Son Heung-min matched a 31-year South Korean scoring record as Tottenham beat Bournemouth 4-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

Kane is the first Tottenham player to score at least 20 league goals in three successive seasons since Jimmy Greaves in the 1960s. Saturday April 15, 2017.

Leicester was the undoubted pick of the neutrals as it fought off Tottenham's challenge to improbably collect the Premier League trophy last May.

"Our job was to get the three points", he said.

"Then we spend time and energy on preparing ourselves to compete in the best way". I want to do it year in, year out, and it's good to get three years in a row but we still have a lot to play for this season so I try not think about it too much.

Chelsea now travel to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon knowing they can not afford to drop points with Pochettino's side ready to pounce should Antonio Conte's men slip up.

"We want to win games and we have a big game next week in the cup and (we have to) push until the end of the season".

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.

Dembele struck after 16 minutes, slamming in a shot from six metres after Christian Eriksen's corner reached him at the far post through a crowd of players.

Tottenham has dispelled notions it is over-reliant on Harry Kane by continuing to thrive during the top-scorer's injury absence. But now we are focusing on fighting our opponents when we play.

Manchester City moved above Liverpool into third after they registered an impressive 3-0 win away at Southampton, with captain Vincent Kompany on the scoresheet.

Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero - with his 11th goal in 11 games in all competitions - were also on the scoresheet.

Twice West Ham led, through Andre Ayew and James Collins, but twice Sunderland rallied - the first time when Wahbi Khazri scored direct from a corner.

Fabio Borini pounced on Darren Randolph's error before Sam Byram was dismissed.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are hot on Chelsea's heels as the title race enters the final furlong and their dominant display at White Hart Lane keeps them in with a chance of being crowned champions for the first time since 1961. "I am very pleased, very happy and 4-0 is a good result for us but the three points is most important to close the gap".
