    Don't forget you can keep across the League Cup final here.

  2. 'Spurs can kill you'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Stoke City

    Stoke defender Erik Pieters, speaking to Sky Sports:  "When you come here, you have to be top level and any performance below that they can kill you.

    "Every opportunity for Harry Kane is a goal - the free kick was lucky but if you are not at your best level, they can hurt you".

  3. 'Not good enough'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Stoke City

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes, speaking to BBC Sport: "The game's done in the first half. The manner of the goals we conceded was not good enough at any level. The second half was zero conceded and I guess that's a positive but that's because Spurs didn't push.

    "We were too passive and not doing enough to stop balls going to our goal. Clearly Spurs are very good but if you allow teams time and space then good players will hurt you."

  4. 'Kane one of world's best'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport, about hat-trick hero Harry Kane: "He's playing at a very good level. He's one of the best strikers in the world. He deserves it because he's a great professional."

    On Dele Alli: "Dele is very mature and a great boy. I am very pleased for him, he had a difficult few days but it was a good response. He was fantastic on the pitch."

  5. 'Fantastic performance'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a fantastic performance. It was a good response from the team.

    "Ten points is a big gap [to Chelsea] - but we keep going and believe. We try to put on pressure."

  6. 'Difficult week'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham's Dele Alli: "It has been a difficult week for me. I felt horrible after the game in the week. I'm delighted to respond like this today. Harry Kane is a fantastic player, it's great to have someone like that in our team. All the credit to him for my goal."

  7. Next up?

    Tottenham have a full week to prepare for their next game - Everton at home on Sunday, 5 March (13:30 GMT). Stoke must pick themselves up at home to Middlesbrough on Saturday, 4 March (15:00 GMT).

  8. 'What we needed'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham striker Harry Kane, speaking Sky Sports, about scoring 100 club goals: "We wanted to get back to winning ways. What a first half that was. It was exactly what we needed.

    "I tried to get my shots off -  I had luck with third one. I was going to shoot for the fourth but passed to Dele.

    "I got told before the game on Thursday I was on 99 club goals - it's nice to get those kind of records. Hopefully another 100 in the next few years.

  9. Alive and kicking

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Tottenham Hotspur

    After the misery of going out of the Europa League of Thursday, Spurs have bounced back strongly and their season remains very much alive.

    They're in the sixth round of the FA Cup and are now second in the Premier League table after an eighth successive Premier League home win.

  10. Kaned

    #bbcfootball

    Sam Pougher: Stoke leave with nothing. They've been Kaned!   

  11. 'Calm down, Harry'

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Alan Shearer

    Ex-England captain on 5 live

    Calm down Harry Kane! What is he after...a Premier League record or something?

  12. Stoke fail to deliver

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on 5 live

    I expected so much more from Stoke. They are usually tough to break down but it is a day to forget for them.

    From a Spurs point of view they have reacted perfectly after the European disappointment. They were the much the better team. 

  13. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Tottenham move above Manchester City into second spot. Chelsea's lead at the top is down to....just the 10 points. The headlines belong to Harry Kane.

  14. FULL-TIME - Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Ugly tackle by Victor Wanyama on Joe Allen. No need for that at this stage. It's a yellow card for the Spurs man.

  16. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Another save by Lee Grant to keep out Dele Alli after Stoke's defence again goes missing in action. 

  17. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    One of the biggest roars of the afternoon as White Hart Lane rises to give Harry Kane a standing ovation. His afternoon is over and he is taking another match ball home with him. Where's he going to put this one? Surely he's running out of space. Son Heung-min is on for the closing stages.

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on 5 live

    When you play so well and score four in the first half, the fans will want five, six, seven.

    Stoke have been marginally better this half but Tottenham will be just conserving their energy, knocking it around and making Stoke sweat. 

  19. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Stoke are so poor that even Kyle Walker fancies his chances of scoring. The defender is denied by another fine save by Grant.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

    Dele Alli tests Lee Grant from distance. It's a comfortable save. Stoke make their final change as Geoff Cameron replaces Glenn Whelan.
