I wanted that goal so badly - Harry
09 November 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane’s eyes lit up when he was sent clear by Danny Rose to open the scoring in Sunday’s draw at the Emirates.
It was the moment he’d been waiting for – and he grasped it with both hands.
“I was absolutely buzzing with the goal,” he said. “It was my first time playing here, I wanted to score so badly and wanted to win.”
Unfortunately, we didn’t hold onto the three points despite a fine all-round performance.
Harry’s goal handed us a deserved lead at half-time after we’d had eight efforts at goal to Arsenal’s one.
The home side responded after the break, hit the woodwork and created chances but we weathered the storm and hit back, creating another five chances and forcing Petr Cech into fine saves from Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld. Harry and Christian also whistled efforts just wide.
However, Arsenal’s second surge brought Kieran Gibbs’ equaliser and that’s how it stayed as we made it 11 matches unbeaten in the Premier League.
“We played so well and had chances to go 2-0 up so we’re disappointed we didn’t get the win in the end,” added Harry.

“But perhaps in a couple of days when the dust settles we’ll probably say it’s a good point.
“We’ve had a tough week and I thought we played well here. It's just the way football goes. We're also undefeated since the first game of the season, which is great.
“As I said, I was absolutely buzzing with the goal and I’ll keep working hard and keep trying to do my best for the team.”
