  1. 90

    It's all over and Tottenham have moved up to fourth with a 2-1 victory over Stoke at the Britannia Stadium although Arsenal will have a chance to replace them when they face Wigan on Tuesday night.

  2. 90

    Bale charges into the area but can't finish it off as Wilkinson slides in with a well-timed challenge.

  3. 90

    Jerome does well on the right to swing in a cross to the back post but Marc Wilson's header is poor and Lloris collects.

  4. 90

    A hopeful long ball is pumped forward by Stoke as Spurs fall into the temptation to sit back.

  5. 90

    Stoke are struggling to even get hold of the ball, let alone mount a serious attack.

  6. 90

    There will be four minutes of stoppage time to play before the final whistle sounds.

  7. 89

    The visitors are doing a professional job in seeing this one out and showing no sign of nerves.

  8. 88

    Tottenham are in no need to rush anymore as they casually try to run down the clock by passing the ball along their back line.

  9. 87

    The visitors make a change with Dempsey being replaced by Gylfi Sigurdsson.

  10. 86

    Tottenham must continue to play like they were doing before Adebayor's strike in order to keep the ball out of Stoke's control. But obviously that's going to be tougher now the hosts must attack.

  11. 85

    Stoke are now forced to pushed forward in search of an equaliser but you'd fancy Tottenham to keep them out from here on in.

  12. 84

    If Tottenham can hang on to this then the pressure will be back on Arsenal to regain fourth spot when they host a Wigan side fresh from winning the FA Cup this Tuesday night.

  13. 83

    GOAL ADEBAYOR! Bale's pass from outside the box is deflected into the path of Dempsey by Dembele and the American's low cross from the right is tapped home by Adebayor at the far post.

  14. 82

    Time is running out for Spurs to find what would be a dramatic winner.

  15. 81

    Whitehead floats the free kick towards the back post which finds Huth but the big defender heads over the bar.

  16. 80

    Walters is brought down just outside the area on the left wing and this could be a good opportunity for Stoke.

  17. 79

    Stoke fans are on the edge of their feet as their side drive forward down the left but the cross into the box is cleared.

  18. 78

    Tottenham fans will be pulling their hair out watching their side do everything but score against this most dogged Stoke outfit.

  19. 77

    Huddlestone finds himself in the book after a foul on Nzonzi.

  20. 76

    A defence splitting pass from Dembele finds Bale, who brilliantly carves out some space inside the box in which to shoot before firing wide. He did the hard bit but couldn't finish it off.
