Tottenham Hotspur produced a stunning performance to beat Manchester City and remain at the top of the Premier League table on Saturday evening with a 2-0 win – and Jack Grealish has applauded one Spurs star on Instagram.
Kane, 27, has now been involved in 24 goals already this season despite clocking up just 15 appearances in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s side. Scoring 13 times, he has also created 11 goals – and laid on another assist on Saturday.
But it was his movement that helped the create the first. Dropping in deep, Kane dragged Manchester City’s central defenders with him allowing Tanguy Ndombele to find Son Heung-min to run through and score with aplomb.
He then created Gio Lo Celso’s goal, running from deep with the ball and timing his pass to perfection – allowing the Argentina international to run onto the ball and finish under Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson. Kane posted on Instagram.
It was an excellent performance from Spurs, who have now conceded just one goal in their last four Premier League matches. The combination of Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld is seemingly working at the heart of the defence.
Kane earned plenty of plaudits once again, with the England skipper in the form of his life. Even if his name was not on the score sheet, Kane was many supporter’s man of the match – and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish responded to his post.
He commented: “You’re a joke”.
