Started with being eliminated from Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb, the Spurs’ Sunday's 2-0 win over Aston Villa reprieved a week Harry Kane called "embarrassing" as the victory lifted Tottenham to sixth place in the Premier League, just three points behind fourth-place Chelsea.
"Massively [needed]," Kane told Sky Sports. "The last couple of games have not been good enough. We knew we had to bounce back. We didn't want to go away with three losses before the international break.
"The boys put in a great shift and we deserved it.
"The last couple of games we dropped below our standards. It was nice to get it back today - everyone fighting, putting their bodies on the line. That's what we need to do for the rest of the season to give the top four a push.
"[The last week] was embarrassing for us.
"Even at the back we didn't give away too many chances. Villa have been great this year so we knew this would be tough."
After returning from the international break, Jose Mourinho’s side will meet Manchester United and Everton in the league before facing Manchester City in the Carabao Cup’s final on April 25.
