Tottenham striker Harry Kane has said that the showing from him and his team mates in the 1-1 draw with West Brom on Saturday was “not good enough”.
The Lilywhite came into the game off the back of a 2-1 win over German giants Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, a match in which they had to come back from 1-0 down to secure the three points, Kane netting the equaliser.
The clash against the Baggies went very much the same way, with Solomon Rondon’s goal in the fourth minute sending Spurs into the half time break behind, and it was the England striker who again rescued a result from the match, although this time there was no winning goal to be found.
Speaking after the game, Kane admitted that the team need to look at why they are starting so sluggishly, but delivered the damning verdict that the overall performance simply was not good enough.
He told BBC Sport on their website: “We have to look back and see why we were slow getting going in the first half. But it’s not good enough.
“It leaves us quite far behind in the league.”
Kane is right in his assessment of the league table, with the result leaving Spurs 10 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City ahead of their clash against Huddersfield, while Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Burnley means Mauricio Pochettino and his men find themselves in fifth, behind their north London rivals.
