Harry Kane’s late brace helped Tottenham record a 3-2 win over West Ham earning him high praise from Pochettino, who believes he is one of the best strikers in the world.
The England international needed just 160 seconds to score both goals. Antonio put West Ham in front, before Harry Winks equalised for the Spurs. Lanzini then restored West Ham’s lead from the spot.
However, in the dying minutes of the game, Kane equalised from close range, pouncing on a rebound, before scoring from the spot.
“We showed great character and personality and we always tried to find the goal and fight until the last minute,” Pochettino told BT Sport.
“We created more than West Ham and if one team deserved to win more it was us. It was not our best performance or best game but it was difficult and so it is a fantastic three points.
“It was important to us to recover that feeling that you only get with winning games.
“Harry Kane is always very important, he is our main striker and one of the best strikers in the world. You miss that type of player when he does not play for 10 or 11 games.”
