Full-time:Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Stoke City
- TOT - STO
- CHE - SWA
Wanyama is late on Allen, who knees him as they get up. Wanyama is booked.
Kane gets to trot off to four-sided acclaim, replaced by Son.
Should be five for Spurs, who narcotize Stoke with passing then spring forward, Walker motoring outside Eriksen who quickly plays him in. But, from an acute angle, he opts to hit the target and see, trying a side-footer, rather than going for it and imparting the laces; Grant saves with his legs.
Cameron returns after injury; he replaces Whelan.
Winks pops up on the right of the box and lays back for Kane, who again shapes to curl in at the far post - this time with his left foot. And he hits it well too, Grant forward to fly across and palm clear.
Davies plays Winks into trouble, so Wimmer comes over to barge Arnautovic to the ground; he's booked, and the free-kick, wide on he right and 30 yards out, is headec clear easily.
Change for Spurs: Vertonghen goes off and Winks comes on. I was kind of surprised he didn't come at half-time; I imagine Spurs will now go to a 4-2-3-1.
Double-change for Stoke: off go Adam and Ctouch, on come Affelay and Berahino.
Stoke win a few corners, and Adam shoots following one, Lloris doing well to scramble down and away at his far post before Allen can nudge him the loose ball.
Nice from Dier, flighting a long ball into Alli, who comes from out to in. He takes the ball on his chest, then hooks goalwards ... the shot bounces just wide.
On comes Wimmer. One day, he'll score a winning goal and the headline will be WIMMER'S WAY.
Spurs get us going again.
Half-time: Spurs 4-0 Stoke City
GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Stoke City (Alli) Oh this is lovely from Kane, wandering out to the right and flicking Eriksen's pass over his own head and that of Martins Indi. He might go alone, but instead snaps a perfect square-ball across the face for Alli, who slides in to finish emphatically into the roof of the net.
Alli eases free of Whelan, so Arnautovic has a slide, takes him out, and earns a booking.
HAT-TRICK GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Stoke City (Kane) Kane has a third treble in nine games! Eriksen rolls him the ball to change the angle, and though his effort is no good, it cannons Crouch's ankle, wrongfoots Grant, and there you go. I think Spurs might win this one.
GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Stoke City (Kane) Another expert's finish. The corner comes to the edge of the box, bouncing and skipping off the turn as Kane allows it across his body before cutting across a finish with his left foot, perpendicular to his standing leg, and it zooms into the bottom corner as Wanyama leaps out of the road.
Wanyama finds Kane, who's fouled, and with everyone expecting the free-kick to go into the box - it's 30 yards out, on the right - Eriksen squares it to Walker, who slams a shot that Grant has to tip over.
Here come Spurs again, Kane turning up at inside-left to take a pass from Alli and unfurl a curler that only just eludes the far post. This has been an excellent half-hour from Spurs.
The corner is flat and flicked on by Alderweireld at the near post. And at the back post is Vertonghen, pulling towards the edge; he controls with his left then swipes with his right, sending a shot whizzing against the crossbar.
Alderweireld plays into Alli, so Adam runs through him, huffing and puffing, sweating and kvetching. He's booked.
WHAT A SAVE SER LLORIS! Stoke get an overload down the left, so Adam rolls in Pieters, whose low cross is superb - all Crouch needs to do, five yards out, is connect. Which he does, only for Lloris to stick out a foot and divert the ball clear! How crucial will that be?
Whelan flies into a tackle on Vertonghen; he leaves the ground, he's not in control, and catches his man. Yellow card, apparently.
GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Stoke City (Kane) Oh this is brilliantly taken! Alli bundles into the box and Eriksen tries to take over, but when the ball bounces off his heel, it falls at the feet of Kane, maybe nine years out and well right of centre. He does not wait to be asked twice, taking a touch to move it into stride before snapping a low shot across Grant and into the far side-netting before anyone has even said nice swept-back barnet, pal.
Decent couple of minutes from Stoke, who trap Dembele on his own by-line, close to the corner. He plays a blind pass around the corner, picking out Allen, who promptly lashes a shot into the near post side-netting.
Lovely from Eriksen, isolating Shawcross out wide and skipping beyond him easily. He then moseys along the line as Kane pulls away, waiting for a cross, but for reasons known best to himself, he then rolls it through Grant's legs, where no one is waiting to breathe it home.
Off we go.
GOAL! 3-1, game over. Hazard squares up Naughton and skins him, then chips back for Costa to emphatically volley in.
GOAL! 2-1 to Chelsea! Pedro tries his luck from 25 yards and his curling effort ends up in the net but that's a howler from Fabianski, who let the ball go under him.
GOAL! 1-1! Sigurdsson takes a free-kick from the centre circle and Chelsea get their marking all wrong as Llorente has a free-header 12 yards out and he steers it into the top corner to draw Swansea level! That came out of nowhere.
GOAL! 1-0. Chelsea lead! After some neat passes, Hazard plays in Pedro behind the Swansea defence and his pull back is dug out from under himself by Fabregas before he prods home.
