Ramadan Sobhi started in Stoke’s 2-1 loss to Tottenham
Sobhi played his third consecutive game as a starter for the Potters after featuring for 70 minutes in Everton’s 2-1 defeat and for almost 80 minutes in the 3-0 loss against Arsenal
Stoke entered the game with 27 points still struggling down the relegation zone, while Tottenham on the other side held 64 points claiming to draw level with Liverpool in third place after their goalless Merseyside derby.
On the 23rd minute Son Heung-min was granted with the most dangerous attempt on Foster’s net as he received the ball from Delle Alli’s cross over the defenders, ran pass Martin but the keeper was able to keep a grab over the ball.
As the first half ended goalless, the second half witnessed a much blazing performance where Christian Eriksen opened the scoring for Spurs when Dele Alli managed to cut the ball from the defenders and offloaded it to the Danish who fired the ball to give his side the lead.
It took Mame Biram Diouf five minutes after the goal to equalize for his side as he bumped into Hugo Lloris trying to capitalize Shaqiri’s cross and the ball bounced perfectly for the striker as he netted the the first for the Potters.
On the 64th minute, Eriksen fired a powerful free kick from distance, regaining the lead for the Spurs. Few minutes after the goal, Sobhi left the pitch to Tyrese Campbell.
Following the result, Ramadan’s side still hold the 19th place in the table threatened with relegation while Tottenham share equal points with the above contenders Liverpool. Stoke’s next task will be a less challenging one away against West Ham on the 16th of April.
