Tottenham continues EPL chase by Beating Bournemouth 4:0

Tottenham made it seven top-flight wins in succession for the first time since 1967 and continued their pursuit of leaders Chelsea with a dominant victory over Bournemouth.

The game was essentially won in a three-minute period in the first half in which Mousa Dembele fired Spurs ahead from close range following a corner before Son Heung-min doubled the lead with a darting run and neat finish.

Harry Kane, making his first start in a month, made sure of the three points with a low finish just minutes into the second half.

The strike makes the 23-year-old just the fourth player to score 20 Premier League goals in three consecutive seasons after Alan Shearer, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry.

Vincent Janssen capped off Spurs’ afternoon by scoring just his second Premier League goal of the season in injury time, just minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are now four points behind Chelsea, who face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Bournemouth, who managed one shot on target, are now without a win in four matches and remain seven points above the bottom three.

Victories for Swansea and Hull on Saturday would draw them further into the relegation battle with six games left to play.

With this win Tottenham surpassed the 70 points that gave them third place in 2015-16, during which they challenged for the Premier League trophy until their 36th fixture – a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
