Harry 'buzzing' after Hornets triumph
29 December 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane says the players “couldn’t be happier” after rounding off the calendar year with three wins in a row.
The young striker once again epitomised the team’s desire at Watford on Monday as we came through a real test of character with maximum points thanks to Heung-Min Son’s 90th-minute winner.
Erik Lamela was also on target earlier in the game at Vicarage Road as we built on our recent victories over Southampton and Norwich City to strengthen our standing in the upper reaches of the Premier League table.
Harry admitted Watford were a tough nut to crack both before and after the dismissal of Nathan Ake for a foul on Lamela midway through the second half but, nevertheless, he was thrilled with the 2-1 final outcome.
“Playing away from home at Vicarage Road is always going to be a difficult game, Watford have been playing very well and they made it tough for us,” said the England international.
“They played some long balls and fair play to them but we did well, we stuck at it and we kept trying to play. Even when they went down to 10 men – sometimes it makes it even more difficult because everyone just drops off and you have to be patient.
“To get the goal in the last minute is always special, though, and to win the game is very important. We’ve had two tough games in three days and three wins out of three now over a tough Christmas period so we couldn’t be happier, we go into the New Year buzzing and hopefully we’ll continue it at Everton next week.”
