Tottenham, Man City win to put pressure on Chelsea

Harry Kane netted his third hat-trick of 2017 against Stoke last Sunday

Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke City- Premier League

He didn't have time to dilly-dally and talk about the intricacies of the 90 minutes or attempt to defend his questionable positioning for Romelu Lukaku's goal with ten minutes remaining.

There had been much debate in the build-up about which of the 23-year-olds has the brighter future ahead of him.

Spurs created more chances after the opener as Christian Eriksen dragged his low shot wide five minutes after Kane's goal while Victor Wanyama's left-footed shot hit the crossbar nearly immediately.

Asked after the match how it had come about, Kane explained - and worrying added we might not have seen the back of it.

The problem for the Toffees though was that Spurs came out fast at the start of the second with Robles having to make two good saves in a matter of minutes to deny Alli and Jan Vertonghen from scoring. Belgian Mousa Dembele caught French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin dawdling on the ball, allowing Dele Alli to poke a pass through to his team-mate.

However, major business groups criticised the arrest, concerned about the impact on Samsung and, more broadly, on South Korea. The scandal has led exploding phone and washing machine maker Samsung to hit pause on some of its corporate operations.

That's how the scoreline stayed, as City leapfrogged Arsenal into third with their fourth consecutive league win, and are now just a point behind Tottenham with a game in hand.

Kane and Lukaku then took a back seat as Alli and Enner Valencia got in on the act late on.

Both were fine efforts, but there was little doubt that Kane had been the key difference-maker in front of goal.

Despite these issues, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been a constant during his Spurs career, making his 24th appearance of the Premier League season and 200th appearance for Tottenham in his career.

With Antonio Conte's Chelsea side showing no signs of slipping up, Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United appear to be scrapping for second, third and fourth with almost a third of the season remaining. On the evidence of the last few weeks, the more pertinent question is how many more seasons Tottenham will be able to hold on to their star centre-forward.
