Another edition of Monday Night Football is officially in the books and after a weekend full of surprises, we got arguably our biggest stunner to date when Tottenham Hotspur finally turned into the team that Antonio Conte wants them to be. They tore a hole through the heart of Everton Football Club and they did so with the kind of efficiency that will lead many to believe they can turn things around in the Premier League.
Either way, though, there was a lot to learn on a busy night of action in North London.
Therapy for Spurs
Any 5-0 win is bound to be quite cathartic given the level they’re playing at but this one was particularly needed for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. From dropping out of the FA Cup to being humbled by Burnley and beyond, Spurs have had to go through some real hardships. Now, though, if only for a couple of days, their fans can bask in the glory of a win that took them back to the good old days.
Kane back to his best?
Two goals and an overall top class performance equal some real positivity for Harry Kane and Tottenham Hotspur – as well as fans of the England national team. This outing reminded us all that despite what we thought we knew about his ‘demise’, Kane is still as hungry as he’s ever been, and he’s now scored more PL goals than Thierry Henry. With a big run-in coming up, we’re expecting to see some big things from him.
Everton in trouble
Everton are aimlessly hovering above the relegation zone and we’re not so sure there’s much Frank Lampard can do to drag them away from it right now. The Toffees are in desperate need of a confidence boost and we can’t picture where it’s going to come from, especially when you’ve got defenders like Michael Keane who are so obviously ready to go. They should still stay up, but we’d keep an eye on the blue half of Merseyside.
