Tottenham moved to within seven points of league leaders Chelsea on Sunday, courtesy of a deserved 3-2 win against Everton at White Hart Lane, with two-goal Harry Kane the star of the show.
The in-form Kane opened the scoring on 20th minutes, courtesy of a superb long-range strike which arrowed past Joel Robles in the Toffees’ goal.
The Spurs striker celebrated the goal with an impressive/embarrassing (you choose!) handshake routine with Dele Alli.
Kane doubled his side’s lead after the break, slotting home after Mousa Dembele initially pinched the ball off Morgan Schneiderlin. That goal put him top of the Premier League goal charts on 19.
Everton’s Belgian hitman Romelu Lukaku struggled up front for the hosts, but he eventually got on the scoresheet on 81 minutes, thus becoming the club’s all-time top scorer in the Premier League with 61 goals.
Alli then netted from a Harry Winks’ free-kick to restore the Lilywhites’ two-goal advantage.
However, there was another goal left in the game, with sub Enner Valencia beating Tottenham’s offside trap to make it 3-2.

The game would end in a 3-2 win to Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who go second and keep their rather faint hopes of winning the league alive.
Ronald Koeman’s Everton, on the other hand, stay seventh.
