Fulham ball-boy becomes Tottenham hero after FA Cup win

Tottenham defender delivers message on Instagram after signing new contract

"We're very proud to have not only a player, but a man, with how he is".

Kane picked up a minor knee problem in midweek and has passed a late fitness test to start at Craven Cottage.

Spurs need to overturn a 1-0 deficit against Gent in the return leg at Wembley on Thursday before they meet Stoke City in the Premier League on Sunday.

As Tottenham Hotspur arrive after a short jaunt across London to Craven Cottage, it could be understandable if their focus was elsewhere. "It was a great opportunity to show we are alive, to change the feeling after two defeats. and this was a big boost of confidence". While replays suggested the striker was marginally offside, the goal stood and with over 40 minutes remaining, the tie was effectively over.

Goooooooal! The Champions League is headed straight to Manchester , as Man City hosts AS Monaco in an epic clash on February 21. Two of the more attack-minded sides left in the competition promised so much - and boy did they deliver.

Jan Vertonghen believes Tottenham have matured since they lost the Capital One Cup final to Chelsea two years ago - and he is eyeing another shot at a trophy after the Lilywhites booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

"After Gent we had a few meetings [with the players] and the reaction was fantastic", Pochettino said.

Kane completed his hat-trick on 73 minutes as Alli collected Eriksen's pass before releasing the England forward, who hared onto the through ball and swept confidently past Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

"I thought he (Pochettino) was going to take me off soon", Kane told BBC One.

TOTTENHAM: Vorm, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Wanyama, Winks (Dembele, 79 mins), Eriksen, Dele (Onomah, 86 mins), Son, Kane (Sissoko, 75 mins).

To Fulham's credit, they attempted to match Spurs' intensity, the effectiveness of which was helped by the Cottagers' smaller pitch, but a lapse in concentration led to their visitors taking the lead.

That second goal did arrive six minutes into the second half, however, with Eriksen and Kane again combining to great effect.

Pep Guardiola responds to speculation over shock Barcelona return
Enrique has been branded an underachiever since the 4-0 loss at PSG on Tuesday and he looks set to leave the club in the summer. Real Madrid is still at the top of the table with 52 points. "It is normal after the game the comments that happen".

Especially for Kane. Since scoring three times against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League last month, Kane had only scored once in five games before facing an inviting Fulham defense.
