Saturday Recap

Kane became Tottenham’s all-time Premier League top scorer on Saturday as he scored twice in the win over Everton:

Son Heung-min opened the scoring for Spurs, slotting home at the far post after Serge Aurier had fired the ball across goal.

Kane then got his first just two minutes into the second half, although Son also played a key role in the goal. The South Korean surged forward and fired in a cross that Kane tucked home.

The striker then grabbed his second on the hour mark as he managed to get on the end of a ball from Eric Dier and put it past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

ESPN FC’s Dan Kilpatrick showed how impressive it was to score 20 goals by January:

With a three-goal lead Spurs then turned on the style and scored a beautiful team goal that began with Kane and ended with Dele Alli flicking for Christian Eriksen to fire home.

It was a fitting finish to an impressive performance by Spurs with Kane highlighting once again how he is one of the deadliest strikers around.

Chelsea made it three goalless draws in a row on Saturday, as they were held by 10-man Leicester City, who had Ben Chilwell sent off in the second half after picking up two yellow cards.

Striker Alvaro Morata drew yet another blank and has now gone five games without a goal for the reigning Premier League champions.

The hosts created very little in the first half, and Antonio Conte opted to replace Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas after the break for Pedro and Willian, which did little to help Morata.

Goal’s Nizaar Kinsella highlighted how long Chelsea have now gone without scoring:

The Blues stay in second place in the table but will lose ground on Manchester United if they beat Stoke City on Monday.

Crystal Palace striker Bakary Sako scored his fourth goal in seven games as the Eagles continued their revival with a 1-0 win over Burnley at Selhurst Park.

The striker cut in from the left and fired a powerful shot past goalkeeper Nick Pope midway through the first half.

Sky Sports Statto showed what an impact he is having at Palace:

The win moves Roy Hodgson’s side further away from the relegation zone and is a fine response to the disappointment of having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday.

West Ham are also on the rise after beating Huddersfield Town 4-1 with Manuel Lanzini scoring twice for the Hammers.

Mark Noble had put the visitors in front after 25 minutes before Joe Lolley curled home a superb equaliser five minutes before the break. 

However, West Ham came flying out of the blocks after the break with Marko Arnautovic smashing home within seconds of the restart before setting up Lanzini twice to make it 4-1.

Football.London’s Sam Inkersole noted how Huddersfield struggled to cope with the Austrian:

It’s another important win for West Ham, who are now five points off the bottom three. The victory was also a 200th Premier League win for manager David Moyes, as shown by BT Sport Score:

Elsewhere, there was controversy at Vicarage Road as Abdoulaye Doucoure scored a 90th-minute equaliser for Watford in a 2-2 draw with Southampton.

However, the midfielder appeared to bundle the ball home using his arm. Joe Prince-Wright at NBC Sports said it was a blatant handball:

A James Ward-Prowse double had earlier put Southampton in command, but Andre Grey pulled one back before Doucoure’s equaliser.

The result will put further pressure on Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino with his team just one point off the relegation zone and without a Premier League win since November.
