And while Kane remains thirsty among equals, Tottenham is no exception to the controversy about the top 4 finish by a long layer of powder.

“As a manager, I know I have a world-class striker who can score in every game, and every player knows that having Harry on your team makes you strong. than. But at the same time Harry started to understand this team, and he started to like the way we played together and with his teammates.
“I think he deserves to win something in his career because we are talking about a great player. It was a good performance. It’s right to have ambition and it’s important to have goals – a difficult goal because getting to fourth place is not easy, but I know we are ready to fight in every game.”
They can blow hot and cold like a hair dryer, but Conte’s inconsistent kings play top opponents West Ham this weekend – and Arsenal still haven’t tiptoed onto Seven Sisters Road for the north London derby they had so desperately knocked out two months ago. “We just have to keep winning,” Kane said.

But there was no patch or tape on the ground that Brighton could apply to their wounded pride as Spurs broke through eight minutes before the break by accident. Dejan Kulusevski left footed shot from over 20 yards, but Cristian Romero accidentally cleared the wrong foot of Sanchez.

Kane doubled Spurs’ lead in the 12th minute after the break, quickly parrying Rodrigo Bentancur’s cross, and he was also denied a blatant penalty in injury time.
