Chelsea strengthened its hold on the English Premier League title with a 3-1 win at Bournemouth after Spurs showed they are ready to pounce if the Blues slip up.

If the Chelsea first goal was freaky - Diego Costa's scuffed shot went in off the head of grounded home defender Adam Smith - the second was sublime.

Tottenham cut the lead at the top following Chelsea's loss to Crystal Palace earlier this month but Antonio Conte's men have responded strongly with back-to-back victories over Manchester City and Bournemouth.

"For sure Tottenham have a great desire to win the title and we must have the same desire".

He added: "It's normal that when you play after your opponent that you will see..."

He said: "I had a link there, which was a nice thing, Clem sold it brilliantly to me and it was one of those".

"I love Tottenham, they're probably my favourite team in the league to watch", said Neville to Sky Sports.

Aguero squeezed in a second goal three minutes after halftime, set up by Raheem Sterling, who also created the third with a short pass that Fabian Delph thumped in for his first league goal of the season.

Last April, Hazard broke a 355-day top-flight scoring duck with a brace in a 4-1 win at Bournemouth and, after his fourth goal in three games against the Cherries, admitted: 'I like to score against them.

"And I have so much respect for him that that made me really think: 'Could I get involved and maybe help there?'" We must be pleased with the game.

According to the former United right-back, Mauricio Pochettino deserves the award and Tottenham are his favourite team at the moment.

Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has given a "masterclass" in coaching this season. Such struggles have prompted recent outbursts from both the manager and his biggest star about a lack of quality in the squad, which is rather laughable given that their wage bill is the highest in the world and they spent more money than any other team on transfers last summer.

"You look, for example, at my last season at Chelsea".

Tottenham's 11th consecutive home league win and seventh league victory in which the team has scored at least four goals put Spurs on 68 points.

"Said Hoddle: "(Alonso) and Moses, at the beginning of the season, people weren't too sure about the wingbacks, but they have proved themselves. "He is doing a good job, good work during the game".
