I swear it was my goal- Harry Kane

I swear it was my goal- Harry Kane

Stoke only held onto their parity for seven second-half minutes as Alli teed Eriksen up for a precise finish into the bottom corner, after the midfielder had been forced wide and seemingly missed a chance to supply Kane.

In between Stoke had levelled through Mame Diouf, but the loss means they are four points from safety with five games to go.

Christian Eriksen maintained his hot goalscoring streak, striking both goals in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win at struggling Stoke City to extend Spurs' winning sequence on Saturday.

Eriksen then curled in a fiendish 63rd-minute freekick to which Kane claimed to have got the faintest finishing touch with his head only for replays to show the Dane had scored the goal that allowed Spurs to join third-placed Liverpool on 67 points with a sixth straight league win.

Paul Lambert has reiterated that he has been left impressed by the performances being produced by his Stoke team and the Scot is justified in talking up the application of his players since his arrival in January.

With an eight-point gap to the Blues in fifth, a place in the Champions League for a third successive season seems increasingly likely while Manchester United stand between Pochettino's side and a place in the FA Cup final.

Though Stoke fans were at least happy...

The South Korean bore down on goal only for Jack Butland to rush out and smother his attempt with the half's biggest chance.

The Potters had been typically spirited and that inspired a crowd that needed no encouragement to jeer Danny Rose for his part in a Ryan Shawcross dismissal in 2014.

Despite Kane's return to the starting XI, Spurs were guilty of making a laboured start and they were almost punished in the 12th minute, when Erik Pieters found Diouf with a low cross, only for the Senegalese forward to guide his effort over while stretching.

Dele Alli and Eriksen combined superbly for Spurs opener early in the second half.

They had lost their previous four Prem games to them, each by at least four goals.

There was encouragement for the Baggies when Jay Rodriguez poked home in the 54th minute.

The Spurs goalkeeper's clearance rebounded off the Stoke striker and dropped kindly for Diouf to roll the ball into the vacant net.

The Stoke forward fell to the floor with an injury sustained challenging Lloris but, crucially for his team, he had been upright long enough to score the goal.

Pochettino was less concerned about the identity of the scorer.
