Harry Kane delivers Twitter verdict on Tottenham win v Southampton
By Danny Wright
Harry Kane has admitted that he was on the edge of his seat as he watched Tottenham edge a win against Southampton.
Christian Eriksen and a Dele Alli penalty put Spurs ahead at the break but a 52nd minute goal from James Ward-Prowse meant that Mauricio Pochettino’s side had to endure a frantic end to the game in order to hang on to all three points.
The Tottenham striker was happy to see his side finish the game as 2-1 victors but he said that he would much rather be on the pitch than on the sidelines.
Kane twisted his ankle in his side’s 6-0 demolition of Millwall in the FA Cup quarter final and faces a few weeks out.
Luckily for the 23-year-old the international break is coming which gives him extra time to bring himself back to fitness without missing too many matches for his club.

“Yes boys! Great result! Good victory before the break! I much prefer being on the pitch then watching it,” said Kane on his personal Twitter account.

The victory meant that Spurs keep up the pressure on league leaders Chelsea but there is still a 10 point gap between the top two sides.
Manchester City’s failure to beat Liverpool on Sunday meant that they moved two points clear of Pep Guardiola’s third-placed side to further boost their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Kane has been in hot form for Tottenham this season and in all competitions and he has struck 24 goals in 29 appearances.
