Harry Kane reveals how Spurs squad reacted to United humbling in training

The 21-year-old has been discussing the Tottenham Hotspur squad's togetherness on the training field.

Tottenham and now England striker Harry Kane has spoken of a togetherness within Mauricio Pochettino's squad - one that helped them get over their 3-0 humbling at Manchester United last Sunday, according to the club's official website.

United dismantled the north London side with considerable ease at Old Trafford, with the Manchester outfit enjoying comfortably their best performance of the season.

The polar opposites, Spurs endured one of their worst - if not their absolute worst - displays.

But Kane says the Tottenham squad have responded the right way in training and, to use a cliche, are raring to go against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

“We all know that Sunday wasn’t a good performance. All the lads are disappointed from that but all the lads have been sharp in training and can’t wait for the next game to perform," Kane said of the Manchester United loss.

“We’ve got a great togetherness here; we’ve got to stick together. Obviously, we don’t have to tell each other that Sunday wasn’t good enough.

“But we’ve had a great week of training, we’ve been working hard together and we know the abilities we can show.”

That togetherness, though, may have benefited Kane more than most this week.

For the Tottenham striker may have been busy celebrating his maiden England call-up - but he'd do well to forget his personal nightmare at Old Trafford.

Indeed, the 21-year-old was dispossessed seven times by Manchester United defenders and lost no less than 16 duels - both comfortably the worst tallies posted by a Spurs player at Old Trafford.

All of Kane's struggles, meanwhile, produced a very meagre return of just one shot on target against Louis van Gaal's men.

Should Manchester United lose at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, however, Tottenham could have gained the three points United deprived them of if they beat Leicester City at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
