Kane scores on Tottenham return against West Brom to end winless run

The Spurs captain had missed the previous two defeats against Brighton and Chelsea but made a surprise start against Sam Allarydce's side.

Kane also saw a shot go just past the post before West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone denied Serge Aurier with a brilliant save.

Spurs finally broke the deadlock after 54 minutes when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg found Kane inside the box to finish.

Kane becomes the joint-second highest scorer alongside Bobby Smith in the club's history with 208 goals behind Jimmy Greaves.

Son doubled Spurs' lead after he was on the end of a swift counter attack started from Lucas Moura.

"Kane is a special player, but today they showed everyone how together they are and how much they were suffering with the bad results," Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said postmatch.
