Spurs’ comeback against Leicester ‘are games you will never forget,’ Kane says.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane celebrated an amazing victory over Leicester, as substitute Steven Bergwijn scored twice in stoppage time to secure a 3-2 triumph.

Spurs had squandered a number of chances and were 2-1 down in the fourth of five additional minutes when Bergwijn levelled before scoring the winner 80 seconds later. Bergwijn had been fortunate just to be booked moments earlier for pushing Caglar Soyuncu.

‘What an emotional rollercoaster,’ the England captain added. To score two goals in such a manner – these are the games that you will never forget in your career.

‘In general, we deserved to win. We were the superior team. We were unhappy to fall down 2-1, but we were generating opportunities. We never surrendered, and Stevie’s appearance made all the difference.’

Bergwijn was introduced after 79 minutes, just after James Maddison scored Leicester’s second goal of the match, after Patson Daka’s 24th minute effort.

Antonio Conte’s supporters continued to sing his name long after the last whistle. Kane opened the scoring for Spurs and deserved to be on the winning side following an excellent individual performance.

Bergwijn was linked with a transfer away from Spurs earlier this month, but his stunning intervention propelled them to fifth place, ahead of Arsenal. That will be especially nice for Conte, who was incensed that Arsenal convinced the Premier League to postpone last Sunday’s north London derby despite having just one confirmed case of Covid-19 in their squad.

‘When I come in, I want to prove myself, and I am really thrilled to have scored two goals,’ the Dutchman explained. We demonstrated that we are a team by returning.

‘The manager instructed me to score goals, create problems for the defenders, and maintain a tight relationship with Harry. It’s incredible. We have a number of significant games coming up and need to capitalize on this.’

Tottenham will now approach Sunday’s London derby against Chelsea with confidence, despite being eliminated from the Carabao Cup earlier this month by Conte’s previous side.

The Italian stressed Bergwijn remained a part of his plans while also requesting transfer market additions.

‘Steven is a vital player, and we must strive to develop and strengthen rather than lose players. I believe he is content to be with us. He may start a game or come in and modify it if he is in good physical shape.

 

‘It was an incredible game. We were not deserving of a loss or even a tie. We produced several opportunities and were frequently unfortunate.

‘It will be critical if there is an opportunity to upgrade the team in current transfer market. We are in a terrific position, but we recognize how tough it will be to maintain it throughout the season.’

Meanwhile, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers lamented his team’s lack of discipline after they were denied victory. ‘The third goal was very naive from Youri Tielemans,’ he continued. We handed up the points to Tottenham.’
