Tottenham 3-0 Stoke City: Soldado PK sparks routine Spurs win

Roberto Soldado's fourth penalty of the season helped Tottenham to a 3-0 Premier League win over Stoke City at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

The Spaniard coolly converted from 12 yards in the 37th minute after Ryan Shawcross had handled an Emmanuel Adebayor volley. Soldado failed to convert several other chances from open play, but it mattered little as Tottenham made the game safe after the interval to secure a first home win under Tim Sherwood.

Mousa Dembele doubled the hosts' lead in the 65th minute as he sent a low shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards, and four minutes later Aaron Lennon volleyed home a third.
