Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win at Brighton, this evening.
Spurs survived a late surge from The Seagulls to hold on for all three points. Speaking after the game, Harry Kane was proud of the character his team had displayed after some disappointing recent results for the North London side.
“Today was about mentality, getting around the pitch, pressing high and harder and I think we did that,’’ Kane told BBC’s MOTD.
Kane also acknowledged the fact that Spurs were wasteful in front of goal, at times. Mauricio Pochettino’s team should have had the game finished off completely before Anthony Knockaert pulled one back in injury time for Brighton.
“We could have put it to bed and won 3-0 or 4-0 but it’s good to get back to winning ways. The gaffer will be pleased and we can build on this.” He added.
When asked about the penalty decision that led to Kane opening the scoring in the first half, the England international was diplomatic in his response.
“I didn’t see the penalty in real time but I spoke to one of their players and they said it was handball. Sometimes you get it and sometimes you don’t but it was given and it worked well for us.” He continued.
Spurs are now fifth in the league, six points off the top. Kane and co are on the road again, next Saturday, as they face Huddersfield in what will be their seventh league game of the season.
