But Sunday's game will be about the two teams and how we adapt to the imperatives of the game and attempt to gain the upper hand.
Dele Alli restored the two-goal cushion in injury-time before substitute Enner Valencia added another goal seconds later to complete a dramatic finish at White Hart Lane.
Kane was allowed to turn 35 yards from goal and, with the Everton defence standing off him, unleashed a powerful long range effort past the outstretched Joel Robles.
Spurs were good value after that and were unfortunate not to make it 2-0 a few minutes later, but this time Robles stood his ground and denied Kane a quick-fire double.
They're the only unbeaten home team in the top flight and since playing out a 1-1 draw with a then free-flowing Liverpool in August, they've taken 31 points from a possible 33 at White Hart Lane.
As it stands, Tottenham are Chelsea's closest challengers in the Premier League, but Mauricio Pochettino's side are 10 points behind the Blues and are also by no means comfortable in terms of a top-four position in the table.
The game then went into a bit of lull for a while with Spurs quite comfortable in the game as the visitors just couldn't get going at all. His first goal last week, he ripped the net off.
The Spurs boss also reiterated his praise for Kane, who is on fire in 2017 and has scored 13 goals in 12 games in all competitions, dubbing the England hitman "one of the best".

A fourth hat-trick in ten games for Kane seemed to be on the cards with eighteen minutes left on the clock but the England global was flagged offside as he made to convert a Kyle Walker low cross.
"If we get the time to improve, that's the next step for the club".
"Last season they fought until the last part of the season to win the title and they signed long-term contracts with good players, with young players".
Now, large sections of the Everton fan base on social media are hoping he never plays for them again, while many claimed the game was gone when Barry was named in the line-up. "That's centre-forward play of the highest order", said Alan Smith in the Sky Sports commentary box.
Tottenham will have their work cut-out to prevent the Toffee's Premier League undefeated run, but if they are to do so, here are three of their stars who need to step-up to the challenge ...
"With Harry he wants to play in every minute of every game to give himself the chance to score the goals".
And with eight minutes remaining, Kane's chance came.
