Tottenham moved to within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea with a straightforward 4-0 win over Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham completed a run of seven consecutive top-flight victories for the first time in 50 years by beating Bournemouth 4-0 at White Hart Lane.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side put on a consummate attacking performance as they bettered their 2015-16 points total and equalled the record winning streak set by the likes of Jimmy Greaves, Terry Venables and Dave Mackay in the Spurs team of 1967.
The victory, which came courtesy of first-half goals from Mousa Dembele and Son Heung-min and second-half strikes by Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen, moved Spurs within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea, who travel to Manchester United on Sunday.
Dembele had not scored since January 2016 but he hit the net with aplomb after 16 minutes, before Kane’s flick set up Son to double Spurs’ lead, and the England striker scored his 20th league goal of the season early in the second half.
Janssen then rounded off the win in stoppage time.
Defeat left Bournemouth and their leaky defence in danger of being dragged back into the relegation scrap, while Spurs maintained the imperious form that is forcing their London rivals to keep looking over their shoulder in the title run-in.
