Tottenham hotspur striker Harry Kane believes that they have squandered a wonderful opportunity to close the gap on Leicester City and keep the pressure on the leaders. Spurs responded well from going a goal down early in the first half with Kane scoring the equaliser but they failed to carve out another opportunity to take three points, which kept them four points adrift of Leicester, who play Southampton on 3 April.

Philippe Coutinho scored first for the hosts who were the dominant team in the first half and were kept out by the heroics of Hugo Lloris and a profligate performance by their strikers. However, Kane carved an opportunity to get Spurs back into the game with a brilliant swivelling shot which found the back of the net.

Mauricio Pochettino's men huffed and puffed, making a massive push to find the winner, but to no avail. It now seems like Spurs are currently at the mercy of Leicester, who face the Saints on Sunday and would look to take a seven-point lead over their nearest challengers.

"I think we are a tad ­disappointed. We wanted to come here and win and get the three points to chase the leaders. We got the goal back at 1-0 down and it is a shame we didn't get the second," Kane said after the game, as quoted by the Mirror.

"It was an open game and about who could deal with the pressure better. We both created chances and it could have gone either way. Christian Eriksen made a wonderful run and I just had to turn and get the shot off. I was buzzing to see it in the back of the net.

"We are fighting for the Premier League. We will watch the Leicester game and hope Southampton can get a result and do us a favour. We have done what we can do," he added.
