Kane can break more records: boss

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - SPORT FOOTBALL -

TOT­TEN­HAM boss Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino says there is more to come from Harry Kane af­ter the Eng­land striker be­came the club’s leading goalscorer in the English Premier League.

Kane’s dou­ble in the 4-0 win over Ever­ton at Wem­b­ley took his tally to 98 goals in the EPL, go­ing one past Teddy Sher­ing­ham’s pre­vi­ous record.

Po­chet­tino backed the 24-year-old (pic­tured) to keep build­ing on his achieve­ments.

“He can do any­thing,” the Ar­gen­tine said.

“With his men­tal­ity and his pro­fes­sion­al­ism he can achieve all that he wishes. He is al­ways look­ing to im­prove and that’s what makes him spe­cial.”

The 4-0 suc­cess took Spurs up to fourth ahead of Liver­pool on goal dif­fer­ence, with the Reds tak­ing on lead­ers Manch­ester City overnight. Son He­ung-min scored the opener in the first half be­fore Kane’s brace.

Chris­tian Eriksen com­pleted the rout in the 81st minute with a crisp fin­ish.

“I’m so happy be­cause these points give us the be­lief and con­fi­dence to fight with Chelsea, Liver­pool and Manch­ester United for a place in the top four,” Po­chet­tino added.

Else­where, there was con­tro­versy at Wat­ford and New­cas­tle, where the away teams seemed to be hard done by by the match of­fi­cials.

Southamp­ton drew 2-2 at Wat­ford af­ter tak­ing a 2-0 lead but Ab­doulaye Doucoure sent the ball into the net with his right hand to score Wat­ford’s equaliser in the 90th minute.

Video as­sis­tant ref­er­ees were used for the first time in English foot­ball this week but be­cause they still aren’t de­ployed in the EPL, Doucoure’s goal was al­lowed.

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.
