Spurs uses improved mentality to chase Chelsea for PL title

Mauricio Pochettino admits he will be a Manchester United fan tomorrow after Tottenham won again to keep up the pressure on Chelsea in the Premier League title race.

Spurs beat Bournemouth by 4-0 goals to nil at White Hart Lane today, thanks to goals from Moussa Dembele, Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen. "We've still got plenty to do this season so I don't want to think about it", Kane said of his achievement.

Now, on Saturday it was no different as the 27-year-old came on at White Hart Lane for Dele Alli with his side a clear three goals up.

Chelsea can restore their seven-point lead at the top of the table though with a win at Manchester United on Sunday (16:00 BST).

Hull remains two points above the relegation zone after 11th-placed Stoke ended its four-game losing run with a win that was wrapped up by Xherdan Shaqiri striking into the top corner from 30 yards (meters) with 10 minutes remaining.

Kane played down his feat, insisting the only focus was on Tottenham maintaining the form that has seen them win seven consecutive top-flight games for the first time in 50 years. "But now we are focusing on fighting our opponents when we play".

"Now the pressure is on Chelsea to win at Old Trafford".

If Chelsea can be chased down in Spurs' remaining six games, Tottenham would be crowned champions for the first time since 1961, and etching another new name in the Premier League trophy.

Leroy Sane grabbed a second in the 77th minute moments before Sergio Aguero chipped in with his 29th goal of the season - and 11th in 11 games - to seal a comfortable victory.

Son netted Tottenham's second goal to take his season tally to 19 and become the highest-scoring South Korean in a single European season since Cha Bum-kun at German club Bayer Leverkusen in 1985-86.

He marked his return to the starting line-up with his 20th Premier League goal of the season after the break, turning Francis far too easily in the Bournemouth area and slotting home a left-footed effort. 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. The Foxes are only 1-0 down from the first leg.
