    HARRY'S THOUGHTS

    Here are the thoughts from the man of the match Harry Kane:

    “Fantastic performance, we knew it was obviously going to be a tough game, Man City are a great team who use the ball really well.

    “But yeah we had a game plan to defend as a unit, in that kind of a mid block, obviously sometimes it went into a bit of a low block.

    “I thought everyone worked their socks off today and yeah we took our chances.

    “Obviously Sonny with a great finish early on and then we knew that in the second half that the chances would be available, thankfully we took one towards the end.”
