Harry Kane has admitted his goal drought had made him “moody” after opening his account for the season in Tottenham’s 4-1 thrashing of Manchester City.

Kane scored Spurs’ third goal at White Hart Lane on Saturday as he steered Cristian Eriksen’s free-kick into the net on the rebound.

It was his first goal in nine appearances for the Londoners this season, and in what was his seventh Premier League match.

Speaking afterwards, the 22-year-old striker said: “Every striker who is not scoring gets a litte bit moody and I’m no different.

“I’m really delighted to score, but most importantly to get a victory over a side at the top of the table.”

Manager Mauricio Pochettion was delighted that his 31-goal top scorer of last season had got off the mark in 2015/16.

“It was not an easy finish and I’m really pleased for him as it takes the pressure off.”
