Tottenham’s Harry Kane admitted he should have notched a third hat-trick in four games after helping see off Premier League rivals Everton 3-2 at White Hart Lane.

The England striker took his 2017 tally to 14 goals in 11 games after a brace against the Toffees, but failed to kill off the game before a late Everton fightback.

Romelu Lukaku finished clinically to pull one goal back, before Dele Alli looked to have wrapped the win up, only for Enner Valencia to provide a late scare.

Kane admitted that while it was a good performance, he should have put Spurs out of sight.

“I wanted the match ball again,” Kane told Sky Sports.

“There was one in the first half I should have scored and one right at the end; I should have put my foot through it.

“I got two, but should have had the match ball.”

He added: “We did so well to win the game and get 2-0 up. We should have been three or four up and (2-0) is always a dodgy scoreline.

“Obviously they scored and it was a nervy last 10 minutes. I thought we deserved the win and we’re very happy.”

Alli, who scored his 16th of the campaign, added: “They are a tough team to beat home and away.

“They hold a real threat but I thought we dominated the game until the last 10 minutes where we got a bit shaky, but all round it was a good performance from us.

“I think it’s important we focus on ourselves and keep winning games. We can’t get carried away in the league.”

Victory brought second-placed Spurs back to within seven points of leaders Chelsea, who visit West Ham at London Stadium on Monday night.
