Tottenham easily triumphed over Everton at White Hart Lane and leap frogged Manchester City into the top four in the process. In form forward Roman Pavlyuchenko put the home side ahead with his sixth goal in four games as the Toffees failed to get into gear.
Luka Modric added an excellent second to put the north London side in complete control and left David Moyes wondering what happened to the side that so wonderfully took Chelsea and Manchester United apart in recent weeks.
The second half was a more even affair and Yakubu put the Goodison Park side back in the game but the away side were unable to grab a crucial second.
Tottenham 1-0 Everton (Pavlyuchenko)
Tottenham 2-0 Everton (Modric)
