Speaking after Saturday's match, the 25-year-old added: "Everyone is really very pleased with the win and how we played was very good so it's on to the next game".

While Son was awarded Man of the Match for his performance against Everton, Harry Kane's brace saw him become Spurs' all-time top Premier League goalscorer, and Eriksen lauded the England worldwide after the encounter.

Defender Michael Keane is still sidelined due to a gash to his foot which has reopened an old wound and is taking longer than expected to heal, while midfielder Idrissa Gueye (hamstring) is also out.

Son Heung-min also enjoyed a phenomenal outing and was heavily involved in the build play for his side.

Since taking over at Tottenham in 2014, Pochettino has only bought one player in January, which was Dele Alli, and he stayed with MK Dons until the following summer.

Mauricio Pochettino: "He [Harry Kane] can do everything because of his mentality and how he is as a professional".

Everton had the ball in the net first but Wayne Rooney was correctly ruled offside.

Spurs: Lloris, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Son, Kane, Dier (Wanyama, 73), Dembele (Sissoko, 81), Alli, Eriksen (Lamela, 86) Aurier, Davies.

West Brom beat Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 at The Hawthorns for a first Premier League win since August 19.

Son was there waiting to tap home, and continue his fine run of form in front of goal.

However, the final 15 minutes of the half failed to provide any goal-mouth action as Spurs went into the break leading by one goal.

After losing their first home Premier League game at Wembley vs Chelsea, Spurs are unbeaten in their last 10 at the ground in the competition (W6 D4).

Meanwhile, a source has told ESPN FC that Spurs are interested in signing Stevenage Borough centre-back Ben Wilmot, 18, who would join the club's academy.

"You can lose a game of football but not lose like we did today".

The Tottenham striker scored eight goals in six matches, including back-to-back hat-tricks against Burnley and Southampton in a vintage month.

He already has 20 goals this season, usually the benchmark for an entire campaign. "I will have to see tonight or tomorrow [Sunday] what the situation is".

"He has scored a lot of goals, but it's all about working for the team - and that is what makes him a special player".

Sam Allardyce: "Maybe I have a bit of responsibility by playing too much attacking-minded players and not as many defending-minded players".

Chelsea were held to a frustrating goalless draw by Leicester at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, on a day that saw the bottom half of the table remain incredibly tight.

Kane's goals have come in only 135 games, while Sheringham took 237.
