“In the first-half we were disappointed; we created a few chances but were not clinical enough. ‘The second-half was just about fighting for the team and club and we did that and we got the goal we deserved. Towards the end of the game it went a bit crazy.”

“For us it was important to stop the losing streak,” Kane added. “At this point it might give us a little boost with a big game in the Champions League and then Southampton.

“Over the last week we have put ourselves under pressure but we have done it in the past and every game is a big game.”
