Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed it’s full steam ahead as the side aim for success on all fronts this season.
Spurs are fighting on four fronts this season and while Mauricio Pochettino may want to prioritise the league, Kane has suggested the players are targeting wins in all competitions.
“We all enjoyed the win against Chelsea but we won’t get carried away - We want to do well in all competitions and Burnley away will be a tough tie for us,” Kane told the Tottenham website.
The FA Cup and the League Cup present arguably Tottenham’s best chances of silverware this season.
They’re close to a Wembley final in the League Cup and head into the cup game against Burnley this evening as the favourites for a victory.
The Premier League is obviously important because it represents a way into the Champions League, which is the main goal for Spurs to achieve this season.
A Champions League place could also be obtained by winning the Europa League, but the boss will more than likely want to play it safe and try to qualify via the league format.
The problem for Spurs as they fight on all fronts is the same problem they’ve experienced, and dealt with well, over the last week and a half.
The ratio of games coming thick and fast could cause problems in terms of squad depth, injuries and suspensions, which will prevent Pochettino from being able to select his best side, consistently across all competitions.
However, Spurs did well over the Christmas and New Year period and far from being a problem, Pochettino will more than likely be pleased his players are showing drive and determination to succeed in all competitions.
