Harry Kane has claimed Tottenham were the better team during their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, despite falling to a 4-2 defeat at Wembley.
Tottenham came from behind twice as goals from Kane and Dele Alli cancelled out a Willian brace, but Eden Hazard then came off the bench to put Chelsea back in front before Nemanja Matic secured their passage into the final in emphatic style.
Tottenham enjoyed the majority of possession throughout the match, but Kane admitted that they could not find a way past Chelsea as their wait for an FA Cup trophy extended to 26 years.
“I think we were the better team, played better football but couldn’t find a way to win. Sometimes that is football,” he told BBC Sport.
“When we got back to 2-2 we thought we were going to win it but we got punished by another set piece. It is difficult to take right now.”
