TOTTENHAM boss Jose Mourinho believes frontman Harry Kane “changed the game” during his side’s 5-2 comeback win at Saints.

The England skipper registered no fewer than four assists for fellow attacker Heung-Min Son at St Mary’s, as the north London outfit ran riot during an impressive second-half display.

Kane then got on the scoresheet himself nine minutes from time when he slotted home after Erik Lamela hit the post.

Spurs, who were disrupted by a fire alarm at their hotel at 4.45am, turned the tables on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side to record their first league victory of the season.

Mourinho said: “In the second half Harry Kane, in my opinion, changed the game.

“His movement was tremendous, his link play was absolutely incredible and he allowed Sonny to play in a different position on the pitch.

“Gio (Lo Celso) and Lamela, I just love when players come from the bench and add something to the team. The second half was a really strong performance for us.”

Spurs will be giving opposition defences nightmares at the prospect of adding former Saint Gareth Bale to their frontline, while Sergio Reguilon will also add quality down the left.

“A coach always likes to have the best players in his squad. Gareth, when fit and in condition, is one of the top players in Europe, and Sergio was amazing last season in Sevilla,” Mourinho added.

“So if you ask me if I’m happy to have these players I have to say yes I am, but there are other things that make a team and make a squad.”

Mourinho also said Dele Alli still has a future at Tottenham, despite being left out of the 5-2 victory.

“I want a balanced squad, that’s what I want,” he said when asked whether he wanted Alli to stay. “No, he doesn’t need to be sacrificed, but the squad is a puzzle.

“The only thing I can say is that I left eight players behind. They stayed and trained this morning because they are a big group and Dele is amongst these players.”
