After the disappointment of losing to Manchester United last week, Tottenham responded in the best possible fashion after getting a narrow and close fought victory over Leicester City.
Despite playing against the league’s bottom club, Tottenham knew that they were going to be in for a tough match since Leicester have been performing well up until now. It proved to be the case after Leicester not only came back from being two goals down, but they also threatened to grab a winner at White Hart Lane. It could have been a serious possibility had it not been for the brilliance of striker Harry Kane.
The striker became the league’s leading scorer after his hat-trick against Leicester City and this led to praise from manager Mauricio Pochettino.Kane has been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League. After being highly reluctant to start him in the league, Pochettino put his faith in the former England under 21 player only towards the end of 2014.Kane had already been scoring a lot of goals in the Europa League. It did not take long forKane to establish himself as one of the league’s top goalscorers. He has now gone past Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero for the first time this season.
“A striker who scores three goals is always great. It is fantastic for Harry. I am happy for him and for the team. Now we look forward and keep going.It’s an important 3 points after defeat at Old Trafford. We’re a young team & we need to keep improving. We conceded three goals which is too much at home and we need to improve our defensive game,” said the manager. “I’m delighted to get a hat-trick but most important was the win. Credit to them they never gave up,” said Kane.
