Eriksen double earns Tottenham victory at struggling Stoke

"I think after his injury he played 90 minutes and that's going to help".

Tottenham fans were shocked when Toby Alderweireld was dropped from the squad to face Stoke on Saturday and taken aback when manager Mauricio Pochettino said he was not getting in the side because of his form.

Spurs' persistence eventually paid off just after the interval, as they sliced through Stoke and Eriksen got the goal, but their lead lasted just five minutes, Mame Biram Diouf punishing a Hugo Lloris error.

Jenas said on BT Sport Score: "I expect Spurs to lose one big one this summer".

"If we keep playing like that - and I still think we need to win three games or so - we will certainly do it".

Tottenham do not have the same financial spending power of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United although they will have greater earning potential when they move into a new stadium next season.

Zouma, who is on loan at the club from defending champions Chelsea, missed last weekend's 3-0 defeat by Arsenal with a knee injury while Diouf picked up a knock and limped off after an hour in that game.

"If we can finish second, it would be better than third or fourth", the Argentinian added. The most important thing is the three points for us.

Stoke sit three points adrift from safety - which effectively becomes four given their goal difference - but even a point against their more illustrious opponents would be regarded as acceptable with four winnable games still to come in their remaining five fixtures. "It flicked off my shoulder and went in".

"We have to do what I think is the right way and perform against what I think is a really good side".

And Eriksen added: "He celebrated like it was his goal so I will have to take his word for it".

Paul Lambert's Stoke are placed 19th in the English topflight with 27 points after 33 outings. It will be fantastic for the club to do it for a third consecutive time. "It's a massive time for the team to achieve all that we want".
