Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has praised striker Harry Kane after he scored a late winner to help us defeat Crystal Palace earlier in the day.

The win takes us to 4th place in the standings ahead of Chelsea who slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester United.

Despite having controlled the game, we struggled to find a breakthrough and Kane was denied early on by a save from Wayne Hennessey.

However, when the game looked as if it was heading for a draw, Kane rose to strike home a corner from Christian Eriksen in the 89th minute, which sealed three points for us.

“It was brilliant because (Harry) had some chances to score and missed but it’s good for him to keep going and trying, in the end he had determination and it’s fantastic that he can provide the three points for the team,” said Mauricio (quoted by club’s official website).

“I’m so happy because in the end we’ve won the game, late, but fully deserved. I think the performance was good, we fully deserved the victory and I’m so happy because we fought a lot and dominated the game.

“We were confident and the team in the second half… it’s true that we were pushing a lot, we dominated the game completely and in the end we are so happy because the victory puts us in a very good position in the table, fighting to finish in a good position at the end of the season.”

Our manager was forced to make a change after Jan Vertonghen took a knock during training on Saturday. Eric Dier dropped back to play alongside Davinson Sanchez in the defence.

“It was fantastic, I think the whole team played so well and the performance was very good,” added the manager.

“The two centre-backs were fantastic with their defensive line, Hugo (Lloris) as well of course, and a clean sheet against a very difficult team like Palace is a reason to praise the team so I’m very happy.

“I was very pleased because Eric is a player that can play in different positions and it doesn’t affect his performance. Today we played him and Davinson and they were fantastic.”

Kane has truly been our saviour for the past 3 seasons. He is reaching an all new level and is absolutely world-class. I am sure that Kane would win us trophies in the coming seasons as we continue to rise up the English football ladder.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
