'It hurts' - Harry at Stamford Bridge
27 November 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Two words were enough for a dejected Harry Kane to sum it all up at Chelsea.
“It hurts,” said the striker as an excellent first half display ended up counting for nothing as we slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Everyone connected with Spurs feels Harry’s pain.
We impressed against the current Premier League leaders, bossed the first 44 minutes and took the lead via Christian Eriksen’s cracker.
But Pedro levelled just before half-time and you felt momentum shift towards the home side.
Chelsea scored six minutes after the break and although we came back into the game and pinned the Blues back late on, we couldn’t find a second goal.
“We’re gutted today and it’s the same in any London derby, if you don’t win it’s disappointing. It hurts,” said Harry. “That’s football but we have to get on with it and prepare for Swansea.
“Everyone knows we probably played better than Chelsea over the 90 minutes but we’ve come away with nothing and that’s difficult.
“It’s been a tough week to go out of the Champions League and now lose here but it’s early, we’ve still plenty of games left in the Premier League and Swansea next week is definitely one we’re now looking at to try and get back to winning ways and put this week behind us.”
