Joel Robles will want this one back, but there’s no guarantee he’d save it given another chance.

Tottenham Hotspur went in front at White Hart Lane bang on 20 minutes as their main man Harry Kane ripped off a speculative effort that ended up as much more than that.

The opener came as Kane possessed the ball into the attacking third, and when nobody closed him down, he had a go on the Everton net. The ball wasn’t destined for the top corner, but it didn’t matter as Robles was slightly out of position, and Kane took advantage with the shot that snuck inside the left post and rippled the back of the net.

The goal is the eleventh for Kane in his last 10 matches across all competitions, and his 18th of the Premier League season, which leads the league.

Kane’s counterpart across the field in Romelu Lukaku hasn’t had much delivery, with Spurs on the front foot following the goal. Tottenham is looking to close the gap with Chelsea to just seven points if they can push forward for the victory.
