first_img Harry Kane in action for Tottenham 1 Sam Allardyce believes Harry Kane went down too easily during Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.The Spurs striker won a penalty in the final minutes of the encounter in north London, after a challenge from Alex Song, and scored an equaliser to deny the Hammers all three points.Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who had trailed 2-0 with 10 minutes remaining following goals by Cheikhou Kouyate and Diafra Sakho, came from behind to gain a vital point in their search for Champions League football next year.“You can argue whether it’s enough contact from Alex’s arm or whether it’s not, but when you’re desperate like Tottenham are and you get touched, a player’s going to fall over and ask the referee to make a decision,” the Hammers boss told BT Sport. “Whether it’s the right decision or not, it’s the way football is today.“If we’re to learn anything by it, we have to do the same as what Tottenham do more often, because we stay on our feet and don’t get fouls and they get touched and go down and they do get fouls. In the end it’s make a difference.“But they’re so lucky today – one with the first goal and two with the fact Adrian saved the penalty and it’s fortunately – and unfortunately for us – come straight back to Harry Kane. It’s a bitter disappointment. (We had) an opportunity to have won by more.”last_img
