Harry Kane is so good, we can even excuse THAT handshake with Dele Alli

You can bank on a Harry Kane goal once every 99 minutes of Premier League action this season.

After hammering in a first half hattrick against Stoke last week, the Spurs striker scored another two today, as Mauricio Pochettino's side saw off Everton 3-2, to move back up to second in the table and closing Chelsea's lead to 7 points.

His first was a glorious strike from 25 yards, holding off Ashley Williams before moving infield, before firing a bullet that dipped into Joel Robles's bottom corner.

It was a strike so sweet it even made his celebration with Dele Alli somewhat acceptable.

Even Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp had to give it a go. 

His second was more opportunistic, taking advantage of some appalling Everton defending to put Spurs 2-0 in front. And despite Romelu Lukaku and Enner Valencia finding the net in the final 10 minutes, Dele Alli's goal in between those ensured the points would stay in North London.

The game was all about Kane though. Five goals in his last two games, making it 43 in his last 50 for Spurs in the league.

When he broke through in 2014 we all thought he would be a one season wonder, and despite a slow start last season he outscored everyone in the Premier League, hitting the net 25 times. He already has 19 this season, and that's despite missing a five game stretch in September and October due to injury. 

Elsewhere it was a routine day for Manchester City, who ensured Sunderland remain rooted to the bottom of the table with a 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light.

Despite question marks over his future, Sergio Aguero continued to look unaffected, scoring for the third game in a row, with Leroy Sane wrapping up the three points on the hour mark.

It's their fourth win in a row in the league, and keeps them just a point off second place Spurs.

And with Spurs and City looking so good, it now looks like being a straight shootout between Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United for the last of the Champions League places.
