BEN FOSTER HAILS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has hailed Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur as the best team he opines that they have played this term. Tottenham Hotspur hit four past Foster when they clashed and it seems he is still stunned.
After narrow losses to Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte’s men, Tony Pulis set up the team to play defensive but Mauricio Pochettino’s men hammered them 4-0. Foster said he remains impressed with their attacking prowess.
“In all fairness, that’s probably the best team I have played against. Far play to them, it’s just one we will have to move to move on from. We went three at the back to try and get back into the game but sadly we couldn’t get going,” Foster said.
The victory reinforced Spurs as title contenders even though it would be a surprise for any team to steal the title from Chelsea FC this term. Striker Harry Kane, who just became a dad, got a hat trick, helping the team to a comfortable win. Chelsea defeated Leicester City 3-0 to continue their stroll to the Premier League title.
Kane scored his first in the 12th minute and could have quickly added another in the first half but Foster denied him. Foster could not stop the second of the game as Gareth McAuley deflected a Christian Eriksen shot into the net. Kane then added his two goals.
“It’s amazing, the week’s been a bit of a whirlwind for me,” Kane said after his hat trick whilst still happy to be a father.
“We have to lick our wounds and forget about it as quickly as possible. Everyone has their ups and downs. We need to get over this one and move on to next weekend’s game against Sunderland,” Foster added.
