Pochettino delighted with Spurs performance

Spurs have won seven top-flight games in succession after goals from Mousa Dembele, Son Heung-min, the returning Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen sealed a dominant victory over Bournemouth.

When asked if goal difference will be important this season, Pochettino said: "It's so important".

Without a win in their last four games, Bournemouth were just seven points clear of the drop zone after the defeat and Howe criticised their failure to deal with set-pieces.

In the 55th minute, Wilshere's injury problems crept up on the midfielder as he was forced off in the second half with the White Hart Lane faithful cheerfully singing, "It's happened again, it's happened again, Jack Wilshere, it's happened again!"

Mauricio Pochettino cranked up the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea as he sent out a warning ahead of their trip to Manchester United, declaring: "If they fail, we are there". Four points is still a lot. "We've got to focus the players' minds that we're not".

In the title run-in, Chelsea must still also visit Everton who racked up an eighth successive home win when beating Burnley 3-1 to move above Arsenal and United into fifth, albeit having played more games than the teams around them. We've still got plenty to do this season so I don't want to think about it.


"We know we need more". That levelled the record total for a South Korean player in a single European season, achieved by Cha Bum-Kun at German club Bayer Leverkusen in the 1985-86.

Not only did Mousa Dembele score his first goal of the season, but substitute striker Vincent Jansson netted in stoppage time for his first from open play in the league since joining Tottenham a year ago.

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. Leicester has mounted a feeble defense of its title - sitting 12th - but it is England's last Champions League participant and hosts Atletico Madrid on Tuesday in the quarterfinals. Goals from Leicester duo Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy were canceled out by Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke.

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.

Kane is in second place on the Premier League scoring table for the season to date, with Everton's Romelu Lukaku on 23 at the time of writing.

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.
