Injured Spurs star Harry Kane has joked that it was more stressful watching his team-mates than taking to the field himself after the North Londoners edged out Southampton 3-2 in the FA Cup fourth-round replay.
The home side were second best for most of the encounter with the Saints dominating possession and fashioning several chances.
Even Jose Mourinho admitted after the game that the away side were the better team but insisted that his players deserved the victory for the effort they put in (Eurosport).
While Tottenham struck the first blow, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side came back and deservedly went on to lead 2-1 with goals from Shane Long and Danny Ings.
It looked like the Lilywhites were on their way out of the competition but they managed to mount a spirited comeback in the final fifteen minutes and turned it around courtesy a well-taken goal by Lucas Moura and a Son Heung-min penalty.
After the game, Kane took to social media to post the following message:

Just two games into this month, our decision to not sign a striker in January already looks like it is going to cost us. While we have managed to win both games, it is clear that we are missing a presence up front who can hold up the ball and facilitate counter attacks. While we should be cautious about not rushing Kane back, I believe we will end up doing that because we have no choice.
