Joshua King's leveller means Roy Hodgson's Palace side remain 17th in the table, three points clear of 18th-placed Southampton.

Manchester City must wait to annex the Premier League title after an wonderful Paul Pogba-inspired fightback from two goals down saw their biggest rivals Manchester United earn a famous 3-2 win to ruin the Etihad Stadium's dream party on Saturday.

Christian Eriksen's second-half free-kick looked to have been headed in by Kane and the England striker lifted his arm in celebration, and made sure he told all of his team-mates that he had got a touch.

"He [Kane] said it touched his shoulder but I don't know".

"I know I'm up against a good side with a great manager behind them, but it's a game we can win".

Spurs enjoyed their own slice of luck to regain the lead shortly after as Eriksen's delivery from wide evaded everybody in the box and deceived Butland on its way into the net for his fifth goal in three matches.

"For us it would be a massive achievement to finish top four for a third time".

Stoke are four points from safety with five games left, while Tottenham consolidated their grip on fourth place in the race to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish. Pochettino was unnecessarily harsh on Alderweireld - business is business but on form he'd walk into any side in the Premier League.

The alertness of Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland to scamper off his line and save at the feet of Son Heung-min after he had latched onto Dele Alli's intelligent lofted through ball kept the score goalless before the interval.

"It's the first time we've lost two games in a row this season and now we have to recover and try again, go back to the basics and win games", said a frustrated Guardiola.

"The effort and commitment I cannot ask more of, we are just not getting the breaks".

And Eriksen added: "He celebrated like it was his goal so I will have to take his word for it".

Premier League on Twitter: After review, the Premier League Match Centre has awarded Spurs' second goal to Christian Eriksen.

Alli latched on to a pass played over the Stoke defence, patiently waited for support in the penalty area and picked out Eriksen with a well-placed cut-back, the Denmark global stroking the ball into the bottom-left corner.
