Commentary

That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
Tottenham romp to a superb 5-1 victory over Stoke at Wembley, a dominant performance and a much needed three points for Spurs after a couple of poor results in the Premier League. Spurs went into half-time just one-nil up after a Shawcross own goal, but the floodgates opened after the break, with Son, Eriksen and Kane with two goals. The Potters skipper pulled one back late on, but it was only a consolation strike for the visitors.
FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM 5-1 STOKE
90' + 2' That's the full-time whistle!
90' There will be a minimum of two minutes of added time played here.
90' GREAT SAVE! Butland pulls off a superb stop to deny Kane a hat-trick and Spurs a sixth goal! More excellent build-up play by Spurs and Kane was played through but Butland rushed off his line to make the save.
88' Just a couple of minutes left on the clock here, the Stoke players will be eager to hear the final whistle as Spurs continue to press forward in search of a sixth goal. Tottenham will move up to fifth in the table, ahead of Arsenal who face Southampton tomorrow.
Llorente
Son Heung-Min
86' Third and final for Tottenham, with Heung-Min Son coming off and he has been replaced by Fernando Llorente. A brilliant performance by Son today, a goal and two assists.
83' Mark Hughes' side have now conceded 35 goals this season, the worst record in the Premier League, overtaking West Ham today for that unwanted record.
I. Afellay
J. Allen
80' Just before the set piece, Stoke made their final change of the afternoon, with Joe Allen coming off and he was replaced by Ibrahim Afellay.
D. Fletcher
Assist
80' Fletcher with a good ball into the box from the set-piece, and the Stoke skipper did well with plenty of Spurs players around him to get his head on that and pull a goal back for Stoke.
R. Shawcross
Goal
80' STOKE PULL ONE BACK! Shawcross makes up for his earlier own goal which gave Spurs the lead, he powers a header into the back of the net from a corner. Lloris came storming out of his goal to try and punch the ball clear but he missed it and Shawcross just had to head it on target, a consolation goal for the Potters.
M. Sissoko
H. Winks
78' A standing ovation for Harry Winks as he leaves the pitch after a superb performance in midfield, he is replaced by Moussa Sissoko.
G. Cameron
X. Shaqiri
75' Here is another Stoke change, with Xherdan Shaqiri being replaced by Geoff Cameron.
Son Heung-Min
Assist
74' Son started the counter-attack and picked the right pass to Eriksen, who was in the best position out of the couple of Spurs players who had sprinted forward to join in the attack.
C. Eriksen
Goal
74' GOOOAAALLL! FIVE-NIL! Eriksen getting involved in the goals to pile more misery on the Potters! It came straight from a Stoke corner, breaking forward on the counter-attack and Son played the ball straight into the feet of Eriksen who then only had the keeper to beat and he comfortably slotted it into the back of the net.
72' Tottenham are still pressing forward and dominating the game here, they want more goals! Stoke are offering nothing going forward themselves and will just be aiming to come away from this game having just conceded the four goals.
P. Crouch
T. Edwards
70' Stoke make their first change, with Thomas Edwards coming off and he is replaced by Peter Crouch. The striker needs one goal to become Stoke's outright all-time leading Premier League scorer, he is currently level with Jonathan Walters on 43 goals.
E. Lamela
D. Alli
67' Tottenham make their first substitution of the afternoon, with Dele Alli coming off and he has been replaced by Erik Lamela.
M. Dembélé
Yellow Card
66' Mousa Dembélé is shown the first yellow card of the game, after complaining about a foul given on Alli.
H. Kane
Goal
65' TOTTENHAM HAVE FOUR! Kane with his second of the game to make it four-nil at Wembley and a great performance by Spurs. The ball broke free to him on the edge of the area after a tussle with Son and Shawcross, the striker then just strolls onto the ball and calmly curls the ball into the bottom right-hand corner. Make that eight goals in four appearance against Stoke!
64' STAT: Harry Kane has now scored 32 Premier League goals in 2017. The only three players to have scored more in a calendar year, plus Kane has scored seven goals in four league appearances against Stoke.
61' GREAT SAVE! Lloris is forced into making a terrific save to keep a clean sheet and deny Shaqiri a goal for Stoke. The Potters broke forward with pace and caught Spurs napping at the back, Shaqiri went for goal himself with not too many other options and his low effort almost snuck into the bottom corner, but the Spurs skipper saved well with his feet.
59' If Spurs can score another goal here, it would make it four consecutive victories over Stoke by that margin of goals. A very impressive stat and one that the hosts look highly likely to achieve today. Tottenham have dominated this second half and look assured of the three points now.
57' Stoke have 16 points after 15 matches, their lowest tally at this stage of a Premier League season.They have only managed two wins and 10 points from their last 15 away games, and lost 12 of their last 19.
H. Kane
Goal
54' ANOTHER SPURS GOAL! Harry Kane finally has his goal this afternoon after a couple of misses today. A powerful header from just a couple of yards out after a good cross into the area by Davies from the left, and the header gave the Stoke keeper no chance and Tottenham now lead three-nil, with the game surely wrapped up.
B. Davies
Assist
54' Davies was allowed far too much time and space to whip his cross into the box and pick Kane out there, with the Spurs striker meeting the cross perfectly to power it into the goal.
Son Heung-Min
Goal
53' GOOOAAALLL SPURS DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! Son times his run to perfection behind the Stoke defence, there is no one near him and he only has Butland to beat and he fires his low shot past the keeper easily. Winks played a great ball to Alli in the centre of midfield, he turned and spotted Son making the run in-behind, playing a inch-perfect pass to his teammate.
D. Alli
Assist
53' Alli put just enough pace on the ball for Son to easily run onto it, he only had to take a touch and then fire a low shot past Butland. Son has arguably been the best player on the pitch today and he gets his reward.
50' CHANCE STOKE! The first real opportunity of the game for the Potters and it falls to Shawcross in the box after a Shaqiri free-kick, the skipper fires a left-footed volley at goal, but it is straight at Hugo Lloris and he makes a comfortable save.
47' GREAT CHANCE! Kane with another huge opportunity to score today and double his sides lead! Spurs earned themselves an early corner, it was whipped into the penalty area and bounced around dangerous, with Stoke failing to get it under control and it eventually falls to Kane just a couple of yards out but he fires his shot high over the crossbar! Superb chance.
46' The second half is underway!
Just the one goal lead for Tottenham at the break after having a number of chances to score many more, through Kane and Son. Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross put the ball into the back of his own net, since the goal Spurs have dominated and could've finished the game off. However, the Potters are still in the game at just one-nil and there is still hope for them after the break.
HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-0 STOKE
45' + 1' That's the half-time whistle!
45' There will be a minimum of one minute added time played here.
43' Better from Stoke in the dying minutes of the first-half, they have played a few passes together and trying to break forward with pace. Shaqiri and Diouf holding up the ball well and waiting for reinforcements from midfield. However, their good play doesn't end with a goalscoring chance as Spurs get numbers back and clear the danger.
41' Not long to go until half-time now, can Spurs double their lead before the break as they are continuing to press forward and are now creating a lot more chances.
39' Wembley is a good omen for Stoke, as they have won four of their five games at the rebuilt Wembley Stadium, although they lost their most recent game at the ground against Manchester City in the 2011 FA Cup final.
36' HOW DID HE MISS? Kane with a huge opportunity to double Tottenham's lead here, Son with a perfect ball in behind the defence to Kane who is unmarked and he only has Butland to beat, but he fires his effort wide by inches! It looked like a certain goal.
34' CHANCE SPURS! Kane finally involved in a chance and goes close to doubling their lead. The striker sneaks in behind and gets on the end of Son's deep cross and his header goes narrowly wide of the post. However, the linesman has his flag up for offside anyway.
32' Decent chance! Dembele didn't have much on going forward and instead of playing a forward pass he fires a low shot at the Stoke goal, it goes through a couple of players and Butland opts to push it away and out of danger, rather than scoop the ball up. All Spurs now.
30' As we pass the half an hour mark here at Wembley, the hosts look comfortable with their one-nil and are dominating possession and look dangerous going forward, they just need to start creating more chances to double their lead and get Alli and Kane involved, as Stoke don't look assured at the back at the moment.
27' Poor challenge by Kevin Wimmer on Alli as the Spurs man broke free just a few yards from the penalty area. Tottenham now have a free-kick around 35 yards from goal and in a good shooting position, which Eriksen takes and forces Butland into making a good diving save to his left. Son meets the rebound but he is flagged offside.
26' This game may start to open up more now as Stoke try to attack and grab an equalising goal, which as we saw from the corner will create holes in their defence, which Tottenham can certainly exploit.
24' CHANCE TOTTENHAM! It all came from a Stoke corner at the other end, the set piece was taken short and Son managed to get a head to it before it reached his target and then he ran the length of the pitch, with Spurs having four v two on the counter, he had Alli to his right and Kane to his left, but instead he opted to go for goal himself and his low shot was superbly saved by the feet of Butland.
R. Shawcross
Own Goal
21' GOOOAAALLL SPURS LEAD! Ryan Shawcross fires the ball into his own net, past the diving Butland. Son did well down the left-wing and whipped a dangerous low cross into the penalty area, it took an initial deflection and then Shawcross stuck his leg out to try and prevent Alli from getting on the edge of the cross, but he ends up placing it in the bottom corner of the net. Very unfortunate after a good start by Stoke.
20' STAT: Pochettino's side have dropped nine points in their first seven Premier League games at Wembley this season, as many as in their last 23 league games at White Hart Lane.
18' Spurs have a promising attack, with Harry Winks and Eriksen linking up well and he then plays a good pass into the feet of Son who has a good idea of flicking the ball out to Davies on the left-wing, however his pass is overhit and the Wales international had no chance of meeting that ball, a wasted opportunity with Alli and Kane in the box waiting for a delivery.
16' Stoke look pretty threatening on the counter-attack here with the two Tottenham centre-backs of Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen lacking much pace and look vulnerable on the break. Spurs continue to dominate possession but Kane has barely touched the ball.
14' Tottenham with a free-kick in a good position to whip the ball into the box, Ben Davies and Eriksen stands over the ball but it is Eriksen to take it, he whips a good all into the penalty are but Ryan Shawcross is in an excellent position to head the ball out of play.
12' We have our first shot on target of the game, it comes through Son Heung-min as he cuts in from the left-hand side and fires a low shot at the Stoke goal, but Jack Butland has it well covered and makes a comfortable save.
10' This is better from Spurs, they are starting to see the ball inside the Stoke final third and edge of the box, but their passes aren't clinical or accurate enough at the moment and the Potters easily clear the ball up the pitch. Pretty even start to the game.
8' STAT: Spurs could go five league matches without a win for the first time in a single season since March 2012.They have earned just five points from six games, with their only league victory during that run coming at home to Crystal Palace.
6' Spurs not really getting the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen on the ball at the moment, two key players who can really influence a game, especially creating chances for Harry Kane who has been slightly isolated so far in the opening couple of minutes.
4' Tottenham have started the game by dominating possession here, but it is all in the middle of the pitch and Stoke are quite happily allowing them to have the ball for now. However, Spurs are holding a very high line in defence and Xherdan Shaqiri races through behind the backline after a good ball between the lines, but he is caught offside. He was clean through there if he could've held his run slightly.
2' Head-to-head: Spurs have won 4-0 in each of their past three Premier League matches against Stoke. No English side has won four consecutive top-flight matches against an opponent by four or more goals in each game.
1' We're underway!
The teams are out here at Wembley and kick-off is just minutes away. Stay tuned for all of the match action!
There is one change for Tottenham, Harry Winks impressed in the midweek win over Apoel so he comes in for the suspended Davinson Sanchez. Meanwhile, Stoke make two changes for the visitors with former Spurs man Kevin Wimmer replacing the injured Bruno Martins Indi, while 18-year-old Tom Edwards come in on the right as Peter Crouch drops to the bench.
STOKE SUBS: Grant, Cameron, Adam, Afellay, Sobhi, Berahino, Crouch.
STOKE (5-2-3-1): Butland (GK); Edwards, Zouma, Shawcross (C), Wimmer, Pieters; Fletcher, Allen; Choupo-Moting, Shaqiri; Diouf
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Vorm, Foyth, Aurier, Rose, Sissoko, Lamela, Llorente.
TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Lloris (GK & C); Trippier, Dier, Vertonghen, Davies; Winks, Dembele; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane.
The team news is in, here is how the two sides will line-up today...
Meanwhile for the Potters, Bruno Martins Indi is out for up to eight weeks with a groin injury, while Jese has returned to Spain for personal reasons. However, defender Geoff Cameron returns after six weeks out with concussion.
Tottenham face a defensive reshuffle as they will be without the suspended Davinson Sanchez when they face Stoke on Saturday. Sanchez has been banned for three games after his red card against Watford last weekend, while Toby Alderweireld remains out injured. In their absence, Eric Dier looks set to partner Jan Vertonghen in the centre of defence as Spurs aim to return to winning ways in the Premier League.
Stoke came from a goal down to beat Swansea last weekend and they sit 13th in the table, so manager Mark Hughes is looking for another positive result at Wembley today, where Spurs have won just three of seven league games this season.
Mauricio Pochettino's side have slipped down to sixth in the table after taking just two points from their last four league matches, despite their terrific performances in the Champions League.
Good afternoon and welcome to our LIVE match commentary of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Stoke City at Wembley.
