Tottenham Hotspur striker and captain, Harry Kane, has insisted that his club are not out of the top four race that this stage in the season.
Spurs dropped into the bottom half of the table after their defeat to Liverpool yesterday with Man United moving the other way into seventh after their win.
Tottenham are now the lowest-placed ‘big six’ side in the league, with Arsenal hanging onto fifth place despite drawing to Crystal Palace yesterday.
The top four spots are currently held by Liverpool, Man City, Leicester City, and Chelsea, with Spurs already being eight points below the Blues in fourth.
The Lilywhites are going to need a good run of form if they are going to climb their way back up the league and finish in those Champions League spots come the end of the season.
Kane believes that there is a lot of football to be played, but Spurs will need to find a way to string some difficult wins together.
On whether Spurs were in danger of missing out, he said (Standard): “Not at this stage. There’s a lot of football to be played. A winning run has got to be the aim, but we’ve got to turn it around quick. When you’re in form like this, where you can’t get a run of wins together, it’s difficult. It’s down to us to stick together, to do more and make sure we come out of it.”
