Stoke City 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur: Eriksen stars

Stoke manager Paul Lambert has lost patience with Berahino's poor time-keeping

With just seven league games remaining this season, a place in the Champions League for a third successive season now seems assured while Manchester United stand between Pochettino's side and a place in the FA Cup final.

Here's a replay of the goal, courtesy of NBC.

The identity of the matchwinner does not matter to manager Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham followed their victory over Chelsea by opening up an 11-point gap over the fifth-placed Blues.

Pochettino acknowledged that being able to host games in European football's elite competition will be key to ensuring they keep pace with other clubs.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "I look at what is happening at Chelsea and think that Antonio Conte will be leaving at the end of the season".

"I think we have to win at least three games now", added Lambert. The new stadium will help the team.

Pochettino also urged his players not to simply accept the job is done and to push on and finish runners-up to Manchester City.

Sam Vokes brought Burnley level with a 70th-minute finish, his first touch after coming on a substitute.

Manchester City' star Kevin De Bruyne enjoying 'most complete season'
Meanwhile, City's star performer this season played down the events, saying he's used to that sort of hostile environment. Have your say below and get involved in the debate in the comments section.

"I told you in my press conference yesterday that it should be a more hard game than against Chelsea because to match the hunger and motivation of Stoke and play in a hard atmosphere is always tough".

The second half produced little in the way of incident - but with four minutes to go Everton were within a whisker of winning as Cenc Tosun's header drifted wide and then Dominic Calvert-Lewin fired off target.

After a goalless first half, Christian Eriksen took the lead for the visitors, before Mame Biram Diouf found an equalizer in freakish circumstances.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris came off his line only to collide with Diouf and the ball dropped for the dazed striker to roll it into the vacant net. Christian Eriksen scores twice as Tottenham edges closer to securing a return to the Champions League by beating Stoke 2-1 in the English Premier League.

The match went on, and Premier League review officials eventually said that Kane didn't get the goal and it was awarded to Eriksen, his second of the game. "Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer will clear that one up on Match Of The Day".

Christian Eriksen: "Harry celebrated like it was his goal so I will have to take his word for it". "Of course if Harry scored, and he feels he scored, it's fantastic for his confidence". It has put us in a very good position in the table.

It remains to be seen how much Tottenham may ask for Alderweireld and whether they will be prepared to sell to domestic rivals in the shape of Manchester United.
