Tottenham Hotspur have boosted their hopes of finishing in the top-four at the end of this season's Premier League (PL) campaign after their five-star performance against Everton. The Antonio Conte-led team scored five goals without reply to close the gap on Arsenal who are in fourth spot at the moment.

Spurs knew they had to win if they are to increase their chances of finishing at least fourth at the end of the season and they did just that. They are in the fight to finish in fourth position alongside North London rivals Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham United.

Everton were on the front foot in the opening minutes as they took the game to their hosts. The tactics from Frank Lampard and his Everton players played into the hands of Tottenham Hotspur and they were punished when England national team centre back Michael Keane diverted the cross from Ryan Sessegnon into his own net with 14 minutes played. It was two-nil to Spurs in a matter of three minutes with Son Heung-Min getting the goal off the assist from new signing DejanKulusevski who joined the club from Italian giants Juventus during the January transfer window. England striker Harry Kane added a third Tottenham Hotspur goal on 37 minutes to take the game away from the Toffees even before the end of the first half.
Tottenham Hotspur substitute Sergio Reguilon added a fourth goal for the North Londoners around one minute after he was subbed on as a substitute for Sessegnon before England international Kane sealed the 5-0 victory with his brace on 55 minutes. The second goal from Kane took him to 176 Premier League goals and ahead of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. He's now number six on the list of the all-time highest goalscorers in the history of the Premier League.
