Tottenham 3-2 Everton
Spurs goals: Harry Kane 20, Harry Kane 56, Dele Alli 90 +1:46
Everton goals: Romelu Lukaku 81, Enner Valencia 90 +2:56
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.

Manchester City 5-1 Huddlesfield Town
Manchester City goes through to 2017 FA Cup Quarter Finals
Man City's Sergio Aguero responded to his boss Pep Guardiola’s demands against Huddersfield. Manchester City superstar striker Aguero scored two goals to help his Manchester City side beat Huddersfield Town 5-1 to qualify for the FA Cup quarter finals.
Argentine striker Aguero wants to succeed playing football the Pep Guardiola way. Aguero scored twice and gave a stellar overall display in Manchester City's 5-1 thumping of Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup fifth round replay. Gabriel Jesus' arrival at the Blues sparked speculation about Aguero's future at City, with the young Brazilian starting ahead of him in the central striker role. But Jesus was taken out with injury and Kun was re-added to the starting line-up. Aguero seized his chance and scored four goals in his last two games. Speaking to the press after the FA Cup game, the popular 28-year-old said that his performance was “simply a result of carrying out his manager's instructions”.
"I am very happy for the result, for the two goals, but especially to get through to the next round,” said Aguero, “I only tried to do my best and what the manager asked me to do. Basically I try and help the team and try to make Guardiola happy with my performances."
The Argentine was Manchester City's best player in the 2015 season, scoring 26 goals and laying on eight assists in the Premier League. Aguero won the Golden Boot and was crowned the Premier League's top goal scorer after finishing the season with 26. Sadly though for the Blues, they lost their Premier League trophy to Chelsea. Aguero started 32 of City's 38 Premier League games, and scored at a rate of 0.79 goals per game. Kun's goal tally was five better than Harry Kane's, who finished the season on 21 after scoring the winner against Everton.

Manchester United celebrity superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace, his 25th and 26th goals of the season, to give the league cup win to United and a broken heart to a heroic Southampton side in a thrilling final to the 2016-17 EFL Cup tournament. United’s first trophy under new manager Jose Mourinho was earned in a hard fought battle with a result that was brutally cruel to Southampton who put out a massive effort against the titan side from Manchester City. Within a few minutes from the start of the match, Man United were out in front. Oriol Romeu was booked for a foul on Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired home an amazing free kick from 22 yards beating a slow reacting Fraser Forster. Jesse Lingard doubled United’s advantage before the break. Southampton equalized with two goals either side of half-time by Italian Manolo Gabbiadini, before Ibrahimovic had the last word. Southampton were outstanding throughout the brilliant close match that was decided by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s late goal. An on-fire Gabbiadini scored his fifth goal in three games for Claude Puel’s Saints.
