Harry Kane missed out on a goal of his own but was named man of the match against Everton.
The Tottenham striker was in fantastic form as his confidence continues to grow and was instrumental in creating Roberto Soldado’s winner after tackling Gareth Barry.
“It feels good to get the win because it was tough out there,” he said. “Everton are a great side and it was a good battle between both teams. I’m absolutely buzzing to come away a winner.
“We’ve been working on pressing higher up the pitch and creating opportunities. Obviously I caught (Barry) on the ball. It’s good to see what the manager has been working on working out on the pitch.”
Kane tangled with Muhamed Besic in the area and went over late on, but there was no penalty awarded.
“I think it was 50-50,” he said. “Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don’t. It was a tangle of legs and it made me go down but sometimes late in the game the refs don’t give them. But we got the win in the end so it doesn’t matter.”
