Harry Kane delivers verdict on Tottenham win v Bournemouth, comments on milestone
By Dominic Toner
Harry Kane has revealed his delight on Twitter following Tottenham’s comfortable victory over Bournemouth and was thrilled to reach 20 Premier League goals for the season.
The 23-year-old starred on Saturday afternoon as Spurs eased past Bournemouth 4-0 at White Hart Lane.
Mousa Dembele, Heung-Min Son and a rare Vincent Janssen goal, accompanied by Kane’s milestone goal, meant they moved just four points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have cranked up the pressure on Chelsea in the title race, who travel to Old Trafford to face Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United on Saturday.
Kane has now scored 20-plus league goals for three consecutive campaigns and has proved that he is no one-season wonder.

Kane has emerged as a crucial player for Spurs since he broke into the first team and is pivotal to Pochettino’s side.
The England international has been in sensational form for the north London club this season, but a couple of injury setbacks have reduced him to the sideline on occasions.
However, he has still managed 20 goals in his 24 Premier League games so far and has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Kane has been tipped to challenge Alan Shearer’s league tally of 260 goals, but still needs 191 top flight goals to draw level.
