General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 FULL TIME! All over and it finishes Tottenham 0-0 Stoke. Frustration for the hosts who just could not find a way past a determined Potters team. Spurs drop down to fifth while Stoke are just five points behind in eighth.
90' +4
Walters is booked for time-wasting as Stoke look to cling onto a precious point. Time rapidly running out for Spurs at White Hart Lane.
90' +3 J. Walters gets yellow.
90' +1 Into FOUR minutes of added time on here and it's all Spurs. Sigurdsson is the latest to go close but his superb header is saved by Begovic.
90' Bale goes tumbling in the box! The Welshman is played in by Adebayor but Jerome is there with a challenge which leaves Bale on the turf. No penalty says the referee.
88' Chance for Spurs! Defoe is fouled on the edge of the box and the hosts have a free kick. Up steps Bale but his effort is deflected wide for a corner.
85' S. Parker enters the game and replaces M. Dembélé.
Scott Parker comes on for the tired Dembele, but apart from freeing up more creative players, throwing on a holding midfielder will hardly enable Spurs to go gung ho.
82' In truth, the hosts have lacked dynamism today. There has been no real pace, no cutting edge and nothing to suggest they are ready for a Champions League place. Perhaps things could be different for AVB's side when Bale returns to peak fitness, but that's quite an 'if'.
81' Sigurdsson's first real action - a corner - finds its way (you guessed it) straight into Begovic's arms once more.
78' S. N'Zonzi gets yellow.
G. Sigurðsson enters the game and replaces A. Lennon.
Geoff Cameron and Stephen Nzonzi get their names written into the book, with Stoke now having four players on cautions. There has certainly not been a shortage of yellow cards today.
The resultant free kick is hit by Walker, but straight into the hands of Begovic once again. Both keepers are now getting more into the game, but more collecting lifeless crosses rather than stopping ferocious shots.
The last throw of the dice from AVB as Gylfi Sigurdsson enters the fray. Spurs have 10 minutes to score a winner if they want to finish the day in third place.
