Spurs opened the scoring on 25 minutes as a cross field ball from Eriksen found Aurier in oceans of space on the Everton left side and his cross come shot was easily finished by Son. Dele Alli is expected to start in a central attacking midfield role, with Harry Kane leading the line.
Everton: Pickford, Kenny (6), Holgate (6), Jagielka (6), Martina (5), McCarthy (5), Gueye (5), Bolasie (5), Rooney (6), Sigurdsson (6), Tosun (6). 89' - Wayne Rooney crosses for Dominic Calvert-Lewin but Jan Vertonghen gets just enough on the ball to divert it away from the Everton substitute. Christian Eriksen speared it in and Son Heung-Min's flicked back header looped just beyond the far post.
Since then, Spurs have won five out of six games, only failing to beat West Ham in a frustrating 1-1 draw, and Saturday's victory over the Toffees moved them level with fourth-place Liverpool, who host City on Sunday.
The goal was rightfully ruled out for offside.
This seemed to put the fire into Tottenham as Son scored the opening not long after.
Son Heung-min scored the opener in the first half before Kane's brace. Son was there waiting to tap home, and continue his fine run of form in front of goal. Immediately there was a greater intensity to their play, with Kane testing Jordan Pickford's reflexes with a curling shot from 18 yards, and they took the lead with an impressive goal.
Kane would go on to break that record 12 minutes later when he scored his second goal of the evening.
The England global now has 20 goals this term to leave him just 11 shy of the leading number of strikes in a 38-game Premier League season - a record held by Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez - and 14 away from Andy Cole and Shearer's joint haul of 34 during a 42-match campaign.
Two out of three games with zero shots on target will hardly win around a sceptical Everton crowd and may ultimately cost him his job in the summer as surely the fans will demand the right style of football moving forward and Sam may have to prove he is building a solid base, but has definite attacking intent moving forward.
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. "With his mentality and his professionalism he can achieve all that he wishes".
"He's unbelievable, the way he's able to work, his willingness. He is always looking to improve and that's what makes him special". The Turkish striker certainly did not disgrace himself on his debut and his performance was the only bright spot for Sam Allardyce.
"It shocked me to be honest; I haven't seen it since I got here".
