Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to defeat Arsenal 2-1 in the North London derby on Saturday, with Harry Kane proving the goal-scoring hero once more.
The young forward is having a truly outstanding campaign but it hit new heights at White Hart Lane this weekend, as Mesut Ozil’s early strike was ultimately cancelled out by two second-half goals from the 21-year-old.
Kane has recently signed a new contract at Tottenham and that is no surprise when you consider how important he is for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
After their latest victory – which took them above Arsenal in the Premier League table – a number of Tottenham players went on social media to express their delight.
Kane was one of them, writing, “Wow, what a game. Atmosphere was incredible. The whole team was different class.”
It says it all about Kane that he directed the attention away from his wonderful brace and instead focused on a Tottenham team who had all done their bit for the cause.
Midfielder Ryan Mason also expressed his feelings, praising the Tottenham fans, and you can be sure this game will remembered for a long time to come.
Get in!!! We fully deserved that! The Lane was electric today, unbelievable atmosphere.. We hear you#COYS— Ryan Mason (@Ryan_Mason13) February 7, 2015
