Harry Kane’s three of the best against Chelsea
Fri 27 November 2020, 18:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane’s career exploded almost six years ago with a two-goal super show against a Chelsea team that would run away with the Premier League title in 2014/15.
Despite all the plaudits, the goals, the Golden Boots since, New Year’s Day, 2015, is a day Harry will never forget. That’s the day he opened the football world’s eyes to his talents as he ran John Terry and Gary Cahill ragged. Danny Rose, Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli also weighed in as we won 5-3.
There have been highs and lows against the Blues since then, and, as we spoke with Harry during a special photoshoot for our Official Formalwear Partner, HUGO BOSS, earlier this week, it was put to the England skipper what his top three matches against Chelsea might be, ahead of our latest trip to Stamford Bridge and such a fascinating clash on Sunday (4.30pm).
3 - Dele at the double
Lightning struck twice against Chelsea for Dele, who scored both goals in a 2-0 win at the Lane on 4 January, 2017 before repeating the trick in a 3-1 win at the Bridge on 1 April, 2018...
Harry: “The games where Dele scored twice against Chelsea are right up there. It’s difficult to split those two. The win at Stamford Bridge, I came off the bench for that one. It was my first game back after injury, and we were brilliant that day.”
2 - Penalty perfection
Harry’s second choice is only a couple of months ago - we went behind in the League Cup on 29 September, fought our way back, Erik Lamela levelled late and we scored five out of five to win the penalty shoot-out...
Harry: “The penalty shoot-out win earlier this season was great. That was big game right in the middle of a busy schedule at the start of the season and to come through it in the way we did, playing so well and coming back from a goal down to win the shoot-out, all five of us scoring, that was a nice feeling.”
1 - Here’s Harry!
After scoring regularly in the Europa League and League Cup at the start of 2014/15, and then when he began to feature more regularly in the Premier League, Harry showed the world what he could do with a two-goal masterclass in a 5-3 win against the champions elect on New Year’s Day, 2015...
Harry: “Yes, the two-goal game when we won 5-3, that’s definitely number one for me. That was the first time I’d played against Chelsea as a professional. We were brilliant that day, great memories.”
That brings us around to Sunday’s clash between two in-form teams at the Bridge.
We’re on a run of nine wins in our last 11 in all competitions and beat City last weekend, while Chelsea have won six on the spin. We go into the game top of the table, Chelsea in third.
Harry added: “This one is massive, yes, but every game is. If we manage to get through the next couple (Chelsea, Arsenal on 6 December), we’ve then got Palace, Liverpool, Leicester, Leeds, Wolves all coming up this month, all huge games, all just as difficult. There is a long way to go.”
