STOKE, England (AP) - Tottenham’s slim chances of securing a Champions League spot ended Saturday with a 3-0 loss at Stoke in the Premier League, continuing a late-season slump for the visitors.

Charlie Adam and Steven Nzonzi gave Stoke a 2-0 lead by halftime and Tottenham’s day got worse when Vlad Chiriches was sent off for a second booking in the 51st.

Mame Biram Diouf scored the third by turning in a cross from Marko Arnautovic, who caused problems for the visitors throughout.

Tottenham only has two wins in its last eight games, a run that has seen it fall out of contention for a top-four finish. It remains a point ahead of Southampton in the last Europa League spot in sixth place.

Stoke is ninth, with little to play for in the final two rounds.
