Pochettino: rotation vs. Stoke was to keep players fresh

Stoke manager Paul Lambert has lost patience with Berahino's poor time-keeping

Christian Eriksen was credited with a brace as Harry Kane was denied a crucial goal in the Golden Boot race in Tottenham's 2-1 win over Stoke at the bet365 Stadium.

Harry Kane claimed he did score Tottenham's victor at Stoke to break a personal goals record, even though Christian Eriksen has been credited with it.

Only seven games remain for the Lilywhites as they look likely to achieve Champions League football going into their new stadium.

"Three points will be massive for them but us too because to finish in the top four is a massive objective for us".

"I thought we were excellent throughout the game and were up against a really good side", said Lambert.

But replays were inconclusive and, even though Tottenham and Stoke had awarded the goal to Kane, the Premier League confirmed that it would need to be reviewed.

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino took questions from the media ahead of their trip to Stoke.

"We were better, but we suffered a lot".

None of those were especially shocking changes from the team that beat Chelsea last weekend, but Poch was asked about them in the post-match press conference, and to maybe everyone's surprise, Poch gave a pretty long and drawn-out response. For a player considered by many as one of the world's best shot-stoppers, that's an alarming fall from grace.

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.

A first win at Stamford Bridge in 28 years means the north London club, now occupying fourth place, opened up an eight-point gap to Antonio Conte's side in fifth. "The most important thing is three points to us". We never got downbeat after the game.

Eriksen, who had earlier opened the scoring for Tottenham with his fourth goal in three games, added: "He celebrated like it was his goal so I will have to take his word for it".
