Harry Kane extended his hot streak with a blistering brace as Tottenham beat Everton 3-2 to close the gap on leaders Chelsea to seven points.
Kane opened the scoring with a thunderous first-half strike at White Hart Lane and netted again after the break to take his goal tally to 24 in 28 games this season.
Everton forward Romelu Lukaku, Kane's closest rival in the race to finish as Premier League top scorer, got one back before Dele Alli struck for Spurs in the closing moments.There was still time for Enner Valencia to score Everton's second, but Tottenham held on for a third victory in their last four league games.
LA LIGA A smiling Fernando Torres watched just four days on from a sickening blow to the head as Antoine Griezmann struck twice in Atletico Madrid's 3-0 win over Valencia. Torres, a lifelong Atletico fan, was knocked unconscious during his side's 1-1 draw at Deportivo la Coruna on Thursday and spent the night in hospital, although thankfully suffered no serious injury. He was serenaded with a banner reading "the Calderon loves you" before kick-off and was soon on his feet in celebration as Griezmann finished off a fine team move after just 10 minutes. Kevin Gameiro's deflected effort doubled Atletico's lead three minutes into the second-half before Griezmann completed the scoring seven minutes from time.
