EPL: Spurs set to compound Stoke woes

EPL: Spurs set to compound Stoke woes

Stoke, who had seen Kane score eight times again them in their previous four games against Spurs, hit the crossbar through a Shaqiri free-kick but were unable to get another equaliser and they remain in deep trouble.

Pochettino's side now sit in fourth position in the Premier League table, just four points behind second placed Manchester United, and there is a genuine feeling emanating from the club that they are on the verge of achieving something special.

Harry Kane is adamant Tottenham's victor in their 2-1 triumph at Stoke City on Saturday should have been given to him instead of Christian Eriksen.

Harry Kane made his return for Spurs after almost a month out with injury but it was Eriksen who orchestrated the victory with two goals in 11 second-half minutes, taking his goal tally to five in three games in all competitions. "I am absolutely OK, it's not the best day in my life, but let's carry on", he told the BBC.

The second half produced little in the way of incident - but with four minutes to go Everton were within a whisker of winning as Cenc Tosun's header drifted wide and then Dominic Calvert-Lewin fired off target.

Jonjo Shelvey put Newcastle ahead in the 18th minute with his first Premier League goal since November 2015.

Mauricio Pochettino is anxious to keep Tottenham Hotspur's focus on tonight's trip to face Stoke City but there is no doubt last weekend's win at Chelsea has ignited debate about the club's future.

Yet the majority of the bet365 Stadium was silenced seven minutes into the second half when Eriksen continued his fine form in front of goal.

There is no evidence that the addition of a citizenship question will result in massive under-reporting of immigrants. Between 2000 and 2014, Seattle's immigrant population grew 20% compared to 14% for the overall population.

In between Stoke had levelled through Mame Diouf, but the loss means they are four points from safety with five games to go.

Spurs could've been 1-0 up when Dele Alli spied Heung-Min Son, but the South Korean's effort was denied by in-form Jack Butland.

"The effort and commitment I cannot ask more of, we are just not getting the breaks".

Man of the match - Christian Eriksen (Tottenham)Christian Eriksen has scored five goals in his last three appearances.

"It was tough. We were better but suffered a lot and had to fight for the three points".

Eriksen added: "He celebrated like it was his goal so I will have to take his word for it".

Alli has provided more league assists this season than in any other campaign (10).
