Harry Kane heads home a cross from Ben Davies in the 54th minute to put Tottenham 3-0 up against Stoke City yesterday at Wembley. The England striker added another in the second half for his brace. A first-half own goal from Ryan Shawcross - who also scored Stoke's consolation goal - had given Spurs the lead, before strikes from Son Heung Min and Christian Eriksen completed the rout.
