Both managers admitted after the game that the referee had made several mistakes, but Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was delighted with his side’s performance.
“You know football, sometimes it goes for you and sometimes against you. We need to keep calm because the decision is for the referee,” he told BT Sport.
“I am very happy because our performance was great and we played against a big, big side.
“My players were brilliant, and I’m very happy for our supporters after Wednesday because I know how they feel about the defeat to Arsenal.”
On Kane finally breaking his goalscoring duck, he added: “I think it was important for him to score, to take off the pressure and start to get a little bit more confidence. I think before he was under pressure.”
His opposite number Manuel Pelligrini added: “I know the goals were offside, but we played very well in the first half. We scored a goal and had two or three clear chances and Tottenham scored with their first shot.
“After that there was an offside goal, and two set pieces. One of them was offside again and after that they played very well.
“The Premier League is always very difficult, so we must continue working and playing how we did in the first 45 minutes.”
