Tottenham hero laments dropped points against Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has expressed regret that Spurs were only managed to take a point from their meeting with Liverpool on Sunday.

Spurs fell behind early in the second half when Philippe Coutinho—who had earlier been shown a yellow card for a blatant dive—beat Hugo Lloris following a spell of pressure from the home side.

However, Tottenham are made of stern stuff this season, and rarely know when they’re beaten.

They responded through Kane, who rescued a point following some excellent work by Christian Eriksen, one of the game’s outstanding individuals on the day.

Despite enjoying their fair share of chances during the latter stages of the bout, Spurs were unable to find the winner, and despite moving provisionally one point closer to Leicester City, they will fall a whopping seven points behind the Foxes should Claudio Ranieri’s side beat Southampton on Sunday.

Speaking to the media after the match—as per the Mirror—goalscorer Kane has expressed regret at a missed opportunity.

“I think we are a tad ­disappointed,” the England international began. “We wanted to come here and win and get the three points to chase the leaders.

“We got the goal back at 1-0 down and it is a shame we didn’t get the second,” he continued. “It was an open game and about who could deal with the pressure better. We both created chances and it could have gone either way.

“Christian Eriksen made a wonderful run and I just had to turn and get the shot off. I was buzzing to see it in the back of the net.”
