Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes this weekend's fixture against Premier League strugglers Stoke City will be tougher than last week's 3-1 victory away at Chelsea.

The London club also have a game in hand as they seek to finish second behind Manchester City.

"We have the same points as Liverpool with one game less, so we are optimistic for the future".

They had to soak up a late spell of Everton pressure to stretch their record unbeaten run in Merseyside derbies to 17 games.

"Look at the facilities of the new stadium".

Klopp, though, reckoned he was satisfied with a performance that saw Liverpool largely control proceedings. Ayoze Perez sealed the win in the 75th minute of the encounter. For me, in this type of business, we're lucky because today we can have a good life. "Let's fight for the next round".

The visitors regained their lead in the 63rd minute through Eriksen's free-kick even though Harry Kane seems to have got the slightest of touches to the Denmark international's kick.

Following Harry Kane's ankle ligament injury picked up back in March, the striker made a 15-minute appearance against Chelsea on Sunday.

Any Spurs players feeling underpaid and undervalued could perhaps be angered by that pay boost for the man at the top.

At the Hawthorns, West Brom played out a 1-1 draw with Swansea.

And Kane did his best to convince everyone he had netted his 25th league goal of the season.

Burnley maintained their unlikely push for European football, coming from behind with two goals from Sam Vokes and Jack Cork in three second-half minutes to win 2-1 at Watford.

Those wins have put Spurs in prime position to achieve at least a top-four place in the standings, they have claimed a spot in the FA Cup semi-finals and Pochettino has identified that he does not necessarily require a like-for-like replacement for Kane when he is unavailable.

Xherdan Shaqiri nearly secured Stoke a share of the spoils 10 minutes from time, but his free-kick came back off the crossbar and Spurs held on to the victory which leaves them only behind third-placed Liverpool on goal difference.
