TOTTENHAM 4-0 BOUNERMOUTH: RESOUNDING WIN WITH GOALS FROM MOUSA DEMBELE, SON HEUNG-MIN, HARRY KANE A


Tottenham made it seven top-class straight wins for the first time since 1967 and continued their pursuit of leaders Chelsea with a resounding victory over Bournemouth

The game was inherently over 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 rapid run and smooth finish.

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

The goal makes him the fourth player to score 20 Premier League goals in three consecutive seasons after Alan Shearer, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry.

Just minutes after coming on as a substitute Vincent Janssen completed Spurs' afternoon by scoring his second Premier League goal of the season in injury time.

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

Bournemouth, only managed one shot on target, and are now without a win in four matches and remain seven points above the bottom three with six games left to play.

Dele Alli focused his attention on the ball while looking for a pass as the Bounermouth midfield hone in around him.

My opinion: This is a more mature, efficient and refined Spurs side than 12 months ago, and this performance showed that perfectly. From the start they pressed their opponents relentlessly and dominated possession before they started scoring.
