Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is pleased after his side returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa in a Premier League game on Sunday.

Spurs, who headed into the game at Villa Park on the back of a three-match winless streak in all competitions, broke the deadlock on the brink of half-time through Kane.

The striker then doubled his side’s advantage just three minutes after the break as Tottenham consolidated second place in the Premier League with 58 points from 30 games, just two adrift of leaders Leicester City, who have played a game fewer.

And Kane, who admitted that his side are “very happy” to bag the three points, which keeps the club very much in the title race, admitted that everyone expected Tottenham to come out victorious against a relegation-threatened Villa.

“We’ve had a few disappointing results, but we have put it right’, he said on Spurs TV.


“Obviously everyone expected us to win this game and we went out there and did the job.

“We looked calm, we looked collected, we knew what we had to do. And we’re all very happy.”

Tottenham will next face Borussia Dortmund in a Europa League Round of 16 second leg clash on Thursday, with the north London club having lost the first leg 3-0 in Germany last week.
