Tottenham talisman Harry Kane has insisted that Spurs will threaten at the very top of the table for a third successive season, despite early disappointment at temporary home Wembley Stadium.
Spurs bounced back from two underwhelming results at ‘home’ to Chelsea and Burnley in impressive style on Saturday, walking over Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park.
Harry Kane, who scored a brace, netted his first Spurs goal of the season when an attempted cross flew in over the head of Jordan Pickford in goal, as Tottenham recorded just their 2nd win away in the Blue side of Mersey-side in their previous 11 league attempts.
After the game, Kane asserted his belief that the surprisingly comfortable victory re-establishes the club’s capability to mount yet another title challenge this season, despite all their doubters.
“People might not talk about us, but that suits us,” He told reporters, according to SkySports. “We will just get on with our job and we will keep producing performances like this.”
Throughout most of Summer, Spurs were the only Premier League side not to sign a single new player, and without having improved on last season, it was suggested that Tottenham would struggle to maintain their top 4 status.
However, Tottenham delivered on their promise of late transfer activity, eventually bringing in no less than five new players, something Kane feels is crucial to their title aspirations.
“What you have had is teams spending money,” He added. “Buying big players and big names.”
“We have left it late in the transfer market, but we have got the players that we wanted and now we have got a good squad, a bulky squad.”
“We play good football and we have been in the title race for the last couple of years. Come the business end in the second half of the season, we are normally thereabouts fighting for the title.”
As of yet, Tottenham’s youthful team has not won any silverware, despite having coming close twice only for those hopes to be ended by Chelsea on both occasions.
The two-time golden-boot winner, who scored his 100th goal for Spurs on Saturday, also took the time to re-assert the team’s desire to lift trophies and finally put an end to the 9 year drought.
“Of course that is the aim,” He declared. “That is the most important thing.”
“All the individual records are good but you want to try and win club trophies, win the Premier League and the FA Cup.”
“I’m really proud of reaching a hundred, hopefully I can get another hundred even quicker.”
