Welcome again to Completely Tottenham, a weekly column devoted to all issues Spurs.
Glad Monday to everybody, particularly Harry Kane.
Nicely of us, I don’t find out about you, however I had an important weekend.
Why is it that simply because the season involves a detailed, Spurs begin enjoying beautiful soccer once more?
Proper, let’s get caught in…
THUMPING THE FOXES
Harry Kane was again doing Harry Kane issues once more on Sunday as Spurs cruised to a 3-Zero thumping of Leicester on the new stadium.
The boys have now gained 4 consecutive Premier League video games on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the primary time – our longest profitable run at house since December 2018.
It wasn’t precisely a dominant efficiency all through, with the guests having an enormous 71% share of the possession. However, Jose Mourinho’s strategy labored. Overload them when defending, cease Jamie Vardy, and catch them on the counter. Easy.
Why it’s taken us this many video games to clock that this works is past me. However, who’re we to complain? Three wins in per week and all of the sudden issues look way more constructive. Up the Spurs.
We have now to speak about our man of the second.
Harry has now scored 16 objectives in 14 video games in opposition to Leicester in all competitions, greater than he’s scored in opposition to another opponent in his profession. The person is a menace.
Higher but, the England captain has now scored 13 objectives in 18 appearances below Jose Mourinho. The place’s Paul Merson now, eh?
I didn’t assume it was doable to adore a footballer as a lot as I do with Kane.
The man smashed his hamstring to items in January, but right here he’s with 17 Premier League objectives this season – the identical as Sadio Mane, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling. Lovely.
It’s not simply H that deserves plaudits for his type for the reason that restart.
They’ve each had their fair proportion of critics, however Lucas Moura and Hugo Lloris within the final three video games specifically have been magnificent.
Our captain, Lloris, has actually highlighted his credentials for that armband for the reason that league resumed – his saves in opposition to Perez and Grey yesterday had been a few of his best in a Spurs shirt.
Little Lucas likewise has been a pleasure. Regardless of having not scored a league aim since December, his last third play in opposition to Arsenal, Newcastle and now Leicester has been a sight for sore eyes, with two assists to his identify in opposition to the Foxes.
Stick with it fellas.
I used to be delighted this week to see younger Oliver Skipp has signed a brand new take care of the membership.
The 19-year-old has caught the attention of Jose since he joined the membership, with the gaffer even saying in his press convention on Friday that he sees the midfielder as a future captain of the membership.
Skippy has made 10 appearances for the membership in all competitions this season, together with his greatest displaying coming in opposition to Norwich in our last recreation earlier than the break.
He has a protracted approach to go, however I’m excited to see what the longer term holds for a correct Spurs lad.
