Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane believes their 3-0 win at Old Trafford on Monday night a title warning to the rest of the Premier League.
The visitors were on top from the beginning and handed Jose Mourinho a drubbing. The league’s premier striker Kane started it all when he scored the opener in the 50th minute. After a couple of incredible seasons, Harry Kane believes Spurs have the drive to reach next level.
The club were making some huge strides over the past few years. Last year, they even toppled winners Real Madrid and German giants Borussia Dortmund to finish top of their group in Champions League. The win at Old Trafford is going to boost the confidence of the team to a whole new level.
“That’s massive, to come here and win the way we did is a big statement,” Harry Kane told Sky Sports. “We wanted to start the season well and three wins out of three is a great start.”
After Harry Kane’s initial goal, the compact Manchester United defense pushed for an equalizer, which only played into hands of Tottenham Hotspur. A second goal in 2 minutes after the first goal put an end to United’s hopes in the game. Lucas Moura scored two goals and played an important role in the game.
“That’s the only way we’ll win the league. We haven’t started well in previous years, we’ve had to play catch-up, but the top six are so strong now you have to stay with them.
“This will give us huge belief, it’s a great statement tonight. We’re trying to create our own history at Spurs. We’ve not been top of the league over the years like United, like Chelsea.”
The win meant Tottenham Hotspur continue their perfect start winning nine points out of nine.
Jose Mourinho- A shadow of his former self
Although, Mauricio Pochettino and the club decided against bringing new players, the squad looks primed for success. On the other hand, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had gone all out on the board for giving him funds to sign new players.
But the manager is currently looking a shadow of his former self. Gone are his glory days of Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. The Portuguese tactician looked like an yesterday’s manager in the game against Spurs. After suffering the biggest home defeat in his career, the future looks uncertain for Mourinho in Manchester.
