Kane, 28, was absent from the Spurs squad for the game, but Tottenham did a “great job”, according to Son Heung-Min, who scored the game’s only goal in the second half to secure a surprise victory.
The victory gave new Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo a perfect start, as club fans reveled in the victory chanting: “Are you looking at Harry Kane?”
Sunday’s result also demonstrated why City might want to sign England international Kane.
“It was an amazing performance and everyone worked so hard to get those three points,” Son told Sky Sports.
“Manchester City are currently the best team in the world so we fought for all three points and that means a lot to us at the start of the season.”
Asked by Sky Sports after the game, the Spurs manager was asked about Kane’s status, responding: “Harry Kane is one of the best players in the world, honestly. We are very lucky to have him. prepare and help the team. “
Tottenham acquired the moniker “Spursy” – a habit of flakiness and surrender – but there was nothing “Spursy” about this performance.
The courage of the London squad was characterized by 22-year-old defender Japhet Tanganga, who was named man of the match after he dismissed the threat from City striker Raheem Sterling.
