Striker Harry Kane scored a brace as Tottenham secured a 3-0 win against the Foxes.

England striker Harry Kane expressed his delight after Tottenham’s 3-0 Premier League win against Leicester City on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho’s side had just 29.5% possession against the Foxes, their lowest share in a league match since September 2012 versus Man Utd (26%) but they were very clinical as an own goal from James Justin and a brace from Kane sealed three points.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the win, Kane said: “It was hard for him [Jose Mourinho] to come in and put his stamp on things but we have been able to do that in the last three wins.

“It's just one of those teams I seem to score a few against. We caught them on the break today and once we got ahead we just steadied the ship. The clean sheet was great.”

On his second goal, the 26-year-old added: “The ball got away from me to begin with so I looked to try and cut in and get the shot away. Sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn't. Luckily today it did.”

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho told Sky Sports: "I think we were strategically good. We knew what worked for us. Brendan Rodgers did an amazing job since he arrived but in this moment he is in a little bit of trouble with injuries. I know what it is because I had similar problems at the other end.

"He is trying to compensate with the people he lost so we knew that in transition we could win the game. We tried to be very fast after recovering the ball. We did that very well in the first half and in the second half it was about being compact and getting the result.

"You always need your goalkeeper to make a couple of important saves which he did but we were phenomenal. They had a lot of corners and we defended well. I felt very comfortable in the game."
