It was written in the stars...
The home-grown striker, ‘one of our own’, Harry Kane had the final say as the final curtain drew over White Hart Lane.
Harry took his tally to 28 in all competitions this season - 22 in the Premier League, just two behind current leading scorer Romelu Lukaku - with what turned out to be the winner three minutes into the second.
Christian Eriksen provided assists for both goals, Harry provided a poacher’s touch to wonderfully-delivered free-kick while in the first half, Victor Wanyama powered home an early header from his corner. Harry also struck the crossbar and David De Gea denied Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son. Wayne Rooney later replied for United.
Victory secured second spot in the Premier League and completed our final season at the Lane unbeaten, 19 league games and four in the cup.
Harry spoke to us during a lap of honour, trying to take it all in. “It’s been an emotional day but what a finish,” he said. “To score the winner, to win the game and finish unbeaten here is something special.
“It’s emotional now, I’m sure when we all get home it will start to sink in a little.
What a way to finish at the Lane. Special feeling to score the winner. A day I will never forget. Thank you for your support this season. pic.twitter.com/1A7ogT0X59— Harry Kane (@HKane) May 14, 2017
“We’ve secured second spot, we’ve two games left and we can go out and enjoy it now. That’s progression from last season and we have to keep it going now. We have to keep working harder, keep getting better and hopefully next season we’ll finish first.
“This has been a proper send off to what has been an amazing stadium for us. I couldn’t be happier.”
