Striker and Keeper
It’s hard to find much wrong with a striker when he provides you two goals in a match. Kane continued his hot play with two really good goals against the Toffees.
His first hit was an absolute rocket from distance. Some commentators thought Joel Robles should have done better, but I think Kane deserves more credit than that. It was a powerful finish by one of the best pure ball strikers in the world.
The only slight issue I had with Kane’s performance was that he could have scored even more. He repeatedly got himself into really dangerous positions with the ball but couldn’t find a way to slip another ball into the back of the net.
All in all, it was another really good performance from Kane. He’s Tottenham’s best player and he showed it again today.
In fairness to the French keeper, he really didn’t have much of a chance to prevent either of Everton’s goals. Both were quality finishes that would have required world-class saves to keep out of the net.
On the other hand, Lloris once again put his squad in jeopardy with his inability to handle a ball that checked near the box. It’s a troubling trend for Spurs. Fortunately he got away with his poor header this time, but it’s something to watch moving forward.
On the whole it was an adequate performance from Hugo. Nothing more, nothing less.
