Match Report: Stoke City 0-4 Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Kane ended his goal drought and Son Heung-Min scored twice as Tottenham cruised to victory at Stoke.

Dele Alli was also on target as Potters boss Mark Hughes was sent to the stands before half-time for a furious rant at the officials.

Hughes could face a further investigation by the FA after continuing his protests after being ordered from the touchline by referee Anthony Taylor and appearing to swear at fourth official Jon Moss.

Hughes’s dismissal when the score was 0-0 began a miserable afternoon for Stoke , who were 1-0 down at half-time thanks to a clever finish from Son.

The Korean added a spectacular second after the break to double Tottenham’s advantage before Alli secured the win with his side’s third.

And England striker Kane then scored from close range for his first goal in 10 games for club and country.


There were times in the summer transfer window when Son Heung-Min seemed set to leave Tottenham, but the Korean clearly still has a role to play.

He drifted in and out of the game in open play, but the composure of his finish to open the scoring suggested a player with his confidence still intact.

He was given a rare start ahead of Erik Lamela and repaid the faith of Mauricio Pochettino handsomely, drifting in from his left-wing starting position to offer a goal threat.
