Kane To The Rescue Against Mura for Tottenham

Nuno was expected to rotate his squad with another quick turnaround before Sunday’s Premier League game against Aston Villa. It was also a missed opportunity for some of Spurs’ fringe players and Mura were on top after the break. The hosts looked shaky after conceding that brilliant Kous volley. This left Nuno with no choice but to bring on Kane, Son and Moura to swing the momentum back into Spurs’ favour. In hopes for Tottenham to win the game against Mura.

Less than 10 minutes after the trio’s introduction, England striker Kane latched on to a perfect cross. This was from Lucas Moura before finding the far corner. Kane’s second came eight minutes later. Firing home with his first touch from close range after a brilliant run by Son down the left. The 28-year-old is the first player to score a hat-trick in the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League.
