Tottenham Hotspur survives a scare at Stoke City to reach the semi-finals of the League Cup

Football News

Thanks to goals from Gareth Bale, Ben Davies, and Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur survived a scare at Stoke City to reach the semi-finals of the League Cup.

A clever flicked header from a Harry Winks cross was Bale’s shot, just his second since returning to Spurs in the summer, and he put Spurs in charge after a largely lackluster first half.

However, when Jordan Thompson drifted off the back of Matt Doherty and smashed home his first goal for the club from close range, Stoke, who had given nothing in the way of a goal threat for the opening 50 minutes, gave himself a chance for an upset.

As Spurs lost a bit of form, the game opened up, giving the hosts hope of securing a cup upset. But Davies restored Tottenham’s advantage with a missile of a shot from space before Kane made the game secure with a classy finish as Stoke moved numbers forward chasing an equalizer.
