England striker Harry Kane scored a brace as Spurs reignited their top 4 Finish hopes with a thumping 5-0 win over relegation-threatened Everton FC at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Monday.
Kane’s double took him to 176 Premier League goals and moved him above Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry for sixth place on the all-time scorers’ list.
Everton’s next two matches are both at Goodison Park as they play Wolves on Sunday before facing miNewcastle on March 17.
Everton have lost four of five league outings since Lampard was appointed to replace Rafa Benitez, leaving the Toffees just a point above the relegation zone.
Tottenham, meanwhile, will be looking up once again after an inconsistent run of form. Monday’s win leaves them three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal in the battle for the final Champions League spot, although having played a game more.
“The top four has to be our ambition,” Kane said afterward. “We are not the finished article yet but the manager has had time to settle in and physically, I think we are in a really good position.
“We are in there and in the mix and we have to feel that pressure if we want to be a top team.”
