Tottenham Hotspur defeated Bournemouth 4-0 to reduce the gap between Chelsea and Spurs to four points, pending Chelsea’s game against Manchester United on Sunday.

Tottenham are four points behind Chelsea and have a goal difference of 46 while Chelsea’s goal difference is 40.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is banking on having a favourable goal difference as the title race nears its end.

Speaking after the win against Bournemouth, Mauricio Pochettino was asked if goal difference is important, he said: “For me, yes. And for them, too. It’s so important. The only way to build that winning mentality is to always play in the same tempo and with the same focus and concentrations during 90, 95 minutes.

“Never give up. 3-0, 4-0 or 1-0, 2-0 – the team must forget the result. It’s important to always try to go forward, keep possession, score goals – that is the mentality that we are building in the group.”
