Commentary

Minute   Description
Well, that’s all for now. Until next time, goodbye!
Son was the star of the show with a goal and an assist, while Kane’s brace secures his place as Tottenham’s record Premier League goalscorer - Eriksen capping off the win with a stunner late on.
As for Everton, it’s a humiliating defeat for Sam Allardyce, whose side have now lost four on the bounce in all competitions, and look in need of some serious surgery in this transfer window.
A convincing, comprehensive victory for Tottenham, who have brushed aside a lacklustre Everton tonight to move up onto level points and goal difference with Liverpool as the race for the Champions League spots begins to shape up.
FULL TIME: Tottenham 4 Everton 0.
90'+1 There will be two minutes of stoppage time...
87' Christian Eriksen’s day is done as, moments after capping-off that stunning team move, he departs. Erik Lamela is his replacement.
84' Alli has now provided seven assists in 22 Premier League games this season, equalling his tally from 2016-17 (7 assists in 37 apps).
82' Tottenham's second change sees Mousa Dembele make way for Moussa Sissoko.
81' The play in the lead-up to that goal was immense, with Son and Alli making a mockery of Everton’s ramshackle defence.
WHAT. A. GOAL! Incredible from Tottenham, as it gets embarrassing for Everton. Slick, stunning build-up play from Son and Alli sees the latter flick the ball onto the onrushing Eriksen, who makes no mistake with a pinpoint first-time finish.
80' Brilliant defending from Holgate, who spares Lennon’s blushes after the winger had allowed Son to canter forward.
77' SUPERB FROM PICKFORD! Fantastic from Tottenham once again, as Son and Alli carve open Everton’s defence with ease, but the Toffees’ goalkeeper is on hand to make two stunning stops in quick succession - denying Son before gathering in Alli’s effort on the rebound.
75' For a second, Rooney looks set to drive into Tottenham’s area, only for Vertonghen to charge back and regain possession, before drawing a clumsy foul from the Everton man.
A first change for the hosts. Eric Dier goes off, with Victor Wanyama coming on.
74' A vital interception from Gueye, who gets back just in time to cut-out a cross destined for Alli.
72' A third and final substitution for the visitors, as James McCarthy makes way for Morgan Schneiderlin. Tottenham are yet to utilise any of their options from the bench.
69' STAT - Kane has now scored a brace in each of his last three Premier League appearances against Everton.
66' It is simply a matter of damage-limitation for Everton now, with Allardyce’s side having offered nothing going forward in the second half. And while Kane’s first goal may have been somewhat fortunate, the hosts have simply stepped up a gear since the interval and are well worth their lead.
64' Kane is now Tottenham Hotspur's all-time record goalscorer in the Premier League, and only the third player to score at least 20 goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns after Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer.
62' A second change in quick succession for Everton. Off goes debutant Cenk Tosun, and on comes Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
61' POST! Son cuts inside from the right, this time, before squaring up the defence and thumping a strike at goal. Pickford is beaten, but the upright comes to his rescue.
59' It was a great cross from Dier, but once again, Everton’s defending left so much to be desired - Holgate and Jagielka both allowing Kane to stroll into the box.
GOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! KANE AGAIN! It’s 98 Tottenham goals in the Premier League for Harry Kane, as he tucks home from Dier’s cross. And that is game over.
57' A great reception now from the home fans for Everton’s Aaron Lennon, who comes on to replace Yannick Bolasie. The winger spent close to a decade at Tottenham before joining the Toffees.
56' STAT - Kane has had a hand in 16 goals in his last 15 Premier League starts in the month of January (13 goals, 3 assists)
54' SAVE! That’s a fine stop from Pickford, who reacts sharply to deny Kane from distance. Everton are preparing a change, as at the moment they simply can’t get out of their half.
52' CHANCE! Great work from Son, who cuts inside before slotting a throughball into Alli. Kenny, though, manages to force the Tottenham man wide, and his strike nestles into the side-netting.
50' Son has had a hand in more Premier League goals at Wembley for Spurs this season than any other player (11 - 7 goals, 4 assists).
47' The replays have shown that - like Rooney earlier - Kane was offside, and that will add further insult for Everton. However, Son must take a lot of credit as he got the better of both Kenny and Holgate before setting up Kane, who is now level with Teddy Sheringham on 97 Tottenham goals.
GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! KANE MAKES IT TWO! Son turns provider this time, as he spins away from Kenny before driving forward and thumping a cross-cum-shot in. Kane looked to have been half-a-yard offside, but the linesman fails to spot it, and the striker tucks home his 97th goal for Tottenham.
46' Welcome back! We’re back up and running at Wembley, as Tottenham get the second half started.
Other than that, Everton have remained tight at the back, with Pickford relatively untroubled bar a stinging strike from Kane just prior to Son’s opener. Moments before that, Rooney did have the ball in the back of the net for the visitors, but it was ruled out for offside.
Son’s goal separates the sides at the interval, though in truth it has been a subdued encounter so far at Wembley. Tottenham haven’t been great, but nevertheless have the lead, which came as a result of some dreadful defending from Martina and Jagielka.
HALF-TIME: Tottenham 1 Everton 0.
45' A booking for Jagielka, and it is certainly a harsh one, as Everton’s captain picks up a caution for nothing more than a slight collision with Alli.
42' STAT - Son has now had a hand in more Premier League goals at Wembley for Spurs this season than any other player (10).
40' Sharp play down Everton’s left sees Tosun get free and drive into the area. He looks to tee-up Rooney, but the pass instead finds McCarthy. The Toffees keep it alive, but Tottenham come away unscathed.
37' Holgate does fantastically well to nip in ahead of Kane, who reacts by barging into the Everton youngster. Tottenham quickly regain it though, again targeting the hapless Martina down Everton’s left, but Pickford comes out to collect Eriksen’s cross.
35' Despite their lead, Tottenham have been far from at their best, with the hosts consistently conceding possession sloppily. Everton, though, have lacked the potency up top to fully capitalise.
32' McCarthy does well in midfield to regain possession and pick a good pass out into the path of Bolasie, who squares up Davies before teeing up Kenny. The full-back puts in a decent cross, but Tosun’s header lands on the roof of the net.
30' Son is just the second Spurs player to score in five consecutive home Premier League games after Jermain Defoe, who did so between November and December 2004.
28' Great play from Rooney, who sprints out from the back and manages to draw a crowd of Tottenham players, before he is brought down by Dier.
26' Aurier was afforded the freedom of the right flank in the build-up to that goal, and his relatively poor shot still had enough power on it to open up Everton's defence.
GOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! SON PUTS TOTTENHAM AHEAD! Dreadful defending from Everton enables Aurier to get down the right - with poor marking from Jagielka and Martina allowing the full-back far too much time. And, though Aurier mishits his shot, Son is on hand to tuck home.
25' Brilliant from Kane who, despite being shackled by Jagielka, manages to twist away from the Everton captain and squeeze a strike goalwards. Pickford, though, gets down low to make the save.
23' CHANCE! That seems to wake the hosts up somewhat, as Kane looks to take charge with a driving run and shot at Pickford’s goal, which Everton’s goalkeeper does well to save, with Martina on hand to prevent Alli latching onto the rebound.
22' NO GOAL! Everton looked to have taken the lead, only for Rooney’s header to be disallowed. Tosun did well to head Sigurdsson’s corner goalwards, with Rooney reacting sharply to nod past Lloris, but the former Manchester United man had strayed just offside.
21' Sigurdsson’s free-kick is cleared, but Everton work the ball back in and Alli is forced into conceding the corner. The former Tottenham man puts in a decent set-piece, but Gueye’s strike is deflected wide as Everton keep up the pressure.
20' Smart play from Tosun who, having initially done well to set Rooney free, receives the ball back from Everton’s no.10 in a difficult position, but the striker does well to win a foul from Sanchez.
19' Everton haven’t won away in the league at Tottenham since November 2008 (1-0), drawing three and losing five since then.
16' A chance now at the other end, as Tosun does well to cushion a long ball from Pickford into the path of Rooney. The former England captain, who starred so many times at this stadium, sets himself, but his eventual strike beats the upright.
15' CLOSE! Eriksen puts in a venomous delivery that Son looks to glance towards goal. Pickford is left stranded, but it soars just over the bar.
14' After losing their first home Premier League game at Wembley vs Chelsea, Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 10 at the ground in the leauge (W6 D4). As I type, Gueye scythes down Alli on the cusp of Everton's area.
12' This is Allardyce’s first managerial appearance at Wembley since 2012, when his West Ham side claimed promotion in the Championship Play-Off Final. He never managed England at this stadium.
10' Great awareness and pace from Holgate - who was involved in a controversial tussle with Roberto Firmino last week - who gets back to prevent Alli latching onto Kane’s throughball.
8' A first touch in a dangerous area for Tosun, who gets onto the end of Gueye’s pass. It’s a poor touch, though, from the Turkey international, allowing Sanchez to recover.
6' It is a rather subdued atmosphere at Wembley at the moment, but it is the home side who have had all of the ball - with Everton sitting far too deep.
5' A corner now for the hosts, as Aurier’s cross hits the back of Martina. Davies will whip in the set-piece… but Jagielka glances it away.
4' As expected, Tottenham have started on the front foot, with Holgate and Jagielka already called upon to make some last-ditch clearances.
3' Everton managed just two away wins in the league in 2017, and although their away form has improved overall under Allardyce, the Toffees still lack a real threat on the counter. However, with the pace of Bolasie and the tenacity of new arrival Tosun, that could allow Sigurdsson and Rooney to expose Tottenham on the break.
1' KICK-OFF! Everton, donning their usual blue and white strip, get proceedings underway at Wembley!
A full debut then for Everton’s Cenk Tosun, who signed for a reported £28million fee from Besiktas eight days ago. The 26-year-old leads the line, and that is one of just two changes from the side that started at Anfield in the defeat to Liverpool last time out. The other alteration sees Idrissa Gueye return from injury to replace Morgan Schneiderlin.
Everton substitutes: Schneiderlin, Williams, Lennon, Niasse, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman, Robles.
Everton (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Kenny, Holgate, Jagielka, Martina; Gueye, McCarthy; Bolasie, Rooney, Sigurdsson; Tosun.
As would be expected, a glut of changes from Pochettino from the side that brushed aside MK Dons in the FA Cup. Harry Kane - who scored a brace in that match - retains his place up top, of course, while Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen also stay in.
Tottenham substitutes: Trippier, Lamela, Wanyama, Vorm, Sissoko, Llorente, Walker-Peters.
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Dembele; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane.
Team news is in from Wembley. We’ll start off with the home side.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League games against Everton (W5 D5), their longest such run against them since a run of 13 between 1997 and 2003. A victory for Mauricio Pochettino’s side today would see them move level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.
Three defeats on the bounce for Everton have dampened spirits somewhat at Goodison Park, following an impressive unbeaten run start to Sam Allardyce’s tenure, with the Toffees winless since December 18th. Tottenham, meanwhile, are looking to return to winning ways following a frustrating draw with West Ham in their last league outing.
Hello, football fans, to LIVE coverage of today’s final Premier League encounter, as Tottenham host Everton at Wembley Stadium.
