Kane savours ‘greatest moment’
Harry Kane savoured his man-of-the-match performance after stepping off the bench to inspire Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.
Kane’s deflected last-gasp free-kick snatched all three points for the visitors after Nacer Chadli had equalised with just five minutes remaining in a bad-tempered contest.
Villa were clinging onto a 1-0 lead following their first goal in over five games, Andreas Weimann stabbing in Charles N’Zogbia’s cross in the 15th minute, but their task was made harder when Christian Benteke was dismissed for pushing Ryan Mason in the face midway through the second half.
But after Erik Lamela’s corner was converted by Chadli, Kane’s 20-yard free-kick was diverted into the net by Nathan Baker in the Villa wall with Brad Guzan wrong-footed.
