Christian Eriksen inspires Tottenham Hotspur win at Stoke City

Harry Kane says he scored Tottenham's second goal against Stoke Harry Kane is building an army of pundits to help him get his goal against Stoke back

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.

Christian Eriksen's second-half free-kick looked to have been headed in by Kane and the England striker lifted his arm in celebration, and made sure he told all of his team-mates that he had got a touch.

Stoke sit three points adrift from safety - which effectively becomes four given their goal difference - but even a point against their more illustrious opponents would be regarded as acceptable with four winnable games still to come in their remaining five fixtures.

Xherdan Shaqiri's first real involvement was to curl a pass behind the defence that Diouf chased, with Hugo Lloris' clearance cannoning off the Senegalese and back into his path to allow him to roll into an empty net.

Astonishingly, after 69 minutes United were in front, Sanchez again the provider as his deep free kick from the left was met by Smalling, who escaped his markers to thump past Ederson - and City could not find a way back.

The north London side are level on points with third-placed Liverpool and 11 ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea, who host West Ham on Sunday.

After 25 minutes City took what seemed to be their first step towards confirming the title when captain Vincent Kompany rose unmarked to thump home a header, and five minutes later it appeared all but in the bag as Ilkay Gundogan scored in style. "I think it was a massive, massive three points for us today".

Spurs edged closer to securing a place in next season's Champions League with a hard-fought win in the Potteries courtesy of two goals from Christian Eriksen.

Steve Mounie canceled out Jonas Lössl's own goal as Brighton and Huddersfield shared the spoils at The American Express Community Stadium.

However, there was an inevitably about Tottenham's approach and just minutes after the restart they carved open the Potters' defence to take the lead. "It would be fantastic to be in there the third time in a row and consecutive years".

There was also a win for Newcastle at Leicester, Jonjo Shelvey and Ayoze Perez scoring before Jamie Vardy's late reply.
