Ronald Koeman: Everton paid for their errors in defeat at Tottenham

Frank Lampard This exceptional Tottenham player gives them an edge in title race

"We make history with this group, they are good players and it is only the start of good things in the future", he told Sky Sports.

However, the match also happened to be a red-letter day for Romelu Lukaku, too, as the Belgian forward struck his 61st goal for the Toffees to surpass Duncan Ferguson as the club's record Premier League marksman.

The start of the game was very even as both sides weren't giving each other much time on the ball to get their passing games going.

"I wanted that third goal and I had chances which I should have scored".

Tottenham were cruising at the hour-mark thanks to Kane's double, the first a cracker from more than 25 yards out.

Dele Alli restored Spurs' two-goal cushion in stoppage time only for Everton substitute Enner Valencia to add what proved a consolation goal seconds later.

The Toffees have fewer injury problems, and have named a almost unchanged side for the third straight match, although manager Ronald Koeman has made one change with Gareth Barry coming in for Ademola Lookman. "We are in a very good position here".

"It is purely his motivation - to score goals - and if you ask any player, it is that great feeling".

The England duo are rarely out of sync on a football pitch and once again it proved to be the case on Sunday afternoon as Spurs claimed a 3-2 win over Everton at White Hart Lane.

Jermain Defoe hit the post for Sunderland early on before Aguero tapped in City's opener three minutes before half-time.

Spurs' 3-2 win moved them four points clear of Liverpool and Man City and cut Chelsea's lead at the top to seven points, though the Blues have a chance to rectify that when they play West Ham on Monday night.

Asked if it took them a while to practice, Alli said: 'Nah, it's quite complicated but I think we got the hang of it straight away'.
