Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has urged his teammates to pick themselves up and return to winning ways against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
The North London outfit’s three-game winning run in all competitions came to an end on Wednesday when they went down 3-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Although Spurs started the encounter brightly and had early chances through Kane, Jose Mourinho’s side eventually overpowered their London rivals and eased to victory.
Kane, who has been in impressive form in recent matches, believes that the Tottenham players need to put the defeat to Chelsea behind them.
“We’re looking forward to playing in front of our fans again and getting that atmosphere going again," Tottenham’s official website quotes the 21-year-old as saying.
"Everton was the benchmark of how we have to play this season and hopefully we’ll go beyond that against Palace and keep improving.
"We were all disappointed at Chelsea but we can't dwell on that because there are important games coming up, starting against Palace.”
Kane was referring to Tottenham’s 2-1 win against Everton last weekend. Spurs actually had to come from behind to clinch that Premier League match at White Hart Lane, but it was their best home performance of the season.
Both Everton and Chelsea are better sides than Palace, who are currently just a point above the relegation zone.
Tottenham should win against Palace.
