Premier League: Harry Kane sparks Tottenham fightback in draw at Brentford | Football News


LONDON: Harry Kane shook off any World Cup hangover to spark a Tottenham Hotspur renaissance in an entertaining 2-2 draw at Brentford as the premier league came back to life on Monday.
A first goal of Vitaly Janelt and Ivan Toney’s close-range goal shortly after the break put Brentford 2-0 up as Tottenham struggled to deal with their hosts.
But Antonio Conte’s side have become accustomed to playing their best football when they are behind and it has proven once again.
Kane, whose missed penalty just over a fortnight ago condemned England to a quarter-final loss to France, headed home in the 65th minute to throw his side a lifeline.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, one of five Tottenham starters to feature in the World Cup, then equalized with a quiet finish and Kane nearly won it with a header against the crossbar.
Tottenham are in fourth place with 30 points while Brentford are ninth ahead of the rest of the matchday fixtures.
