Tottenham star Harry Kane has admitted he’s delighted to have propelled his side to the top of the Premier League table. The England international scored the only goal of the game against West Brom on Sunday. And it means Spurs now sit at the summit after eight games played.
Tottenham scored late through Kane to see off West Brom, with the England international’s late header giving Jose Mourinho’s side all three points.
It was a huge victory for Spurs, who have now leapfrogged Southampton to go top of the Premier League table.
Tottenham have won five of their eight league games so far and will stay at the summit unless Liverpool beat Manchester City later on Sunday.
And, speaking after the game, Kane admitted he was delighted to have fired his side to the top of the table.
“They always feel better when you win the game,” said the striker.
“It was a big battle. Second half we played a lot better than the first. It was just about getting that breakthrough and thankfully a got a little header in to mark the 150.

“As the game opened up, we were creating more chances.
“They blocked a couple off the line, the ‘keeper made some good saves. We had to keep persisting.
“When you nick one with a few minutes left, it’s just about defending your lead and we did that.
“The last few games, you’ve seen us dig deep. These are the points you might look back on in March, April that were massive so we have to keep it going.
“We’d have taken being top of the league at this stage at the start of the season but we know there are a lot of big games to come. So far, so good.”
Speaking before the game, Kane had backed Tottenham to win the title – insisting they’ve got everything needed to lift the prize next year.
“When you look at the ability of our squad, you would definitely say that we’ve got enough to win a title,” said the England captain.
“But I’d also say that we’ve been close over the last four, five years and haven’t quite got over the line.
“So, it’s not as easy as just having a good squad – and winning a few games – to challenge for the title.
“But this is a season where I don’t think one team’s going to run away with it – like Liverpool last year.

“There’s going to be opportunities for other teams to put good runs together and get right up the table.
“We’ve got to make sure we don’t get carried away either.
“We know we’ve been playing well – and the last two games have been good for confidence, to grind out results and get ugly wins. That’s what we’re going to need.
“There have still been points dropped from winning positions. But so far so good. If we can win on the weekend, we’ll be around the top of the table going into that international break. We’d have taken that before the start of the season.”
Tottenham are next in action against Manchester City after the international break on November 21 (5.30pm).
