“He knew that we needed a second man to make these kinds of runs because Sonny was low on energy, but he was magnificent and what we needed at that time.”

On Harry Kane’s performance, the manager also said: “Harry is just one great example of where the players are at this moment. Everyone is fighting with great solidarity and I could not be prouder of them.

“They need to have the technical qualities, the technical culture, but they also need to have the desire to be a team player.

“And with Harry it is amazing because the tendency is to judge strikers on how many they score. But with Harry he will change that dynamic because people will assess what a striker does for the whole team.”
