Harry eyeing another fast start at the KP
20 August 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
An ex-Leicester City loanee who bagged a four-goal haul against his former club last season, Harry Kane has the Foxes in his sights once again this weekend – with one clear target in mind.
Hitting the back of the net less than 60 seconds into our 2-1 Boxing Day win at the King Power Stadium last year, the young front man helped himself to his first Premier League hat-trick as we won the White Hart Lane return 4-3 in March.
Also a late substitute in our FA Cup defeat to the Foxes back in January, Harry says he and his team-mates are determined to see off Leicester in the league once more when we return to the KP on Saturday in a bid to register our first victory of 2015-16.
“I think we’ve been a bit unlucky in the last two games, but we’ve been playing some good football so we want to start the game at a high tempo this weekend, keep the ball, create some chances and hopefully get some goals,” said the 22-year-old, who played 15 games for the Foxes on loan back in 2013.
“It’s going to be tough – even last year when we played them in the league we had two tight games and won both by one goal, but we’ve got the ability in our team to perform well and win the match. The points are the most important thing and three of them will be massive for us on Saturday.”
Naturally eager to open his account for the new term after his 31-goal campaign in 2014-15, Harry confirmed he’d love to add to his goalscoring tally against a Leicester side currently brimming with confidence after two wins out of two under new manager Claudio Ranieri.
“Obviously I scored once away and got a hat-trick at home last season so hopefully I can continue that form against them,” added the striker.
“I spent a bit of time at Leicester so I know a few faces there and it will be good to see them – I enjoy playing against them.
“They’ve started well and we know we’re going to be up against it at times, but we know what we’ve got to do. There’s still a long way to go so we’re just concentrating on the game this Saturday and looking to get the three points.”
