Harry Kane is back on the score sheet and Tottenham Hotspur is back in the win column.

Those don’t feel like a coincidence, even if Kane’s marker was the insurance marker in Tottenham’s 2-0 defeat of West Ham United on Tuesday.

Kane was happy to get on the score sheet and feeling good about his day.

“When you’ve been out for over six months it’s about getting that feeling back on the pitch,” he told the BBC. “I should’ve scored one other but it’s nice to put that one away. I’m in good shape. I’ve been working very hard. I feel as good as I’ve ever done.”

Kane was also asked about scoring his 137th Premier League goal during his 200th appearance in England’s top flight.

“200 games it goes so quick,” Kane said. “The years fly by and you have to make the most of it. I’m still only 26 so hopefully I can get to that 200 mark sooner rather than later and go from there.”

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho says it’s good to see Kane rewarded for all the hard work taken to get fit for the summer after a long layoff that began with an injury.

“I am happy for him, he worked a lot and now there will be better headlines and a better feeling for him,” Mourinho said. “He has been phenomenal in lockdown, did amazing work at home, and he is in the condition to help the team.”
