Stoke City 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Saido Berahino

Christian Eriksen maintained his hot goalscoring streak, bagging both goals in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win at struggling Stoke City to extend Spurs' winning sequence.

After a goalless first half, Christian Eriksen took the lead for the visitors, before Mame Biram Diouf found an equalizer in freaky circumstances.

Eriksen then curled in a fiendish 63rd-minute freekick to which Kane claimed to have got the faintest finishing touch with his head only for replays to show the Dane had scored the goal that allowed Spurs to join third-placed Liverpool on 67 points with a sixth straight league win.

Aside from an early Stoke chance, Spurs were on top for most of the first period, although clear-cut opportunities were by no means a regular occurrence.

No rest for world record-holders in Commonwealth Games pool
The 25-year-old, who won the 50m title on Friday, touched in a Commonwealth Games record of 1:54.00, well ahead of David Morgan. The New Zealanders picked up their first gold medal on the track with a victory over England in the men's team sprint .

"For us it would be a massive achievement to finish top four for a third time".

There is a growing belief Spurs will have to loosen the purse strings if they are to retain their best players and attract the quality of signing needed to improve the club's standing. It was a tougher game, but I think we deserved the victory.

"He [Kane] said it touched his shoulder but I don't know".

The match went on, and Premier League review officials eventually said that Kane didn't get the goal and it was awarded to Eriksen, his second of the game. "It's the three points that are the most important for us".

Robbers arrested while picking motorbike used in foiled robbery
Williams told officers that he was present when the victim was robbed, but did not participate in the robbery, the report says. The suspects sensing danger took to their heels and abandoned the motorbike parked in front of the house.

However, Stoke have reached a point where only results matter and unless they halt a winless run which has lasted since January 20, the Potters will be playing in the Championship next season.

I swear it was my goal, you've got to take my word for it. Of course if Harry scored and he feels he scored then it's fantastic to build his confidence and trust.

Raheem Sterling twice fired over from good positions but after 53 minutes United were back in it with a high-quality goal, Alexis Sanchez picking out Ander Herrera, who chested the ball down for Pogba to clip home - and within two minutes they had made it 2-2.

Stoke manager Paul Lambert was left frustrated with yet another loss.

Trump's Fed chair admits trade policy concerns
The jobless rate is expected to trough at just 3.6 percent next year, as compared with the earlier 3.9 percent. Powell said Fed policymakers don't think changes in trade policy will affect their current economic outlook.

It remains to be seen how much Tottenham may ask for Alderweireld and whether they will be prepared to sell to domestic rivals in the shape of Manchester United. "Performance-wise, we don't look like a team in the bottom two that's for sure".
