Harry Kane has taken to social media to express his delight and relief at finding the back of the net against West Ham United on Tuesday.
There were a lot of question marks over Kane’s effectiveness under Jose Mourinho’s system following the 1-1 draw against Manchester United last Friday (Sky Sports).
The Spurs boss hit back at some of his critics and insisted that he would not be surprised to see the England captain find the back of the net against the Hammers (Football.London).
Mourinho’s prediction eventually came true as Kane was put through on goal by Heung-min Son late in the game as the away side threw bodies forward to get the equaliser.
The Spurs star turned on the afterburners to run past West Ham’s central defenders before calmly finishing past Lukasz Fabianski.
The strike was the 26-year-old’s first of the new decade as he was sidelined by a hamstring injury prior to the suspension of the league.
It was also his 137th strike in the game that marked his 200th Premier League appearance, with only Sergio Aguero having a better record after 200 matches with 138 strikes (Planet Football).
Kane took to Twitter to send the following message after the win:

Given how shattered he was towards the end, it was extremely impressive to see Kane turn on the afterburners as soon as he sniffed a potential oppurtunity. Once he went one on one with Fabianski, he was always going to find the back of the net. This strike will do wonders to his confidence and I would not be surprised if Kane now goes on a hot streak and scores around ten goals in the seven games we have left.
