Harry eager to do battle with Blues
02 May 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
“It excites me a lot.”
That’s how Harry Kane says he feels when he looks at the fixture list and sees Chelsea versus Spurs is next up.
With five of his league-best 24 domestic goals having come against London clubs so far this term – not to mention 14 of his overall 63 strikes in his Spurs career to date – the home-grown hitman certainly loves a derby in the capital and will naturally be keen to add to his haul when we make the journey to Stamford Bridge tonight (Monday, May 2).
And as we build up to the 8pm kick-off, the England forward says he’s looking for us to dominate the play in a bid to get the better of the home side.
“Playing London rivals is always a big game for us and this is no different,” said the 22-year-old. “With the situation that we’re in as well, I’m sure Chelsea will be wanting to try to beat us but we’ve got to be prepared for that and make sure we go out there, play the way we have been and really take the game to them.
“We try to play the same way every game – we try to attack, play good football, keep possession and press high. We’ll do the same this week. Chelsea know the way we’re going to play but hopefully if we do it well enough they won’t be able to stop it.”
With Premier League leaders Leicester having dropped points at Manchester United on Sunday, Harry remains confident that we can brush off the disappointment of our own 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion last week and produce a strong performance to prolong the title race into the last fortnight of the campaign.
“It was obviously a disappointing game last week, it was one we wanted to win but again there are still three games left,” he said.
“We’ve just got to do our job, that’s all we can do – focus on tonight, try to beat Chelsea and see what happens.”
