Desperate Dan the Potter's fan: We're gonna win 6-5.

Stephen, NI: I think Mark Hughes has just reached his 'sell by' date.

Paul Duffield: It’s a relief to see us (Spurs) winning again but I do fear for Mark Hughes, his bigger signings over the last year or so look like they could cost him his job.

CLOSE!

Tottenham 5-1 Stoke

Superb save by Jack Butland to deny Spurs a sixth. More trickery from the brilliant Son Heung-min sets up Christian Eriksen but Butland denies his opponent from close range.

Hugo Lloris has got to do better - when you come for the ball you've got to get there.

Instead it was a simple Ryan Shawcross header into an empty net, with Stoke at least now on the scoresheet.

GOAL - Tottenham 5-1 Stoke

Ryan Shawcross

It's raining goals at Wembley!

Ryan Shawcross won't forget this game in a hurry. This time he finds the right net - a header from a corner.

Stoke have been really poor in this second half and Spurs have simply opened them up.

Eriksen made a great run and received the ball before placing the it into the corner. A good finish, nothing Jack Butland to do, and without being harsh Stoke have simply fallen apart.

Tottenham 5-0 Stoke

Turn away now Stoke fans!

Tottenham have created Premier League history by becoming the first team to beat the same opponent by four goals or more in 4 consecutive meetings according to Opta.

Ouch...

GOAL - Tottenham 5-0 Stoke

Christian Eriksen

It's official. This is embarrassing for Stoke!

They're ripped apart at the back again as Son Heung-min's pass finds Christian Eriksen in acres of space and he comfortably beats Jack Butland.

There's still another 15 minutes to go!

Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

Peter Crouch is on for Stoke but the damage is already done.

Stoke's poor Premier League record in London is showing no sign of ending.

If you want to see perfect finishing technique then you must watch this goal from Harry Kane.

The ball fell right in his path and two strides before slotting it right into the corner. A great, great finish.

GOAL - Tottenham 4-0 Stoke

Harry Kane

Spurs are running riot.

It's three goals in 12 second-half minutes as Harry Kane drills home after Stoke fail to clear Christian Eriksen's pass.

The wheels have well and truly come off as far as the Potters are concerned.

Tottenham 3-0 Stoke

This could get ugly for the Potters.

Spurs have had 67% possession and they're not done. They haven't scored many at Wembley in the Premier League but they are in the mood for more goals.

GREAT SAVE!

Tottenham 3-0 Stoke

Hugo Lloris has hardly been tested yet the Spurs keeper is at his razor-sharp best to deny Xherdan Shaqiri after getting behind the home defence for the first time.

It's a terrific save - and it keeps Spurs on course for a seventh Premier League clean sheet.

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea & Leicester keeper at Wembley for 5 live Sport

To be totally honest Tottenham really do deserve to be three goals up, considering how many chances they've had.

And Stoke are right out of this game - I can't see a way back into it for them.

Tottenham 3-0 Stoke

Jack Butland hasn't had a good game. Moments before Tottenham's third goal the Stoke keeper was almost embarrassed by Kane after losing control of the ball inside his own penalty area.

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea & Leicester keeper at Wembley for 5 live Sport

That's exactly what Tottenham needed.

For the second, it was a really good ball from Winks onto Alli, and then his ball through was even better.

Son looked like he'd made the task more difficult for himself when his touch took him away from goal, but his finish at the near post was excellent.

GOAL - Tottenham 3-0 Stoke

Harry Kane

Too easy.

Harry Kane out-jumps the Stoke defence to meet Ben Davies' excellent hanging cross and power home.

It goes through the legs of Jack Butland.

Game over.

GOAL - Tottenham 2-0 Stoke

Son Heung-min

Son Heung-min has run the show for Tottenham and he now has a goal his man-of-the-match performance deserves.

It's a delicious move - Deli Alli's pass unlocking the Potters defence and Son's low finish inside the penalty area is clinical.

Spurs are heading for three points.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

First shot on target by Stoke...and it's Ryan Shawcross who tests Hugo Lloris from distance. It's straight down the throat of the Spurs keeper.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Ominous signs for Stoke. Spurs have come flying out of the blocks. It's already looking like a long second half for the visitors.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Untidy Stoke defending from Tottenham's sixth corner gives Harry Kane a chance on the edge of the six-yard area. It's high and wide but it wouldn't have counted - the flag was up.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

The good news for Stoke is that this game is not out of sight. Unlike the corresponding fixture last season when they were 4-0 down at half-time at White Hart Lane.

KICK-OFF

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Spurs get the game back under way.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Spurs have climbed above Arsenal in the 'as it stands' table.

Stoke, who started the day 13th, are currently down to 15th - just three points above the relegation zone.

The second half is moments away.

HALF-TIME

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

This is not a classic. Far from it. But Tottenham have the half-time lead thanks to Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Spurs have only once scored more than one Premier League goal in a match at Wembley this season. They need a second to put this game to bed.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

It's vital Stoke don't concede a second before half-time.

The Potters have a rare attack after Christian Eriksen is robbed cheaply by Joe Allen but hi spass for Mame Biram Diouf runs all the way to Hugo Lloris.

You'd put your house on Harry Kane scoring from there.

It was Edwards who played the Spurs striker on-side, and it was a great run from Kane bursting through.

But credit to Jack Butland, who was straight off his line, distracting Kane and forcing him to shoot wide.

To be honest it's been all Tottenham and they should be 3-0 up already.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

What. A. Miss.

Harry Kane usually puts these away with his eyes closed. Not this time.

It's a delicious pass by Son which sends him clean through with only Jack Butland to beat but he somehow puts it wide.

Groans from Spurs fans.

Harry Kane's just had his first real opening. Tottenham need him to push up and stretch the Stoke defence, because so far he's been playing too deep.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Little from Harry Kane so far.

The England man flashes a header narrowly wide but it wouldn't have counted due to an offside flag.

It gets Mauricio Pochettino out of his seat and the Spurs boss is pacing the technical area.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

A succession of corners for Spurs. Stoke are defending for their lives.

Jack Butland has to deal with a 25 yard attempt by Mousa Dembele which bounces awkwardly in front of the keeper.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Half an hour on the clock.

After a bright start, Stoke are now camped inside their own area trying to prevent Spurs from adding a second goal before half-time.

Tottenham are bossing possession but can they make it count?

CLOSE!

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Free-kick to Spurs about 25 yards out.

Christian Eriksen steps up to place it over the red and white wall but Jack Butland is down to palm it away.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

That goal has certainly settled Spurs down. They're looking a lot sharper and Son is causing havoc with his powerful runs.

The South Korean is denied by the legs of Butland when a pass to Christian Eriksen would almost certainly have led to a second goal.

Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea & Leicester keeper at Wembley for 5 live Sport

That goal was coming. A really good cross into the Stoke box and the deflection up gave Ryan Shawcross no chance at all to clear the ball.

Instead it deflected off him straight into the back of the net.

GOAL - Tottenham 1-0 Stoke

Ryan Shawcross (own goal)

Spurs have hardly got out of second gear but they take the lead thanks to a fine run by Son Heung-min and a huge slice of fortune.

Son's low cross into the penalty area comes off Kurt Zouma and hits Ryan Shawcross before flying past Jack Butland.

Tough on Stoke.

Tottenham 0-0 Stoke

Spurs make a hash of dealing with Stoke's first corner and Hugo Lloris gathers before Mame Biram Diouf can stab home the loose ball.
