Stoke secured their fourth Premier League win in a row to set a new club record after another assured and professional performance which saw them come from behind against a Wolves side in danger of getting caught up in a battle at the foot of the table.

Stoke made it three wins on the bounce by putting an end to Spurs’ record breaking run of good form on an afternoon where despite riding our luck, deserved every one of the three points we got in a performance that typified the attitude and mentality that some had feared was gone.

Stoke built on their mini revival of late with a well earned win at Goodison Park on a day when both sets of fans bid farewell to an Everton legend.

Again, it wasn’t a great performance but there was some good play in there and it was more a case of most players being on top of their game as opposed to the other way round which had sadly been the trend for many weeks. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that our successive league wins had the central defensive partnership of Huth and Shawcross, the fact that we also kept a clean sheet was the icing on the cake for the many baying for this partnership to be reinstated.
