TOTTENHAM boss Mauricio Pochettino says there is more to come from Harry Kane after the England striker became the club's leading goalscorer in the English Premier League.

Kane's double in the 4-0 win over Everton at Wembley took his tally to 98 goals in the EPL, going one past Teddy Sheringham's previous record.

Pochettino backed the 24-year-old to keep building on his achievements.

"He can do anything,” the Argentine said.

"With his mentality and his professionalism he can achieve all that he wishes. He is always looking to improve and that's what makes him special.”

The 4-0 success took Spurs up to fourth ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, with the Reds taking on leaders Manchester City overnight.

Son Heung-min scored the opener in the first half before Kane's brace.

Christian Eriksen completed the rout in the 81st minute with a crisp finish.

"I'm so happy because these points give us the belief and confidence to fight with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United for a place in the top four. That is our challenge, our target,” Pochettino added.

Elsewhere, there was controversy at Watford and Newcastle, where the away teams seemed to be hard done by by the match officials.

Southampton drew 2-2 at Watford after taking a 2-0 lead but Abdoulaye Doucoure sent the ball into the net with his right hand to score Watford's equaliser in the 90th minute.

Video assistant referees were used for the first time in domestic English football this week but because they still aren't deployed in the Premier League, Doucoure's goal was allowed to stand.

Swansea were also on the end of a mistake which would have been rectified by the VAR when they appeared to be denied a first-half penalty in the 1-1 draw at Newcastle.

EPL scores: Chelsea 0 Leicester 0, Newcastle 1 Swansea 1, Watford 2 Southampton 3, Crystal Palace 1 Burnley 0, West Brom 2 Brighton 0, Huddersfield 1 West Ham 4
