"I thought he was good and he's experienced a hard game, and there won't be many more hard ones to play away from home than against Tottenham" Allardyce said.

While Spurs maintained their recent surge in form, Everton slumped to their heaviest defeat under new manager Sam Allardyce.

Son was the benefactor of a whipped in Serge Aurier cross eleven minutes later, easily dispatching for Tottenham's opener.

With 22 minutes on the clock, the visitors thought they had taken the lead when new striker Cenk Tosun headed on a corner and Wayne Rooney pounced, only for him to be flagged for offside.

I think that's really out of order to relinquish that responsibility just because you go 2-0 down two minutes into the second half.

Heung-Min Son (26) had opened the scoring in the first half, and matched his own Tottenham record as he netted in his fifth consecutive home Premier League game - equalling Jermain Defoe's previous efforts - and Christian Eriksen rounded off proceedings late on (81), sweeping home a fine team move.

Runaway league-leaders City underlined their Premier League dominance by hammering last season's runners-up 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium on December 16, to move 21 points clear of Pochettino's side.

Tottenham are also 2 points ahead of 6th placed Arsenal and will have to win if they wish to stay ahead of their rivals and keep their chances of making the top four alive.

Tosun will be hoping for a better home debut when West Brom visit Goodison Park next Saturday. The goal was rightfully ruled out for offside.

Despite losing to Tottenham, Everton remain ninth in the Premier League, with 27 points from 23 games.

The striker is the league top scorer with 20, three more than nearest rival Mohamed Salah. It shocked me. I haven't seen it since I got here.

Chelsea was unable to pierce Leicester's defence even after visiting left-back Ben Chilwell was sent off for a second bookable offense midway through the second half.

Doucoure turned the ball in with his hand as he stooped for a header but, with no video assistant referees in the Premier League, the goal stood and denied Southampton a first league win in 10 games.

He continually powered towards goal whenever he had possession, linking up superbly with Alli and Kane on numerous occasions.

He has now won six Premier League Player of the Month awards.

Trump extends Iran nuclear deal again
Congress has so far shown little interest in using legislation to undercut or change the current Iran nuclear deal. And, like the bill I expect from Congress, these provisions of a supplemental agreement must never expire.
