Harry Kane marked his return from injury with a goal and an assist on Saturday as he pushed Tottenham closer to the league title.
Spurs who were handed another early kick off thrashed AFC Bournemouth 4-0 at White Hart Lane.
Mousa Dembele, Son Heung-min and substitute Vincent Janssen all found the back of the net to give the Lilywhites a club-record seventh league victory. This also marks the team’s 12th in succession at home – their best such run since 1967.
This masterclass Spurs’ performance increases the pressure on Chelsea, who head to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon for their game in hand, while Bournemouth remain seven points above the drop zone and are still not safe from relegation.
On Thursday, Kane was included on the shortlist of nominees for the PFA Player of the year award for 2017.
The England international has scored 20 goals in the league this season; making him the fourth player in Premier League history to score 20+ goals in three consecutive seasons.
Only Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer had managed to score 20+ in three consecutive seasons before today.
