Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld both took to social media to convey their delight at getting the win over Leicester City in Tottenham’s final home game of the season yesterday.
As expected, Spurs sat off Brendan Rodgers’ side and allowed their central defenders to push forward with the ball.
While Mourinho’s men hardly put a foot wrong defensively, the Foxes defence was exposed almost every single time they lost the ball in midfield, with Spurs springing quick counter-attacks.
All three of Tottenham’s goals came from clinical breakaways, with Kane putting away his first-half opportunities to great effect, taking the game beyond the Foxes.
The England captain was understandably delighted at netting a brace and helping his side to grab all three points.
Meanwhile, the clash against Leicester was also Alderweireld’s 200th appearance in a Spurs shirt and the centre-half admitted that he is looking forward to turning out on many more occasions for the Lilywhites.

Spurs Web Opinion
Kane has once again proven his doubters wrong and shown that he is more than capable of scoring the goals in irrespective of our style of play. In fact, a part of me thinks that this counter-attacking style might bring the best out of Kane as it will give him space to operate in. The likes of Kane and Son have generally tended to struggle when coming up against a low block but they look extremely deadly when faced with 3 vs 3 or 4 vs 4 scenarios on the break.
