Tottenham kept up their pursuit of Premier League leaders Chelsea as Dele Alli and Harry Kane struck twice in three second-half minutes to see off north London rivals Arsenal.

The home side could easily have been ahead before the break, with Christian Eriksen and Alli both missing close-range chances. The breakthrough felt inevitable, and duly arrived as Alli’s 21st Spurs goal of the season arrived via a predatory strike.

Just 146 seconds later, Kane tucked home a penalty after being fouled in the box by Gabriel to establish a lead that never looked like being overhauled.

Arsenal remain six points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City having played one game fewer.

Premier League Result: Everton 0-3 Chelsea

Premier League leaders Chelsea moved a step closer to the title as three second-half goals overcame Everton at Goodison Park.

Pedro’s 25-yard stunner, Gary Cahill’s close-range finish and Willian’s tap-in moved Antonio Conte’s side seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham, who face Arsenal later on Sunday. It means the Blues could drop three points in their remaining four games and still claim a second title in three years, even if Spurs win all of their remaining fixtures.

Chelsea had to be patient, with Pedro’s left-footed, long-range strike not coming until the 66th minute. Cahill sealed the win when Maarten Stekelenburg parried Eden Hazard’s free-kick onto the onrushing defender, before Willian slotted home from Cesc Fabregas’ cutback.

Everton had started brightly in a game that opened at breakneck speed, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin coming closest to scoring when he struck the post from a tight angle.

"I try as much as possible not to annoy God by saying I am honest. But with all modesty, I am a honest Nigerian and there are very few honest Nigerians."

On why people keep having the impression that he's corrupt, Amaechi replied; "When did that impression start? Nyesom Wike becomes the governor. He takes documents from Government house that people cant read, and says oh, we sold Gas turbines and disappeared with the money. He set up a panel of inquiry? Publish the report."

When asked whether he thinks the corruption angle came because he led the campaign organization of President Buhari, "When you talk about the PDP angle, they are bitter that we fought and led the movement against the former government and PDP, and we were successful to have removed them from power. If I was corrupt, why didn't President Goodluck prosecute me?
