Cape Town - Tottenham
Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said his side deserved their
victory over Everton at White Hart Line on Sunday despite the visitors
making the scoreline look respectable in the end.
Spurs beat the Toffees 3-2 after a Harry Kane brace put the hosts into a comfortable lead an hour into the game.
Everton pulled a goal back with 10 minutes remaining through Romelu
Lukaku but Dele Alli restored the two-goal cushion in injury time. Enner
Valencia though scored again for the men in blue but Spurs hung on for
the three points.
The victory moves Tottenham to within seven points of leaders Chelsea, ahead of the Blues' fixture on Monday against West Ham.
Pochettino told Sky Sports after the game: "We deserved the victory.
We played really well, we were fantastic in the first half and dominated
"We played with a high tempo and very good quality, I am very happy. Maybe 3-2 looks tough but we were much better than Everton.
"They have been playing well and had some good results. It was a good
challenge for us, we assumed they would be tough and they were.
"But we played with full confidence and trusted in our way."
Spurs next turn their attention to the FA Cup where they face Millwall in a quarter-final clash on Sunday at White Hart Lane.
Kick off is at 16:00.
