"I know exactly what the guys are doing for the last two seasons and more and that is what remains my feelings".
"I am not going to Juventus in the next two seasons".
"It is hard to understand why we changed so much from the first half to the second".
England captain Kane's first-half milestone was eclipsed as third-placed Spurs squandered a lead in a game they were dominating, prompting criticism of his players by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
"In the second, the game changed". Today, it was really hard and it will be a hard run-in but we're focused. "I think they saw the Watford defender play the ball onto Sterling but not that he also challenged for it as well".
'It's going alright for me and the team, ' the match-winning City forward said.
