Any anxiety for Kane seems to have evaporated with his first league goal this season. The manager was delighted with the reaction of his team but urged them to keep their feet on the ground ahead of the coming games.
Despite claiming that two of Tottenham’s goals in their 4-1 success should have been ruled out for offside, the Chilean refused to blame referee Mark Clattenburg and his officials for the result.
Depay made the breakthrough in first-half stoppage time, tapping home after Daley Blind’s fine pass was volleyed across goal by Mata, with Rooney and Mata finishing the job in the second half.
“There has been a lot of talk that I have not scored yet but I am a confident young man and I have faith in my ability”, he told BT Sport.
Kane also had words of praise or the fans.
“It was great to see Harry score and the performances I have seen have certainly merited that reward”, said Glenn.
Meanwhile, Kane ended a 12-hour goal drought after taking advantage of a rebound following Christian Eriksen’s free-kick hit the crossbar.
“This is a very young team compared with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or Juventus”.
Pressure is something that is building at City after a third loss in four matches in all competitions, especially with injury problems mounting.
Manchester City could be without Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Manchester City: Caballero 5; Sagna 6, Demichelis 5, Otamendi 5, Kolarov 5; Fernandinho 6 (Nasri 69) 5, Fernando 6; De Bruyne 7, Toure 7 (Navas 55) 5, Sterling 6; Aguero 5 (Roberts 85).
The defensive midfielder’s bullet from the edge of the box punished City, who failed to clear following Son Heung-min’s smothered shot – a goal the visitors were furious at as Walker was clearly offside before playing in the cross that started it. Toby Alderweireld’s first goal for Spurs came just five minutes after the interval as Tottenham stamped their authority on the remaining 40 minutes of the contest.
“After that they played very well, we looked very bad”.
