Tottenham Hotspur beat Bournemouth 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham hero Clive Allen has told BBC Radio Five Live that he thinks Spurs must approach the end of the season thinking they can win every single game.

Spurs beat Bournemouth 3-0 on Sunday afternoon, as two goals from Harry Kane and a Christian Eriksen tap-in handed Mauricio Pochettino's men all three points at White Hart Lane.

The result meant Spurs went back to within five points of league leaders Leicester City, and the title race appears to be a showdown between the Foxes and Tottenham, with Arsenal and Manchester City lagging behind.

With only seven games left to play, it's a tough ask for Spurs to over take Leicester and win the title, but Sunday's win and performance showed that they aren't giving up just yet.

After the game, former Spurs striker and caretaker manager Clive Allen spoke to BBC Radio Five Live, and gave his verdict on the display.

Allen suggested that Spurs were 'bright and clinical' against Bournemouth, two factors which were epitomised by Harry Kane's goal inside the first minute of the match, and Tottenham didn't let up from there in a dominant performance against the Cherries.

Allen was also asked whether Spurs can win every game from now until the end of the season, and suggested that's exactly how Pochettino's men must approach each fixture, and simply put as much pressure on Leicester and hope for a slip-up.

"It was a thunderous start with Harry Kane getting on scoresheet after 45 seconds, and they didn't look back," said Allen. "They were on the front foot, they were bright, they were certainly clinical when the opportunities presented themselves, and they were worthy winners."

"I think that's the way they have to approach it, they have to believe that they can go all the way winning every game to the end of the season and just see what's happening. There's a real confidence running throughout the group, they're showing no fear in the way that they're playing, and it's going to go to the wire," he added.
