Harry Kane struck twice as Tottenham Hotspur dealt a huge blow to Leicester City's hopes of a top-four finish with a 3-0 victory in the Premier League on Sunday.

Leicester's James Justin deflected Son Heung-min's shot into his own goal after six minutes and Kane gave his side a commanding lead with two quality strikes before half-time.

Bournemouth's five-year Premier League residency was left hanging by a thread on Sunday after a 2-0 home defeat to Southampton left the side three points adrift of safety with one game remaining.

Danny Ings scored his 21st goal of the league season and Che Adams added a second deep in stoppage time to hand the visitor victory in the south coast clash, after VAR ruled out a late goal for Bournemouth in a dramatic end to the game.
