We bossed them from start to finish.
Sure, Dier gifted them a goal (shock), but we controlled it all game and probably should have won by 3 or 4 goals as opposed to just the 2.
If Mourinho does the right thing and rests Kane in the Europa League, he gets pretty much a week between each Premier League game.
If he doesn't rest him, he's done exactly what he criticised Southgate for. Overplaying.
Since our last league game against West Brom to our game against Man City tomorrow. Harry Kane played 166 minutes of football for England.
So between the 8th November to 21st November - he played 166 minutes. That's a pretty decent rest over the course of 2 weeks.
Wthin the next week for Spurs, he's guaranteed to play at least 180 against Man City and Chelsea. And if Mourinho decides to play him for any reason in the Europa League, it's likely that goes over 200 minutes. In 7 days.
That's simple mathematics.
I guess you'd preferred he didn't play at all over the 2 weeks and lost his match sharpness? Leading into what is a crucial period in our season with the fixtures we have coming up? The same Harry Kane who pretty much always struggles to get into the groove of things after time off..
Why are we having this discussion?
You think Harry Kane playing for his country is bad. I don't. Simple as that.
I don't know why you are going into mathematics and all that rubbish.
As I've said again and again Games for Tottenham need winning, lose and it affects our season. Harry shouldn't play at all in the Europa at this stage but we've not been good enough and therefore he plays. Had he not played against ludo then what so you think the result would have been??? but sadly he's needed.
Games for England in nations league is pointless, playing in a game where we can only finish third regardless of the result even more pointless. He can play for his country in euro warm up games and the actual tournament.
Not a single fan wanted him in that game. Only you. Even when the game was over he is still on til 75th minute or whatever it was. Pointless. Around all these key league games he'll play in Europa too. Hopefully not as much but you cannot say those are meaningless. So if being involved means we win then he has to be.
