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

Koeman added that he felt his side "showed good character" but said: "Overall, Tottenham were the stronger team".

This match was billed as the battle of the goalscorers, as the Premier League's two most in-form strikers attempted to spearhead their side to victory at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur struck another blow in the battle for a top-four finish but manager Mauricio Pochettino is refusing to concede the Premier League title race to Chelsea after a 3-2 win over Everton yesterday.

The important thing though for the visitors was that in that spell of dominance from Spurs, they only managed to get one goal and their was a couple of occasions that they have almost got in on goal which will give them hope going into the second half.

Everton host second-placed Spurs at Goodison Park on Sunday as the two strikers sit level with Alexis Sanchez at the top of the scoring charts on 17 league goals.

The Spurs boss also reiterated his praise for Kane, who is on fire in 2017 and has scored 13 goals in 12 games in all competitions, dubbing the England hitman "one of the best".

Tottenham had been cruising but it was a nervy conclusion.

Yet a clever free-kick poked in by Dele Alli in stoppage time seemed to have finished off the tie, before Enner Valencia's late goal ensured a nervy last minute for Tottenham, who held on for all three points to now sit second on the ELP table, seven points behind Chelsea who face West Ham in Monday night's action.

Kane is very much considered hot property around the world of football, but with five years still on his contract at Spurs many will be hoping he stays at the club for and beyond the foreseeable future. Verthongen: "Yeah, very good!"

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.

"He has got every opportunity - with the games coming up we have got to win matches, so hopefully the goals will come from him". I repeat that not only if he scores, even if he does not score.

"It's fantastic to make history with our supporters", said Pochettino.
