Spurs send warning to title rivals

Published Add your comment

Tottenham moved within striking distance of Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City after coasting to a 2-0 victory over Everton thanks to goals from Aaron Lennon and Benoit Assou-Ekotto.

Knowing a win would put them level with second-place Manchester United, Tottenham started nervously in the first half, but Lennon cut in from the right after getting on the end of Assou-Ekotto's brilliant cross-field pass and slotted past Tim Howard to open the scoring.

The full-back then added a second just after the hour when he blasted a 30-yard shot which flew past Howard via a slight deflection off Tim Cahill.
