Everton started by playing a pressing game as they attempted to unsettle their visitors, however, Kane managed to draw a foul from Ashley Williams which earned the center-back a yellow card in the sixth minute.

In the seventh minute the Toffees nearly opened the scoring when Cuco Martina played a one-two with Wayne Rooney and slipped in Sandro Ramirez who just put his attempt past the post.

Spurs created their first chance of the match in the 13th minute when Dele Alli set Eriksen up for a shot,  but the Dane pulled his shot wide of the right-hand post.

In the 16th minute, Ben Davies pulled the ball back for Moussa Sissoko who had his shot blocked. Moments later Kane mistimed a shot which went wide.

The away side came close again in the 25th minute as Eric Dier slipped Eriksen through with a disguised pass but Martina came across to block the Spurs midfielder’s shot.

Spurs finally found the back of the net in the 28th minute through Kane as the England striker scored a looping goal from long range after being picked out on the right wing.

The hosts tried to pull themselves back and in the 32nd minute Ramirez had a powerful shot blocked by Toby Alderweireld.

Tottenham doubled their lead when Dele Alli’s cross was almost turned in by Ben Davies who saw his shot come off the glove of Pickford, however, Eriksen followed up to put the hosts 2-0 ahead.

Kane nearly made it three for the away side in added time after receiving the ball in the Everton box but he miscued his effort which drifted wide of the left-hand post.

The second half started as the first half ended as Kane grabbed his brace after he was picked out in the box by Davies and produced a low finish.

In the 54th minute Eriksen nearly grabbed his second when Kane set him up for a volley but Pickford did enough to save the shot. 

Soon afterward Kane had a chance to grab his hat-trick but Pickford saved again.

Kevin Trippier then did well to pick out Sissoko with a cross but the midfielder sent his header high and wide.

In the 67th minute, the hosts nearly pulled a goal back after some slack passing from Hugo Lloris gave Idrissa Gueye the ball but the Everton midfielder shot wide.

The rest of the second half was a non-event with Spurs happy to keep the ball around midfield while Everton were struggling to create any chances when they did get the ball.

In the 85th minute Rooney came close to scoring a consolation for the Toffees but his header went over the crossbar.
