The Belgian goalkeeper has recently stated that he has analysed the England under-21 forward’s game in the lead-up to the Wembley clash.
Although the comments may well have been designed to throw the 21-year-old off his game, the Spurs legend feels that Courtois’ words could come back to haunt him.
King has stated that Kane will find Courtois’ words as a source of motivation and will want to make the stopper regret his comments in tomorrow’s London derby.
"I think, if I was Harry, I’d like that because it’s a challenge,” King told The London Evening Standard.
“As a player, as a professional you take on the challenge so it’s obviously due to confidence that a keeper like Courtois can come out and say that and it shows he has a lot of confidence in his ability.
“Knowing Harry I’m sure he’ll be looking to prove him wrong. It’s a nice situation and I think it’s a good battle to be looking forward to.”
Kane has scored 24 goals in all competitions this season and bagged a brace during a man of the match performance against the Blues in a 5-3 Tottenham victory on New Year’s Day.
Spurs’ last piece of silverware came in the 2008 League Cup final, where the White Hart Lane outfit came back from a goal down to beat the Blues 2-1 after extra time.
