Son levels S Korean scoring record as Spurs beat Bournemouth

Harry Kane netted his 25th goal of the season as Tottenham thumped Bournemouth 4-0 to make it seven league wins in a row and cut the gap on leaders Chelsea to four points. Manchester City's Leroy Sane scores against Southampton during the English Premier League soccer match at St Mary's Stadium, Southampton, England, Saturday April 15, 2017.

Belgian worldwide Mousa Dembele drilled in his first goal of the season to open the scoring before Son Heung-min squeezed in a second from a tight angle.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has the character and personality to reach 30 goals for the season despite spending two spells out injured this campaign, according to his manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Kane played down his feat, insisting the only focus was on Tottenham maintaining the form that has seen them win seven consecutiuve top-flight games for the first time in 50 years.

In the title run-in, Chelsea must still also visit Everton who racked up an eighth successive home win when beating Burnley 3-1 to move above Arsenal and United into fifth, albeit having played more games than the teams around them.

"We expended a lot of energy fighting against Leicester, against Chelsea, against the media".

DH Matt Holliday (lower back tightness) missed his first game after being a late scratch from New York's original lineup. Tyler Clippard got his first save despite Piscotty's home run, striking out Randal Grichuk with two on to end it.

Goals from Phil Jagielka, Romelu Lukaku and own goal from Ben Mee secured three points for the Toffees. But any vigour Howe might have stirred within his team was immediately swept away as Kane made it 3-0 a couple of minutes after the break.

Substitute Vincent Janssen rounded off the action with a fourth goal in stoppage time, the Dutchman's first Premier League strike from open play since joining a year ago.

Twice West Ham led, through Andre Ayew and James Collins, but twice Sunderland rallied - the first time when Wahbi Khazri scored direct from a corner.

Son had scored four goals in three games during Kane's absence and kept his place in the starting lineup despite Kane's return, with Pochettino accommodating him in a 4-2-3-1. He did not feature in this season's reverse fixture in October however, which was then the first time Spurs had failed to score in a league game in 2016/17.

The Cherries managed to crowd out and beat away a number of corners and crosses in the opening minutes, but they would eventually slip up from set-piece.

Crystal Palace put further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone after coming from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw with Leicester.
