Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane reveals they were determined to beat Everton in order to make the most of both Manchester United and Arsenal dropping points.

Spurs took on the Toffees on Sunday after United had drawn with Bournemouth and the Gunners had been beaten by Liverpool the day before. They claimed an entertaining 3-2 win to move back up to second place in the standings.

"We've got to concentrate on ourselves, build a gap on the teams around us and if Chelsea drop points then great and if they don't then we'll be second or third," he said.

"We were disappointed last year, as we all know," added Kane, who leads the Premier League scoring charts with 19 goals.

"We are in a good position now, trying to catch Chelsea, but it's important we build a gap between the teams around us as well and with Man United and Arsenal dropping points it was important we capitalise."

Kane also had some encouraging words for struggling teammate Vincent Janssen, who replaced him as a substitute late on against Everton.

"He's just got to do what he did against Everton, even though it might have only been three or four minutes at the end," the England international added.

"He held the ball up, won free-kicks and saw the game out for us and that's what he's got to do every time he gets an opportunity. He has to try to impress no matter how many minutes it is.

"I was the same, I tried to do as much as I could in that time. He's important, we are a team, we are a squad, every man is important."
