Tottenham Hotspur saw through a tough Brighton side last night.
The North London team won 2-1 on the night, thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Gareth Bale and they now stand second in the rankings only two points behind Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
Kane and co have been on fire in England and Europe for the majority of the season and have only lost on two occasions. The situation might have come to pass yet again last night but the new look Spurs side under Mourinho has a lot more grit to them and Kane was full of praise for his team.
Afterwards, the striker said: “We said it was a great chance to go second in the league and put ourselves up there. We had to grind it out.
“I’m delighted for Gaz to come on and make an impact and that’s what we need to win games. He’s had a mini pre-season with us, it’s about getting fit and sharp, we all know what he can do at the highest level.
“Every game he’ll get stronger, we need every player to make an impact.
“We have let points slip and today could have been similar but we are learning – these games are the ones you need to grind out.”
