An inspired moment in the 69th minute of Tottenham Hotspur’s Carabao Cup tie has seen Spurs restore the lead against Stoke.
Gareth Bale fired Jose Mourinho’s men into the lead with a fine glancing header, with Jordan Thompson capitalising on some lax defending from the north London outfit to equalise early in the second-half.
A doomed clearance in the 69th minute spilled the ball out to Ben Davies’ path, with the left-back hammering the ball into the bottom corner from 35 yards out with a brilliant drilled strike.
This also marked the Welshman’s first goal for Spurs in three years and three months, with the Potters the only side the full-back has scored twice against during his career.
? Ben Davies cracks one home from distance! Will that see Spurs over the line?
