Tottenham Hotspur's first home game of the Premier League season sees them welcome Stoke City to White Hart Lane on Saturday.

After opening weekend defeats, both sides are yet to get off the mark in the top flight this season and Mauricio Pochettino and Mark Hughes will be looking to make amends on match-day two.
