The most points Spurs had amassed in a Premier League season is 72, while the win against the Eagles moved them on to 74.

Mauricio Pochettino is looking forward to continuing Tottenham's Premier League title drive in the derby against Arsenal after defeating Crystal Palace 1-0 on Wednesday. The team are now showing we are ready this season to fight and, next season, we'll be...

Eriksen came to the rescue with 12 minutes to play, gathering Harry Kane's pass and arrowing a glorious shot into the bottom-left corner to secure an eighth successive league win.

Tottenham possess a rough run in, beginning against Arsene Wenger's guys, but Pochettino is happy that his side continue to be alive and kicking in the title race after Christian Eriksen's crucial late goal at Selhurst Park. Whether Tottenham lifts the trophy this time still depends on Chelsea dropping points in the five-game Premier League run-in.

Leicester's plight is perilous, with the ailing champions only six points above the relegation zone with four games to go.
