Harry Kane admitted that Tottenham Hotspur struggled during the first half against Brighton.
Following a disappointing performance in the defeat to Chelsea on Sunday, Jose Mourinho’s players failed fill the North London support with any potential improvement in the opening forty five minutes and trailed 1-0 at the break.
The star striker claimed that the players showed more passion, energy in the second half with his effort on 53 minutes helping to swing the momentum of the match.
When asked what was said at half time, the 26-year-old revealed that it was a case of showing more energy and fight whilst also taking the game to the Seagulls.
Kane admitted that at times this season Spurs have not pressed their opponents in the right way and believed the second half was a vast improvement.
Spurs’ win along with Chelsea’s 2-0 home defeat to Southampton means that there is now just three points separating the rivals once again.
"It was a big shift to see the game out."
