Premier League: Stoke 1-2 Tottenham

Table of Contents
Tottenham Hotspur escaped with a 2-1 victory from Stoke City who will feel aggrieved at a late decision not to award them an equaliser.

Spurs were ahead in slightly comical circumstances in the 19th minute when Peter Crouch's effort was bundled off the line by Ryan Shawcross, only for the ball to deflect of Gareth Bale's face and into the net.

Ricardo Fuller pulled one back for the Potters just six minutes later after a smart close-range finish from a corner in the 25th minute.

But Tottenham regrouped and regained their lead on 30 minutes as Bale volleyed a sweet effort into the top corner after great work from Aaron Lennon.

Stoke were seething in the dying minutes when Jon Walters had a header cleared off the line by Crouch, and although it looked like the ball may have crossed the line, referee Chris Foy ruled no goal.
