Eriksen double earns Spurs a sixth straight win at Stoke

first_imgChristian Eriksen maintained his hot goalscoring streak, striking both goals in Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 win at struggling Stoke City to extend Spurs’ winning sequence on Saturday.Harry Kane was back to lead Spurs in his first start for nearly a month after recovering from an ankle problem but it was their great Dane Eriksen who struck twice in 11 minutes after halftime to take his tally to five goals in three games.He struck after 52 minutes before a mistake from Hugo Lloris on his 200th Premier League appearance allowed Mame Biram Diouf to equalise within five minutes.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.Though Xherdan Shaqiri led a late fightback for the home side, hitting the bar with a freekick, Stoke remain rooted one from bottom.Everton (0) 0Liverpool (0) 0………………………………………………………..AFC Bournemouth (0) 2Scorers: L.
