Antonio Conte has revealed that he thinks he can win a trophy at Tottenham with Harry Kane leading the line, following the England captain’s winner against Fulham. 

While Erling Haaland is leading the way in the Premier League scoring charts this season with an incredible 25 goals in 19 games, Kane boasts an impressive 16 in 21 himself (BBC).

However, while Man City have been winning trophies for fun over the past five years, Tottenham have been without silverware since their 2008 Carling Cup win over Chelsea.

To make matters even more frustrating, Kane, who is widely considered to be one of the best strikers in the world, has never won a trophy in his senior career.

Fortunately, serial winner Antonio Conte believes he can change both of those records as he dreams of winning a trophy at the helm of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Lilywhite remain in the FA Cup and Champions League this season, while they continue to fight for a place in the top four of the Premier League.

Following the win over Fulham, Conte said about Kane (Football London):  “We are talking about a player that has fantastic ability and skills.

“For sure, I would like to help him and me also and his team-mates to try to do something important, to win something with Tottenham because he loves Tottenham.

“Tottenham is in his heart and it should be good if together we were able to win something because then it is important to have this record but I think it could be more important if you are good to lift a trophy.”

When asked if he can win a trophy with Kane at Spurs, Conte added: “Yes, I think we have to be dreamers. I spoke to the players and I said today has to be a starting point for us.

“Many times, many times especially after the defeats, you can learn much more than from a win. After the game against Manchester City and also especially the game against Arsenal, it was important to make good reflection with our players and to understand maybe something we lost.

“We lost something compare to last season. Not offensively because last season we were one of the best and today this season we are third in attack in the league but we lost something defensively. I repeat when I say defensively I want to involve the whole team.

“For this reason I spoke with the players to find again their resilience, to show again their desire and their will to defend the result. Yeah, I have intelligent players, smart players and good men. Today they gave me a good answer but I repeat it has to be a starting point.

Then on Saturday we have an important game and we want to go to the next round, the FA Cup away against a Championship team is not easy.

“If we want to be the dreamers we have to know this is an important game for us because the FA Cup is a cup game, then we have also Champions league, 17 games to go in the Premier League and it is up to us.

“If I see this desire again, this commitment, this unity and the will to help each other, I think that we have time to have another good season.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

It’s nice to hear Conte being so positive. At the end of the day, sometimes that’s all you can be. You can create the best team in the world and set up with the best tactics, but the most important thing of all is believing in yourself and your teammates. Fingers crossed Spurs can win the FA Cup this season.
