Chelsea had the look of a champion again as it maintained its comfortable seven-point advantage at the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday — but Tottenham Hotspur will not give up the chase.

After Son Heung-min had scored twice in Spurs' 4-0 thrashing of Watford at White Hart Lane to cut Chelsea's lead temporarily to four points, Antonio Conte's men responded emphatically in the late game at Dean Court to move on to 75 points.

Chelsea was aided by Adam Smith's own goal before the outstanding Eden Hazard slid home a second and Marcos Alonso curled home a stunning free kick. Josh King scored his 13th league goal of the season in response.
