London, Oct 16

Harry Kane fired home from the penalty spot to boost Tottenham's Premier League title charge in a 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday evening.

It wasn't a classic by any means, but Tottenham had more chances, despite Everton also having their options before the break.

Kane opened the scoring in the 59th minute after a foul by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford and from then on Spurs controlled the game, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg sealing the win four minutes from time, reports Xinhua.

Tottenham sits third in the table with 23 points, level on points with second-placed Manchester City.

Leicester City was booed off the pitch after a 0-0 draw at home to Crystal Palace, leaving with just one win from their opening 10 matches.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes had the best chances for Leicester, but the draw was a fair result.

Elsewhere, Ruben Neves' 56th-minute penalty gave Wolverhampton a 1-0 win at home to Nottingham Forest.
