Adebayor seals win for Spurs over Stoke
Emmanuel Adebayor slid home a late winner to lift Tottenham back above north London rivals Arsenal into a Champions League qualifying position as they saw off 10-man Stoke 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium.
Andre Villas-Boas' men had laboured in search of a potentially lucrative winner after Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam was dismissed in the 47th minute for a second bookable offence.
But Adebayor tapped in a cross from Clint Dempsey from close range in the 83rd minute to take them back up to fourth after Dempsey had cancelled out Steven Nzonzi's opener.
