Harry Kane hails Tottenham for taking ‘really big’ step in Stamford Bridge draw with Chelsea

Spurs were below par for much of the game and fell behind twice against Thomas Tuchel’s side, first thanks to Kalidou Koulibaly’s volley in the first half and then when Reece James fired 13 minutes from time.

But Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalized the first time and Kane then earned his side a point in stoppage time when he turned a corner in the far corner to spark wild celebratory scenes.

While Tottenham have yet to win just once at Stamford Bridge in their Premier League days, Kane insisted it was a crucial step for the team to avoid defeat on a pitch. who has struggled so much in the past.

“It was a very important game for us to show where we are as a team,” Kane told Sky Sports.

“It’s a marathon, not a sprint and we still have a long way to go with a World Cup in between. But it was important, especially after losing five or six times to them in the cup or in the league, away from home at Stamford Bridge hasn’t been our best place over the years so to come away with a point especially at the end was a good feeling. ”

Chelsea will feel they should have walked away with all three points from a bad-tempered derby, which gave both managers red cards after the game.

Particularly in the first half, Spurs watched the pace on a boiling afternoon in west London, but Kane praised the visitors’ resilience to stay in the game and then make sure they avoided defeat.

“It was a tough game, against a very good team,” Kane said.

“We knew it would be a very tough battle. In the first half we weren’t good enough with or without the ball, but in the second half I think we came out and pressed well, we scored the goal. It was disappointing the way we conceded the second.

“But we kept fighting and pushing and got one in the end there. I’m happy with the way we fought back, especially in the second half, and I feel really good to have that one at the end.
