Harry Kane has urged Tottenham to maintain their winning run after scoring twice in the 4-1 victory at Watford.
The England striker’s first-half double sent Spurs on their way to a fourth straight Premier League win, with Dele Alli adding his own brace either side of half-time.
Kane has now scored 59 goals in 100 Premier League games – the same number as Thierry Henry had at this stage at Arsenal.
And the 23-year-old is keen to add to his own tally – and make it five wins in a row – when leaders Chelsea visit White Hart Lane on Wednesday. This is a huge game and the odds on Smartbets are pretty even of which team will come away with the win.
Kane, speaking on Sky Sports 1, said: “We want to keep our form up. Going into the new year we wanted to start well and a 4-1 victory here was fantastic.”
Tottenham – who moved up to third, at least temporarily – are 10 points behind runaway leaders Chelsea but Kane sees no reason why they cannot be caught.
Asked how big the game against the Blues will be, Kane said: “It’s massive. Everyone knows that, it’s going to be a fantastic atmosphere coming to our place.
“We’re looking forward to it, we’re excited. We have to recover now and get ready for the game and put in a good performance.
“People are going to think it’s a key game, whether we win or lose. We just have to focus on our job and go out there and beat Chelsea and stop their form.”
Alli now has 18 goals from 51 Premier League matches, including a double in his last outing against Southampton.
The England midfielder said: “Everyone wants to be getting goals. After the last game as well when I got two and I didn’t get my hat-trick, I wanted to get it today. Most importantly it was a great result.
“It was a solid performance from the start. Watford started the game really quick and made it difficult for us but, after we got the first goal, it was a pretty comfortable win in the end.”
