Tottenham Hotspur's tenacious chase of leaders Chelsea continued as they claimed a 12th consecutive Premier League home win with a 4-0 rout of Bournemouth on Saturday to cut the gap to four points.

Substitute Vincent Janssen received the biggest roar of the day in stoppage time as he claimed his first Premier Leasgue goal from open play since joining past year.

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. I want to do it year in, year out, and it's good to get three years in a row but we still have a lot to play for this season so I try not think about it too much.

Leicester suffered a dispiriting warm-up for their decisive Champions League quarter-final clash as they squandered a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.

Naturally, though, on his first start in nearly five weeks, Kane netted his 25th goal in all competitions this season three minutes into the second half.

In the 55th minute, Wilshere's injury problems crept up on the midfielder as he was forced off in the second half with the White Hart Lane faithful cheerfully singing, "It's happened again, it's happened again, Jack Wilshere, it's happened again!"

He has now reached the 20-goal mark in three successive top-flight seasons - the first Spurs player to do so since Jimmy Greaves between 1966 and 1969.

The 39-year-old did concede that nothing is a given in the Premier League and his side will have to produce better performances than they did against Spurs if they are to avoid being dragged into the relegation scrap.

Tottenham has a seven-point edge over Manchester City, which went third by beating Southampton 3-0.

West Ham, with 37 points, are virtually safe but Sunderland, with only two points from their last eight games, remain nine points short of safety with six games left.

Wahbi Khazri equalised for Sunderland direct from a corner in the 29th minute as the hosts recovered from falling behind to Andre Ayew's fifth-minute opener for the visitors.

Janssen then rounded off the win in stoppage time. Goals from Leicester duo Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy were canceled out by Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke. The Foxes are only 1-0 down from the first leg.

"It would be fantastic if tomorrow night, after the game, the gap is still four points".

Swansea is two points behind Hull in the third relegation place after a fifth loss in six games.
