3. Harry Kane back to his most menacing self
Let’s rid ourselves of any negative aura first. Kane will be the first to admit he should have scored a hat trick before the interval. Showcasing pace, composure and a sweet left foot, his goal was out of the top drawer. He did, however, miss two sitters, one off a header from close range, the other a wildly ballooned drive when he was through on goal with only Kasper Schmeichel to beat.
Let’s clear those misses from our collective memory bank. Kane was outstanding otherwise and, had it not been for Bergwijn’s superhero cameo, would have been Spurs best player. He played with a real chip on his shoulder and caused Leicester’s defence fits throughout. His running was dynamic, endless and intelligent, his touch was deft and his passing precise and perfectly weighted. Kane has exorcised his early season demons and is on the cusp of a full, epic revival. Once he recaptures, which he’s on the verge of doing, his clinical nature in front of goal, his renaissance will be complete. That’s a scary prospect for other teams in the division and a wondrous one for Spurs supporters.
