Kane reveals tactical work that helped Tottenham win over Everton

Tottenham WHL

The Spurs striker was a key figure in the crunch Sunday evening fixture.

Totenham's fightback to beat Everton 2-1 was a hugely positive result for fans of the North Londoners, not least because strike partnership Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado starred for the home side.

Kane epitomised Tottenham's determination and ability to get back into the game with their rivals for the Champions League positions.

The young striker played a big part in both of his team's goals, causing Tim Howard to spill his shot to Christian Eriksen for the equaliser and then chasing superbly from the front line to win back possession for Spurs just before half time, in a move that ended up with strike partner Roberto Soldado lashing home.

His performance drew praise from many commentators and former players, and proved that the Spurs graduate may just be the most important striker on the club's books.

After the game, Kane was naturally delighted with the result, but it is a sign of the young man's character that he highlighted both the tactical shift under Mauricio Pochettino that facilitated the second goal, as well as the fact Soldado finally got back on the scoresheet.

"It feels good to get the win, it was a tough game against a great side," said Kane. "It's great to be playing with players you've come through the ranks with. We worked hard for each other.

"We've been working on pressing high and creating opportunities, I caught him on the ball and we countered to get the goal. It's good to see that working on the pitch.

"Roberto Soldado has been playing great recently, he just needed a goal to get that confidence. I'm delighted for him and hopefully he can get many more."

And Spurs fans should get used to the 21-year-old starring for their club with his determined and straightforward attacking play after he revealed it is an aspect of his game he has always possessed.

"A direct attacking style is something I have had since I was a kid, whenever I see space I like to run into it and push the centre-halves back. I got a bit today and managed to do that. Hopefully I can continue to perform and we can continue to pick up wins for the team."
