Another dominant White Hart Lane performance saw us ease past Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon to set a new club Premier League record and reduce the gap at the top of the table back down to four points.
Goals from Mousa Dembele, Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane and substitute Vincent Janssen secured the points and gave us our seventh straight win in the Premier League, the first time we have achieved that feat in the division. It also saw us win our 12th successive home league game to equal the second-best record in the club’s history.
The imperious Dembele opened the scoring in the 16th minute for his first goal of the season and just three minutes later Son doubled our lead with his 19th of the campaign, not to mention his eighth in his last six games in all competitions.
In the 48th minute, Kane marked his return from injury with our third goal and it was a significant one for the England forward as it was his 20th league strike of the season, the third campaign running he has reached that tally. He’s the first Spurs player to do that since Jimmy Greaves between 1966-69 and only the fourth player in Premier League history, following Ruud van Nistelrooy, Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.
The cherry on the cake came in stoppage time as Janssen poked home from close range to the delight of the Spurs faithful, rounding off the perfect afternoon at the Lane.
