Kane fires Spurs rallying call

25th February 2019, 01:17 by Michael Holland

Tottenham will bounce back from the Burnley defeat and get back into the Premier League title race, Harry Kane has said.

Spurs could have moved to within two points of Manchester City and Liverpool, who are now back on top of the table, with victory over Burnley at Turf Moor but slipped to a 2-1 defeat.

It was deja vu for Spurs, who have shown a frustrating tendency over the past few seasons to fail to put their foot on the accelerator when a real title tilt appears to be within their grasp.

Their next three games see them face Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League before taking on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, and Kane says it is the ideal opportunity to show their credentials once again.

"It would be nice if we could have put the pressure on and won the first game and built from that," he said. "We don't always want to be having to react from a poor result. But we'll dust it off. We've still got a lot to play for.

"People will probably say now it's a two-horse race but that's not our problem. All we can do is take care of ourselves. Today was disappointing but we'll look to bounce back as quickly as possible.

"We're a team who don't like to make excuses but we've been playing away from home for the last two years, we've had a tough time, but it is what it is.

"We're in the hunt for the Premier League, we're still in the Champions League so we're in a good place. We've been there for a few years, we've got to see whether we can take it up another level."
