Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino paid tribute to his top scorer, saying: “Harry is one of the best. He’s one of the best strikers of a ball, and his performance was fantastic today.
“It was a really good game for him. Is he the best striker in the Premier League? For me, yes.
“Maybe it’s difficult to say he’s the best, but he’s one of the best.
“Our fixtures are difficult. But you never know. It’s true that the gap Leicester have with us, Arsenal and Manchester City, we need to reduce.
“It’s true they have a good advantage, but we need to fight and believe.
“We need to believe. We have to keep our standards up and go into the next game looking to perform like this again.”
Beaten Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said: “Anything can happen with the amount of games still to come. There’ll be twists and turns still.
“In the two games they’ve been the best team we’ve played this season.
“They make the pitch very big, stretch you. They stretch your back four and, with Harry Kane, they can hurt you.”
