While Sam Allardyce did his utmost, through mind-numbingly boring defensive tactics, to stifle and frustrate Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino's men were up to the test. Totenham's fist good chance fell in the 15th minute to Son, whose flicked header from a Christian Eriksen free kick delivery skimmed inches over the crossbar.
Back against BTTS at 8/13.
England striker Kane rounded off a stellar 2017 by breaking Alan Shearer's record for the most Premier League goals in a calendar year and outscored Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi for club and country over the 12-month period.
Mauricio Pochettino's side are going strong in the league at the moment and are very much in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
They were pegged back West Ham last time out though, meaning their hard work over Christmas could be undone if they don't respond with a win.
Another year, another record for Harry Kane.
Spurs were certainly on the front foot throughout against an Everton side who have now suffered four successive defeats.
Spurs eased in to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon last weekend but their focus will be firmly on Premier League matters tomorrow.
Son was at the heart of the move that put Tottenham two goals to the good just two minutes into the second half.
26' - GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Everton.
At the other end of the pitch, Everton now have Cenk Tosun available after his arrival from Besiktas. "It is a massive problem in terms of you are hoping rather than being guaranteed he hits the ground running", said the Toffees boss.
Tottenham are without Harry Winks, Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld but are expected to be unchanged from their last league outing.
Danny Rose is another absentee for the north Londoners as he's still at least two weeks away from recovering from a knee injury.
Harry Winks is doubtful for the clash, as he struggles with an ankle issue. Micheal Keane and Idrissa Gueye are out.
The Blues will also be without long-term absentees Leighton Baines, Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Funes Mori although Allardyce revealed that Coleman has returned to first-team training.
