Pride – the key word from Harry Kane and the rest of the squad as they departed Stamford Bridge last night.
Naturally disappointed with how things panned out, Harry stopped to reflect on how the match unfolded and, most importantly, to take a step back and appreciate where we are.
It’s well documented now, but to recap, Harry scored his 25th Premier League goal of the campaign to put us ahead and Heung-Min Son made it 2-0 before the break. Gary Cahill replied on 57 minutes and Eden Hazard equalised seven minutes from time. The result secured the title for Leicester City.
“Of course we're all gutted,” said the striker. “We went 2-0 up but we've had a few of these (matches) this season where we've come out in the second half and not finished the game off.
I'm so proud of this team and club. We put it all on the line but unfortunately it just wasn't enough. We learn and come back stronger! 1/2— Harry Kane (@HKane) May 2, 2016
“When you are playing Chelsea at their home ground and they obviously want to try and win, it's difficult. It’s something we've got to learn from.
“It's a 2-2 draw and everyone is coming away as if we lost and they are coming away like they won the league. That shows how far we've come and what type of team we have.
“We battled well, we put in so much effort and it's just gutting that we couldn't get the win. That's football. It's been a great season and we have to stick together and move forward.”
Congratulations to Leicester on what they achieved. Finally thanks to all the fans! Let's finish the season strong now! #COYS— Harry Kane (@HKane) May 2, 2016
The point guaranteed a place in the top four as Manchester United can no longer catch us.
Manchester City can only draw level on points with us now and we’re three points ahead of Arsenal with two matches remaining. City play Arsenal at the Etihad on Sunday (May 8).
Before that, we face Southampton at the Lane on Sunday in a 1.30pm kick-off, our final home match of a memorable campaign.
“I feel incredibly proud of the lads and what we've achieved this season and now it's a matter of finishing it off,” declared Harry.
