An Everton team that arrived at White Hart Lane unbeaten in nine Premier League games, with five clean sheets in the last seven, left in defeat with Harry Kane being a key in their loss. Harry Kane’s opening goal at 20 minutes paved the way for one the Spurs best spells of the season. The second half started just as well as Harry finished clinically for 2-0. With 10 minutes left, Romelu Lukaku pulled a goal back. Dele Alli made it safe at 3-1 on 92 minutes before Enner Valencia pulled another goal back seconds later, but Spurs had another massive three points in the bag.
Tottenham Hotspur superstar striker Harry Kane outplayed Everton’s Lukaku to lay claim to being the current Premier League's sharpest striker, scoring a brace in the Spur’s 3-2 victory against Everton on Sunday. Deli Ali scored the late winner for Tottenham. Kane claimed top spot on the EPL goal scoring charts, while manager Mauricio Pochetino’s Tottenham Hotspur side fortified their hold on second place in the standings and put pressure on leaders Chelseea with a ninth successive league win at home, moving to within seven points of league leaders The Blues. Despite missing 10 games of the campaign due to injury, Kane has amassed 24 goals in all competitions in the 2016-17 season — only four goals behind his haul last season with more than two months remaining to add to his goal tally. Kane had already sent Tottenham into a two-goal lead, including a spectacular long-range dipping strike, when Romelu Lukaku finally managed his first attempt on target in the 81th minute. Enner Valencia scored Everton’s second goal.

Soon White Hart Lane will be rebuilt, and the Spurs are treating fans to great memories of their last matches as Tottenham delivered their ninth straight Premier League victory at the old stadium that has been their home since 1899. The Spurs plan is to vacate White Hart Lane for the entire next season before they return to a rebuilt 61,000-seat stadium in 2018-19.
Mauricio Pochettino’s players are on a massive roll that it feels as though visiting teams are forced to play against Pochettino’s 3-4-2-1 system. Romelu Lukaku’s late goal threatened an Everton revival but Dele Alli’s stoppage-time goal turned the tide. Pochettino’s was obviously thrilled with Tottenham’s result that keeps them on the heels of the league leaders, Chelsea.
Kane began the game with three hat-tricks since the start of the year. He was denied in two attempts by the goalkeeper Joel Robles, with the second on 82 minutes a great opportunity. However Kane managed to defeat Robles in his next attempts and scored twice. The 23-year-old is now the outright top scorer in the league this season, with 19 goals, one more than Lukaku, and he has 24 in all competitions.
Tottenham policed Lukaku diligently, with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen keeping the prolific striker to only one goal.However Lukaku managed to race through to send a low shot past Hugo Lloris giving the Spurs a scare. Then Alli’s goal put the result beyond doubt. Valencia had the last word, when he converted from Séamus Coleman’s free-kick. But Italian Pochettino’s team had done already done enough to earn three points.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was pleased with the win and three points added to their tally. The Italian also commented on Hugo Lloris’s 200th appearance for the Spurs. Lloris has been one of the best keepers in the EPL this season, conceding a league-best 17 goals, with 23 clean sheets. The French international is a key reason why the Spurs have the best defensive record in the league and are undefeated this season at White Hart Lane.
“We played with a lot of confidence, always knowing what we needed to do in every moment and that was fantastic,” said Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. “The team showed big confidence and that’s important for us because now we’re at the most important period with the Premier League and FA Cup and we have that consistency and that belief. Overall, it was a very good win, a fantastic performance. Okay, in the end we’re a little disappointed to concede the last goal. The first can happen, the second when the game was over after Dele scored, I’m a little disappointed because we showed a lack of concentration and that can’t happen again, but without that, we played very well. We played a fantastic first half and the second half we dominated and played with good quality and a high tempo. I’m very pleased for everyone and we have to keep going.”
“Everton was a very difficult opponent, we knew that,” continued Pochettino. “We played much, much better and if you see the score, 3-2, maybe that’s not fair because that makes it look like a very competitive game but we deserved more. Sometimes that happens. The most important thing for us was to get the three points, important to keep our position in the table fighting for the highest position and to be there if Chelsea fail.”
“It’s amazing for him and I congratulate him. Hugo is a great professional, a great goalkeeper and it’s fantastic for him," added Pochettino about Spurs captain and No. 1 goalie Hugo Lloris.

The Hotspurs have stated they may hire David Beckham on a permanent basis in November - depending upon how things go and if he impresses during his two-month loan at the club from LA Galaxy.
Manager Harry Redknapp is convinced that Beckham’s stay at White Hart Lane will be a success - and is open to the idea of bringing him to Tottenham permanently when he becomes a free agent in November when his contract with Galaxy expires.
“It is a possibility,” said Redknapp. “We could do that for sure. It just depends on how it all goes.
“If he comes and does well then he will, I am certain, have lots of offers.
“They will want him in Qatar I would think. They will want him all over the world.
“But we would want him as well. I think he will be a good influence.
“David will be good around the place, good in the dressing room and good with the other players.
“He has great know-how and he he knows how to win games. He has been in teams that have won everything like Manchester United.
“He will be good for us on the pitch with his knowledge If we were under pressure and keeping the ball in tight areas late in the game. He has a lot to offer.” Becks looks certain to be at White Hart Lane this afternoon when Spurs face Charlton in the FA Cup third round.
Redknapp is sure Becks will be good for the Spurs.
“He’s used to all that,” said Redknapp, who is more concerned with the contribution that Beckham can make on the football side “He has had cameras and attention all his life.”
“It isn’t going to do Tottenham any harm in world football to have David Beckham. He will be good for players like Aaron Lennon. He can learn an awful lot from being around him. And David likes the way we play.”
