Harry Kane identifies advantage Tottenham Hotspur hold over their Premier League rivals in Champions League chase

Tottenham Hotspur are currently two points adrift of the Champions League spots in the Premier League standings.

Harry Kane has told the Guardian that he believes Tottenham Hotspur hold an advantage over the rest of the Champions League chasers in the Premier League as they are flying under the radar.

Spurs have pieced together an impressive opening to the 2015/16 campaign, and remain unbeaten in the league since the opening day of the season.

However, there has been very little discussion over Tottenham's top-four credentials, with much of the attention focused on their top tier rivals. 

And Kane has said: “Nobody is really talking about us and the top four, and that’s probably a good thing. We haven’t lost in the league since the first game of the season. We’ve had a few draws where we should have won as well, but we are playing well and doing the right things.

"We have a fit, young squad and we are training hard. We are happy to stay under the radar and keep putting in good performances because it’s very open this year. That’s down to the standard of the Premier League – anyone can beat anyone, and that’s been shown a lot this season.”

Tottenham have only been beaten twice in all competitions so far this season, and the progression that they have made from last term is clear to see.

Mauricio Pochettino has got the side playing at a high-tempo, and pressing teams quickly - and the tactic has worked brilliantly so far. 

The Lilywhites' young squad have caused problems to every side they have faced, and they will keen to continue their fine run of form after the international break.

Spurs are currently two points adrift of fourth placed Crystal Palace, and they face Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side at the weekend.
