In his post-match interview, Harry Kane admitted Tottenham Hotspur deserve to be where they are in the table but insisted he is determined to help the club improve.
Tottenham travelled to Anfield this afternoon in a battle between two teams chasing European football.
Spurs started the day above Liverpool, but have now been leapfrogged by Jurgen Klopp’s side after being on the wrong end of a 4-3 defeat.
A disastrous opening 15 minutes saw Spurs fall three goals behind in what felt like a repeat of the Newcastle debacle.
A Kane goal in the first half gave the Lilywhites hope, before Heung-min Son calmly finished to really set up a contest.
Richarlison, on as a substitute, pulled Spurs level in injury time with his first Premier League goal of the season. But just moments later, Diogo Jota gave Liverpool the lead once more and all three points.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Kane gave a very frank analysis of the current state of affairs at Tottenham.
He said: “The table doesn’t lie, where we are doesn’t lie. We’ve got some fantastic players, we have some fantastic moments, but overall, as a team we are not playing good enough.
“We need to find a way to get through moments when things aren’t going our way. We need to find a way of starting games where we’re not under the cosh.
“We deserve to be where we are, that’s what the league table’s for. We have four games [left]. This one is going to be difficult to take, but we have a week until the next game and we have to look at it back and try and move on.”
When asked about his own commitment to the club, Kane added: “I live in the moment, I live to give 110% every day at every place I am.
“There are loads of positives from today, we can’t just forget that because we lost. We did some good things, especially in the second half.
“But overall, football’s about winning. You have to find a way to draw or even go on to win, and this is just a sucker punch for it to happen like that.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Harry Kane continues to be an exemplary leader both on and off the pitch, and I dread to think where this club would be right now without him.
He must be gutted to be on the losing side today, but fair play to him for being so honest in his interview.
