for tottenhamin their 3—2 win over everton to close the gap on leaders chelsea to seven points as adam wild reports. at white hart lane, two of the premier league's most inform strikers. calculating the goal—scoring achievement of harry kane and romelu lukaku this season, isn't easy. although it didn't stop some from trying. but there was another to add. harry kane's recent racket, almost as impressive as the handshake that followed. plenty for everton to discuss at half—time. most pressing, how to stop harry kane. they did have a plan, gifting him this kind of chance, wasn't it. easy to forget at times, but everton did have their own prolific striker. not many chances for romelu lukaku, but one was enough to give the travelling fans some hope. but that
was momentarily nudged to one side by dele alli. even a late goal never really looked like being another. a clu b really looked like being another. a club record nine premier league wins ina row club record nine premier league wins in a row for spurs, harry kane and delhi ali proving a winning compilation. it is another fantastic achievement for that group. we feel very proud about that, to break the home record. it has made history, started to make history with that group, the young players. it is only the start of the good things that is coming in the future. we know they are strong, but they have two or three seasons in a row with the same players and they have bought some better players. it is all about bought some better players. it is allabout timing. bought some better players. it is all about timing. that is what we need to have in everton. if we get
the time to improve, that is the next step for the club. 0k, in some aspects, we saw the difference today oi'i aspects, we saw the difference today on the pitch. in the second premier league game today manchester city moved to within a point of tottenham and eight of chelsea. pep guadiola's side 2—0 winners at sunderland, who stay rooted to the bottom of the table. hannah lupton watched this one. sometimes a pep talk goes a long way. but with david moyes' sunderland, propping up the premier league, they need more than words. jermain defoe scored eight times against manchester city and came within a whisker of his night, as sunderland limited them in the first half. the danger is, if you don't ta ke half. the danger is, if you don't take your chances against pep guardiola's site, they can do this... carved up just guardiola's site, they can do this... carved upjust before guardiola's site, they can do this... carved up just before the break, sergio aguero, i—0. his 23rd of the season. give david silva freedom, there can be trouble. here,
it ended with manchester city's second. this place and position proving too much for sunderland and some of their fans. defoe did proving too much for sunderland and some of theirfans. defoe did manage to find the back of the net, but found the offside flag raised and a glimmer of hope dashed. city could have had a third butjordan pickford put a stop to that. for straight league wins for city, but it doesn't mean you escape are talking to from p9p- we expect how aggressive sunderland would play. very good first goal, but go to half—time with 1—0, it is different to draw or losing and the second half, we played really good.
i don't think you can blame the players that any of that. we lacked quality. when we did get the ball back, we gave it away and we had to win it back again. but their energy, the game plan, we tried to do everything we could to get something out of the game. it will be an old firm derby in the semi—final of the scottish cup after celtic thrashed st mirren 4—1 in the last 8 with aberdeen drawn away at hibs after their 1—0 victory over partick thistle. nick parrort watched the action at celtic park. and impeccable tribute mark the passing of celtic alleging, tommy gammell. the examples he set have proved tough to follow and traditionally, those players did not look like players on a 33 match unbeaten run. they fell behind despite st mirren being a0 to one. harry davies was keen to upset them. after putting the visitors ahead, the defender was a resolute at the
back. but you would need a miracle to hold off a team of celtic‘s quality and saints couldn't work one. just before the half—hour mark, their resilience was broken. 73 seconds later, the match swung in the opposite direction as scott sinclair showed the class between the two sides. the englishman set up moussa dembele a. bank with its rounded it off as celtic continued their march towards the trouble. the west indies have set england's cricketers a target of 226 to win the 2nd one day international in antigua. a win would seal the three match series for eoin morgan's side. patrick geary reports. tips for tourists in antigua. stay in the shade, dress appropriately, ta ke in the shade, dress appropriately, take early wickets. england got a couple, steven finn's 99th and 100th of his international career. the prevailing wind was against the west
indies. they had to force things. the ball was swinging, the ball wasn't. batting was a challenge. mr gi wasn't. batting was a challenge. mr g1 could make you look silly with the bat or in the field. this left an injury to more than ben stokes' pride. he was back out in time to see craig brathwaite get out. no reprieve, bowled by moeen ali. jason mohammad took chances, but played the odds more impressively. his 50 saved west indies from surrender. when he went, no one adequately replaced him. west indies founding and had a plan for everything. this catch, two man job and had a plan for everything. this catch, two manjob and another step body would have been six. england are making the impressive look simple. england are 87—2 in reply. they need 226 to win in antigua. in rugby union's aviva premiership, worcester warriors moved seven points clear of relegation rivals
