Well that brings an end to our live coverage for another Saturday in the Premier League. Tottenham round it off with another virtuoso performance as Harry Kane gets on the scoresheet.

We're back tomorrow with two stellar games, headlined by Liverpool against Manchester City.

But until then, its goodbye.

Full time: Tottenham 4-0 Everton

Just about as comprehensive as you wish to see from Tottenham. Two for Harry Kane and one each for Son Heung-Min and Christian Eriksen takes Spurs level on points with fourth place Liverpool. Everton were woeful and once they went behind were merely in survival mode.

One goal still needed to take Spurs into fourth in the table outright, though they are destined to go level on points with Liverpool.

Christian Eriksen off in the closing minutes as Erik Lamela comes on.

GOAL! Tottenham 4-0 Everton

One of the goals of the season from Spurs, who have been super slick in this second half. Kane, Son and Alli all combine before Eriksen curls home from the edge of the box. Tottenham are going fourth as things stand.

That should be four for Spurs. Son and then Alli is denied by Pickford, who stood up to the bombardment of efforts on his goal.

Eric Dier off and Victor Wanyama on as his recovery from a knee injury continues.


Kane celebrates netting his 98th Tottenham goal in the Premier League.

Cenk Tosun off and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on for Everton. A good hour from the Turk on his debut, and it won't get much more difficult than that.

GOAL! Tottenham 3-0 Everton (Harry Kane)

This could get messy for Everton now. Aurier turns provider again as his cross finds Kane, whose scruffy finish finds the back of the net. And still 30 minutes to go.

Aaron Lennon on for Everton, and is given a rousing reception from the home faithful. You so rarely see that in the game these days.

One more goal needed for Harry Kane to grab another record.

Pickford now keeps out Harry Kane's arrowing drive. Everton are sitting ducks here.

Should really be three for Tottenham as Dele Alli goes through on goal but it is the side-netting he finds from the angle. Everton could go down hard here.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Everton (Harry Kane)

Two minutes into the second half but you'd be tempted to venture that is game over. Son Heung-Min nips the ball ahead of Kenny shots across goal - a la Aurier in the first half - and Kane is on hand this time, potentially from an offside position, to tap home.

Back under way at Wembley. No changes made by either side.

Half time: Tottenham 1-0 Everton

A half of one goal that wasn't and one goal that was.

The one that wasn't saw Wayne Rooney's header chalked off for offside, a great decision in a week which has seen VAR make its debut in English football.

Son Heung-Min took advantage of the one that was with a simple finish from Serge Aurier's cross-shot, to score for a fifth home league game in a row.

Everton threaten as we approach the final five minutes of the first half. Tosun is again involved and when his pull back can't find Sigurdsson he visitors recycle the ball.

Sanchez heads clear Kenny's cross ad McCarthy can only poke over the loose ball.

Wayne Rooney's celebrations are cut short as the Everton forward's header is adjudged to be offside.

Son Heung-Min celebrates his 11th goal of the season.

First effort on goal for Cenk Tosun. Bolasie raids down the right and when Jonjo Kenny crosses, Tosun jumps but doesn't time it and his header balloons over.

Sam Allardyce watches on as Everton go behind.

Son Heung-Min the first player since Jermain Defoe to score in five straight Tottenham home games. He held up five fingers upon netting that opening goal, so the stat is not lost on him.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Everton (Son Heung-Min)

And the hosts have the lead. Tottenham switch play once again and Aurier brings the ball down, lashes it goalwards and Son slides into an empty net.

Harry Kane has been quiet somewhat but he's into the action on queue, getting his shot away after turning on the box. Pickford held on well.

Ball in the net at Wembley and it is Wayne Rooney who sees his header chalked off. A header on from Tosun from an Everton corner finds Rooney who heads home but rightly the linesman raises his flag.

Cenk Tosun looks very decent in these opening minutes, linking up well with strike-partner Rooney already. The Turk has been in decent form this season and he looks very sharp.

Half a chance for Everton now as this game bursts belatedly into life. Tosun lifts the ball on to Rooney who takes it down and shoots left-footed wide of Lloris' goal.

Half a chance for Spurs. Eriksen's whips in a free-kick and Son glances on at the near post but it flies just past the left-hand post.

Tottenham win the ball 30 yards from goal and Kane is fed down the right who crosses but it evades Alli and Eriksen in the middle and goes out of play. Sort of sums up this lacklustre start.

Dreadfully slow start to this game. These tea-time kick-offs often flatter to decisive and this one is no different. Poor match so far.

Under way at Wembley.

Teams in the tunnel at Wembley and on their way out. The national stadium about three quarters full it seems. Can both teams put on a show for those in attendance?

How will Everton approach this game today?

You only have to look back to how Tottenham tore Liverpool apart a few months back for an example of how a team can be shredded if they try and come out to play with Spurs. And surely with Sam Allardyce in the hutch now their approach is surely going to be the opposite.

Sam Allardyce admits he has taken a gamble throwing Cenk Tosun into the fray for his English league debut, having just signed him from Besiktas for £27m.

He has 14 goals already this season, four of which have come in the Champions League. Tosun also has a winning goal against Tottenham in Europe, so perhaps the gamble will come off for Everton.

So with Chelsea having dropped points this evening is a real chance for Tottenham to make up ground on the top three. If they win by four today they can go fourth ahead of Liverpool facing Man City tomorrow.

Full time across the country in the Premier League, so almost time to start our build-up to this key game in to different areas in the table...

Another big occasion at Wembley awaits.

Six changes for Everton from the defeat to Manchester United. A debut for Cenk Tosun, who replaces Oumar Niasse. Jonjo Kenny and Phil Jagielka return to the back four, Idrissa Gueye and James McCarthy are partnered in midfield and there is also a recall for Gylfi Sigurdsson.

One change for Tottenham from their last Premier League outing against West Ham. Moussa Sissoko is replaced by Mousa Dembele.

Teams have dropped from Wembley.

Team news round the corner.....

Both these sides will be looking up rather than down this afternoon. Spurs could go fourth if they go big today, while the Toffees are eyeing the top six after a slow start to the campaign.

And Everton's players are also in place at Wembley.

Tottenham have arrived at Wembley ahead of kick-off.

Team news on the way from Wembley, but how might both sides line up this afternoon?

Tottenham are without Harry Winks, Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld but are expected to be unchanged from their last league outing.

Cenk Tosun could make his debut for Everton after his £27m move to Goodison. Micheal Keane and Idrissa Gueye are out.

As we do every Saturday we have live coverage of the 3pm kick-offs in the Premier League. Lots of action and goals to get your teeth into here via our live blog.

There will be no tea-time snoring at Wembley this evening as top four chasing Tottenham host ever-improving Everton.

Spurs are in a firm three-way battle for one place in next season's Champions League and a heavy win today could see them go fourth ahead of Liverpool's clash with Manchester City.

Everton may have lost their last three but Sam Allardyce's impact he been significant, turning the club from relegation candidates into top half contenders. They can cement that with a win at the home of the England senior team, who Allardyce managed for one game but never at Wembley. He gets his chance today.

All the team news and build-up ahead of the 5:30pm kick-off on the way.
