'No doubt about it' - Hazard states whether Tottenham player is a cheat

By Amir Mir

Micky Hazard has defended Tottenham striker Harry Kane and stated that he is not a cheat following the 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The 23-year-old was awarded a penalty during the north London derby at White Hart Lane after going down following a challenge from Gabriel.

Hazard firmly believes that there was “no doubt about it” regarding the penalty incident as he was adamant that Kane is “no cheat”.

As a result of that win against their rivals, Spurs closed the gap to leaders Chelsea in the Premier League table to four points after they had beaten Everton earlier on in the day.

“100 per cent penalty,” Hazard wrote on his personal Twitter account. “No doubt about it. Our Harry is no cheat.”

It was a comprehensive win by Tottenham in front of their own supporters as they won the final north London derby to be played at White Hart Lane.

Kane played a big part in that performance, scoring from the penalty spot after Dele Alli had opened the scoring just moments before.

Over the course of the season, Kane has scored 21 league goals for his team from 26 matches, including scoring two goals and supplying two assists since his return from injury.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side now have the opportunity to close the gap at the top of the table to just one point when they take on West Ham on Friday evening at the London Stadium.
