Big blow to Leicester's top four hopes with heavy Spurs defeat

Leicester City's Premier League top four ambitions have taken a big hit - after Brendan Rodgers' side were beaten 3-0 by Spurs.

All three goals came in the first half - Harry Kane, who was excellent throughout, scored a quick-fire brace, after an early own goal had opened the scoring.

That opening own goal came after Heing-min Son's shot took a wild deflection off James Justin. Leicester are still in fourth, but are now level on goal difference with Manchester United, who are hot on their heels.

United play West Ham at Old Trafford next Wednesday, before travelling to Leicester on the final day of the season next Sunday.

For José Mourinho's Tottenham, today's impressive win gives them a solid shot at European football next season - they are above Wolves in sixth, with Wolves to play Chelsea on the final day.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth's hopes of Premier League survival are in serious jeopardy.

Goals from Danny Ings and Ché Adams saw Southampton condemn Eddie Howe's side to a 2-0 defeat at the Vitality Stadium earlier.

Bournemouth sub Sam Surridge saw a 94th-minute leveller ruled out by VAR as Callum Wilson was correctly adjudged to be in an offside position.

That leaves Bournemouth three points from safety with one game left in their season.

Cherries boss Howe says his side won't be giving up hope of staying up heading into the final day.

"I just need to digest this game before thinking about next week. While we're still there, there's still hope, we just have to believe until it is mathematically impossible. You never know in football, crazier things have happened.

"But I'm very disappointed today because a big chunk of our destiny and future was still in our hands today, and that's slipped away.

"It is difficult. Usually we have been free scoring and creating a bundle of chances. For some reason that hasn't happened [this season]. We have worked to try and change that, and the best spell has probably been the last few games."
