Tottenham kept their title hopes alive with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace thanks to Christian Eriksen's superb 78th-minute strike.

Tottenham struggled to break down an in-form Palace side for much of the match at Selhurst Park. But, despite a quiet performances by Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Mauricio Pochettino's side stayed patient before a magic move from Eriksen finally broke the Palace defense. The Dane exploited a rare bit of space in the center of the park, letting fly from 35-yards out and into the bottom corner beyond the reach of Wayne Hennessey. The result means Tottenham move on to 74 points, surpassing their previous best ever league total of 72, and within four points of leaders Chelsea.

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has added another PFA Young Player of the Year award to his growing trophy case.

The emerging superstar has seen no signs of a sophomore slump, recording 16 league goals and seven assists for second-place Spurs this season after winning the award last season since arriving from MK Dons. And at 21 years old, they may as well name the trophy after Alli with three more years of eligibility for the Young Players Award, which saw him beat out Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku among others. "I'm extremely proud. It's a great honour for me - obviously the second year in a row - but I've still got a lot to do, I've got to keep working hard. I've got to keep improving."

Danny Rose ha returned to training and word out of White Hart Lane is that the left-back could make the squad as soon as a week from Sunday, when Spurs take on rivals Arsenal in Week 35.

Spurs have been without England's first choice left-back since January but his absence has shown how strong of a squad they have, with Mauricio Pochettino tinkering with formation and Ben Davies offering very effective depth. That said, if Rose can make it back in time for the North London derby, even if only in a bench role, it would be a boost for the club's morale as they keep their sights focused on chasing the title.

Harry Kane joined select company by scoring 20 goals for a third consecutive season in the Premier League and added an assist as Tottenham continue to dominate at home with a 4-0 romp over AFC Bournemouth.

If it wasn't a perfect day for Tottenham, it came as close one could imagine. Mousa Dembele opened the scoring in the 16th minute, his first of the season, smashing one home after a Christian Eriksen corner. Heung-min Son kept up his blazing form, scoring the next goal after being set up nicely by Kane. Kane then got his goal early in the second half, collecting the ball from Dele Alli in the area and sent a left-footed strike into the back of the net. Spurs cruised from then on and could have scored twice as many goals, but Vincent Janssen scored from the bench in the closing moments, his first from open play in his PL career.

Heung-min Son scored twice and added an assist to lead the attack as Tottenham completely smashed Watford, 4-0.

In a match where Harry Kane made his return, Spurs showed how strong a side they have as they put up four goals before Kane came on to play the final half hour. There was no scoring in the opening thirty minutes, but it was typical Tottenham football, controlling possession and slowly chipping away at the defense. All the goals came in the middle 30 minutes, three in the first half, and one more in the second. The first goal was a candidate for goal of the season, as Dele Alli curled one in from well outside the box. Eric Dier scored next, smashing home after a cross deflected into his path. Son scored his first soon after, belting another goal from outside the box. Son then made it 10 goals on the season for the final score, tapping in a pinpoint Kieran Trippier cross. Tottenham may not have time to catch Chelsea but are certainly playing at a champion's level right now.

Harry Kane has trained successfully this week and Mauricio Pochettino announced in his press conference today that the striker will be in the squad to face Watford tomorrow.

Poch went on to say that he "hasn't decided yet if he'll [Kane] be in the starting 11 or on the bench", but it is fantastic news regardless for Tottenham, their supporters and fantasy managers across the globe. The FPL game will lock moments before team news will be released as Spurs play tomorrow's early kickoff, so bringing him in for that format immediately is certainly a risk. Just about every other fantasy format will have the luxury of knowing Kane's role and be able to react accordingly.

While Hugo Lloris remains a doubt as he recovers from an illness that kept him out of the midweek win over Swansea City, Michel Vorm also pops up on the injury report with a knee problem picked up at the Liberty Stadium.

Not helping matters for Tottenham is that they have the early Saturday kickoff this weekend against Watford, so they have very little time for one of Lloris or Vorm to be fit. However, Vorm finished out the Swansea game, so his knee shouldn't be in too bad of shape and, assuming a few days is enough time to get over an illness, Lloris will more likely than not be available. Should both somehow be ruled out, the gig falls to loanee Pau Lopez, who has yet to make an appearance in league play this season. Whoever starts makes for a good play with Spurs at home to the Hornets, even Lopez, so managers in leagues where lineups aren't locked before team news is released could plug and play one of Vorm or Lopez if Lloris doesn't start.

As expected, the nasty ankle injury Harry Winks sustained last weekend against Burnley will keep the young midfielder out for the rest of the season.

Tottenham's Twitter feed confirmed the news on Winks while reassuring followers that Erik Lamela's season is also over. Winks certainly made an impression this season, breaking into the first team and making a few league starts this season, getting pitch time ahead of the likes of Moussa Sissoko. Mauricio Pochettino recently pegged Winks as one of the great young English midfielders in the game. He should eventually become a name we talk about more frequently in fantasy circles.

After being frustrated for nearly 90 minutes, Tottenham came from behind with a three goal barrage, two in stoppage time, to defeat Swansea City, 1-3.

Tottenham looked destined to take a hefty blow to their title hopes after conceding and early goal to the Swans and failing to find an equalizer despite dominating the stat sheet. By halftime, they were at 75% possession, completing 358 passes to Swansea's 114. Spurs kept pressuring the Swans final third in the second half, but Lukasz Fabianski came up with a couple of top notch saves. Then, in the 88th minute, the floodgates opened. Christian Eriksen sent a ball toward goal that took a deflection and Dele Alli was in the right spot to tap home. With seven minutes of stoppage time, Spurs took the lead on a Heung-min Son strike, Vincent Janssen setting him up. Moments later, Alli slipped Eriksen in on goal and the Dane put the icing on the cake, slotting home for the final goal.

Hugo Lloris' name was surprisingly absent from Tottenham's team sheet as they are about to kick off against Swansea City, as the goalkeeper is out with an illness.

Michel Vorm will be between the sticks tonight as he faces his former club. In fact, there are five players between the two sides that once played for their opponent tonight. Victor Wanyama failed to recover from a back injury, allowing Mousa Dembele a return to a starting role while Heung-min Son is rewarded with his goal off the bench over the weekend by replacing Vincent Janssen in the central striker role. Lloris is obviously a key figure so the club and its supporters will be hoping the Frenchman is fit for the weekend.

Harry Winks is expected to miss the rest of the season after he was taken straight to hospital for tests on a serious looking ankle injury.

Having already lost Victor Wanyama, a minute before the break at Turf Moor due to a back injury, Tottenham were forced into their second change in time added on following an innocuous challenge near the touchline. Momentum sent Winks tumbling off the side of the pitch and into the dugout, injuring his left ankle. "He is in hospital now, doing scans," said Mauricio Pochettino after the 2-0 win. "Now we need to wait. We wish it is not a big issue and we hope it's not a big problem for the future for him." Vincent Janssen became the third Tottenham forced off through injury on 73 minutes, and the striker will be assessed ahead the trip to Swansea. However, there was better news regarding Harry Kane: "He is good, he's doing things on the pitch and may be back in a few weeks."

Tottenham knew they had a tough task in taking on Burnley at the fortress that is Turf Moor, but the Lillywhites were able to finally break through with two second half goals to help close the gap between them and Chelsea in a 0-2 final.

The first half went as one might expect given the reputations of both sides heading into this match. Spurs enjoyed the bulk of possession but Burnley did well to keep their shape and frustrate the Tottenham attack. Things took a turn for the worse as halftime approached, with both Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks having to be replaced due to injury. Tottenham finally broke through in the 66th minute, when Burnely failed to clear a Christian Eriksen corner and Eric Dier was there to score his first goal of the season. Ten minutes later, Dele Alli sent a low cross to the foot of Heung-min Son, who had come on moments earlier for Vincent Janssen, and Son tapped it in to seal the points. With Chelsea taking a surprising loss today, the title race has suddenly begun to heat up again.

Victor Wanyama was shaken up after a collision with Burnley's Ashley Barnes and was unable to continue with what looks to be a lower back injury.

Wanyama attempted to carry on initially, receiving treatment that included a cooling spray to his back, but after a couple of minute back in action, he needed to call it a day. Mousa Dembele, somewhat of a surprise omission from the starting XI, came on to replace him. To make matters worse for Spurs, Harry Winks was also injured just before halftime, taking the worst of an attempted tackle of Stephen Ward before crashing near the bench. Moussa Sissoko has come on to replace him in what is a goalless affair at halftime.

Vincent Janssen will be assessed ahead of Tottenham's match against Burnley on Saturday to determine whether or not the forward had fully recovered from a chest infection.

Janssen was named to the Dutch squad over the international break but his case of influenza cropped up just before the first of their two matches and he failed to make an appearance. Mauricio Pochettino offered an update on Janssen in his press conference, stating that Janssen is recovering but will need to be assessed before the match to determine if he can play a role. With the absence of Harry Kane and Janssen's current condition, Heung-Min Son looks certain to start in the central striker role, placing him firmly back on fantasy radars.

Tottenham officially announced that winger Erik Lamela will have surgery to repair a persistent hip problem.

The Argentine playmaker has been out since early November after suffering what was thought to be a minor hip injury. Nearly five months, a trip to Argentina and rehab in Rome later, Lamela is back to square one and will have surgery that will rule him out for the rest of the season. The winger made only 14 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring two goals. Said the club in a statement: "The player has achieve​d a good level of function, however he has been unable to reach the stage required to make a full return to training. Therefore, following ongoing extensive consultation with specialists, surgery has been agreed by all as the best course of action."
