Thanks for joining us today. Stay tuned for a full match report, stats, player ratings and all the best reaction from White Hart Lane.
All over at White Hart Lane, and Tim Sherwood can celebrate his first home win since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas.
Spurs will move level with Manchester United on 34 points with this victory ahead of their New Year's Day meeting with the champions at Old Trafford.
Lamela's pass is dummied by Chadli in an attempt to find Soldado, but the Stoke defence read his intentions and clear.
Lamela goes in late and hard on Pieters, who goes down in a heap with a cry of anguish. Yellow card from referee Friend.
Stoke have managed just two shots all afternoon, with Tottenham having peppered Sorensen's goal with 20 efforts of their own.
Lloris actually has to make a save as he comfortably gathers Crouch's header after a cross from the right on his line.
Chadli and Soldado combine, with the latter's deflected effort rolling across the face of goal but away from Lamela.
Catching practice for Lloris from a Stoke cross, with the Spurs goalkeeper having had very, very little to do today.
Lamela is certainly seeing plenty of the ball, but his latest attempt to get into the box sees him run into Pieters.
Lamela now finds Naughton haring into the box on the right, but his low cross is blocked by Cameron.
Almost an instant impact from Lamela, as a shocking backpass sends Adebayor through, he plays in Lamela, but the sub is denied by a last-ditch sliding tackle.
Another change for Spurs. Aaron Lennon makes way to a standing ovation following his first goal of the season, with Erik Lamela joining the fray.
It is turning into an unhappy Christmas period for Stoke, having shipped five at Newcastle and another three here today. With games against Everton and Liverpool to come it does not get any easier for Mark Hughes. And the game after that is away to Crystal Palace and one Mr Tony Pulis.
Have to say that will be game over for Stoke. Soldado's pass was miscontrolled by Adebayor before reaching its actual target of Lennon. The winger took the ball on his thigh before volleying a fine strike back across Sorensen and into the net.
Hughes makes an immediate change, with Jermain Pennant coming on for Palacios. Predictable boos for the former Arsenal man.
Stoke will have to throw a little more caution to the wind over the closing stages of this game, but have yet to test Lloris.
Fine, fine goal from Dembele. The Belgian midfielder showed good feet to work a yard of space on the edge of the area before drilling an unstoppable low shot into the bottom corner of Sorensen's net.
Well-timed challenge from Naughton to nick the ball away from Assaidi and give Stoke their first corner of the game.
Eriksen forces a sharp save from Sorensen with a low shot from the edge of the area after good inter-play between Adebayor and Dembele.
Real shame for Spurs as the excellent Paulinho is unable to continue after a clash with Adam. Etienne Capoue is the man to take his place.
Palacios is caught in possession in midfield, but does well to win the ball back and Pieters' eventual cross towards Crouch is flapped at by Lloris with everyone missing the ball.
CHANCE FOR SOLDADO!!! The Spurs striker has the opportunity to make it 2-0 after Lennon's pull-back into his path, but the shot lacks both conviction and power and is straight to Sorensen.
Good play from Soldado as he powers his way to the touchline, only for his cross to be gathered by Sorensen.
Have to say Dembele was slightly fortunate there. Walters was booked for a very similar challenge on the Spurs man moments earlier, who was also booked for some handbags with Shawcross. Referee Friend could easily have shown a second yellow.
Adam fires in a decent free-kick which curls around the wall, but doesn't have enough bend to bring it back in to trouble Lloris' goal.
Clumsy and cynical foul by Dembele on Walters as he fells the Stoke man from 30 yards out in a central position.
Walters is given offside and complains to the referee's assistant, who responds with a clear "Yes, you were," to the Stoke man. Replays show Walters was onside....
Eriksen flights in the corner, bu Nzonzi glances clear. Walters then concedes a free-kick in a dangerous position on the far corner of the penalty area after pulling back Dembele.
Soldado crosses towards Adebayor, but Shawcross gets to the ball first and clears his lines with ease.
Another half-chance for Paulinho but he again blazes high and wide after finding some space just inside the Stoke box.
Spurs deserve their interval lead, having dominated play for the opening 45 minutes. There may be some complaints over the penalty, but Shawcross was always taking a risk by raising his arms in the way he did.
Soldado and Eriksen combine to play in Paulinho, but the Spurs man is penalised after losing control of the ball.
Paulinho and Lennon combine to work their way into the Stoke box, but the latter's cross is cleared at the near post by Palacios.
Paulinho jinks away from his man and then lashes in a shot from outside the box which flies high and wide.
Sensible refereeing from Friend as he allowed play to go on before speaking to Adebayor and Nzonzi. All that was needed there.
Nzonzi has a silly swipe at Adebayor after the duo tangle, before Chiriches stretches to clear from Walters after a ball over the top.
More great skill from Paulinho in midfield, clipping the ball away from Nzonzi and Pieters, before the latter brings him down for a clear free-kick.
Spurs finally make the breakthrough, with Soldado sending Sorensen the wrong way with a cool penalty kick. Some Stoke players complained about the spot-kick, given how close Shawcross was to Adebayor when the ball struck his hands. What is likely to have persuaded referee Friend is that the Stoke defender jumped in to challenge with both of his arms raised above his head.
PENALTY TO SPURS!!! Adebayor's acrobatic effort hits Shawcross on the hands as he leaps to block and Friend points to the spot.
Lennon twists and turns to get away from Pieters and then clips in a fine cross which just evades Adebayor and Soldado thanks to Shawcross' flicked header. Fryers returns the ball into the area and Soldado glances his header wide of the target.
Eriksen, Soldado and Lennon combine, with the latter's cross too deep for Paulinho and Adebayor in the box.
Eriksen's pass finds Lennon on the right and he attempts to trick his way into the box only to be stopped in his tracks.
Superb sliding challenge from Dawson to deny Assaidi after the Stoke man had burst into the box from the left flank, jinked inside and was shaping to shoot.
Naughton attempts a raking cross-field pass but only succeeds in putting the ball out of play on the far side of the pitch.
Fine piece of defending by Wilkinson as he tracks the run of Eriksen after another superb flick from Paulinho played the ball into the Stoke box.
Ireland turns inside his own half and then plays a ball down the right channel towards Walters, but Lloris comes out to the edge of his area to gather.
Crouch and Walters look to combine before Tottenham clear, while Paulinho produces another party-piece in midfield with another fine flick to set Spurs on the attack, but Soldado sees the ball run out.
Adebayor plays in Fryers down the left, with the defender firing in a low cross into the six yard box which Sorensen drops onto ahead of the lurking Soldado.
Busy work from Lennon and he finds Soldado out on the right, but the striker's driven cross is easily claimed by Sorensen.
Adebayor slips the ball through Ireland's legs, but then fluffs his next pass and Nzonzi clears, with Dawson stopping Assaidi in his tracks with a firm tackle.
Play switches immediately to the other end of the field, with Adebayor's driving run then seeing him attempt to play in Lennon, but Nzonzi gets back to block.
Ireland and Crouch look to combine on the edge of the Spurs area, but the striker's touch lets him down and the chance has gone.
Wilkinson is given too much space on the right flank, but is unable to test the Spurs defence with his cross.
JUST WIDE BY SOLDADO!!! An outrageous piece of skill from Paulinho outside the Stoke area, flicking a pass between his legs to Soldado, who drives across the face of goal and narrowly wide.
GLORIOUS CHANCE FOR SPURS!!! Naughton's superb ball inside the full-back releases Lennon, who cuts the ball back to Adebayor. The big striker looks certain to score, but fails to find a clean contact and the chance is gone, with Sorensen blocking Eriksen's follow up.
Chance for Dawson from the resulting corner as he meets the ball unchallenged on the penalty spot, but only succeeds in launching his first-time shot into the Stoke fans in the corner of White Hart Lane.
Pieters gives the ball away and puts Stoke under pressure. Fryers' cross finds Lennon, who feeds Adebayor, but Pieters makes amends with a fine sliding block.
Lennon has a couple of chances to cross from the right flank, but allows himself to be closed down on both occasions.
The ball is given away by Eriksen in midfield (he's not had the best of starts) and Ireland looks to feed Walters, but there is too much weight on the pass and Fryers clears.
Another miserable set-piece from Eriksen, as he strikes the two-man wall as he looks to loft the ball into the area.
Palacios is now penalised for sliding in on Soldado. Referee Friend allowed play to go on, but awarded the free-kick on the advice of his assistant.
Just seen a replay of the Fryers-Walters incident. The Spurs defender definitely had his arm on the shoulder of his opponent, who went to ground as the contact was made. A real 50-50 call, which has gone in favour of the home side.
Aaron Lennon almost gets in behind Pieters, but the ball runs away from him and out for a goal-kick.
Tangle on the edge of the Spurs box between Walters and Fryers after a ball over the top. The Stoke forward goes to ground, but referee Friend is not interested.
Walters is off the field and the game continues. It was a very innocuous clash, and the Stoke man is now back in the fray, although moving gingerly for now.
The two teams make their way out onto the pitch to warm applause from the White Hart Lane faithful and the travelling Potters fans.
The surface at White Hart Lane does not look in the best condition after all the recent heavy rain. There are a few patches which look sparse on grass, but the sprinklers were still on prior to kick-off.
David Newman writes: "It's all very well having a large squad but it doesn't mean that every game has to have 4 or 5 changes. Tottenham have to arrive at a solid first 11 instead of over chopping and changing - injuries and suspensions allowing. Strong midfield and weak defence today but maybe we can get a 2-0 win against an even worse Stoke. They will put everyone behind the ball just like every other team that comes to White Hart Lane and it is about time we learnt how to overcome this if we want to progress. Eriksen and Adebayor to score."
Opta stat No.5: At White Hart Lane, Tottenham have only managed to score more than one goal in two of their last 11 games in the Premier League.
Opta stat No.3: Stoke have won just five points away from home in the Premier League this season; a joint league low along with Hull City (W1 D2 L6).
Opta stat No.2: Stoke have only failed to score in two of their 10 previous Premier League meetings with Spurs.
Opta stat No.1: Tottenham have only lost two of their 38 previous home league meetings with Stoke City (W28 D8).
Tottenham supporter Steve is concerned by some of Tim Sherwood's selections today, saying: "Not sure what Tim is doing with Naughton, I'd pick Fredericks over him all day. And where is Lewis Holtby??"
Spurs fan Georgio writes: "I support Spurs and our season hasn't been great but we need to put Lamela on more often."
Stoke fan Steve is still smarting from Boxing Day: "So can Stoke bounce back? We've got no Martin Atkinson. I'm going for 2-1 to Stoke - Assaidi and Crouch. And no reds for Stoke."
Zeeshan says: "The Tottenham back-line looks very shaky and I don't like Eriksen out wide. But Tottenham have to win to gain confidence before the Man Utd game. I'm going with 2-0."
Stoke endured a miserable Boxing Day, suffering a 5-1 defeat to Newcastle at St James' Park after two red cards in the opening 45 minutes. Wilson, Whelan and Adam all miss out at White Hart Lane, with Wilkinson, Palacios and Ireland brought in by Mark Hughes.
Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has made five changes to his starting line-up from the 1-1 draw with West Brom on Boxing Day, with Walker, Rose, Chadli, Holtby and Sigurdsson making way for Naughton, Fryers, Lennon, Paulinho and Dembele.
Stokie Phil writes: "Really worried for Stoke today after Boxing Day's disaster. To make matters worse had a nightmare last night were we conceded five again. Just hope Mark Hughes has picked them up enough to put in a shift. Lose today and we are right back in the relegation mix."
