Harry Kane makes his comeback vs Chelsea
Sunday was a special day for Tottenham.
The biggest story was the end of their 28-year hoodoo at Stamford Bridge.
Tottenham finally beat Chelsea on their home patch in a 3-1 away victory.
Dele Alli was the star of the show with a second half double, while Christen Eriksen scored a blinder on the stroke of halftime.
And then there was Harry Kane’s return in the final stages of the game.
Harry Kane: Tottenham’s aims for the rest of the season
After the game, Kane opened up about what success will look like for Tottenham this season.
Spurs, of course, will be moving into their new stadium at the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
According to the England international, as reported in the Times, Tottenham need to finish the season with a Champions League berth and lift the FA Cup:
I think Champions League football’s a must, and we’re in a great position. I think we’ve got to try and win the FA Cup. If we do that, we can say it’s been a very good season.
Obviously City have run away with the league this year, and fair play to them. But for us, it’s about maintaining the Champions League every year and hopefully we can do that, and trying to win a trophy. We’re in a good spot.
We’ve got a tough game against Manchester United in the semi-final, but if we can get through that we maybe play Chelsea or Southampton and go from there.
Kane also opened up about how he managed to comeback after just three weeks following his injury at Bournemouth:
The swelling went down quick, and whenever I get injured I prepare right and make sure I do everything I can to get the swelling down and get back on the pitch. I do the right things off the pitch, and I think that’s a big help.
I didn’t know how quickly I would be back, but I went away with one of the physios, done some rehab, and I knew last week it was looking good and I would be able to step it up. Thankfully I was ready for the game.
