Harry Kane delivered a slightly confusing dig at Liverpool following Tottenham’s 3-0 victory over Manchester United last night.
The English striker gave Spurs the lead, while two goals from Lucas Moura helped make it three wins from three for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who are now level on top of the table with us.
But afterwards, when questioned about our start to the campaign, he said we should ‘put our money where our mouth is’…
“People will be talking about Liverpool and those kind of teams and but they will have to put their money where their mouth is,” he said, cited in the Mirror.
“That’s massive to come here and win the way we did, it’s a big statement. We wanted to start the season well and got three wins out of three. It’s been a fantastic start.”
In January, Liverpool made Virgil van Dijk the world’s most expensive defender, in the summer we made Alisson temporarily the planet’s dearest keeper, and added Naby Keita and Fabinho to the mix too – so we can only assume Kane’s speaking metaphorically!
In fairness to Spurs, there’s been little said about their chances of winning the title because they didn’t buy a single player in the summer – but they’re a genuinely excellent side with class all over the pitch.
We play them on September 15th following the international break, which is a fixture we traditionally struggle with – especially considering it kicks off at 12:30 and is at Wembley.
