Spurs close gap on Chelsea
Harry Kane set his sights on reeling in Premier League leaders Chelsea after the Tottenham striker’s double inspired a 3-2 win against Everton yesterday.
Kane put Tottenham two goals ahead at White Hart Lane with a first half screamer and a clinical second half effort.
With 24 goals in 28 appearances this season, Kane’s purple patch has kept Tottenham in touch with Chelsea, who are seven points clear at the top before today’s visit to West Ham.
Although Chelsea remain title favourites, Kane is still confident Spurs can make the final weeks of the season difficult for their London rivals.
“It’s an important win, we should have won by more but it’s another step closer to the top of the table,” he said.
“We want West Ham to win against Chelsea tomorrow, we don’t normally say that.”
