Tottenham Hotspur Move Third at League Table

England forward Harry Kane scored two goals for Tottenham Hotspur, as Spurs moved to third place in the Premier League table with an easy 3-0 win at Norwich. Dele Alli opened the scoring in the second-minute after the low shot of Christian Eriksen had been blocked. Then Kane put the second from penalty spot in the 30th-minute after Alli was fouled in trying to follow up Kane’s saved shot. Man of the match Alli left the field at half-time due to an illness. Then late second goal of Kane from 15 yards sealed the victory for manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Alli has involved in 10 goals in his last 13 Premier League matches for Tottenham Hotspur, while Kane has scored eight in his last eight games. They are an imaginary football player’s dream combo. The victory shifts Tottenham Hotspur to third place, above Arsenal on goal difference, due to the Gunners’ goalless draw against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium. Norwich could go in the relegation zone if Newcastle beat Everton today.
