(Crystal Palace – Tottenham 0-4) After a difficult first half away to Crystal Palace, Tottenham continued their festive football in the second half.
“Hopefully we can use this to ‘start’ the second part of the season,” Kane tells Viaplay after the second round stood in stark contrast to the first.
In fact, Palace had so many chances, pressing so hard, that Tottenham manager Antonio Conte was biting his nails on the touchline.
Recently, the pressure on the Italians has increased. Ahead of tonight’s game, Tottenham have just one win in their last four Premier League matches and fifth place in the table.
Early in the second half, in his 300th game for the club, Harry Kane realized he had had enough.
On a cross from the right, Ivan Perisic volleyed the ball towards the back post, where Kane stepped up and fired home the 1-0 slot.
– There’s a chapter from Kane, Viaplay studio Brede Hangeland confirms.
Five minutes later, youngster Brian Salvatierra played a delicious pass into the Crystal Palace 16-yard box and straight at Kane’s feet. The striker made it easy and clinched the score 2-0.
It gave the visitors the energy and pressure of Conte’s men to score more goals, which they got.
67 minutes played when Kane was on the move again and sent a beautiful pass to Son. The 30-year-old waited a very long time to put a shot on goal, but hurried on when he saw that it wouldn’t work. After looking, he sent a lace-up pass to Matt Doherty that slotted wide for a 3-0 lead.
– We didn’t have a good start after the bathroom break. We knew it wouldn’t be easy to get here. Evening game with the wind, cold weather, tough game away from home. We stayed in it for the first half and showed our quality in the end, Doherty tells Viaplay and adds:
– A wonderful evening.
But the party didn’t stop there, and suddenly Sun was also a top scorer. Barely 20 minutes from time, Kane played a high ball into the backroom, finding Son who pressed inside 4-0 and threw the mask in celebration.
With their first three league points since November 12, Spurs now have 33 points from 18 games. Even Manchester United, with one game less played, now has a two-point lead.
And on Saturday, Portsmouth will be waiting in the FA Cup, before visiting Arsenal for a real derby meeting in the next round of the league.
– It will be a tough game, Arsenal lead the league, we have to be ready. Kane told Viaplay that it will be an important match for the upcoming derby.
