But Kane born-again when a devastating break at the tip of the first half and 10-man Spurs managed to carry on within the face of intense pressure after the break.
Because the hosts opened the grading within the twenty-fourth minute once Angus Gunn let Ndombele’s left-footed strike from the sting of the box up despite it being virtually straight at him.
