However, Rooney plays a greater number of passes with his teammates, Rooney averages 40 passes per game while Kane only has 25 passes per game.
Kane said: “Maybe I have shut up a few people”.
“It’s only been seven games, but a few people were already saying “He’s a one-season wonder”.
Pochettino was full of praise for the attitude of his team following the victory but urged his Spurs players to stay grounded and focus on the task at hand.
If these mistakes aren’t cleaned up and it’s the midway point of the Premier League season, then the loss against Manchester United and the two draws versus Stoke City and against Leicester City will come back to haunt Tottenham later on.
“Do the “one-season wonder” comments hurt?” It got my juices flowing to try to prove people wrong.
“It is not easy coming through as a youngster but it makes me want to get better and the more people say it, the more I want to prove them wrong”. “You’d always say they are a bit weak”, Neville added.
“If you look at what he’s done, he’s transformed the team and definitely got a better bunch of lads”. Sturridge’s two goals against Aston Villa on Saturday highlighted his brilliance. Replays showed he had been offside when the initial free kick was taken – but few will disagree that he deserved his slice of fortune. It looked like Manuel Pellegrini’s side would run away with it and there were plenty of chances that were thwarted by the resilient Hugo Lloris. “It was a half-volley so I just thought “get good contact on it”. “It came quick towards me and it seemed to be slow motion”.
“Sometimes you need a bit of luck and I probably have not had that this season”. That’s what it’s like as a striker, sometimes you’ve got to ride the wave. Sometimes it goes for you, and today it did.
“A number of our young players are thriving in the league having played in the under-21 tournament during the summer – although they didn’t all embark on commercial tours of the Far East with their clubs as Harry had to with Spurs“. Dier said last week that the north London club has been “going about [their] business quite quietly” but the volume is increasing.
Previous year we were a little “samey”.
“We had the higher press, we were relentless in our running and that’s what we’ve been doing to teams this season”.
“It has to be something on a regular basis and this will give us a lot of confidence”. The most important thing is we are winning games.
“I think Daniel Levy had to back a horse and he’s chosen the coach”, Neville said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football. We did it past year here against Chelsea and Arsenal.
Otamendi might not have been the worst performer in Man City’s defeat at White Hart Lane, but he will surely be disheartened by what has happened since he took his place in the starting line-up. This hasn’t helped Kane as the a striker thrives off knowing where and when the creative players will deliver him the ball.
