Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Kane display against Watford
By Amir Mir
Harry Kane scored a brace as Tottenham thrashed Watford 4-1 at Vicarage Road on Sunday afternoon – and fans on Twitter hailed the striker’s performance.
The 23-year-old opened the scoring after 27 minutes when Kieran Trippier’s cute pass was finished by the England international.
Kane doubled his side’s lead six minutes later when he volleyed home a magnificent cross from right-back Trippier, who was replacing the suspended Kyle Walker in the starting XI.
Midfielder Dele Alli added a third before half-time before Kane turned provider after the break and helped Alli score his second of the game.
All in all, fans were delighted with the all round performance of Kane, who scored, assisted and defended well for his team.

Supporters on social media were particularly impressed with the cross from Trippier which allowed Kane to score his second of the game.
Fans felt that Kane deserved to be named Man of the Match as his side moved up to third in the Premier League table.
They can be overtaken by north London rivals Arsenal, who play Crystal Palace later on in the day, but they will remain in the top four as they have a better goal difference than fourth-placed Manchester City.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
