Spurs close gap on Chelsea

New Straits Times - - Sport -

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.”
