Full-time: Tottenham 3-2 Everton

A deserved victory for Tottenham who have now won nine home league games on the bounce. A brace from Harry Kane and a lovely Dele Alli flick gave Pochettino's men the points against an Everton side who simply left their fightback too late.

Romelu Lukaku made things interesting with 10 minutes to go while Enner Valencia managed to cancel out Alli's stoppage time strike, but Ronald Koeman cannot say his team truly deserved to leave White Hart Lane with anything but their tails between their legs.

That brings to the end our coverage, have a great afternoon.

Harry Kane


Everton's goal essentially a carbon copy of Tottenham's third. Spurs caught napping from a set piece and Enner Valencia - who has been bright since coming on - guides the ball home. All too little, too late.


GOAL! Tottenham 3-2 Everton (Valencia)


That's all she wrote. Everton caught napping from a free-kick, Winks sees the run of Alli who flicks the ball superbly past Robles.


GOAL! Tottenham 3-1 Everton (Alli)


Valencia almost makes something out of nothing as he and Lloris contest a ball outside the area, but the Frenchman just does enough to alleviate the danger.

Harry Kane is replaced by Vincent Janssen as we head into stoppage time. Everton were probably wishing their goal came earlier.


Tottenham make another change to wind down the clock as Eriksen is withdrawn for Sissoko. Less than five minutes of normal time.


Barkley is the life of the party and glides past Eriksen and Wanyama. He angles a teasing ball which is cut out by Alderweireld for a corner, which somehow results in Eriksen leading a counterattack. Everton regain bodies and snuff out the danger as Kane blasts over the bar.


Kane almost scored his third of the afternoon immediately after Lukaku's first but his dink was blocked by Robles.

Lukaku then holds off Dier and fires at Lloris, who gathers comfortably.


Out of nowhere, Everton are back in this match!

Lukaku bullies Vertonghen into a mistake, sets himself and fires low into the bottom corner. Koeman has thrown on Valencia for Gueye. Game on?


GOAL! Tottenham 2-1 Everton (Lukaku)


Robles cuts out an Eriksen delivery that was too easily worked from an Everton point of view. Spurs coasting now, and have been for quite some time in truth.


Dembele, who has just been booked, is replaced by Harry Winks, the serial substitute for Mauricio Pochettino. Just over 10 minutes to go.


Everton win a free-kick in a very dangerous position after Dembele pulls down Coleman. The Belgian is cautioned from his troubles.

Can Everton make something from the set piece? No. As you were.


Barkley comes deep to try and make things happen for Everton. He finds Coleman, who balloons an attempted cross high and wide.

Sums up Everton's afternoon, really.


Vertonghen goes on one of his charging runs but is eventually stopped in his tracks by a sliding Funes Mori. His compatriot Mirallas then tries to test Dier but his ambitious shot was blocked.


Barry and Davies replaced by McCarthy and Mirallas as Koeman rolls the dice.


Everton set to make a double change with McCarthy and Mirallas primed and ready. Surprised Lookman or Valencia are not yet being introduced, Lukaku is completely isolated up against three excellent centre-halves.


Easy pickings for Kane, absolutely pathetic from Everton, with Robles culpable again.

Robles rolls the ball out to an unknowing Schneiderlin, who attempts to lay it off to Williams. The Frenchman's pass is cut out and the ball makes its way to Kane, who was never going to miss in the mood he is in.

Can't see anything other than a Spurs win now.


GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Everton (Kane)


Vertonghen charges forward completely unchallenged and stings the palms of Robles with a fierce effort that earns Spurs a corner. Everton under the cosh again.

Wanyama manages to connect with an Eriksen delivery but he couldn't get his header on target.


Alli goes close to making it 2-0 with a header but Robles manages to gather. Tottenham beginning to turn the screw in this second period.


Wanyama receiving treatment for a knock on below his knee. Seems like the Kenyan will be able to run it off.
