The win cut the gap on leaders Chelsea to seven points after they were beaten 2-1 at home by Crystal Palace.

Such has been Chelsea's dominance at the Bridge this season that once Cesc Fabregas had put them ahead after just five minutes, it all promised to be plain sailing towards an 11th straight home win in the league for the Blues.

Wilfried Zaha spearheaded Palace's daring attacking display, canceling out Cesc Fabregas's fifth-minute opener before setting up striker Christian Benteke for the victor moments later.

Victor Wanyama hobbled off with a back problem before Harry Winks tumbled into the Burnley dugout after attempting to tackle Stephen Ward, leaving the field on a stretcher with suspected ankle ligament damage.

It was a first half devoid of action though Dele Alli did miss a sitter in the 33rd minute after good work from Christian Eriksen.

Second-half goals from Eric Dier and Heung-min Son handed Spurs a comfortable 2-0 success at Burnley as table-topping Chelsea suffered a surprise reverse against Crystal Palace.

Spurs arrived in Lancashire trying to catch Chelsea while also stealing a march on Manchester City, who do not play until Sunday, as the race to secure Champions League qualification gathers pace and they departed with both targets still in reach. Anything can happen so it's important to stay involved, to stay together and keep fighting until the end because we want to finish as high as possible in this league and be back in the Champions League.

The youngster, though, was bamboozled less than three minutes later by the skill of Coutinho, who curled a delightful shot into the corner before sealing his masterful display by putting in substitute Origi.

"I'm very proud because it was a really tough game for us", Pochettino told BBC Sport.

The schedule for the next month also raises the prospect that the title race could be prolonged longer than many expected, with Chelsea also playing Manchester United away in two weeks' time.

Janssen battled all day and had some nice moments, exactly what we needed from him today.

Liverpool beat Everton 3-1, Hull beat West Ham 2-1, Southampton and Bournemouth were nil all and Watford beat Sunderland 1-nil.
