Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane is one of the best in England

Erik Tate | 16 April, 2017, 03:09

Tottenham were convincing 4-0 winners over Bournemouth on Saturday to make it seven top-flight victories on the spin for the first time in 50 years.

Goals from Mousa Dembele, Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen sealed a 4-0 win for the north London club.

Bournemouth is seven points above the relegation zone and closing in on securing a third season in the Premier League.

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.

Spurs have now cut the gap behind league leaders Chelsea to four points, with the Blues to play their game in hand away to Manchester United on Sunday.

Kane slotted his 20th goal of the season just after halftime - his sixth goal in his last four league games - in his first start since a month-long layoff with an ankle injury.

It was nearly the flawless game for Spurs as it witnessed, four goals, a clean sheet, no injuries and even the heartwarming sight of substitute Vincent Janssen scoring his first ever Premier League goal from open play.

"Up front we could be better but our quality of play meant we had control".

Tottenham got the win they needed to maintain their slim hopes of catching Chelsea to win the Premier League title.

Chris Wood struck deep into injury time to slow Newcastle's promotion drive as Leeds escaped from St James' Park with a point. Newcastle are eight points clear of third-placed Huddersfield - who have a game in hand - with four games left to play.

"From the beginning of the season that was our chance to improve our mentality, our belief and I think you can see the group and the team have improved".

With that victory Spurs have now won 12 consecutive games at home this season.

"We know in the last five games, we will have to be better".

Leicester were crowned champions when Spurs drew 2-2 at Chelsea in an ill-tempered match last May.

And Harry Kane reached 20 goals for a third successive season, scoring on his first start in nearly five weeks after recovering from an ankle injury. 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.

Premier League top scorer Romelu Lukaku struck Everton's third, taking his season tally to 24.

Goals by Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy put them 2-0 ahead but Palace hit back through Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke.

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.

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.
