Manita to the Toffees, Londoners now at -3 from the Champions area: Keane’s own goal opens, then Son, Kane and Reguillon’s brace. Arsenal’s fourth place, which has one game less, is closer
All or nothing. Antonio Conte’s Tottenham invents another goleada and wins the monday night of the 28th round of the Premier League 5-0. Dragged by the usual Son and Kane, the Italian coach beats Lampard’s Everton, confirming the ups and downs of the last two months. In fact, from 9 January to today, Lloris and his teammates have collected six successes and as many defeats. Arsenal, fourth in the standings and in the Champions League zone, are now only 3 points away, even if the Gunners have played one game less. “Between now and the end of the season we will try to do our best, then we’ll see”, said the former Inter coach in the pre-match conference. Halfway through the second half, thanks came from the home fans, who sang “Antonio” after the 5-0 goal: the Lecce player thanks and hopes that the victory against the Toffees can represent a new, definitive point of (re) departure.
Back on the pitch after being eliminated in the FA Cup by Middlesbrough, the Spurs, who fielded Bentancur and Kulusevski from 1 ‘, took just fifteen minutes to pave the way towards winning the three points. At 14 ‘comes the advantage due to an own goal: Sessegnon crosses in the middle from the left lane and finds the awkward deviation of Keane, who hits the ball sending it behind his teammate Pickford. Two minutes later, Son Hueng Min – served by Kulusevski – signed the double with a goal kick from a central position. From here on, Everton fails to return to the game and, after the opportunities wasted by Son, Kane and Doherty, suffer the trio thanks to Kane. The number 10 of Tottenham gives way to a counterattack and is launched centrally by Doherty, face to face with Pickford makes no mistake and closes the game. In the second half, the match resumes exactly where it left off: 45 seconds pass from the referee’s whistle and the newly entered Reguillon enters the area from the left and sends Kulusevski’s low-shot cross into the goal. At 55 ‘Doherty brushes in the area again for Kane, who repeats himself scoring the 5-0 with a left-handed volley. Few emotions in the final minutes, with Conte’s team keeping possession and giving very little to the opponents. Everton, fresh from five knockouts in their last six league matches, now have just one point clear of the relegation zone. In the next round, the Spurs will be able to overtake United, currently fifth at +2.
