Stoke City travel to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 1.30pm GMT. There is no live TV or Radio coverage of the game in the UK. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm GMT.


Tottenham come into the game on the back of three consecutive wins in all competitions, the latest being their 2-1 victory over Asteras Tripolis.

However, the wins were not comfortable and the manager will hope that his players step up their game when the Potters come visiting. Spurs have won just one of the their last four home games and this will be a cause for concern for the manager.

Apart from Nabil Bentaleb and Kyle Walker, Mauricio Pochettino will have the full squad at his disposal. Harry Kane will be pushing for his first Premier League start after impressing in the last few games off the bench. The young Englishman has scored three goals in three matches.

Stoke City come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw against West Ham United, a game which they should have won after going up 2-0.

Mark Hughes will have the services of striker Peter Crouch and defender Marc Muniesa, who were both suspended for their previous match, and Marko Arnautovic could also start despite breaking his hand during training.

Hughes will hope his players can exploit Spurs' lack of confidence at home and bring home the three points, as they will be looking to create a gap between them and the teams in the drop zone.

Stat of the Match: The Potters have only won at Tottenham in two of their previous 41 attempts.

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino: "I am not happy because we need to improve, play better and play well and improve in different aspects. We are alive in different competitions but we know we need to improve. For that I am not happy."

Mark Hughes [on Charlie Adam]: "I think last season there were a couple of challenges which were discussed. But Charlie will always try to affect the game and make a positive impact when he starts. Other times he will come on it's more difficult and he has to fly around at times. There have been occasions when he has caught people but it's not malicious."
