EPL: Spurs hold title race lively after Leicester'south fifth straight win

Tottenham Hotspur hammered late arriving Manchester United 3-0 in the English Premier League Sun but is still seven points behind runaway boss Leicester with games running out.

Leicester'south earlier 2-0 win at relegation struggler Sunderland temporarily opened up a 10-point gap but Tottenham responded in some fashion with its first residence league win over United in fifteenth years.

"The performance was perfect in the second half," said Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The visitor was caught in heavy London traffic on the way to White Hart Lane, reaching the ground with only fifteen minutes to the scheduled kick off, which was delayed for half an hour.

United manager Louis van Gaal was clearly miserable with the situation, but despite his team'south preparation being disrupted it made the stronger start in a key fixture for both.

Lamela, fully atoning for his first half miss, then picked out Toby Alderweireld with a free kick and the detender headed residence the second.

Lamela'south afternoon was complete as he completed a spell of three goals in six minutes by converting Danny Rose'south low cross.

"We knew how excellent the opposition were and it was necessary that we hold on winning games," England midfielder Alli told Sky Sports, but it's only five games to create up the deficit.

The beat has dealt a serious blow to United'south hopes of a top four Champions League qualifying spot, four points adrift of city rival Manchester City, with both having six games left.

By contrast, Leicester'south fairytale continues, with the later result ensuring it'll at minimum finish in that top four.

That'd be the very minimum it could expect, just three wins from the title for the 5.000-1 outsiders at the start of the season.

The Foxes Italian manager Claudio Ranieri was near to tears as he spoke about its win at the Stadium of Light, sealed by two Jamie Vardy goals in the second half..

It was a typically resolute performance from Leicester, "solid" according to Ranieri, but sealed a fifth consecutive EPL victory.

"You create this work for the emotion you perceive interior but it's challenging for me to tell what kind of emotion," he told BBC Sport.

Sunderland, still four points adrift of safety, pressed tough for an opener, but fell behind to a trademark Leicester goal, Danny Drinkwater finding England striker Vardy to race clear to score in the sixty-sixth minute.

Jack Rodwell wasted a golden chance to level for the Black Cats before Vardy stole way again for his twenty-first League goal of the season and first from open play in the league for two months.

"It's necessary for Jamie Vardy to score because he made some excellent assists in the latest game but he's our goalscorer and he needed to score again and I'm very pleased with him," added Ranieri.

Sunday'south other game saw Liverpool warm up for its crucial Europa League quarterfinal residence tie with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday with a 4-1 thumping of Stoke City.
