Tottenham 0-0 Bournemouth, Premier League LIVE: Spurs look to keep the heat on Chelsea and the title race alive against Eddie Howe's Cherries

55 28

Tottenham Hotspur can cut Chelsea's lead back down to four points, and heap the pressure on the Blues ahead of their trip to OId Trafford, with a win in Saturday lunchtime's Premier League kick-off against Bournemouth.

Mauricio Pochettino's men are on a seven match winning run in all competitions, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen et al in sparkling form.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, are seven points above the relegation zone with six games to go - they know they are probably one win away from guaranteeing a third season of top flight football.

Wilshere woe

April 15, 2017 11:29 AM

It was a comedy of errors for Bournemouth - Daniels shielded the ball out when it came off Arter, Pugh was nutmegged on the line - but the finish by Dembele was so powerful.

A standing ovation for Kane, who is kept fresh for the run-in by being hooked with 12 minutes to play. It has been a good return to fitness today, a club record equalling one.

Kane matches Greavsie

Game over already?Son is set free by a slick Kane back heel, outpaces Cook with ease, and tucks it through Boruc's legs. Spurs look very, very good. Bournemouth should be worried.

The third goal

April 15, 2017 11:24 AM

27 mins: Best moment of the game for Bournemouth - Stanislas powered a cross across goal, Benik Afobe couldn't quite get there. Encouraging, at least.

Eriksen again

April 15, 2017 11:23 AM

These two men will be crucial today for Tottenham

Kane on the prowl

April 15, 2017 11:18 AM

Sportsmail's Kieran Gill at White Hart LaneLove that celebration from Mauricio Pochettino. As soon as he saw it buried in the back of the net, Tottenham's manager started jumping up and down on the touchline.

Tottenham keep coming

April 15, 2017 11:17 AM

It has been as comfortable as Mauricio Pochettino could have hoped, and as troubling as Eddie Howe may have feared.

The first attempt

April 15, 2017 11:17 AM

1 min: 43 seconds gone - that means Bournemouth are doing better than they did on their other league visit to White Hart Lane last season.

Kane off

April 15, 2017 11:16 AM

Kane looked so good here - he made space under pressure from Francis, manipulated the ball perfectly with his feet, and the shot - with his weaker foot - was well out of Boruc's reach. Sublime.

The global game

April 15, 2017 11:16 AM

I don't wish to insinuate that today could be one-sided, but you can get odds of 14/1 on a Cherries win today.
