Defeat for Spurs handed Chelsea a glimmer of hope in the fight for Champions League places after they came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2, but Liverpool strengthened their position in the top four as Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.
It was Salah's 30th league goal for Liverpool as he found the net for the seventh successive home league match.
Liverpool had beaten Premier League champions-elect Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate in the Champions League quarter-finals and, four days after their second-leg victory at the Etihad Stadium, they were equally impressive to Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe.

Salah also became the eighth player to score 30 goals in one season in the history of the Premier League. It (Rush's record) is also very close, it's just seven goals.

"I said after 10-15 minutes we will be champions", said Guardiola of his side's fast start.
"We played well today and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".
"The finish from Mo was a bit of an unusual one for him and one that maybe took everyone by surprise", midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added. "My own personal pride will try to drive the players to maximise every game".More news: Tax deadline: Things to know about filing taxes
