'It’s a more open league - we have a chance'
FT: Spurs 2-0 Man City

Tottenham skipper Harry Kane speaking to Sky Sports: "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."

'We know there is a long way to go'
Spurs 2-0 Man City

Tottenham captain Harry Kane to BBC Match of the Day: "It feels pretty good [to be top of the table]. It will feel even better if we are still there at the end of May.

"We know there’s a long way to go but if you go top it shows you are doing the right thing.

"We just have to take confidence from these games into the games coming up.

"We knew they would have more possession than us, we didn’t quite move the ball as much as we wanted. Sometimes when you get a goal early the tendency is to drop off. But we knew would get chances on the counter and we got one to finish the game off nicely."

On his partnership with Son Heung-min: "Sonny has been clinical this season. The first goal was really good.

"Different spells in the game we created good chances, we have a great understanding and when he finishes the chances like he is it is great for Tottenham Hotspur."

'You make a mistake and they punish you'
Spurs 2-0 Man City

Man City boss Pep Guardiola speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "It could be better, we played similar to how have all season. We did not defend good for the first goal. They then defended so deep, they defended with six and it was not easy.

"We had our chances, but we couldn’t score and they made two or three chances on the counter attack and we lost the game.

“We knew before the game that you cannot give them the first goal. We had more chances and them but we lost. Mourinho’s teams are like this, you make a mistake and they punish you on the counter attack.

"It is not easy Harry Kane and Ndombele are on halfway, the space is so difficult, our possession play was good, but football is the boxes and that is where we were not good."

That 06/07 season near broke me, what I'm witnessing so far this season isn't far off doing the same.

How does Rodri score that unbelievable header against Germany but puts a much easier one straight into Lloris arms?
