Spurs have won 3-1 at Newcastle United home soil on Wednesday in hopes to reach their European qualification, currently at seventh place just one point behind Wolverhampton.
Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane received praise from manager Jose Mourinho, branding him “incredible” after scoring the last two goals needed to get the victory, thus making Kane’s new milestone reaching 200 career club goals.
“Harry Kane knows how important he is, he is incredible,” said Mourinho.
“After such a difficult recovery he is playing every minute of every game, this is the fourth game with two days in between, we are the only team to have this, and Harry gave everything.”
All but 16 of Kane’s now 201 club goals have come for Tottenham after loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall and Leicester early in his career.
“201 in 350 league games — that’s not bad!” Kane said. “It’s nice to get to that milestone but the points are the most important thing.”
“Hopefully I’ll get a couple of more before the season ends.”
“A tough game and three massive points. We didn’t play as well as we could have but we got the result in the end.”
Newcastle was unfortunate being down 1-0 from the first half, as Tottenham’s Son Heung-min gave the early lead at the 27-minute-mark, making his 11th league goal for the season.
