Harry Kane scored a brace to help Tottenham produce one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the FA Cup. He opened the scoring with a curling effort in the 13th minute before Spurs doubled their lead thanks to an own goal by Solly March. Yves Bissouma halved the lead before Kane scored his second of the game to seal the win.
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte: “Harry, in the past, in the games that he didn’t score, I liked his performance. Harry is a player who’s scored a lot in the past as a number nine. But what we can appreciate – me and the whole team – is his attitude and commitment to the whole team. I think this is the most important thing for us. Then, for sure, to score two goals is important because he’s a number nine, he’s used to scoring goals. We are working on the physical condition with the team. We’re trying to improve the intensity, also during the training sessions. I think all these situations can improve the performance of all the players.”
Brighton boss Graham Potter: “I don’t think we were at our best tonight, that wasn’t from a lack of effort. Credit to the opposition, Tottenham played well and was aggressive. We also contributed ourselves, this can happen. Our attitude was great, but, if we were honest, we weren’t good enough to win. We need to be at our maximum to win here and we weren’t. Tottenham deserved to win.”
