Spurs boss Pochettino hails 2-goal Kane: He just keeps doing it

Spurs boss Pochettino hails 2-goal Kane: He just keeps doing it

Having already beaten Alan Shearer's calendar-year record for the most Premier League goals (39), the England worldwide also has two successive Golden Boots and has just equalled the all-time record for the number of Premier League Player of the Month awards, as his sixth has taken him level with Steven Gerrard.

Asked if Kane could break the record with 15 games still to play, Pochettino said: "He can do everything because of his mentality and how he is as a professional".

"He can achieve all that he wants because of his willingness to work".

But he says the loyalty of Kane, who has 125 Spurs goals in all competitions, makes him different to most modern players. He's showing he's more mature than last season and his performances are helping the team a lot. "In his mind, he always tries to help and play for the team".

The win takes Spurs level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, who have a game in hand against undefeated league leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

"It's so important to be there, fighting very close".

Rishabh Pant slams second-fastest T20 hundred
Pant blasted an unbeaten 116 off 38 balls against Himachal Pradesh as Delhi chased down a target of 144 with 10 wickets in hand. Pant's blitzkrieg ton, which came in just 32 balls, is now the second fastest century in T20 Cricket history.

Harry Kane bagged a brace, becoming Spurs' all-time record Premier League goalscorer, while Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen were also on target as the North Londoners kept in touch with the top four with a scintillating display.

The South Korea star was just happy to have a full-time role this season, saying: "I love playing now".

"It's impossible to beat Harry". No-one wants to sell their best players. "I saw some of the good signs of the players last week against Liverpool, and I saw some of the worst signs second half tonight", Allardyce said. Obviously, it's something I have to address now.

He added: 'It shocked me to be honest, I haven't seen it since I got here. "I've seen it, and I have to address it as quickly as possible".

Chelsea was unable to pierce Leicester's defence even after visiting left-back Ben Chilwell was sent off for a second bookable offense midway through the second half. As he gets used to more and more to the Premier League, it's definitely an area of improvement that we need more than anywhere else I think.

"The disappointing thing for us is, what would the game have finished like had we scored the first goal when Wayne's got disallowed?"
