Harry Kane was the toast of Twitter on the night as he seemed to have put behind his August drought as well. The Spurs forward scored a brace to follow up from his display against Everton and was rightly showered with appreciation on the social media platform.

Brilliant goal from Harry Kane. Wants to be judged with the best in Europe. Goals like that won’t do him any harm whatsoever.

Interestingly, there was one user who presented an interesting thought.
This life is funny. If Soldado had delivered, Harry Kane may never have gotten a chance.
