Harry Kane scored his 150th goal in the Premier Lague as Spurs left it late to win against West Bromwich Albion. West Brom almost seemed certain to have snatched a point until Kane popped up to flick a header in the 88th minute to win it for Spurs. The win has helped Spurs climb up to second in the table, prompting fans and pundits to consider Spurs as a challenger for the title.
Mourinho praised Kane for reaching the milestone, but quashed the title talks by saying “West Bromwich gave us a very difficult match. The way they played meant we had to play even better. I am pleased that we are compensating in away games for the points we have dropped at home but it is too early to get excited about anything at the moment. In a lot of countries we might be talked about as title hopefuls, but it is hard in the Premier League. You can have a very good season and still find Liverpool or Manchester City ahead of you. I am happy that Kane reached another landmark, but mostly I am pleased to have Harry playing for us. His all-round game is worth just as much as his goals. As well as scoring goals he recovers the ball and wins so many challenges.”
