Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino couldn’t contain his joy after his team thrashed Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park, a venue they had not won for two years.
Spurs have had a mixed start to their campaign this season, and were looking to put aside their struggles at new home, Wembley, when they took on the Toffees.
Following a disappointing draw with Burnley before the break, Spurs bounced back in style, led by star forward, Harry Kane, whose August hoodoo continued as he failed to register a goal last month.
However, at Goodison, he rediscovered his scoring touch, scoring a brace, his 100th and 101st goals for club, with Christian Eriksen the other goal scorer, as Spurs earned a convincing victory over Ronald Koeman’s side.

Spurs manager, Pochettino was full of praise for his players, and called their display ‘fantastic.’
“I think it was a fantastic performance, we played very well. We are so pleased and I congratulate the players,” Pochettino said.
“It is three very important points for us at the start of a very busy period.
The Argentine also had some lovely words for his forward, Kane, who scored his 100th goal for Spurs against the Toffees.
“It is not important, (whether he meant to) cross or shoot – it was a goal for us,” he told BT Sports.
“I’m happy that he has scored 100 goals for Tottenham. He deserves a lot of praise – congratulations to him. It is an unbelievable mark for him,” he added.
For the man of the moment, Kane, he’s already has his eyes set on scoring another 100 goals for the club.
“It’s a fantastic feeling (100 goals) and achievement,” Kane said. “[And] For me, it’s about getting another 100 now as soon as I can.”
