Tottenham striker Kane: Mourinho had game plan for Man City

Tottenham striker Harry Kane admits manager Jose Mourinho's "game plan" worked to a tee in victory over Manchester City.

Goals from Heung-Min Son and Giovani Lo Celso did the damage for the hosts for the 2-0 win.

Spurs are now top of table and Kane said: "Fantastic performance, we knew it was going to be a tough game.

"We had a game plan to play as a unit. Everyone worked their socks off today. We took our chance, Sonny with a great goal. And then we knew it would open up in the second half

"I knew if I dropped deep then the centre-backs would come with me and Sonny could run in behind. We dropped deep, probably more than we needed to, but we changed that at half-time.

"It's a season where you've got to do all it takes to win games. It's going to be an up and down year. There's no better feeling when you win. We'll enjoy it, but we know we've got a long way to go.

"We're doing well, there's still parts we can improve on. We've got a lot of tough games to go. It's a more open league. Like any season, whoever can put a good spell together will have a good chance of winning."
