Bradley: We can keep Kane quiet

Two goals from Harry Kane, a stunning volley from Heung-Min Son and two late efforts for Christian Eriksen ensured Spurs reacted in the best possible way to defeats by Monaco and leaders Chelsea to remain within seven points of their London rivals.

The 23-year-old academy graduate won the Premier League Golden Boot last season with 25 goals, was named in the PFA Team of the Year and has found the net five times already this term.

A Harry Kane double helped Tottenham Hotspur return to winning ways with a thumping 5-0 victory over a pitiful Swansea City at White Hart Lane.

He struck his sixth goal of the English Premier League season in spectacular fashion during first-half extra time to give his team a 2-0 lead.

Bob Bradley credits Spurs as the toughest side he has faced in the Prem, and hopes Swansea will learn from their defeat.

"The conversation I had with him was about seeing if we can get back to his best level".

Three minutes after the kick-off of the second half, Son received a through pass from Dele Alli on a breakaway and penetrated the Swansea box without seeing much challenge.

"I think after he moved to Swansea and we saw his development at Swansea, he was a ideal player for us". The decision when we were in Seattle was for him to play the first friendly game.

However, Bradley admitted his side - who had one shot in the entire match, which was blocked, and just 40 percent of possession - were second-best.

The home game against Sunderland on Saturday appears particularly crucial, given the Black Cats also sit in the relegation zone and only two points ahead of the Swans.

"All the players are in the club's project, and for this season it is important to continue this work with good spirit and this is true with all the players".

In a further sign that maybe all is not well between manager and board at White Hart Lane, the Argentine manager has seemingly had another sly dig at owner Daniel Levy.

"It's always important and I'm happy for them", he said abruptly.

"It's not about skills or technical ability, it was about being more fresh and clever to compete, and that is the gap that we need to reduce maybe with the teams that have the ability to compete every three days".
