          Harry Kane scored his first goal since returning from injury as Tottenham boosted their hopes of European football with a 2-0 win over West Ham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

          Jose Mourinho's men, once again, lacked fluidity and imagination in attacking areas but managed to get in ahead after an hour played when West Ham midfielder, Tomas Soucek, inadvertently converted into his own net following Giovani lo Celso's corner.

          And with eight minutes to go, Kane received a pass from Son Heung-Min and finished superbly from the edge of the area, sealing Spurs' first win in eight games.

          Now seventh placed Tottenham keeps their European hopes alive, while the Hammers are only outside of the relegation zone on goal difference, having played a game more than the sides below them.

          Maupay penalty miss the only drama in a goalless draw between Leicester and Brighton.

          Earlier in the evening, Leicester hosted relegation battlers Brighton and played out a low intensity 0-0 at the King Power Stadium.

          The highlight of the game came after 10 minutes, when Justin James bundled over Aaron Connolly in the area. From the penalty-spot, Brighton's hero in the previous game with a late winner against Arsenal, Neal Maupay saw his penalty brilliantly saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

          With this result, the Foxes stay third in the Premier League, while Brighton collect another crucial point in their battle against the drop.
