Harry Kane's promise to Spurs fans for the rest of this season

The Tottenham star has been in impressive form this season, and is saying the right things too off the pitch.

The disappointment of Sunday's League Cup final defeat to Chelsea was clear to see on the faces of Tottenham's promising young side.

It was surely felt particularly strongly by those long associated with the club, with the likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Andros Townsend, Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb all coming through the academy to make an impression in the first team.

But Spurs' young English striker Kane has issued a battle call with the race for the Champions League positions hotting up, and has assured fans the players will go all out until the the season's end.

“There is still a long way to go in the season and we have to dust ourselves down as quickly as possible and move on,” Kane told the Spurs website ahead of their game with Swansea City.

“We have to do as well as we can and we’ll give everything for the rest of the season."

Kane and his teammates' commitment to the top-four cause would surely help fans forget the Wembley defeat were they to be successful, and Spurs put in an impressive performance to win their first game in five against the Swans on Wednesday night, emerging victorious 3-2.

Unusually for the North Londoners this season, it wasn't the goalscoring heroics of Kane that helped claim three points, but of fellow homegrown stars Mason and Townsend.

It was Tottenham's first win since their victory over arch-rivals Arsenal last month, and was vital considering the Gunners, as well as Manchester United and Liverpool, all won in the latest round of Premier League fixtures.
