Tottenham Hotspur’s nervy 2-1 win against Southampton on Saturday helped to end a three-match run without a victory.
The home side certainly made hard work of the match against the Saints with Serge Aurier and Hugo Lloris both having moments which they would certainly rather forget.
Harry Kane once again proved to be Tottenham’s match winner when he found the back of the net just before the half time break to restore his side’s lead.
The forward insisted that the way the players dug in on Saturday was proof of that they all cared about the club and are willing to roll up their sleeves and fight in a display of team spirit.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Kane said, “This was a massive statement to the fans and the club to show how much the players want to fight for this club,’
“Whenever you go through a tough spell that’s all you can do – dig deep and find ways to win. I know the crowd would have enjoyed that win.
“Of course, it wasn’t the prettiest we’ve ever had at home, but it shows how much we all care about the club.”
When quizzed on whether there were different agendas within the Spurs dressing room, Kane added: “No. I think this performance speaks for itself in terms of everyone fighting for the badge. All I can say is that I am proud of all my team-mates.”

While several of Tottenham’s stars haven’t been in the best of form in recent outings, accusations that they haven’t tried hard enough are baseless. Even Christian Eriksen was certainly trying his hardest and covering a lot of ground despite not having the best of outings.
Hopefully, this result marks the beginning of a turn around in Tottenham’s fortunes, beginning with the visit of Bayer Munich to North London this evening.
