FULL-TIME

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

All over! Stunning from Spurs, sorry from Stoke. Spurs continue their unbeaten start as Harry Kane scores for the first time this season. Stoke? Still winless and still rock-bottom.

Thanks for your company. Head over here for all the post-match reaction.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Spurs sub Erik Lamela has pop from 30 yards, easy save for Stoke keeper Shay Given.

INJURY TIME

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Four minutes of stoppage-time. Stoke beg for mercy.

YELLOW CARD

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Here's what you get for £30m, Silly trips and a yellow card. Spurs sub Moussa Sissoko goes into the book. Stoke waste the set piece.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Stoke are plugging away still to their credit. They win a corner... and Charlie Adam - who is getting plenty of stick from the Spurs fans - spoons the ball over everyone in the box. It's been that sort of day Stoke fans...

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Five minutes left for Stoke to endure. Most of the home fans have scarpered. Loads of empty seats.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

If this was a boxing match the referee would have stepped in and called it off. 

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

This could be a long 10 minutes if you're a Stoke fan. I'd have already left and grabbed a greasy quarter-pounder from the van outside to cheer me up on the way home.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Almost an instant impact from Moussa Sissoko! An inadvertent impact but... The Spurs debutant crosses from the right, the ball slices off Stoke defender Bruno Martins Indi and loops just over the home goal.

SUBSTITUTION

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

A substitution when you are leading 4-0 is rarely significant - but this is. Spurs' new £30m midfielder Moussa Sissoko makes his debut following his move from Newcastle.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Bit of pressure from Stoke but it is too little too late. Bojan shoots over after Hugo Lloris blocks on his line.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Nope. Bread and butter for Hugo Lloris as he saves Stoke sub Charlie Adam's daisycutter.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

And that is pretty much Harry Kane's last involvement. The Spurs striker, with the sound of the Spurs fans singing his name in his ears, is replaced by summer signing Vincent Janssen.

'Stoke wide open at the back, so poor defensively'

Home defeats always pile more pressure on a manager. There's a lack of defensive cover, a long time without a clean sheet, and this has been a poor all-round performance from the Potters. Today they have been wide open at the back, so poor defensively.

Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

That's Harry Kane's 50th Premier League goal by the way. He joins Teddy Sheringham, Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane in Spurs' half-century club.

GOAL - Stoke 0-4 Tottenham

Harry Kane

Now it is four... The icing on the cake for Spurs - Harry Kane ends his drought. The England striker scores for the first time in 10 matches - and he cannot miss. Son Heung-min's low cross in the corridor of uncertainty between Stoke's defence and keeper Shay Given leaves Kane with the simplest of finishes.

Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

Almost four. Christian Eriksen scampers clear and Shay Given is forced into action at his near post.

Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

More goals in this for Spurs if they want them. If Stoke try to attack they will be picked. Again.

SUBSTITUTION

Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

Change for Stoke. Bojan comes on, Glenn Whelan goes off.

Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

Even Toby Alderweireld is trying to get on the scoresheet now. The Spurs centre-back lashes one well over the Stoke bar from a stupidly-tight angle after an away corner. He was never going to score from there. The sort of effort you can get away with when you're leading 3-0...

Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

The Spurs fans are taunting their hosts with a rendition of "It's happening again, it's happening again...!" Spurs won 4-0 here last season remember.

Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

Imagine how angry Mark Hughes is now. He'll be bubbling inside like Mount Etna. Stoke have capitulated.

GOAL - Stoke 0-3 Tottenham

Dele Alli

"Come on kids, we're off." Mums and dads in the Stoke stands decide to beat the car park rush.

Stoke have a couple of corners - and within seconds they are 3-0 down. Another swift corner, a composed finish from Dele Alli and it is game over.

Kyle Walker pops up on the right flank, squares to Alli and the England midfielder slots in from eight yards.

Stoke 0-2 Tottenham

That's see what Stoke have got now then. They win a corner...

GOAL - Stoke 0-2 Tottenham

Son Heung-min

Wow. Wasn't there some chat Spurs wanted to sell Son Heung-min in the transfer window? If that was true then they will be glad they haven't! The South Korea forward sweeps in a wonderful second goal, clinically finishing another swift Spurs move. Christin Eriksen was again the architect, nipping in ahead of Glenn Whelan before picking out Son. 

SUBSTITUTION

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Here is that change. Erik Lamela ties up his laces and comes on for Victor Wanyama.

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Spurs are preparing a change. Erik Lamela is putting his shinnies on.

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Close! Stoke almost level after a corner causes havoc in the Spurs box. The visitors can't clear, the ball drops to Ryan Shawcross who stabs just wide of the left-hand post.

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

*Mark Hughes update*

The Stoke boss, up in the stands after his first-half sending off, gives up on the headset. Instead he's using his mobile phone to communicate with his bench. Just set up a WhatsApp group, Sparky. Hope he has Bojan Krkic saved in his spellcheck...

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Spurs go close to doubling their lead. A sublime touch from Christian Eriksen, deftly cushioning a long diag, helps give him a sight of the Stoke goal. A low drive from 20 yards tries to catch out Shay Given at his near post, but the veteran Stoke keeper is too old for that game. Good save.

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Nothing yet for Mark Hughes - or Mauricio Pochettino - to discuss in the opening stages of this second half. Midfield battle at the moment.

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Our cameraman has spotted Hughesy in the stand. He's trying to get to grips with a headset to talk to the Stoke bench. Uh oh, it's not working. Don't make him even angrier...

KICK-OFF

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

The players are back out. Mark Hughes is still in the stand. Stoke, presumably pumped by Sparky's animated half-time team-talk, restart the action.

'Tottenham have slowly come into this game'

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Kevin Kilbane

Former Everton and Sunderland winger on Final Score

Spurs started this game edgily with Stoke putting them under pressure.

But Tottenham have slowly come into this game and this goal could kick-start them into going on a roll.

Half-time stats

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Stoke
Opta

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

There was so little between these two sides in that half you could barely squeeze a cigarette paper between them. 

Son Heung-min's brilliant finish separates them. But arguably the best bit of the first 45 minutes was Stoke manager Mark Hughes losing the plot and getting sent off.

He was angrier than a man who has just found out he's having gammon and veg instead of fish and chips for his Friday tea.

HALF-TIME

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Stoke's new striker Wilfried Bony has been quiet in the last half an hour of his debut. But here he is... The Ivorian has a pop from the edge of the Spurs box, deflecting off a dark blue shirt for a corner. Ah, but we haven't got time for a corner. Referee Anthony Taylor endearing himself to the home crowd even more there...

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Joe Allen is the brains behind another Stoke attack, crossing into the Spurs box from the right. But the ball just evades Jon Walters and Spurs look to be heading down the tunnel with a one-goal lead.

YELLOW CARD

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

More referee baiting from the Stoke fans as they demand Victor Wanyama goes into the book for a sliding tackle on Joe Allen. Referee Anthony Taylor grants them their wish. Soft if you ask me...

INJURY TIME

Stoke 0-1 Tottenham

Stoke survive another Spurs attack, winning a free-kick in their own area - to the delight of the ironically-cheering home fans. Three minutes of added time...
