And Pochettino has admitted that he would be thrilled to see Manchester United beat Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

As half time approached Tottenham stepped back into top gear, testing Boruc through Son and Eriksen efforts in quick succession, while the latter also fired over when picked out in a decent position inside the box.

There was a collector's item goal for Mousa Dembele to get Tottenham up and running - his first since January a year ago - while Son Heung Min, Harry Kane and substitute Vincent Janssen, got the others as the home side wrapped up their seventh successive league win. "We've still got plenty to do this season so I don't want to think about it", Kane said of his achievement.

They have won 12 home league games in a row, their best sequence within a single season since 1919-20 and two short of their all-time winning run at White Hart Lane which reached 14 in October 1987.

Vincent Janssen capped off Spurs' afternoon by scoring just his second Premier League goal of the season in injury time, just minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Tottenham show no signs of slowing down in their relentless pursuit of Premier League leaders Chelsea after Bournemouth became the latest team to be cowed at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino's side struggled at the national stadium in the current campaign, with European matches played at the ground; Spurs exited the Champions League at the group stage and the Europa League against Belgian side Gent in the last 32. It was opened by Mousa Dembele scoring his first goal of the season in the 16th minute, ghosting into the penalty area unmarked to meet Christian Eriksen's corner. Captain Vincent Kompany headed in the opener in the 55th minute with his first goal in 20 injury-ravaged months before Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero scored.

A rebel official says at least 30 of his opposition fighters who were guarding the evacuees were killed in the blast. A similar attack took place in December when buses were burnt by rebel forces as evacuees fled the war-torn area.

Chelsea most boring team in EPL- Mourinho
Mourinho said: "First of all, some guys are fresh [Chelsea], some guys are exhausted [United]". Speaking to Sky Sports , Shaw said: "The criticism was very hard, but I've had it before".

With six games remaining, though, Sunderland is nine points from safety but it has a game in hand over Hull - the team directly above the drop zone.

The home side fell behind as early as the fifth minute when Andre Ayew got the finishing touch to Andy Carroll's cross-shot but Wahbi Khazri scored direct from a corner midway through the first half to level matters.

The result left Palace above the relegation zone on 35 points from 32 games, two behind Leicester who had taken a 2-0 lead through Robert Huth and in-form striker Jamie Vardy.

But the Black Cats snatched a point at the death, reward for their second-half endeavour, thanks to substitute Borini while there was further drama at the finish as Hammers defender Sam Byram was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku struck three minutes later for his 24th league goal this season.

Craig Shakespeare made only two changes ahead of Tuesday's home second leg with Atletico Madrid, when Leicester will try to overturn a 1-0 deficit.

"It would be fantastic if tomorrow night, after the game, the gap is still four points". Etienne Capoue secured the victory for a Watford side which is all but assured of avoiding the drop.
