Pugh backs Bournemouth for strong finish to the season

They already have 71 points, one more than last year's final total, with six matches still left to play and are one short of their Premier League record tally of 72 points, set under Andre Villas-Boas in 2013.

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min scores during the English Premier League soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth at White Hart Lane stadium in London, Saturday, April 15, 2017.

Spurs were in a similar position previous year but faltered at the tail end of the season as Pochettino's men went from second place to fourth in the standings. But it's a big game for us, a big game for the club, a massive semi-final. "But nobody expected Manchester United to do so at the end of the 2011/12 season".

"We have important injuries and we do not have so many players to rotate". But now we are focused on fighting our opponent when we play and then we spend time and energy to prepare ourselves to compete in the best way.

With Chelsea's form apparently wavering, Kane knows victory at the national stadium for Spurs would have the added benefit of sowing further seeds of doubt in the title race. A club legend. He scored goals week in, week out.

In the ongoing season, he has netted 20 goals in 24 games.

"Before the game we said it is important keep our momentum going." he continued. Four points is still a lot. Now, he thinks they have a fair chance against Chelsea. After a run of just one league win in five games, including losses to Watford, West Brom and most recently Crystal Palace, stretching all the way back to February 11th, there is a reason why Pochettino does not see Arsenal as genuine rivals. "If (Chelsea) fail we are waiting".

Bournemouth defender Steve Cook slammed the Spurs fans who taunted Wilshere by chanting: 'It's happened again!' when the on-loan Arsenal midfielder went off.

ESPN report that Wilshere left the stadium on crutches with his left ankle encased in a protective boot.

He said: "I think it was hard for all of our team, not just Jack".

Tottenham are reportedly ready to offer Dele Alli his third new contract in 16 months as they grow increasingly concerned over interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.
