History is written by the leaders and o Harry Kane he has earned with his merit this title – medal. How much more so since he is no longer only the leading scorer of the England national team, but also the first… machine gun in its history Tottenham! With his 226th goal for Spurs, Kane equaled Jimmy Greaves as the club’s all-time top scorer, but above all he secured a much-coveted 1-0 win against Fulham which gave hope again to the Tottenham camp for entry into its top four Premier League.
By the time they got to that nerve-wracking double, however, Tottenham… suffered against the hosts. Marco Silva’s players entered the field better and more energetically, but they ran into the amazing Joris who stopped the efforts of Bobby (10′) and Harrison Reed (20′), while in the 25′ Mitrovic’s header also needed luck who passed few outs.
While the goal was not coming for Fulham, Tottenham were moving up the field and could have found the net with Emerson (37′), before the home team responded with a Willian shot that was again blocked by Joris. Everything looked like the half would remain at zero, when suddenly Kane’s class spoke! On 45+1 the English forward played with his back to goal and took a fantastic shot just outside the area, making it 1-0 for Spurs at a crucial moment. Ten minutes after the return of the two teams for the second half, Kane could have scored a second goal to sit alone on the throne of the top scorers of the club, but Leno neutralized his header with a super intervention. The pace dropped as the minutes ticked by, with Fulham finding it dark against a well organized Spurs.
And after Joris again said no to Solomon’s foul shot (89′), Tottenham sealed an important double that brought them back to the road of success and -3 from the top four.
