Tottenham matchwinner Kane: Burnley gave us tough battle

Tottenham matchwinner Harry Kane was delighted with victory over Burnley.

Kane's penalty proved the only goal of the game.

He said, "It was a tough battle, but it's what we expected. We knew they'd make it difficult. Getting a goal just before half-time was vital for us. The last five or ten minutes is always a bit nervy when you're only 1-0 up.

"The pressure was on. They made it difficult, pressed a little higher at the beginning of the second half. Nick Pope made some good saves from Sonny in the second half.

"Full credit to the boys, the manager and the staff. It's never easy coming in mid-season and trying to turn things around. We've given ourselves a chance [of a top-four finish]. We just need to keep working hard.

"We missed the fans during the pandemic. It's so good to see them back and enjoying their football. The noise is great. We're working hard for the fans and hopefully we can have one last push next week."

On next Sunday's game at Norwich, he added: "We can't take it for granted. Norwich will be playing their last home game in the Premier League next season, but we have a full week of preparation. We feel like if we play to our abilities we should win the game."

On Arsenal's trip to Newcastle, Kane concluded: "I'll give Kieran Trippier a text. It'll be a tough game for Arsenal, but we've taken care of what we needed to do."
