Harry: “We were together from the first minute”

Harry Kane was proud of the team’s response to a week to forget with victory at Aston Villa on Sunday.
The striker admitted we’d ‘dropped below our standards’ in defeats against Arsenal and Dinamo Zagreb, and he was there to lead from the front as we turned our form back around with a convincing 2-0 win at Villa Park.
Harry played his part in the opener, a one-two that allowed Lucas to cross for Carlos Vinicius to tap in his first Premier League goal, and then converted from the penalty spot after being brought down by Matty Cash in the second half.
Five wins on the spin, including three in the Premier League, before last week, this result made it four wins in our last five and lifted us up to sixth, three points off Chelsea in fourth, with nine league games remaining.
Reflecting on a key win, Harry told us: “We dropped below our standards in the last couple of games in all aspects, really, and it was important for us to bounce back, not just for us, but for the club, for the fans, for everyone watching.
“It was an important game. Villa have been great this season, right up there in the league and any game away from home in the Premier League is tough. We’ve come here and done the job. I’m proud of the boys, the way we responded.
“We were together from the first minute, dug deep, defended when we had to and put away our chances when we had them.
“There is a long way to go from now until the end of the season, so we’re not getting carried away. It was important we all stuck together, players on the pitch, everyone on the bench, everyone involved with the squad, and we need that going forward if we want to have any type of success from now until the end of the season.”
