The young Tottenham goalscoring sensation Harry Kane sounds like he is writing off Arsenal ahead of today’s clash at White Hart Lane, and after 15 home wins in a row you can understand a little bit of confidence today, but when it comes to the North London Derby there is no room for cockiness.
Kane was reported as saying on SkySports today: “For the fans, it would be great to finish above Arsenal and actually do it by winning against them but, from our point of view, we’ve got bigger things to look forward to,”
“We’ve got to try and win that game to keep the pressure on Chelsea as much as we can.”
“Since the gaffer has been here, he’s changed everything and he’s been fantastic. You see the belief in the squad; you see the way we play,”
“Sometimes, we win 4-0 and we play fantastically and then there are nights like last Wednesday at Crystal Palace when we have to dig deep and get a 1-0 win. We did that and it shows we can do both sides of the game.
“The gaffer has installed his philosophy with the way we play — the pressing and getting the ball down — but he’s also installed that steel in us; that we’ve just got to find a way to win. He’s a very passionate manager and that bleeds into the rest of the team.”
Someone had better tell Kane that Tottenham very rarely beat Arsenal in the derby, so he had better start worrying about today before even considering catching Chelsea. Write off the Gunners at your peril!
