Spurs close to within four points of Chelsea

Tottenham's comprehensive victory over Bournemouth will open Saturday's Match of the Day after Spurs sliced Chelsea's title lead to four points.

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min, left, and Tottenham Hotspur's Vincent Janssen celebrate after scoring during the Premier League soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth at White Hart Lane stadium in London, S. "We've still got plenty to do this season so I don't want to think about it", Kane said of his achievement.

With 71 points, Tottenham are just one off their best-ever Premier League points total set in 2012-13 and they have six games left to top that mark.

Harry Kane scored on his return to the starting line-up as Tottenham brushed aside Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.

The win saw them cutting the gap to table-topping Chelsea to just four points ahead of the Blues' Easter Sunday clash with Manchester United.

"Tomorrow will be a very tough game for them but there are still lots of games to play. But now we are focusing on fighting our opponents when we play".

LONDON (AP) - Son Heung-min matched a 31-year South Korean scoring record as Tottenham beat Bournemouth 4-0 in the Premier League on Saturday to remain hot on the heels of leader Chelsea.




Resurgent Crystal Palace pulled off a similar feat at Selhurst Park, coming from 2-0 down to draw with Leicester and put themselves seven points above the drop zone.

Naturally, though, on his first start in nearly five weeks, Kane netted his 25th goal in all competitions this season three minutes into the second half.

In another milestone, Spurs have now won 12 consecutive home games in the top flight within the same season for the first time in their history.

Substitute Vincent Janssen rounded off the action with a fourth goal in stoppage time, the Dutchman's first Premier League strike from open play since joining previous year. One of the reasons why Spurs have conceded the least goals in the Premier League this season is because of the Vertonghen and he proved why he is arguably a strong candidate to be in the PFA Team of the Year.

After Borini's late leveler, West Ham finished with 10 men after Sam Byram was dismissed in the fifth minute of stoppage time after being shown a second yellow card.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku struck three minutes later for his 24th league goal this season.

Third bottom Swansea were unable to take advantage of Hull's slip as they lost 1-0 at Watford after Etienne Capoue netted in the 42nd minute.
