Harry Kane hopes that Manchester City will defeat Liverpool on Thursday night as it will increase Tottenham’s chances to win the league.
As it stands, Spurs are just since points shy of League leader, Liverpool, while they have edged past Manchester City with a point. Although, the position they are on the table is due to the fact that Liverpool and Manchester City have a game in hand.
Addressing newsmen, Kane said, “We’d probably like City to win to make it a little bit closer, but that’s not in our control,” Kane said of the Etihad Stadium clash.
“All we can do is look after ourselves and win our games. Over the last few years we have been in this position with Leicester, and then Chelsea the year after.
“We just have to concentrate on ourselves and winning games is all we can do.
“We will see what happens with Liverpool and City. We can’t think too much about other teams if I’m honest.”
Kane equally explained that his team’s experience in the premier league will help them perform well in the second lap of the season. He stated, “We’ve been there in the title race before and in the past, we’ve done well at this stage and won a lot of games,” Kane said.
“In previous years it’s just been the teams above us have won their games as well. We can’t take anything for granted and do what we can do.
“Liverpool are on top form at the moment, they’re ahead, and deservedly so.
Kane later shed more lights on his team’s recent performances. He said, “The Wolves game was a kick up the bum for us. We were 1-0 up and all of a sudden we were 3-1 down, it shows that in the Premier League you can’t rest on your laurels.
“With the way we’re playing this year we have people running in behind and I’m dropping deeper,” Kane said.
“I’m able to pass out wide and it’s always been a part of my game. We’re scoring a few more of our chances now and this season is probably the most assists I’ve had.
“I base my game around creating chances and people who have watched me in the last few years know I don’t just score goals.
“It’s about everything; hold-up play, moving, creating space for others, and passing. Then, of course, I want to score when I can and, as a striker, you have to do all those things.”
