Dier salutes “boring” Kane

Following our 1-0 victory Eric Dier joked that Harry Kane’s record-setting goals are “getting boring” after our talisman snatched an 88th-minute winner against Crystal Palace.

Kane squandered a golden opportunity early in the second half but he more than made up for it with a superb header late on at Selhurst Park, securingvictory taking us into the top four in the Premier League.

It was the forward’s 150th goal in club football, and stand in defender Dier was full of praise for his record-breaking team-mate. He said:”It’s getting boring isn’t it, he just keeps getting the records. But he’s a class act, he just keeps getting the goals at vital moments,”

He added: “We like to leave it late here every year, we’re just really happy to get the goal. I think we thoroughly deserved it, we had so many chances.”

We absolutely dominated throughout and were frustrating at times, but the fine form of Wayne Hennessey and unusual profligacy in front of goal from Kane prevented us going ahead much earlier.

Kane was the hero though as he once again came up with the goods, and the 24-year-old claimed he was unaware of the milestone his goal marked.

“I didn’t even realise to be honest. I just want to keep scoring and help the team win games,” he said.
“We left that very late. I thought it wasn’t going to be our day, because we had a few chances, especially me, and Serge Aurier had one at the end too, but we kept going until the end and eventually got our rewards.

He added: “We had a tough patch, with a few tough games recently, now we have to keep that momentum going.”
