By Amir Mir
Tottenham picked up a comprehensive 4-0 win over Stoke last Sunday and they have now backed it up by beating a tough Everton side 3-2 at White Hart Lane.
These are valuable points for the north London club because it means they have now moved up to second place in the Premier League table.
Here, Football Insider looks at the three images that sum up Spurs’ week on the field of play:
It all started with Harry Kane, once again delivering the goods for his side as they aim to secure a top-four spot at the end of the season. In the image above, he is seen wanting the match ball after netting a magnificent 23-minute hat-trick against Stoke. It was the third hat-trick in nine games for the England international.
Prior to the game against the Toffees, there was a lot of debate about who is the better striker between Kane and Belgian international Romelu Lukaku. The duo started the game with 17 goals apiece in the Premier League, but it was Kane who outperformed his counterpart by scoring two goals to his one.
