Spurs too good for Everton; City up to third

Tottenham Hotspur closed to within seven points of leaders Chelsea after a 3-2 win over Everton at White Hart Lane.

Spurs were in the lead as early as 20-minutes in as Kane finished brilliantly from 30-yards.

The ubiquitous England forward was on hand to punish an error from Morgan Schneiderlin to make it 2-0 – but Everton came on strong in the second-half.

They got themselves back into the match with just under ten-minutes left when Romelu Lukaku capitalised on a slip from fellow countryman Jan Vertonghen to convert.

Tottenham added a third in injury time with Dele Alli flicking home a third, but the scoring was still not complete as just a minute later Enner Valencia added a second for Everton – but there was no time to look for an equaliser as Spurs recorded a club record ninth-successive home win.

The win takes Tottenham four points clear in fourth, and seven behind Chelsea.

BetVictor now make Spurs 14/1 for the title but to finish in the top-four are as short 1/6 from 2/9.

Manchester City moved back into third and just a point adrift of Spurs, with a game in hand, following their 2-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Sunderland.

Sergio Aguero continued his brilliant form against The Black Cats when he opened the scoring just before half-time, meaning he has scored in his last four games against the Wearsiders.

The game was sealed on the hour mark when German ace Leroy Sane fired home after good work from David Silva.
