Following a dip in Premier League form, Tottenham Hotspur had an EFL Cup quarter final to distract them earlier this evening as we made the long trip up to a cold and probably wet Stoke.

Spurs started brightly and we were really in full control, we just weren’t creating much of note. The breakthrough finally came though, as Gareth Bale connected with a Harry Winks delivery to put us 1-0 up in the 22nd minute.

We could’ve actually been three or four clear by the half time break, but despite not playing for around two years, veteran Andy Lonergan was in fine form between the sticks.

The second half was really much the same, although Stoke managed to grab a few chances and made a proper tie of it in the 53rd minute when they found an equaliser. We were still largely in control for me though and with 20 minutes remaining Ben Davies made it count to restore our advantage and with nine left on the clock, Harry Kane wrapped up it with a third (it could’ve been a fourth had a particularly tight offside call not robbed Son of an earlier effort).

3-1…semi’s here we come.

German striker Jurgen Klinsmann spent two years at White Hart Lane in separate spells, but how many league goals did he contribute?
