Tottenham secured a 3-1 win at home to Bournemouth on New Year's Eve, to leave them just one point behind rivals Arsenal in fourth place.
Andoni Iraola's Bournemouth have been the Premier League's in-form side of late, winning their previous six matches before Sunday, and it was no easy affair for Spurs.
Pape Sarr got the hosts off to a flying start after Neto's poor pass out from the back, as the Senegalese finished neatly from the edge of the box.
However, his afternoon ended in sadness as he was forced with an injury that could rule him out of the Africa Cup of Nations.
After Sarr's goal, however, it was the visitors who dominated. Justin Kluivert missed a good chance to level, while Tavernier and Christie also looked threatening with their creativity.
Spurs held on until the break, and then should've doubled their lead early in the second half when Son Heung-min's perfect through ball found Richarlison, but the Brazilian dragged the chance wide.
Bournemouth continued to persist, but Spurs' quality eventually proved the difference as Son made no mistake with a chance down the left-hand side to sign off in style before departing for the Asian Cup.
Brennan Johnson then laid the ball on a plate for Richarlison who, this time, could not miss from close range.
Alex Scott pulled a goal back for the visitors just before the end of the 90, but it was too little too late for Iraola's brave side.
Spurs end the year with three home wins in a row and are now breathing down the necks of Arsenal who are a point above them in fourth.
