EPL: Spurs bounce back, Chelsea win again as Everton end winless run

Tottenham Hotspur bounced back from their Champions League exit within the week to seal a thumping 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The Premier League clash saw Spurs dominance in most parts of the game, with Harry Kane netting a brace and Son Heung-min also scoring.

At the King Power Stadium, Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho were in the matchday squad for Leicester as they fell to a home defeat.

The Foxes were beaten 3-1 by visiting Chelsea who seem to have found a new revival lately, having suffered a terrible run in their past 16 outings.

The hosts ended the game with 10 men after Wout Faes was sent off few minutes to the end of the game, but it was Chelsea who already sealed victory with a fine performance.
