Harry Kane reveals roller coaster of emotions as Tottenham Hotspur beat Leicester

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed that he felt a “rollercoaster of emotions” following the 3-2 comeback win against Leicester City in the Premier League. He was directly involved in scoring the opener for his side as well as the winner netted by Steven Bergwijn in the dying moments of the match.

The Englishman had a great game on the night and could have been scored a hat-trick had his finishing been on point. The forward saw his shot get cleared on the goalline by Luke Thomas just before the ten-minute mark, while another header in the 18th minute struck the crossbar.

The 28-year-old opened the scoring for his team before halftime after the Foxes had one of their own against the run of play. He had another opportunity when Lucas Moura put him through on goal, but the resulting shot was skied high into the stands. However, he rectified the misses as his through ball saw Bergwijn round past Kasper Schmeichel to give them the three points deep into injury time.

Speaking in the post-match interview (h/t Eurosport), Kane conveyed that he could never forget a game of this sort while applauding the team’s mentality to keep fighting until the end.

“What a rollercoaster of emotions that was. Overall I think we fully deserved the victory to be honest. We were the better side, disappointed to go 2-1 down with 15 minutes to go but we were creating chances. You’ve just got to never give up. To get two goals like that in stoppage time, it’s a game you’ll never forget for the rest of your career.”

Great performance! But improvements needed!

It was great to see how the team were going for the win despite scoring the equaliser just before the final whistle was blown. That alone shows us how Antonio Conte has instilled his winning mentality into the squad.

Tottenham did not give up even if their great performance was not rewarded until the final moments of the league fixture. It is said that one manufactures their own luck and on Wednesday that was certainly the case.

However, we must show improvements in our finishing as Spurs could have easily put the match to bed way sooner. We should keep raising our standards moving forward and not rely on heroic last-minute performances.

The England captain was not the only one who failed to take his chances on the night. Players like Davinson Sanchez, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp all had opportunities that went begging.

With Chelsea next in the league, we cannot afford to not take our chances against Tomas Tuchel’s men. They have already beaten us twice in the Carabao Cup semi-finals despite their own issues and Spurs will now need to repay them in kind.

As long as we take out chances and keep things tight at the back, there is no reason why we cannot trump the European champions.
