Stoke City prop up Premier League after Tottenham defeat

 

 Football News 24/

Harry Kane ended his nine-match run without a goal as Tottenham recorded a comfortable win that kept Stoke bottom of the table.

Son Heung-min got the first two goals with the second being a smart, angled finish.

Dele Alli added the third by slotting the ball into the net following a Kyle Walker cut-back. Kane got his first a Spurs’ fourth by firing in from Son's low cross on the 70th minute.

Stoke, who had manager Mark Hughes sent off, offered little to suggest they could win and stop their winless start stretching to a fourth game.

The defeat leaves them bottom of the Premier League, however, their fans may take consolation in the fact that Stoke have been regular slow starters.

The more interesting aspect of the table is that other top ten finishers from last season like West Ham who let a two goal lead slip at home to Watford, and Southampton who lost with a late goal against Arsenal are also struggling for points.

The top of the table has a familiar look with the top six slots held by leaders Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United, Spurs and Arsenal.
