Tottenham welcome Everton to north London in the Premier League’s late kick off on Saturday with Harry Kane looking to extend his goal scoring record against the Toffees.
Harry Kane got on the score sheet in the Champions League 3-2 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, scoring from the spot, and was the only difference between the Antonio Conte’s side and Brighton when they met last week Saturday.
His typical poacher’s finish to get a flick on Son Heung-min’s cross in the 20th minute at the Amex Stadium gave Tottenham the fully deserved three points.
The OptaJoe revealed Harry Kane has now scored in four consecutive Premier League matches – his joint longest-ever scoring streak in the competition – and a goal against Everton will make it the first time in EPL that the 191 premier League goal scorer will score in five consecutive matches.

Talismanic striker Harry Kane found the back of the net against Brighton to take his tally for the season to eight goals in nine Premier League appearances, and the England captain is no stranger to success against Everton.
Everton are Kane’s joint-second favourite opponents to play against behind Leicester City (20) – he has also scored 14 times against Arsenal.
All in all, Kane has registered an impressive 14 goals from 15 games against Everton in all competitions, including 13 strikes from 14 Premier League outings, winning eight, drawing five and losing one of those matches.
Nevertheless, Kane’s penchant for braces against Frank Lampard’s side remained very much alive, as he struck twice in a 2-2 Premier League draw in April 2021.
Last season, the England skipper and Tottenham settled for a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park in Antonio Conte’s first game in charge, but he then came up with his sixth brace in this fixture when Spurs ran out 5-0 winners in North London back in March.
The only other player to strike as many braces against a single opponent in the Premier League was Alan Shearer, who hit six doubles and a hat-trick against Leeds United.
Spurs boast a formidable home record in the Premier League having won 10 of their last 11 games including a 5-0 victory over Everton in March.
A success for the hosts would put them level on points with Manchester City and a point behind leaders Arsenal both of whom play on Sunday.
