Tottenham win fourth straight on the road, gain parity with Liverpool

Tottenham win fourth straight on the road, gain parity with Liverpool

Christian Eriksen maintained his hot goalscoring streak, striking both goals in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win at struggling Stoke City to extend Spurs' winning sequence on Saturday.

In an entertaining match, Eriksen scored the victor from a free-kick before Xherdan Shaqiri was denied a late equaliser when his free-kick hit the bar.

Mauricio Pochettino's men were far from their best, but they did just enough as Eriksen netted a brace to move Spurs level on to 67 points with third-placed Liverpool, which had been held by Everton earlier in the day.

Eriksen's left-wing free-kick curled into the penalty area and Kane got close to it with his head, before celebrating as if he had got a touch.

"We want to finish as high as possible, we are in a good position but there are still a lot of games to play. Of course, we feel confident, we trust, we work in a very good atmosphere because we beat a very good opponent".

"It was my goal, it flicked off my shoulder and went in", Kane said.

"For 75 minutes, we were completely in charge".

"Two weeks in a row we come away with nothing", Lambert told BBC Sport.

IN has endured a hard schedule that included visits to Golden State, Sacramento, Los Angeles (against the Clippers) and Denver. Asked what he wanted to see, Kerr answered: "Just trying, cutting hard, driving, maybe boxing out once in a while".

"I couldn't ask for any more from the way we played".

"That's why we must be ready to match them with the same motivation and hunger", he said. His double against Stoke ensured his side took a big step towards finishing in the top fourKane or Eriksen?

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

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.

The Potters should have taken the lead in the 12th minute when Ramadan Sobhi released Erik Pieters down the left wing and the Dutchman's cross was on a plate for Mame Biram Diouf who blazed his attempt over from just six yards out.

He boasts a formidable record against Stoke, with eight goals in four appearances before this game, but looked a little rusty on his return from injury.

Son Heung-min wasted their most presentable first-half chance when through on goal, otherwise Stoke's compact defence limited their openings.

Dele Alli has been directly involved in six goals in his five Premier League appearances against Stoke (four goals, two assists).
