would have been rectified by the VAR when they appeared to be denied a first-half penalty in the 1-1 draw at Newcastle. He deserves all the credit and the praise.

Tottenham made one change with Mousa Dembele replacing Moussa Sissoko.

Christian Eriksen rounded off a cleverly worked team move, again featuring Son, for Spurs' fourth as Everton crashed to its heaviest defeat under Sam Allardyce, who gave a debut to £27 million ($37 million) new signing Cenk Tosun. If you can play like that at Liverpool and just at the death get beat, surely you can come here to Tottenham and deliver the same performance and maybe get a result.

"He is always thinking 'improve, improve, improve and how to score goals and to improve the team' because his mentality is always collective and that is so important to explain to people".

Spurs with a quick start, moving the ball around quickly and confidently saw Kenny penalised for a foul on Son and Aurier win the first corner off Martina inside five minutes.

Ward-Prowse, on target in last weekend's 1-0 win FA Cup victory over Fulham, doubled the Saints' lead shortly before half-time after he was unselfishly played in by Dusan Tadic.

Somehow, Pochettino has to create a mindset where both the short-term anxieties of the transfer window and the long-term uncertainties of the squad are put to one side and players focus on each game as it comes.

Harry Kane ended 2017 as the Europe's top goalscorer - and he broke another record today.

Sam Allardyce maybe did the firefighter job he was brought in to do too quickly as on the evidence of this no-show at Wembley, the gig of moving Everton higher up the table AND playing attractive, winning football looks beyond him.

This was Son's 40 goal in 117 appearances for Spurs which is outstanding.

England striker Kane took his Spurs total in the competition to 98, leaving him one clear of White Hart Lane legend Teddy Sheringham.

"It is unbelievable the way that he is able to work and his willingness. He can achieve all he wishes and he wants", Pochettino told reporters.

The only other player to have done that is Jermain Defoe until yesterday.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "I would like to congratulate Harry".
