LONDON (AP) — Tottenham failed to put a shot on target for the second straight game in drawing with Brentford 0-0 on Saturday to dent hopes of a top-four finish in the English Premier League.
After Arsenal moved into fourth by beating Manchester United in the lunchtime kickoff, Spurs fluffed their lines with a sub-par performance in west London and again looked devoid of all attacking creativity — like in losing to Brighton 1-0 last weekend.
It was a Premier League day that could hardly have gone any better for Tottenham.
With its 4-0 win at Aston Villa — inspired by Son Heung-min's hat trick — and losses for both Arsenal and Manchester United on Saturday, Tottenham became favorite to claim the fourth and final Champions League qualification spot.
BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — Son Heung-min scored a sensational hat trick as Tottenham took control of the race for a Premier League top-four spot with a 4-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.
After Manchester United and Arsenal both lost earlier in the day, Son’s treble and Dejan Kulusevski's strike sent Spurs three points clear in fourth place.
With north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal neck and neck, the fight for Champions League qualification looks like being as hard fought as the title race in the English Premier League.
Tottenham's superior attacking power might yet prove decisive in the final stretch.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — No wonder Pep Guardiola once branded Tottenham the Harry Kane team. No wonder Manchester City pursued four rebuffed bids to sign him.
There he was — still in a Tottenham jersey — in the fifth minute of stoppage time on Saturday, putting the ball in the City net for a second time.
The Premier League title race really is back on.

LONDON (AP) — Once Hakim Ziyech's curling, dipping strike landed in the Tottenham goal, Chelsea never looked back.
Sure, it took until two minutes into the second half to break the deadlock and the Moroccan was justified in ranking it “10 out of 10." But the space gifted for Thiago Silva's header from Mason Mount's free kick in the 55th minute to seal a 2-0 win on Sunday was a snapshot of this most lopsided of London rivalries.
LONDON (AP) — A superb strike from Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva’s headed goal gave Chelsea a 2-0 win over Tottenham to end a four-match winless run in the Premier League on Sunday.
