Posted by

Spurs hammered Stoke 5-1 at Wembley today, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side went within a point of Liverpool in the race for Champions League qualification.

Spurs opened the scoring through a Ryan Shawcross own goal, with Heung Min-Son then doubling the home side’s lead just after half time.

Harry Kane then hit a second half brace, with goals from Christan Eriksen and Shawcross in the last 10 minutes leaving the final score at 5-1.

Man of the Match

Son was absolutely superb for the north London side this afternoon, with the South Korean causing Stoke a whole host of problems down that right hand side.

The player bagged a goal and an assist, as his performance went a long way to helping his side hammered Stoke for a four successive game in a row.

Flop of the Match

Kevin Wimmer had a poor game against his former club today, with the player being run ragged by the Spurs attack constantly throughout the match.

Son had Wimmer running in circles today, as the Austrian’s performance is definitely going to be one that the defender is going to want to forget.

Stoke must hate playing Pochettino’s side at this point!
