Harry Kane says he scored Tottenham's second goal against Stoke

Harry Kane says he scored Tottenham's second goal against Stoke

Mousa Dembele's pass released Alli down the right and he neglected passing to Kane, instead biding his time for Eriksen to break into the box and sweep home the opener.

Eriksen's left-wing free-kick curled into the penalty area and Kane got close to it with his head, before celebrating as if he had got a touch.

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

After review, the Premier League officially awarded the goal to Eriksen - who had earlier opened the scoring before Mame Biram Diouf pounced on Hugo Lloris' error to equalise - leaving Kane five goals behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah as the England striker bids for a third consecutive Golden Boot.

Astonishingly, after 69 minutes United were in front, Sanchez again the provider as his deep free kick from the left was met by Smalling, who escaped his markers to thump past Ederson - and City could not find a way back.

Yet playing the kind of neat, composed football that belied their second bottom position they should have gone ahead in the 12th minute.

Paul Lambert's side limited one of the Premier League's form teams to just one serious chance in the first half, Jack Butland producing an excellent save to deny Son Heung-min.

Brighton had midfielder Davy Propper sent off for a studs-up lunge on Jonathan Hogg in the 74th minute.

Bournemouth responded with a 66th minute leveller as Lys Mousset produced a fine finish just seconds after coming off the bench.

Newcastle doubled their lead through Ayoze Perez's 75th minute rocket before Jamie Vardy got one back for Leicester in the 84th minute.

Burnley kept their excellent recent run going as they came from a goal down to win 2-1 at Watford.

Xherdan Shaqiri nearly secured Stoke a share of the spoils 10 minutes from time, but his free-kick came back off the crossbar and Spurs held on to the victory which leaves them only behind third-placed Liverpool on goal difference.
