Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes consistency is key if they are to mount a challenge for the Premier League title

Following Sunday’s 6-2 thrashing of Everton, Spurs are now just two points shy of second-placed Manchester City with leaders Liverpool a further four points ahead.

Pochettino’s side have won seven of their last eight league games and will be keen to extend that run in today’s showdown against Bournemouth.

But Pochettino admits they must keep up this form for the second half of the season in order to challenge for top spot.

“Two seasons ago when we were fighting with Leicester we went to the end but the gap was so big” said Pochettino, according to Belfast Telegraph.

Cardiff City continue to refuse to pay Emiliano Sala’s transfer fee

Cardiff City will continue to refuse to pay Emiliano Sala's transfer fee from Nantes and plan to inform FIFA that the contract is not legally binding.

“Now we are close but we need to be cautious, go step-by-step, game-by-game.

“We need to be conscious about that, we need to fight a lot, and there is still a long way for work and to be consistent.

“Being involved in four competitions will be tough but are going to try.”

The Spurs-Bournemouth game will begin at 16:00 (CET) at Wembley.
