Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen close in on incredible Premier League statistic during Bournemouth thrashing
Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen have developed an almost telepathic relationship over the past five years.
Mauricio Pochettino has practically built his Tottenham Hotspur side around the lethal duo, who helped the north Londoners put five past Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
